How to Mark the Date of a Cancelled Wedding

If you’ve been forced by the present circumstances to cancel your wedding, then the day of your planned wedding might feel a little bit sombre. This will be especially so if you spend it pottering aimlessly around the house, pretending that nothing particularly out of the ordinary has happened.

We say that your wedding day is worth marking, even if you don’t actually end up getting married. Let’s take a look at how you might do this.

Dress Up

For many of us, lockdown has meant spending most of the day in our pyjamas and dressing gowns. While there’s a lot to be said for high-quality loungewear, it does sometimes feel good to dress up – and if you’ve got an occasion to mark, then so much more so. Have a sit-down meal and treat it as a date night. You’ll be amazed at how the effort can help to distinguish this day from all of the others on your calendar.

Have a Party

There’s no way that you’ll recreate quite the same party atmosphere as a real wedding in your home. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t make the day a bit of a social occasion with the help of some videoconferencing software. Zoom is the platform of choice for those looking to stay in touch during lockdown – and some couples have even chosen to get married online via the platform.

Call your Friends

Even if you don’t intent to make everyone log on at a certain time of day, it can be good to talk to friends, especially if you’re feeling the emotional effects of what is a deeply weird situation. If the atmosphere in your house is a bit on the grim side, then hang in there – you’ll be amazed how much speaking to friends and family can help to lift things up again!

Plan Your Wedding!

Just because your wedding has been kicked into the long grass by a global pandemic doesn’t mean that it’s never going to happen. When the current measures have been lifted, and your wedding can be safely (and legally) held, you can make it bigger and better than ever! That means spending time planning what you’re going to do differently, and exactly what your wedding is going to look like when it finally rolls around. In a year’s time, you can be sure that all of your guests will be much more enthusiastic about the idea of getting together for a major celebration – so why not take advantage of the time, and plan the best way to give them one?
