Celebrating Your Original Wedding Date in lockdown
Updated: Apr 28
So this post is inspired by the fact that one of my loveliest friends is supposed to be having her wedding this weekend. But as many of you have had to do, they have had to postpone their wedding day. However I can't help but think we should celebrate their original date together anyway.
So it got me thinking of how we could do that and what you lovely people out there could do to celebrate your original dates and not let it just pass by unannounced and uncelebrated!
1. Zoom Party
No I haven't got confused between Zoom and House Party. But calling it a zoom call seems wrong, when let's be honest it should be a party!
Why not get all of your friends on a call, your bridal party, family and hey why not all your wedding guests. Play a playlist, have a few drinks and just have a bit of fun! It only seems right as it's what you would have been doing!
2. Couples Quiz Night
Again this is likely to be on Zoom.... but have your bridal party or family put together a Mr and Mrs quiz. Get everyone on board and have a pub quiz type evening, but all about your and your fiancé! Have fun with your friends and celebrate you both as a couple!
3. Date Night
Get dressed up and cook something pretty special for dinner. Perhaps choose one of your wedding playlists and even do your first dance together. Make it all about the 2 of you and the love you share for each other.
4. Vlog It
This won't be for everyone, but why not document your day. You can later on down the line look at the video and smile and then look at your wedding video later down the road and smile and the journey you've been on!
5. Celebrate Love
If you don't want to share it with others, then why not create a bed fort as such in your living room, get all the snacks, all the romantic movies you can get your hands on and just spend the day together. Watch all the greatest love stories and be just the pair of you. Drink bubbles and just share the love.
So what will you do? Any other ideas? Add them to the comments, I would LOVE to know what you are deciding to do to celebrate your date.
