The wedding day is a memorable day that puts a smile on both the groom and the bride’s face.
Planning for such a glamourous day could be very stressful and it becomes more stressful if you have to postpone it due to various reasons including the outbreak of the novel disease.
In my opinion, the wedding should come off, at least it will save some cost.
Whether postponed or not, preparations must still go on and the lady is usually seen to be the pivot in the process.
If you are the groom, these tips will help you be a part of the whole preparation process.

This will help you discuss the right people to put on the list and prevent any arguments that may result if a certain family member or friend is not invited.
