Throughout this pandemic, we have all been dealing with our own unique issues. Some people have lost their businesses, some have experienced the tragedy of losing loved ones, and some have had to cancel their weddings. Love, however, was not canceled—even if the wedding was. So today I want to explain what I believe to be a silver lining of these canceled or delayed weddings and why I think this may have saved you money.

Listen in as I explain the importance of considering where you are financially before the wedding and where you want to be financially after the wedding. If you start your married life on the right foundation and plan together to accomplish your life’s goals, you can have that happy ending you are searching for.

What I have observed during this pandemic is that people found new ways to connect.” - Tracey Bissett
