Amidst the current COVID-19 scenario, many couples have had to make tough, often heart-breaking decisions to postpone their wedding. However, this is a day worth celebrating, no?
Are you contemplating your wedding yet? Keeping the chaotic Coronavirus situation in mind, you may have to. However, that in no way suggests that you can’t recognise your original wedding date and make it memorable. You could both opt for a virtual wedding ceremony and tie the knot with an intimate gathering in attendance (you could always do a bigger ceremony later), or just spend quality time with one another, virtually or in-person.
Just remind yourself what truly matters and know that when the time is right, things will fall into place. In the meantime, here are 5 ways to commemorate this very special day.
WRITE A LETTER TO ONE ANOTHER
While I’m unsure whether it would be a great idea to share your wedding vows, you could always exchange love letters? Pen down your emotions and deepest of feelings for one another, you could then read it out to your partner virtually or even mail it to them so that they can read it aloud!
EAT A CAKE (OR YOUR WEDDING CAKE)
Why not give into some sweet cravings on this special occasion? For those of you who can get hold of their wedding cake well in time, great, if not, you could always bake together in-person or virtually! Take it as if you are preparing your wedding cake and enjoy the delectable delight.
A VIRTUAL PRE-WEDDINGPHOTO SHOOT
Since you probably missed out on those gorgeous pre-wedding photos in your dreamy drapes and crisp suit, why not make the best of quarantine? Ideal would be if you got together and took some cute photographs yourself. However, if getting together isn’t an option, you could always make use of those funky filters online!
PLAN YOUR HONEYMOON
Trust me you wouldn’t get a better time to do so. Use all the extra time you have on your hands to plan your future honeymoon! Surf the net, check the prices, engage in some online dreaming and you’re good to go! If you like, you could make a wish-list of all that you’d do together, the places you’d visit and even get your outfits in place.
What could be better than feeling nostalgic together? It’s a great way to use this time to re-live those beautiful memories that you both have spent together. Go over old photos, vacations, events, or even scroll through a relative’s memorable wedding that you attended together! A glass of wine in hand, and you’re all set to reminisce!
