Couple Who Got Matching Tattoos Of Their Wedding Date Must Now Postpone Due To Coronavirus!
A couple could have never predicted COVID-19 when they decided to get matching tattoos of their now cancelled wedding date. Francis Donald and Fionnuala Kearney decided to get some ink ahead of their wedding date which was originally planned for October 16 2020 after getting engaged three years ago.
Speaking to News.com.au the social worker from Ireland said: “We were in Turkey and had checked out of our hotel at 9am, but had to wait until the evening for our flight home – so we decided to go on a bar crawl.”
Warning bells should’ve gone off right there! They were in a foreign country and were about to embark on a pub crawl all before noon. “We strolled past a tattoo salon and we were tipsy, so thought it was a great idea to get matching tattoos,” she continued.
When they decided to get their wedding date permanently tattooed onto their arms, she says they were meticulous in making sure the roman numerals were correct.
“It’s funny because we were being extra careful to make sure we got the Roman numerals correct, and the staff were teasing us, saying, ‘Are you sure that’s the right date?’”
The went on to say they “often make spur of the moment decisions” and while they initially loved their matching tattoos Covid-19 changed all that!
“When I was told we would have to postpone the wedding I was devastated of course – but we only realised afterwards about our tattoos,” Fionnuala explained.
The couple have since changed their wedding day to April 22, 2021 and say they are now looking for something memorable to do on the day of their now postponed wedding.
Fionnuala said, “Somebody suggested that we do a skydive, other people have said we should lie and tell people the tattoos say the right date.”
Whatever they decide to do, at least they’ll have a memorable story to tell their kids one day!
