It can be hard to remain positive with so much uncertainty around weddings in the midst of coronavirus. If you have postponed your wedding to the winter or beyond, Beth from Miss Carlyse and Co has some tips for remaining positive no matter what!
If you have had to postpone your wedding due to the coronavirus, then we completely understand your frustration. I appreciate that this is a hard time, but we are here to help with some great tips to help you keep positive throughout!
Focus on the future
Even though you may have had to postpone your wedding, keep reminding yourself that it will go ahead in the future. Hold on to the positives, whilst it wasn’t meant to be your day now, your date will come around soon. Use this extra time to plan anything that you may not have had time for before. It’s important to keep your loved ones safe, and although it may feel unfair, a postponed wedding will happen at some point.
Video call your friends and family
Speaking with your loved ones will often make you feel a lot better. Check in with them, have a chat and let them know how you feel. Your close friends and family will likely be just as disappointed for you, so talking it out will make you feel a lot better. Ask them to help you find the fun in having extra time to anticipate your wedding day.
Don’t be scared to reach out to your suppliers, even if they don’t have the answers you may feel better just checking in with them. They live for weddings and will be feeling disappointed with everything as well as you. They will be very excited to have a chat about your wedding, and how beauitful your day will be!
Include your partner in your decision making, they will want to help make decisions around date or supplier changes. It may be that your partner is not as vocal as you, but rest assured they will be feeling the same. Make decisions as a united front, and remind yourselves why you want to get married in the first place.
Celebrate your wedding date
Why not schedule in a video call / social distancing drinks or even a wedding themed virtual quiz night on your wedding date. It will be great to have fun with your closet friends and family, and will help you associate good memories with the date! Turn it into a day for celebration rather than a downer.
