The COVID-19 pandemic has affected billions of people around the world in one way or another. It has certainly turned out to be a party pooper for marriages that have been set to close in the past few months. Many of them were canceled, and those that actually took place had limited capacity for guests.
Sarah Studley, a resident of Baltimore, USA, wanted a dream wedding, but the pandemic made it impossible. According to the state’s COVID-19 guidelines, a large gathering is prohibited at wedding and religious ceremonies. Unfortunately Sarah had to be content with a smaller and more intimate wedding.
However, with COVID-19 vaccination campaigns going on in the US, Sarah decided to do something unique and fun with her wedding dress. On Sunday (April 18), Studley decided to put on her wedding clothes and wear them to her vaccination appointment.
Pictures of Sarah vaccinated in her wedding dress were posted on Twitter by the University of Maryland Medical System. In the photos, Sarah can be seen wearing a white wedding dress with mesh and polka dots detailing while getting vaccinated.
“Here comes the bride … to get vaccinated at the M&T Bank Stadium mass vaccination site! Instead of just leaving the beautiful dress in her closet for her wedding reception, which was canceled by the pandemic, Sarah Studley wore it to get vaccinated, ”according to the University of Maryland Medical System.

While speaking with WJZ-TV, Sarah said it was a feast for her.
“There were so many deep moments during the pandemic, so many things that have been canceled, this dress represents, if nothing else, hope,” she said.
Sarah Studely got engaged to her husband in 2019, according to a report in the Baltimore Sun. The couple had planned a large wedding ceremony, including a reception with about 100 people in attendance.
However, due to the pandemic, the plans never saw the light of day and the couple had to get married in a small civil ceremony followed by a dinner attended only by close friends and family members.
