Hey friendors and brides ❤️⠀ ⠀ News is changing so fast every hour. Yesterday, when I created this, it was recommended that groups of 50 people should avoid each other, this included weddings. Today, the number is 10. TEN 😳 I am so so so devastated for upcoming brides who are now scrambling to reschedule. I want to encourage you to postpone as opposed to canceling!
