For any couple, changing a wedding date is never simple. This year, many brides and grooms have found themselves dealing with this disappointment, but that doesn’t make the decision any easier. In fact, it’s perfectly normal to feel upset as your original wedding date gets closer and you think about all of the hard work and planning that went into a day that you have now been forced to reschedule.

Believe it or not, you can still celebrate your original wedding date and make it incredibly special. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of some ideas that will turn the day into something that you can still look forward to.

“No matter what you decide, make it memorable—a precursor to the exciting day that is ahead of you,” says Laurie Hardman of Laurie D’Anne Events.

Cut Into Some Cake

See if your baker can make a mini wedding cake so that you can have a sweet treat on the date.

Get Pampered

Create a home spa day with masks, manicures, and pedicures to indulge in some much-needed relaxation and rejuvenation, says Naomi Bennett of Bowties & Bouquets. Some professionals might come to your home and treat you to their services in the backyard, or you can take turns pampering one another.

Order in a Special Meal

Whether it’s the dinner you planned on having at your reception or food from your favorite restaurant, light some candles and use the china you got as a wedding gift for a romantic feast.

Host a Zoom Party

Celebrate with family and friends via Zoom! Dress up, pop some bubbly, play some music and have fun with those closest to you virtually, says Hardman.

Recite your Vows

You don’t need an altar to read these special words to one another. Want to save them for the actual wedding? Exchange love letters instead.

Open Up Some Gifts

There is no rule that you have to be officially married before you can open up your presents.

Plan a Parade

Drive-by car parades have been all the rage during the pandemic. Invite your family and closest friends to decorate their cars and drive past your home to show their love and support.

Bring in Blooms

“We sent one of our local couples a mockup of the bridal bouquet and the groom’s boutonniere for their special dinner with their immediate family,” says Hardman.

Take a Walk Down Memory Lane

This is a great time to go through old photos and put together a scrapbook. Or you can make a video montage of some of your best moments as a couple.

Make Honeymoon Arrangements

What’s more exciting than planning a romantic trip? Take this extra time to look into fun excursions, romantic restaurants, and fun activities that you can look forward to.

Dress up!

Don’t wait until your wedding day to get all decked out, so put on a special dress and suit. You might also want to ask your photographer if they’d be willing to come over and take a few photos outside to commemorate this special date.
