Let me start by saying I love weddings. I’m not one of those people who complains when they receive their fifth wedding invitation for the year or the type who eye-rolls when a couple calls their wedding day "the best day of their lives."
I love seeing people in love and I definitely love celebrating love. But I also know what I’m going to say next, to anyone getting married in 2020 at least (or those trying to), will be deeply unpopular.
Should you be having your wedding in the middle of a global pandemic? Look, probably not. Actually, on second thought, make that definitely not.
Watch: Things people never say at weddings. Post continues below.
As someone who is getting married in 2021, I completely get it. It’s a sh*t time for everyone, particularly those of us who happened to get engaged prior to the dumpster fire that this year descended into.
Being in the depths of planning my own wedding, I also know what you’re going to say in rebuttal. It sounds like this:
‘But we’re enforcing the four square metre rule.’
‘But all of our guests will be seated.’
‘But we’re not having a dance floor.’
‘But we’re going to give our bridal party masks to match their outfits!’
