Postponed Your Wedding Due To COVID-19: Here's How You Deal With The Blues
Wedding postponement is not a very happy scenario obviously but so sudden and unseen. The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in many wedding postponements.
You have postponed your wedding, and you have no idea what to do next to keep yourself entertained? We have got your back.
We’ve created a complete guide on removing the wedding postponement blues, including, how you can help and advise a bride who is facing the difficult decision to postpone her wedding.
Whether you’re a bridesmaid, groomsman, wedding guest or cousin who’s worried they won’t be able to attend if it’s rescheduled.
GAME NIGHTS WITH FAMILY
A week of family time playing together helps reconnect everyone. Games teach important life skills. Think about the last time you have set down and played a game.
Has it been in the last year? Two years? Maybe not even since you were a child? There seems to be a correlation between the rise of technology and the decline of games. Some indoor games that can be played like Scrabble, cards, UNO, Ludo, Jenga, etc.
FACE TIME OR CALL YOUR FRIENDS
In this time of social distancing, a FaceTime or phone call can be so uplifting to anyone’s mood compared to a text message.
Carve out some time to sit, distraction-free, and call your friends who have postponed their wedding. Invest time to listen and be there for them.
If they don’t answer, leave an encouraging voicemail without the expectation that they call you back.
JOG DOWN THE MEMORY LANE
You can sit down with your family and go through the bunch of family photo albums. Bring out all your old photographs from albums that Mum has treasured.
Walk down the memory lane for a while and embrace happiness by some quality time with your family. Maybe make a WhatsApp group once you are done reminiscing and share the most embarrassing and funny childhood pictures with the stories behind it with cousins.
AN ENCOURAGING VOICE MEMO
Your friends are likely getting so many texts and calls about their postponed wedding. Send them a voice memo that has nothing to do with their postponed date.
Just encourage them! Remind them that they are more than a couple planning a wedding day. Tell them what you see in them: creativity, humor, patience, loyalty, sarcasm, kindness, and so many more things!
SKINCARE & HAIRCARE ROUTINE AT HOME
All those YouTube videos of skincare routine
and hair care routine you watch frequently will come to use now. You can most definitely mix different ingredients from your mum's kitchen and apply.
Take your whole family and together put on some hair mask and shower caps and lie down sipping fresh juice or tea. It will give you satisfying results as being at home means no pollution, no sweat,or excessive dust. It is the perfect time for some self-care and pampering.
VIRTUAL DATE NIGHT
If you’re separated from each other during this time, make an effort to call each other often, send letters in the mail to each other, or deliver special gifts to their doorstep.
If possible, throw yourselves a virtual date: learn a new dance together or cook the same recipe at the same time. Because at the end of the day the most important thing is your love.
Wedding postponement is a disappointment, but the big picture is a marriage and building a life together and those things will still happen.
If you’re upset about not seeing your plans come to fruition on your actual wedding date, you’re certainly not alone.
Yet not everyone will understand what you’re grappling with right now, so carefully choose who you want to share your feelings with. So, it’s important to lean on your partner during this time.
Share what you’re thinking with them, but also be there for them. Going through this kind of situation can help couples grow closer and stronger.
