There are hundreds of thousands of couples right now across the world who have had to make the decision to cancel or postpone their wedding day due to the Covid-19 outbreak. If you are one of those couples, I am so so sorry you are having to go through this. Some people may say 'it's for the best', 'you will still get to have your special day' or 'at least you are happy and healthy'... and yes whilst all of these things are true, it's still really crappy and stressful for any couple dealing with the prospect of changing anything about their day. So feel all of the feelings, cry and stomp your feet if you have too, heck go ahead and eat your wedding favours if it makes you feel better.
Seriously though I am sending you all of the love and hugs right now. As both a vendor and a 2020 (maybe?) bride I hear your pain and sadness. Right now the idea of 'celebrating' your original wedding date may seem completely ridiculous or just too heartbreaking... but hear me out.
This is the day you have been planning for years, and I can promise you it won't be a date you will forget any time soon, so why not make the most of it! As one of my amazing brides beautifully put it... turn your into a 'should-have-been' into your 'wedding day - part 1'. And if you are a little stuck on how you can make it a day to remember take a look through my top 9 Covid-Wedding ideas below, and add your own ideas to the comments for other couples to see.
1. Throw a zoom wedding party
Get your close family and wedding party onto a video sharing app and feel like they are with you. Book out a morning champagne breakfast, afternoon tea, or party the night away with drinking games, fancy dress and parody speeches.
2. Have your first dance
More time to practice your killer dance moves or sophisticated twirling can never be a bad thing. Heck do your first dance on the hour every hour (maybe a bit much?).
