Planning Your Wedding During COVID: A Discussion Forum for Engaged Interfaith Couples – Online

September 3, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT


You’re getting married!! Hooray!! Mazel Tov!! We have lots of resources for you.

While planning your wedding can be exciting and fun and difficult at times, there are a whole set of unique challenges when planning your wedding during a major pandemic. Some couples have postponed their wedding dates, others have chosen to host smaller more intimate weddings, and still others have chosen to have two ceremonies (one small, perhaps even virtual one, and then a larger wedding later).

Regardless of when you’ve decided to get married, you’ve surely dealt with uncertainty and frustration – as well as lots of other emotions. It’s likely that your wedding isn’t going to be what you originally hoped for and planned (which doesn’t mean that it’ll be any less wonderful, just different). There are lots of issues that you have to deal with whether you’ve decided to go ahead and have your wedding in the next few months (how many people do you invite? What kids of social distancing and other safety precautions will you follow?, etc.) or whether you’ve postponed it until later (how do you plan a wedding when you don’t know what the future will hold?).

Sometimes it can really help to talk to other couples who “get” what you’re going through. If you’re currently engaged, whether or not you have a wedding date at this point, we hope you’ll join us for this special Discussion Forum on September 3rd at 8:00PM EDT where couples will have the opportunity to share their experiences and the decisions they’re making, and where you’ll hear from 18Doors’ Rabbi Robyn and Rabbi Malka about their experiences and advice from working with numerous interfaith wedding couples.
