Having to postponed their due to the coronavirus outbreak has come as a big disappointment to several couples across the world. Even though some managed to organise intimate shaadi ceremonies just before the situation became terrible, others had to cancel all plans. If you fall in the second category, don’t lose heart. We’re all in this together and soon you’ll get your dream shaadi when the world is a better and a happier place.
Postponing your wedding means waiting even longer to marry the love of your life and it also means that you have to say goodbye to a date that you’d been looking forward to for months. However, even if you are tying the knot later than you anticipated, it is important to celebrate the original wedding day and not let it go by in a flash.
Even though your wedding is postponed due to the unfortunate coronavirus outbreak, you must find a special way (or ways) to mark the occasion and celebrate what would have been and what eventually, will be. Here are six ways to honour your original wedding date while in quarantine.
You might have decided to wait to take the pheras until the lockdown ends, but if you’re feeling like you really want to keep your initial wedding date, organise a virtual shaadi. Preet Singh and Neet Kaur couldn’t wait to get married and had a virtual shaadi via a video call.
Dress up for the occasion and ask your families and friends to log in from wherever they are and get married in the presence of everyone you love, just virtually.
Video call your fiancé and bake a mini wedding cake together. Work together to design and decorate the cake over the course of the day and enjoy it with your families later. If you’re a couple who enjoys a little competition, you can also consider challenging each other to make one.
Deck up your house with all the DIY decorations, gather up your friends and families on a video conference call, put on some music and party the night away.
You must be going crazy over your wedding preparations and thinking about how much you have to do once the lockdown ends. But TBH, there are so many things that you can start with while being in quarantine. Yes, you read that right! From bookmarking lehenga designs to picking up mehendi favours, pick up one thing from your wedding to-do list and get started on it on your original wedding day to mark the occasion.
If baking a cake together doesn’t interest you, why not organise a date night with your fiancé!? Decide the time, dress your best and have a cute time together. You can also pick up a movie that you both like and watch it together.
Since your wedding was put on hold, your honeymoon, subsequently, got delayed too. But don’t worry! Make the most of your original wedding day to search for different restaurants/cafes and landmarks that your destination has to offer. Planning shouldn’t stop just because the wedding is postponed.
So brides-to-be, don't lose heart and celebrate the day!
