Getting married in a global pandemic

Hi again! As we’re coming into another very different wedding season, I thought I would look back at how my husband and I got married. How it felt in the middle of a pandemic, and the steps we took to ensure our guests stayed safe!

What’s it like being married?

Last Saturday we hit our 6 months married milestone! I’m sure once the years add up 6 months will be a distant memory, but I thought now would be a good time to look back over the last few months and think about how married life has been.

What wedding traditions did we do?

Wedding Traditions are a personal opinion to each couple, some feel they are outdated, and others enjoy taking part in traditions. Here’s some of the more well known traditions and if we took part in them on our wedding day.

Etsy and our wedding

I tried to be very conscientious when we were picking our vendors for our wedding. I wanted them to be a small business and/or local when possible.

This was easy enough with our venue, cake, hair and makeup, my dress was from a local shop (even though the designer is Australian), and even our favours were mini jars of jam from Tiptree (also local to us). For other aspects of our wedding day, I turned to Etsy for inspiration.

Our wedding colours

So just like that, we already had three of our wedding colours (navy, plum and gold). We eventually added burgundy into the mix after our meeting with our florist who suggested roses (luckily our wedding favours of mini jam jars also matched the burgundy!).
