The Covid-19 pandemic has turned life upside down. Many important decisions were delayed because of the presence of this uninvited plague. One of them is the decision to postpone marriage during a pandemic. Postponement of marriage due to the pandemic is generally motivated by the desire to hold a festive wedding party as expected.
It’s a shame because this desire goes against the necessity of social distancing to suppress the spread of Covid-19. But, did you know that getting married during the pandemic has many attractive benefits, including financial benefits? Come on, check out what these benefits are:
1. Can hold a simple wedding
Maybe it is your dream or your partner to hold a wedding that is simple and only attended by your family. But the demands of your parents, family, and neighbors make you throw a big party. Now maybe it’s time to realize your dream marriage and your partner, right?
2. Does not cost a lot
A party that only contains family or the closest people will certainly not cost a lot. There are no decorations, luxury catering, to rent buildings. Doing the show at home is enough too, right?
3. There is extra time to save
In many cases, some have already paid for down payments, decorations, catering, photos, and so on. If it can be canceled it is better, but if it can’t be better, it is better to postpone the wedding date until a safe time. You also have plenty of time during this pandemic to continue working and raise funds for the wedding later.
4. Can break the chain of habit holding a luxurious party
In Indonesia, it seems like it is customary for a wedding to be held lavishly and on a large scale. In the end, it becomes a burden for you and others because you have to prepare a lot of funds. The same is true of parents. You realize it or not they will be burdened and make it your responsibility. Lucky for those who are well off, if not what?
Maybe by having a simple or intimate wedding party, you become one of the people who can break the chain of custom, large and lavish wedding parties.
