|Dear Friends and Family,|
Michelle and Alex, here. We hope you are staying safe and well amid the chaos! There are a lot of things on our minds, and I’m sure on yours, but we wanted to send a quick note to update you on our impending nuptials:
“Wait. What nuptials? You guys are getting married? Where’s my invitation?”
If you’re receiving this message, you should have received an invitation in the mail from us. They were mailed out the last week of February, but we’re learning that some of them never made it. So weird—USPS is usually so reliable. If you haven’t gotten yours, would you let Michelle know? We’d love to get one out to you. In the meantime, please check out our website for the details: junotthecampbells.com.
“But like…you guys…are still getting married…what?”
Okay, well…that’s tricky. We still want to get married on May 2; we’re still praying and hoping that the steps we’re all taking (Stay inside! Wash your hands!) could help diminish the spread of the virus by mid-April. However, as they say, hope is not a strategy. We’re currently talking with our families and our vendors to develop plans B and C.
“So…you don’t really have a plan…”
No, we do–we definitely have a plan. We have a full Plan A and a partial Plan B, and well, we actually have no plan C yet—Michelle just likes saying we have a plan C, because it makes us feel prepared and in control. The honest to God truth is that this decision is loaded with feelings and expectations and an airline pilot’s schedule that is quite-literally (and figuratively) up in the air at the moment.
“So what do you want from us?”
We want you to know, sincerely, that we are grateful for all the phone calls and texts and encouragement. And we also realize you may need to make travel adjustments before we make a final call on Plan A or B. Please do whatever you feel is necessary to keep you and yours safe with the information you have. If you have flexible flights and can hang with us a couple weeks longer—join us on the hope train. If you were never going to come to our wedding no matter what the date is, that’s okay, too! Just send that little RSVP back our way or shoot Michelle a text, and we’ll take you off our update list :). And if you need to change your RSVP at some point, we totally get it. Just email or text Michelle when you know.
Actually, if you can send Michelle your email address if she doesn’t already have it, that would be amazing! (Hers is firstname.lastname@example.org). We want to keep you in the loop as we figure this thing out.
Finally, please just know we want to do what is best for everyone involved while still pausing to celebrate this exciting milestone in our lives. We’re so grateful for all of you! Stay safe, and please let us know how you’re doing. We know this is hitting a lot of people economically, emotionally, and for some, physically. We’re sending love and support from afar and we’ll be in touch soon!
The Future Mr. and Mrs. Alex Campbell
