We know there are way bigger problems in the world right now, but for every 2020 bride, it is completely normal to grieve your postponed wedding. After months or years of planning what was supposed to be one of the most special days of your life, it can be heartbreaking to have it canceled. You may feel angry, sad, or disappointed, and it is important to know that you are not alone.
Emotions are at an all-time high when your dreams are completely crushed. Since there is so much uncertainty in the world we are living in, it is important to find a support system to help you process your feelings of loss. Ignore those in your life who find your feelings trivial, you have a right to have feelings and if others cannot accept that, then they are not your friend. You should be respected, heard, and acknowledged.
To process your grief, surround yourself with supportive friends and other brides who are in the same situation as you. We recommend joining bridal support groups on Facebook. We are in a few ourselves and launched our own private Facebook group, Mine Tribe, to give you an outlet to share your wedding highs and lows. We want to help you process your grief with open arms.
After processing your loss and dealing with the disappointment, you can begin to see the silver lining in a postponed wedding. After all, celebrations should be filled with hugs, laughter, and smiles, which no one can see behind a mask. Your day will come, and it will be more beautiful than all of 2020!
