The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we go about our lives, and this includes the limiting of social gatherings like weddings to follow physical distancing guidelines. One good example is Richard Guttierez and Sarah Lahbati. They chose to have a low-key civil ceremony instead of the lavish church nuptials they've originally planned.
There are other stories of Pinoy couples who wore t-shirts and jeans to their wedding, streamed their ceremony via a Zoom video call, and then there's Sarah, who kept her look low-key. The trend now is to pare down to essentials. Brides and grooms would rather focus on the real priority: To be husband and wife and show their lifetime commitment to each other.
Until no cure or vaccine for COVID-19 is discovered, it's safer to have a low-key wedding ceremony. You can opt for a small gathering, wear a simple dress, and maybe be your own bridal glam team. Not only you'll save money on makeup artist fees, but your look will have a personal touch—which is priceless.
