Tri-State Bride Speaks On Struggles of Planning a Covid-19 Wedding

From having to wear masks at her bridal shower to having a hard time finding a wedding dress, with businesses closed down, one tri-state bride is trying to brave through the hardships of planning a wedding during a pandemic so she can marry the man she loves.

Planning a wedding can be stressful for any bride, but trying to pull one off during a pandemic -- has been a nightmare for many.

One tri-state bride, 20-year-old Emily Ashby of Evansville, says while she could have pushed her wedding back, the headache of downsizing her guest list and dealing with closed down wedding dress businesses, is worth it to finally marry the person she loves.

"I never pictured I'd be planning my wedding with everything like this going on,” Ashby said. "It's definitely different -- you know wanting everyone that you love and care for to be at your wedding on your big day to see you walk down the aisle."

As of now, the bride and her fiance are getting married and honeymooning in Gatlinburg, TN this March.

But even with fewer people attending the socially distanced wedding, they are worried about the area being a hot-spot, with a high number of Covid-19 cases.
