Has anyone eloped or done a zoom wedding? Any regrets? I wouldn’t mind a small wedding/reception, but I can’t help but think zoom might feel a little lonely/unreal.

I had a full 150 person wedding 5 years ago. I planned and paid for it myself. My husband really wanted to do it for our families, but looking back, I wish we had just eloped with maybe a photographer, or had an immediate family only wedding. The stress and the money was not worth it for me. That $25k could have gone to the down payment on the house we now own. We have some lovely pictures but it was far from the best day of my life, lol. You could always do zoom now and then have a reception when things are safer. By then, you might just not even care about the wedding!

I planned 150 person wedding for May 2020. The date meant a lot to us so we did a small backyard wedding for just immediate family and zoomed with everyone else. Am I glad I had the small wedding? Heck yeah!! In this craziness I’m glad I married my best friend and living in California I don’t think a large wedding is feasible any time soon. It was also a blast my brother has mad skills making playlists and we danced the night away. Do I wish I had the big wedding I planned? YES and I’ll be holding a rager two year anniversary in 2022.

Had a living room wedding, myself, my now husband, and my kid. Well, officiant at well. Have zero regrets. It was very "us". Second marriage for both of us. Not sure if I wanted something bigger otherwise.

We did had 8 people at our wedding in Jamaica. Was perfect and super low stress. Came home, did the courthouse thing, and had a fun party later.

Pro tip: finding it hard to disconnect while working from home? At the end of the day, actually power down your laptop and pack it away in your bag with your power cords,mouse, etc. same you would if you were leaving the office or traveling. Need to take it a step further? Also disable your email/Skype notifications on your phone so your not tempted to check them immediately. Happy Memorial Day weekend FB!

My firm normally has annual review meetings in August and pay raises take effect on October 1st. On a call held in early September they said the meetings would actually take place at the end of September. Next, there was a zoom call last week in which management did not mention reviews at all until someone asked when they will be, and they said “soon”. Thoughts?

In other words, the recruiting has been excessively relaxed now compared to when there was intense competition.
