If you’ve been following the journey of our Save the Date couple Bex and Ryan, you will know that they were due to get married 17th April but, sadly, had to postpone their big day due to the lock down. As so many of our readers will be facing the same fate, we wanted to catch up with them to see how they spent their original wedding date and their top tips for keeping your spirits high. We will hand over to Bex to let us know how she is doing…

“We were supposed to get married at the dreamy Walled Gardens, Beeston Fields on 17th April 2020. We would have been engaged for just under 3 years, and yes, we spent most of that time planning and finding our perfect vendors. We’ve had to postpone to 23rd of October 2020, and fingers crossed this will still go ahead. Whilst every single supplier involved in our wedding has been absolutely incredible, and all able to accommodate, it doesn’t really take the sting away.

I read in a lot of bridal magazines that wedding planning is a marathon not a sprint. And that’s exactly what it felt like when we were so close to the finish line and it got moved another 10 miles. It’s been TOUGH to stay excited. Especially when we’re actually not sure when this, whatever this is, will end.

I’ve put together three pieces of advice that have helped us pull ourselves back together.

Be sad

We’re 2 weeks passed our original wedding date, and whilst generally, we think we’re over it, there do come moments where we both feel a bit crap. We’ve spent the best part of 2 years planning, paying and counting down to a date that came and went.

Whether you’ve had to postpone, you’re not sure if your wedding will go ahead over the coming months, or you’re concerned about how the virus is going to affect it late this year, I recommend having a good mope. Don’t talk to anyone for a day, rinse Netflix/Amazon Prime/Disney+, eat chocolate and don’t get out of your PJs. It really helps.

Make a plan

Planning helps with stress. It’s science (kind of/not really/I think so anyway). Once you’re in the process of planning, or you’ve made a plan, it helps your mind move on. Whether it’s making the decision to postpone, getting your ducks in a row if your venue has decided to postpone, or just coming up with Plan B and C if you think the virus could have an impact your wedding. We’re even now discussing what we should do if our new date goes ahead, but with limited numbers.

Have a party anyway

We spent most of the day drinking, as is customary at most weddings, and we hopped on zoom with our friends and family. We had so much fun. It was probably one of the best days we’d had in lockdown so can absolutely recommend getting dressed up, drinking bubbles and making sure you still mark that date. I even put together a little video so we’ll have it to look back on when we do eventually tie the knot.”
