The Creative Care Package
In light of everything that is going on in our world right now, we wanted to do our part to bring happiness to you; something to take your minds off these scary, unprecedented times. Something to make you smile.
While we recognize that there is so much uncertainty right now, we also recognize that there is a lot of good happening in our community and we want to share and highlight that. In the coming weeks, we will be sharing some of what is happening in our community, only the good, because I think we all need it! This week we're sharing resources for the brides and grooms who are having to postpone and/or cancel their weddings, as well as some great things to keep you busy and positive.
Without further ado, here is the first week of The Creative Care Package!
Assets For The Brides & Grooms Who Are Postponing Their Wedding
First off, if you are a bride or groom that has had to postpone or cancel your wedding due to COVID-19, our heart goes out to you. We know how much time, thought, and energy goes into planning a wedding and can't even begin to imagine what you are going through.
Our friends at The Knot have created a step-by-step guide on how to postpone your wedding, so that you don’t have to think about the steps to take. Click here to get the guide.
ALSO, there are some wonderful people in our community who are offering free (or extremely discounted) digital assets to inform your guests of new or postponed wedding arrangements. Here are just a few:
