4 Ways to Celebrate Your Original Wedding Date During COVID

By | Uncategorized

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has postponed events for many people. If you were planning a 2020 wedding that had to be delayed because of the pandemic, fear not — there are still plenty of ways to celebrate! Gather your family and friends in a fun and safe way to celebrate your original wedding date with these unique ideas.

Dress for the occasion. Wear your wedding attire on your original wedding day. Dressing to the nines can help make the day feel just as special and memorable as it would have initially. Whether you invested in an elegant wedding dress or thrifted classy suits, putting on whatever you were supposed to wear to your wedding will get you into the spirit of the day.

Hire a vendor or two for an at-home gathering. Were you really excited about the band you booked for your wedding? Perhaps you couldn’t wait to devour the food being served at the reception. Many vendors are willing to go above and beyond for their clients during these unprecedented times, so contact yours to see if they’d be ready to help you celebrate the original day in any way they can. Maybe your band will send a virtual recording of your wedding song or your caterer will send you a tray of food. Then, reach out to friends and family who feel comfortable gathering in your home to celebrate.

Set up a Zoom call. If you want to see the friends and family who would have attended your original wedding day, you can still do that! For those who are more comfortable staying home and social distancing, organize a Zoom call on your special day. Encourage your guests to set up drinks and snacks to enjoy while you toast to your nuptials. To keep everyone entertained, carve out some time to play games — wedding-related optional.

Plan a date. If you’re unable to gather family and friends on your original wedding day, you and your significant other can still make plans to celebrate each other. If the weather allows, head to your favorite restaurant for some outdoor dining. Book a weekend getaway or a couple’s spa trip to spend some quality time together. Regardless of what your date entails, as long as you’re doing something you both enjoy together, your original wedding day will still feel special.

Whether you pushed your wedding into 2021 or opted for a smaller, more intimate ceremony at home, there are still plenty of ways you can celebrate your original wedding date.

By | Wedding DJs, Ask The Experts

Are you a 2020 or 2021 bride? If so, listen up! You can still plan and execute the wedding of your dreams, despite the restrictions that may be imposed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. From backyard weddings to small, intimate gatherings indoors and even virtual ceremonies, there are plenty of ways to tie the knot during these unprecedented times.

If you’re one of the brides who have chosen to make it work and are hosting a virtual or micro wedding instead, you’re going to need an amazing playlist! Coronavirus can’t stop you from safely getting married! So you’ll want to add songs to your playlist that remind your friends and family that nothing can stop you from celebrating your love!

How to Pick Songs for Your 2020 Wedding

You may not be hosting a typical cocktail hour or reception at a micro or virtual wedding, but you should still incorporate some classic, slow songs that transport your friends and family back to their own wedding days. Additionally, you want your guests to get up, move around, and dance as they would have at your venue. Aside from classic wedding songs, think about songs that became popular during the quarantine. Did the kids in your family memorize TikTok dances while at home? Give them a chance to show off their skills!

Here are some of the best wedding songs for your virtual wedding.

  1. Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake.
  2. Happy by Pharrell Williams.
  3. Can’t Help Falling In Love by Various Artists.
  4. Twist and Shout by The Beatles.
  5. (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life by Bill Medley.
  6. Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen.
  7. Intentions by Justin Bieber.
  8. You Make My Dreams by Hall and Oates.
  9. Sucker by Jonas Brothers.
  10. 1999 by Prince.

Having your loved ones with you on your wedding day is important, no matter how they attend. Choose songs that are meaningful to you and your significant other, connecting you to your virtual guests through your phones and computers. Overall, remember to curate a group of upbeat songs to keep the mood light, fun, and festive.

Incorporate these songs on your virtual wedding playlist to get your wedding guests excited, even though you may not have everyone together for your special day.
