The world has been turned upside down over the past few months, and there’s no doubt about the fact that prospective newlyweds have found themselves in a sticky situation. However, just because you’ve had to cancel your dream day or postpone it to a later date doesn’t mean that you can’t still celebrate what would have been. You can still have fun with the love of your life, you know.
Organize A Drive-By
It can be hard to deal with the fact that you won’t see your friends and family on what was supposed to be the best day of your life, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t see them at all. One of the best ways to celebrate your postponed wedding day is to organize a drive-by, where all of your loved ones drive-by your house at a specific time to give you a wave and a honk of the horn.
Indulge In Your Wedding Cake
It can be easy to cancel everything when you realize that your big day will no longer be going ahead when you planned, but why not keep something in the mix? Instead of canceling your wedding cake, have it delivered to your home so you can indulge in the different layers and the beautiful decoration, and eat your feelings at the same time.
Plan Your Honeymoon
Just because you have also had to postpone your honeymoon doesn’t mean that you also have to postpone the next planning process. While there are travel restrictions across the globe at the moment, there are also some seriously cheap deals. So, why not plan your honeymoon for next year and feel the excitement burning up once again?
If you’ve had to postpone your wedding due to the ongoing pandemic, then you’re probably pretty upset. That doesn’t mean that you have to mope around, though. Celebrate your wedding day in style, even if you can’t get hitched.
Alternative and Stunning Dress Styles for the Modern Bride
In recent years, modern brides have been slowly veering away from the traditional wedding and the fairytale princess dress. Especially now, during 2020, when weddings and all types of gatherings have had to be scaled back, brides are looking for less ostentatious and more practical solutions. These alternative styles are still stunning and special but can also be used again after the wedding.
Brides today want that pizzazz and a dress that’s fully befitting their personality and individual tastes. This creates a lot of freedom of choice that’s not bound to the traditional silhouettes. As a result, choosing a wedding dress becomes a fun shopping experience rather than a pressure-filled and overwhelming process.
Many designers have seen the same forming need and started creating stunning pieces that combine elegance, glamour, and laid-back fun. This lowers the risk of brides investing in an expensive dress that might not be quite them simply to honor tradition. Of course, the luxurious tulle and taffeta gowns are a thing of the past, but there are simply more fun and fresh designs available that could easily fit in a town hall or beach venue with the same ease.
The Option to Personalize the Dress
A number of contemporary designers are embracing the romance over tradition movement that young brides want. Lines have been released that showcase couture pieces that are more art-focused and break the mold. Continuing to use luxurious satin, chiffon, tulle, and lace, designers are shaking off the “princess vibe” by crafting a-line kaftans, two-piece bridal suits, short and fun dresses for the bride that loves to dance, and much more.
In most cases, a designer is willing to work directly with the bride to help personalize the piece further by adding eye-catching details, changing the color of the fabric, and other customization options. As a result, modern brides can acquire alternative pieces that feel more like an extension of themselves rather than conforming to what they think they should be wearing for such an occasion.
