I'm working with a local organization to set up food distribution at a location, and mid meeting (3:00pm ish) we had a party planner roll in and start setting up for a wedding mere hours later. One of the halls here is in a building connected to retirement home. I got married there myself. Apparently a resident tested positive and the entire building, flowers, food, and all, went on lockdown. They ended up transferring it all over in atter of hours to a more local cheder gym/lunchroom. Craziness.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

so many small weddings going on and i literally cry by each video.  its less than what they did in the old shtetl.  barely minyan for bentching. and there is nothing we can do about it.  many couples are taking it in stride. but some looked like they were on the verge of crying   :'( :'( :'(

This is worth crying over?! Bh they are getting married! Hopefully everyone will stay healthy. With the zchus of not having blood on their hands, by not perpetuating the spread of the virus, they can go and build a bayis neman.

None of this changes the fact that it's a very sad situation.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

100% but this is what Hashem wants now, its easy to say though, it must be very hard for them.
But its OK to feel "hope" that a middle way can be adopted going forward

It would be much harder for them if something ch"v happens to, lets say, a grandparent from them not being careful enough.

While this is true, put yourself into their shoes for a minute. Imagine you are the choson getting married. This is once in a lifetime for you. You dreamt of this day from the day you were born. Wouldnt you be disappointed? I applaud each and every one of such chasunos as it is absolutely the right thing to do in such a time. But I cannot imagine how tough it is for them.
