These COVID-19 times are going pretty hard for everyone. Our hearts go out to couples who are having to re-think their original wedding plans. What to do if your wedding was planned for this time? Here are some ultra-awesome wedding alternatives to help you start thinking positively and celebrate your love in an amazing way!
Get Married In Your Backyard
Why not elope to your backyard? All you need and everyone you need are here – you two and maybe your pets. Being at home means having all the pets with you—even the ones who you might not have been able to celebrate with at your venue! We’re suckers for a sweet backyard wedding and pup-of-honor, why not try this fun idea? Celebrate your love – just your little family and when it’s all over, you’ll be able to host a great party for everyone.
Create Your Own Sweetheart Table
If you’re celebrating your big day at home, we encourage you to take advantage of the time and create and extra-special sweetheart table scape that will have your forgetting you’re even in your own house! Order-in a fancy meal, get some flowers (many florist are even offering discounted bouquets right now) and don’t forget the cake!
Go Virtual With A Facebook Live, FaceTime Or Zoom Wedding
Such virtual weddings already take place right now, you may take a look at them, steal some ideas and organize your own virtual wedding with all the guests you wanted to see at your real one. Later, when it’s all over, you will be able to re-celebrate your wedding again, with a new theme, style and more guests.
Ask Your Family And Friends To Send You Love Letters
Handwritten letters will never go out of style. If your loved ones are far away, consider asking your special people to send you letters to read on the morning of your original wedding date. Not only will these make you cry, laugh, and everything in between, but they will be an extra sentimental keepsake to hold on to forever.
Start Planning Your Postponed Wedding
If you’ve decided to postpone a reception until a later date, you might want to opt for something a little less “traditional.” We love a good dinner party, and it’s a brilliant way to host a more intimate gathering with your closest loved ones at a later date. Plus, if you had already booked a catering team they will likely let you roll over your deposits for the dinner party!
