Postponed Your Wedding? 6 Ways to Celebrate Your Original Wedding Date
Many couples have found themselves postponing their wedding plans and tying the knot later than they originally planned. While postponing your wedding still means celebrating your love at a later date, it’s hard to let go of the date you and your guests have been looking forward to for so long. Find a way to celebrate your original date to commemorate what would have been and what will be. Here are some creative ways to celebrate and honor your partner on your proposed wedding day.

1. Write a Love Letter
Some couples decide to exchange written vows on their big day, or exchange love letters before the First Look. Bring about some of these emotional feelings on your original wedding day by exchanging handwritten love letters. These letters don’t have to be your wedding vows – but can be great practice for when you are exchanging the real thing!

2. Eat Your Wedding Cake
Are your craving the wedding cake of your dreams, the multi-tiered lemon wedding cake with raspberry jam filling and white icing you plan to enjoy on your wedding day? Order a cake to be delivered in the same flavor of your wedding cake to satisfy those cravings and share a special moment with your loved one.

3. Have a Photoshoot
If your photographer is comfortable, have a socially-distanced outdoor mini-photoshoot to commemorate the original wedding date. Get a little dressed up and capture this moment in time – you can even use these images as decor for the postponed wedding day that your guests can admire. Make sure to speak to your photographer about what your options are for the shoot and follow recommended guidelines for safe practices.

4. Plan Your Honeymoon
Just because your wedding day plans have come to a halt does not mean your travel dreams have to! While travel is on pause at the moment, you can still celebrate your original wedding day with wanderlust. Continue to plan your dream honeymoon and chart out destinations, landmarks and restaurants you plan to visit. If anything, you now have more time to perfect the vacation of a lifetime!

5. Have a Virtual Toast
Mix up your signature cocktail you plan to serve on your wedding day and share the recipe with your wedding party or closest guests so they can create it at home. Plan a virtual happy hour to celebrate your original wedding date with a toast. Everyone will further appreciate being together at the future celebration to come.

6. Reflect On Your Relationship
Mark your planned wedding date by reminiscing on your time together as a couple. Go for a drive and visit the place you first met, order in takeout from the restaurant you had your first date, or visit the place where your partner popped the question. Take this time to savor your relationship and find strength in your unity and love.
