It’s no surprise that the past few months have completely transformed the way we live our lives. In fact, for many people, it has thrown a wrench in vacations, jobs, and even weddings. Whether it is your own wedding or someone you know, wedding celebrations likely look much different than anticipated. Some chose to postpone their wedding, while some have small backyard ceremonies. Many may have had to cancel bachelor or bachelorette parties, or other big celebrations with all their friends. Just because COVID-19 flipped the plans upside down, doesn’t mean we still can’t celebrate! Check out some ways you can celebrate corona wedding couples.
Zoom Happy Hour
While you can’t all be together to celebrate, get the wedding party together virtually with a Zoom Happy Hour! Set up different Zoom happy hours with the bridal party and the groomsmen so everyone can virtually celebrate. Get everyone to have their own drinks on hand, and perhaps you can play some virtual games! Software like Jackbox Games allows players to connect with their phones.
Send a Fancy Dinner
If you want to help your friends celebrate their wedding but may be too far away, send them a fancy dinner! Perhaps they have a favorite restaurant in town, or you could order something online and have it shipped to them. You and your friends can go in on it together to split the cost. Although it’s a small gesture, a delicious meal can always brighten someone’s day. Not sure where to order from? Spoonful of Comfort serves delicious homemade soup packages, and Snake River Farms delivers delicious steaks, right to your doorstep.
Virtual Wine or Beer Tasting
Perhaps you, the happy couple, and your friends were all going to celebrate at a winery or a brewery. If that plan fell through, why not bring the winery home to you? Make a list of wines or beers and send it out to everyone attending the virtual tasting. Give everyone a few days notice so they can get the right kinds at the store or from a local winery or brewery. Then, schedule your tasting! Everyone will have the same beverages, so make an order you want to drink them in. Although you won’t be physically together, you can still enjoy some cold beverages and each other’s company virtually!
Socially Distanced Picnic
If you are lucky enough to be in the same area as the happy couple, perhaps you can plan a socially distanced picnic! Head to your local park or outdoor area, and pack up some picnic food and a bottle of champagne to toast them! While it won’t be the celebration they were planning on, it would be nice to get together at a distance to celebrate.
Send them a Honeymoon Kit
Perhaps your friends were able to tie the knot at a small private ceremony, but their honeymoon got canceled. Try putting together a honeymoon kit with all things relaxation and fun. Although this won’t compare to a tropical getaway, it shows that you are thinking about them! For instance, include personalized tumblers so they can sip on their own iced cocktails. You could even include a cocktail recipe book for them to try! Additionally, you could include items for a spa day like facemasks, lotions, and candles. Although they may not be able to go on their trip, they’ll love this thoughtful gift.
Compile Video Messages
With some basic video editing skills, you and your friends can create a thoughtful gift for the corona wedding couple. Have your friends record short videos of themselves congratulating the bride and groom. They can tell a funny story about the couple or simply share their well-wishes. Then, compile all of the individual recordings into one video and send it to the bride and groom on their would-be wedding day. It’s sure to bring some laughs and maybe even a few tears!
While it is unfortunate that weddings have been postponed or downsized, it’s important to make the most of every situation. After all, no one is more upset than the bride and groom! Corona wedding couples deserve a fun celebration with friends, so show them that you’re thinking of them by celebrating them at a distance. They will appreciate the love and support from their friends at a time like this!
