Olemme päättäneet siirtää häämme kokonaan ensi vuoteen.

Päätös ei ollut helppo, ja tuskailimme sen kanssa pitkän aikaa. Olimme kumpikin jo useita viikkoja sitten tulleet siihen tulokseen, että järjellä ajatellen siirto olisi meille ainoa oikea vaihtoehto. Kesti kuitenkin aikansa, ennen kuin olimme myös tunnetasolla valmiita tekemään päätöksen.

Kaikkein tärkein syy siirtoon on riskiryhmään kuuluvien läheistemme turvallisuus. Emme missään nimessä halunneet saada aikaan tilannetta, jossa joku riskiryhmään kuuluva sairastuisi häissämme koronaviruksen aiheuttamaan covid19-tautiin. Emme myöskään halunneet, että riskiryhmäläiset joutuisivat jäämään häistämme pois. Esimerkiksi oma äitini kuuluu ikänsä puolesta riskiryhmään, enkä kestäisi ajatusta, ettei hän uskaltaisi olla mukana häissämme.

Lisäksi siirtopäätökseen vaikutti se, että juhliimme on kutsuttu vieraita ulkomailta, ja hääkuvaajammekin on ulkomaalainen. Tämän vuoksi haluaisimme juhlia häitämme tilanteessa, jossa Suomen rajat ovat auki ja tänne voi matkustaa niistäkin maista, joita pandemia tällä hetkellä koettelee kovin. Vieraamme olisivat tulossa Yhdysvalloista ja Espanjasta, joissa koronatilanne on tällä hetkellä todella synkkä, ja pidimme lähes mahdottomana, että he voisivat tänä kesänä matkustaa. Osa vieraista oli jo itse ilmoittanutkin, että he siirtäisivät Suomen-matkansa ensi vuoden kesään riippumatta siitä, siirtäisimmekö me häät vai emme.

 

Oli surullista luopua alkuperäisestä hääpäivästä. Päivä oli onneksi alun perin valikoitunut meille sattumanvaraisesti eikä sillä ollut sen suurempaa tunnearvoa kuin se, mitä oli ehtinyt kehittyä häitä suunnitellessa ja järjestäessä. Silti päivä oli alkanut tuntua omalta, ja siitä luopuminen teki kipeää.

Eniten minua huolettaa se, että alkuperäisenä hääpäivänämme sattuisi olemaan aivan ihana sää mutta uutena hääpäivänämme sää olisi huono. Se olisi vähän sama juttu kuin jos olisi unohtanut lotota ja juuri sillä kerralla oma vakiorivi voittaisi. Mutta ei auta kuin toivoa, ettei niin käy!

Sää on silti pikkuseikka sen rinnalla, miten paljon arvelemme koronan vaikuttavan häiden tunnelmaan. Tämä olikin kolmas syy siirtopäätökseemme: Uskomme, että juhlista tulee paljon ihanammat, jos koronaviruksen uhka on ensin väistynyt. Emme haluaisi häitä, joissa vieraat pitäisivät toisiinsa etäisyyttä tartunnan pelossa ja joista kuka tahansa läheinen saattaa viime hetkellä joutua jäämään pois, jos saa lieviä flunssan oireita. Sitten kun elämä lopulta palautuu normaaliksi ja ihmisten lähellä olo on taas turvallista, juhliminen tuntuu varmasti pitkän sosiaalisen eristyneisyyden jälkeen vielä paljon ihanammalta.

 

Vaikka päätös oli vaikea, olemme vakuuttuneita siitä, että se oli meille oikea. Samaa vakuuttivat meille vieraamme, kun kerroimme päätöksestämme. Osa myös kiitteli sitä, että päätimme asian niinkin pitkällä varoitusajalla. (Teimme päätöksen jo reilu kuukausi sitten mutta päätimme kertoa asiasta blogissa vasta, kun olisimme tavoittaneet kaikki vieraat.)

Halusimmekin tehdä ratkaista asian ajoin ennen kaikkea vieraittemme vuoksi. Kaukaa tulevat ovat jo joutuneet miettimään matkajärjestelyittensä mahdollista siirtoa, ja koska kukaan meistä ei asu hääpaikkakunnallamme Hangossa, on läheltäkin tulevien vieraiden siirrettävä hotellivarauksensa. Meitä huoletti myös, että epätietoisuus häiden kohtalosta voisi olla ahdistavaa riskiryhmäläisille, jos he pelkäisivät joutuvansa valitsemaan turvallisuutensa ja häihimme osallistumisen välillä.

Myös meille itsellemme päätöksen tekeminen selkiytti asioita. Monet hääjärjestelyt olivat jumissa niin pitkään, kun harkitsimme siirtoa. Esimerkiksi hääkutsuja emme olleet ehtineet vielä ennen koronatilanteen kärjistymistä tilata, olimmehan lähettäneet Save the Date -kortit, eikä varsinaisilla kutsuilla siksi ollut kiire. Kun tajusimme saattavamme joutua siirtämään häät, panimme kutsujen tilaamisen jäihin, jotta emme turhaan maksaisi kutsuista, joissa olisi mahdollisesti väärä päivämäärä. (Enpä olisi Save the date -kortteja tilatessamme osannut aavistaa, että niistä koituisi meille tällaista säästöä.) Nyt kun häiden siirtyminen on varmaa, voimme huoletta siirtää monet to do -listan kohdat pitkälle tulevaisuuteen.

Blogin kannalta hääjärjestelyiden siirtyminen on iloinen asia. Onneksi päätin aloittaa hääbloggaamisen siitä huolimatta, että häihin oli tuolloin enää puolisen vuotta aikaa, mikä teki blogin elinkaaresta epäkäytännöllisen lyhyen. Blogin nimikin on nyt vielä osuvampi kuin alun perin. Kun tästä koronasta joskus vielä selvitään ja päästään juhlimaan, aika moni hääpari taitaa huokaista mielessään ”Vihdoinkin!”.
