We live and breathe weddings here at Engage Weddings.
We have seen first hand how 2020 has affected couples, and those who work in the wedding industry.
However, many of our talented suppliers have made it their mission to turn a negative into a positive
by channeling their talents into other things!
Today we hope to remind you to find the positives where you can, and to remember that you will get your big day!
For more tips on finding the positive with your postponed wedding see our other posts:
