THREE FACTS: THREE FACTS: (1) Alexandra and Ian are planning an intimate black-tie destination wedding for 60 of their nearest and dearest in Puglia, Italy. (2) Alexandra is Jewish, and Ian is in the process of converting to Judaism. (3) Alexandra is a member of Smashing The Glass’s Brides Club!
When planning a covid wedding nothing is ever simple. Right now we are still trying to figure out when we are going to do our legal ceremony. Italy is still on for 2022. I think we are going to do early spring. I keep having this fear that all of the things we planned are never going to happen.
I’m still obsessed with my original wedding dress. Trying it on before it was put into longterm storage felt emotional. I have this fear that I’m never going to get to wear it at our religious ceremony. With everything that has happened this last year it’s hard to imagine things going to plan.
We still need to tell our ketubah artist what date we would like to put on it. We are pretty sure about our 2022 date but what if things change again?!
During this time filled with upheaval for so many we need to focus on the things we can control. Library science school has been really great because I’m able to actively move towards the future Ian and I want. Ian recently started a new job where he’s so happy. This has been such a bright spot this year. We are also so lucky that Ian and our family and friends who caught covid were able to recover. 2021 looks different than we imagined but I’m excited to be spending it with Ian by my side.
