Are you trying to navigate planning your wedding during the COVID-19 outbreak? I've complied a few tips to help you during your planning stages so that you don't have to cancel your special day. If you are in the Calgary and Banff area and are needing some extra help, I'd love to chat with you more. But for now, here is what I recommend.
Tip #1. (& this is the most important, to me)
Do NOT Stress!
I know it is easier said then done, but trust me on this one. If you do your very best not to consume yourself in all the fear the media is trying to spread it will help you not panic as much while trying to multitask and plan your special day. It's easy to get overwhelmed and start living in fear but it's at times like this that we need to try to remain calm, level headed and sort out the best options. Canceling everything is an impulse caused by fear and most of the time will only make things worse.. Which leads me to my next tip.
Hire a photographer who specializes in elopements!
This one is almost important as the first, why? Well, being an adventure elopement photographer myself, I can't even tell you how much more entwined I become in your special day. I help my couples plan out timelines, find vendors, I location scout and so much more! Hiring someone who knows all the amazing places is key. Elopements are intentional, intimate, and all about the love you two share with one another and having someone who knows how to hand craft an epic day takes so much stress off of you!
One perk of booking with Fly Free is you get access to all of our amazing vendors (the Fly Free Family) at a discounted rate! So not only do I help you hand craft a perfect day but also give you discounts as well!! =) It's a win win for you!
Elope now, party later!
There is nothing stopping you from having the date and the day of your dreams, but maybe just in a little bit of a different way. If you are faced with not being able to have all your loved ones with you but have your heart set on a date ( I know I did ) that's 100% okay and we can make it work! You can still elope, have a beautiful ceremony, epic photos, say vows to one another, exchange rings ect. and then at a later date plan an awesome reception for everyone to be at!
Double perk of working with us is that we are a soon to be, husband and wife team that do both photo & video! So yes, we can record your beautiful ceremony & elopement day awesomeness and then you can play it for everyone at your reception to relive the day with you!
So at the end of the day, please please please don't cancel your wedding out of fear, there are options. It can still be absolutely stunning & with the right team behind you it should be near to stress free for you. So you can simply enjoy your special day with your hubby to be!
If you or anyone you know needs help planning their special day or would like some more tips on how to do things, please feel free to reach out, I would love to chat with you and help make this time as stress free as possible!!
We are 100% here for you & always have our gear ready for awesome adventures!!
