I just want to get that off our chest before we delve deeper into this post.. does that feel better? Good, now let’s get on to the good stuff.
If you are reading this, you may have had to postpone your wedding because of the pandemic. In the meantime you find your original wedding date looming, do you feel a sense of sadness or dread? Its okay, we have got you covered.
You have every right to celebrate your original wedding date. Here are some tips below on how you could do this, do what’s right for you guys!
1/ CELEBRATE WITH BREAKFAST IN BED WHILST EXCHANGING CARDS THAT CONTAIN SOME PERSONAL WORDS.
Start the day as you would if it was your wedding day. Breakfast in bed together. We usually live in a society were we live 100 miles per hour, use this morning to relax, eat good food and exchange personal hand written letters (you could even contain a few sneak peeks of your vows!).
2/ LIVING ROOM CEREMONY
Why the hell not! Today is all about you two. If you want to dress up and have your cat/dog as the celebrant whilst you exchange vows, go for it!
3/ INDOOR OR OUTDOOR PICNIC
This one gives you both options depending on weather and if you have your own private outdoor space. Go all out on this one, I’m talking an indoor den with fairy lights, all the snacks and pillows. Or that classic wicker picnic basket filled with good food, relaxing in the sun with glasses filled to the brim!
4/ FACE TIME PORTRAITS WITH A PHOTOGRAPHER
Get dressed up and find a location in your house where you can have some cute couples photo’s taken. This will give you great practice leading up to your actual weddings photo and will add to the memories on the lead up to your day.
5/ FACETIME QUIZ WITH THE BRIDAL & GROOM PARTY
Crack open a bottle of bubbly and get your quiz hats on! For Instance, you could really shake it up and create a quiz about your relationship, see which members of the party really know you best. Prizes, the winner gets the biggest slice of cake on the big day!
6/ NETFLIX AND WELL.. CHILL.
If you simply find the idea of celebrating a bit too much, then its simple. Get in your comfies, switch on Netflix and eat all of the food.
7/ BAKE TOGETHER
Baking is so therapeutic, also you get a reward at the end, you get to eat the yummy treats you cooked together. You could really go all out and make a ginger bread wedding ceremony.. if any of you do this please show me the photos!
8/ START A BUCKET LIST
Create a bucket list of the things you want to achieve together after you tie the knot. Because this will give you both something to look forward to after all the wedding planing is done.
