Covid 19 has played havoc with weddings here in Ireland and around the world so many couples having to postpone their wedding day. If you are feeling depressed and powerless you’re not the only one. In this blog post we have come with a few ideas to help you cope with the disappointment.
Feeling Depressed About Postponing Your Wedding
From all here at Drangan Video we are so sorry that your special day has been postponed our thoughts are with you A wedding is one of the biggest events in a couples life it binds two people together for life.
Organizing a wedding is an emotional time with a huge build to the big day months of planning and clever financial management are just the tip of the iceberg. Then having to postpone and re-plan all over again is very difficult to handle.
A wedding cancellation is a huge life changing event for a couple, but with everything that’s going on in the world over the past few months if all your loved ones are healthy and well, you are still very lucky and all is not lost. When you’re trying to come to terms with having to postpone your big day, you might also be feeling guilty for not appreciating what you do have, this is typical human reaction the most important thing you can do is to accept that you are allowed to feel sad. We understand that our brain reacts differently to certain emotions that inner voice might be saying this is the worst thing that has ever happened I cannot cope with this terrible news it is not what I wanted.
It is natural to feel all of those emotions each partner may experience them at at different times or in different ways just because they are not showing their emotions in the way that you are, it doesn’t mean they aren’t feeling them. Men do have a tendency to hide their feelings where as women like to talk about and share their emotions. The worst thing you can do is tell your partner that they are overreacting, being oversensitive or taking things out of proportion, just listen and accept their point of view. You don’t have to fully agree but acknowledge your partners point of view and tell them that they make sense.
Going forward think about the bigger picture, you are both healthy and well you will get married, it’s not at the time you had originally planned but you have the rest of you lives to enjoy being married. Look to the future think about about the stories you can tell your children years from now. How you coped as a couple, How you worked together as a couple to overcome the challenge. Some couples have been keeping a lock down diary to remind them of how they got through this time with strength and resilience, just remember that its just one postponed day in your life and your relationship is far more meaningful that that.
