Greetings! My name is Nichole Plugge and I’m the associate publisher for Nebraska Wedding Day. Over the past couple of months, I haven’t been able to turn off my mind because of so many unknowns for Nebraska couples and wedding vendors.
I have been thinking of different ways to partner with wedding businesses during this time, how to support couples changing their dreams and the new reality of future wedding days. As a publisher, a past bride, and a partner in the Nebraska wedding community, my heart goes out to all of you. I try to imagine and understand what is running through the hearts and minds of couples right now, and of our Nebraska wedding vendors as well. I also try to imagine the brides and grooms, and the challenges and emotions they are facing with rescheduling, postponing, and all the little details necessary to make wedding dreams a reality. Then, I think of all the operations that would need to be accomplished within a venue to make sure the couple’s day would be absolutely perfect, but still provide a safe, healthy and happy environment for their guests, their team of people working at the wedding, and for the couple themselves.
Finally, I think about the wedding vendors. These incredible people are the main resource that will ensure that an amazing wedding day will happen, no matter if it’s postponed or not. They truly are the magicians who make all these crises disappear and surround you with positive energy for your wedding day. They got this! That’s why you hire them—they will take care of you.
