COVID-19 – What it means for your wedding plans and ways to stay mentally, emotionally, and physically healthy during Quarantine

Let’s be honest, there are many unknowns out there, which has raised the amount of anxiety that we all feel. I’m going to provide links to helpful articles about planning your wedding during COVID-19, people to follow to reduce stress and limit your amount of anxiety, and free workout resources.

Let’s get started…

MENTAL HEALTH: Follow the facts, but don’t let the facts control your mental health! 

We all need to stay informed, but there is a huge difference between watching the news all day vs. checking it once or twice a day. I also want to say that sitting on the couch all day watching TV since you’re working from home, or you’re out of work, is totally adding to your stress. In these coming weeks I think it’s going to be important to create daily schedules. Schedules help with anxiety and the feelings of uncertainty.

To all of my brides –  I know you are all feeling a little uneasy, but we haven’t reached a time where you should panic. However, I think it’s important to be informed. Please checkout the resources below with regards to the wedding industry and when to start thinking of pushing your wedding to a later month. As of today, cancelling your wedding altogether isn’t necessary and neither is pushing it to 2021. 


  1. My friend Keri at Always Yours Events wrote a very well thought out blog post about planning your wedding during COVID-19. Find her blog post HERE
  2. Harpers Bazaar recently came out with an article that talks about the next few months and what to consider when planning your wedding. Find that article HERE

EMOTIONAL: HEALTH We all need to stay healthy, virtually connected, and positive. I know this is easier said than done, but during this time it’s going to be important to prioritize your mental, emotional, and physical health. 

Over the years I’ve dealt with some grief and loss and I learned to lean on spirituality and yoga. These things helped my anxiety levels and I bet they’ll help yours too. Don’t worry, you don’t have to sit around a circle with a bunch of random women and cry on their shoulders, although I’ve done this plenty of times thanks to the yoga community.

Instead of following all the news sources, or random accounts on Instagram that don’t add any value, try to fill up your feed with some positivity. Following people like Gabrielle Bernstein.

2. Deepak Chopra – Mediation Guru and Spiritual Guide

If you’re having a hard time emotionally and mentally Deepak brings it back to basics. He has meditations on Spotify, his Instagram and his website. I used his meditations on Spotify because they’re short and sweet.

PHYSICAL HEALTH: Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

If you can get outside and go on a remote hike or walk you should, as long as your social distancing. However, if you live in an apartment or dense city, there are many ways to stay active even if you’re stuck quarantining yourself at home.
