If eloping isn't your thing and you are postponing the big day to have your larger-scaled vision, we still recommend celebrating your original wedding date! We understand these times are hard, plans can change drastically, but we recommend staying positive so you can always look back on positive memories. Just because the date changed does not mean that there isn't a reason to celebrate - a date is just a number and your love is going to be the same on that date AND the future date. We have come up with a new suggestions on how to celebrate the "what should have been" day!
‣ Treat Yourself
Sometimes a little retail therapy IS the answer. Lift your spirits by treating yourself to something special off your registry that you were really looking forward to; or even better splurge on some upgraded jewelry to wear on the big day and start wearing the jewelry that you already purchased!
‣ Romantic Road trip
Go ahead and book that yurt in Marfa or Wimberley, or that bed and breakfast in Fredericksburg. Spend the weekend wine tasting and zip lining. A quick weekend getaway is the perfect escape to unwind and relax, while redirecting your energy about the changes. It's a great way to keep it intimate and focus on experiencing things with just the two of you.
‣ Private Dinner
Check with your venue to see if they are currently offering hourly rental rates. You can also bring in a fancy dinner from your favorite restaurant, or check to see if there is a chef on-site that can cook something up for just the two of you. If there is not a chef, check if your venue has a restaurant on-site or nearby that they recommend. You can always make a reservation where your rehearsal dinner would have been and don't be afraid to ask if you can have a more intimate setting with your reservation. Take this time to reflect on what made you choose this location and area for your special day and take time to cheers to exciting beginnings!
