We’re now entering junior year of the pandemic and it sucks. I thought I had lucked out and I would not experience being a corona bride but ultimately we had to postpone the wedding two months before our date due to low vaccination rates in Guatemala and ever-changing regulations on social events.
Postponing is not fun; it’s stressful on you, your vendors and your guests – however, I’m a big believer that everything happens for a reason and my new wedding date will be even more amazing.
As our original wedding date started to get closer I started to get a bit sad; this date had meant a lot to me and my fiancé for over a year and it was now going to be just a regular day. I love any excuse to make plans or plan a celebration so I decided to plan a fun weekend of date nights in Houston so Nov 6, 2021 could still be a special day.
If you have had to postpone or end up postponing due to all these variants that are still coming out, here are my ideas on how to celebrate your original wedding date.
Treat Yourself To A New Outfit
You might not be able to wear your wedding dress just yet, but why not shop for a fabulous white outfit? David’s Bridal gifted me a few items for the weekend and they were so perfect. See below for outfit details
- Jumpsuit: Off-the-Shoulder Floral Puff Sleeve Jumpsuit by DB Studio
- Shoes: Satin and Crystal Block Heels with Zip Back by Jewel Badgley Mischka
- Earrings: Pearl and Crystal Statement Teardrop Earrings by David’s Bridal
Get Pampered At A Salon or Spa
A blowout always makes me feel like a million bucks. Spend the morning pampering yourself with your favorite salon or spa treatment! I visited Dry Bar because they are seriously the best in the blow out biz.
Even though you won’t be cutting into your wedding cake on this day, you should still have some cake! I ordered a dozen of mini Italian cream cupcakes from Crave Cupcakes in Houston’s Uptown Park, I even got them with wedding themed decorations and they were the perfect treat to eat with our champagne.
You must always have bubbly on hand. We popped the bottle of Veuve our title company gave us when we bought or home.
Snap A Couple of Photos
If you’re going to get all dolled up, you have to document it right?!
Plan A Special Date Night
We had two special date nights that weekend! On Friday night we visited Le Colonial in River Oaks for their social hour and then had dinner at the downstairs dining room. On Saturday, we started the evening by drinking bubbles, eating our cupcakes and then headed to Ouzo Bay for dinner.
Practice Your First Dance
This is fun to do before AND after you have a few drinks.
Like I said, postponing sucks but then again, you get to be a bride for a bit longer and being a bride to be is the most fun I’ve had in my almost 30 years. Maybe you can even start planning a second bachelorette 🤪🤪🤪
