Wedding season is upon us and unfortunately many brides have had to postpone their wedding due to COVID-19. This post is for those of you who know a bride who postponed their wedding and for those of you who love your community. Here is a how to guide on supporting your bride-to-be friends by utilizing the small businesses in your community.

Something Personal

First and most importantly, call her and make sure that she feels loved, supported and understood during this challenging time. If you’re looking to do something a little extra, we’ve compiled a few ideas below.

Something Sweet

A yummy pick me up is something that anyone can enjoy. Pick a local bakery that will deliver desserts to her doorstep. Mixed Sugar in Norman and Whimsy Cookie Co. in Tulsa are the places to go for Instagram-worthy iced sugar cookies. They taste just as good as they look. If your bride is a macaron connoisseur, we highly suggest Cafe Disco. This Oklahoma City based bakery specializes in the little French treats and is happy to deliver!

Something Floral

Sending someone flowers is a love language. Find your favorite local florist and have them put together an arrangement for your favorite fiancée. To go the extra mile – find out what her wedding colors are and have the blossoms mimic what her wedding florals will look like!

 Something Healthy

Working out is a great way to eliminate stress, which is something a bride with a postponed wedding has a lot of right now. Pure Barre – Edmond and Pure Barre – Tulsa Midtown are offering at home workouts from their website platforms. This is a great opportunity to Facetime or Skype your friend and do the class together! By the way, overall health helps to boost immune systems and promote positivity.

Something Bubbly

Flowers aren’t her vibe? What about a bouquet made of balloons! Opulent Couture Balloons is known for their jaw dropping creations and this gift will give her a childlike thrill. Facetime her when she gets them and make homemade bubbly drinks together – courtesy of the yummy recipes that Blue Label Bartending is posting on their Instagram.

Something Beauty

Make her excited for what’s to come! Get her a gift card to her favorite salon, like Muse Beauty Bar or Carolyn F. Beauty, that will be good for a blowout or facial once the virus slows down! Remember that gift cards help to support local businesses now and they are good for use later!

Something Artsy

Has she picked a new date? Send her a calligraphy note from Laurel & Marie with the updated wedding date. Both she and her significant other will cherish this forever!

Something She Wants

Log on to her wedding registry and send her a sweet gift – PLENTY Mercantile is a great place to start!

“We knew this would be a perfect opportunity for Embellished Weddings to branch out from the OKC metro to create a new vision of things unseen at Spain Ranch. The vision for this inspiration shoot was to bring in a light blue color along with blush accents. When it came to the specific details, every vendor went above and beyond to express their talent and creativity. Embellished Weddings loves to take on new challenges, even in other cities! We love to encourage brides to envision new places to incorporate design and unique details to bring to life their perfect wedding day.”

Amanda, Keely and Lauren know how overwhelming it can be for a newly engaged bride-to-be. A word of advice from the Embellished team? “Book your planner first! She will sit with you, listen to your ideas and guide you in the right direction with how to bring your wedding vision to life within your budget.” Whether that’s going for completely classic and timeless or staying on-trend with a few details currently popular, Embellished Weddings can help make sure it’s all cohesive.

“Some of our favorite current trends are different ways to incorporate boxwood, floral walls and balloon installations. We are also loving custom firework shows to end the celebration. A tried and true trend we love is using flowers for all of the big statement pieces in the design of a wedding. We also love clients that are open minded to and willing to allow you to take their initial ideas and show them how to bring it to the next level. Working in this industry, you see it all. You know what has been done 100 times, and what is a fresh trend that hasn’t quite taken off yet. Getting that client that is receptive to you showing them to how take their idea to the next level and doing something different is so exciting and a lot of fun!”

“Our favorite detail from Kylie and Blake’s wedding was the personalization and uniqueness of their wedding,” Amanda says. “They had a lot of custom details that were personalized to them: their signature drink was named after their dog, they had her favorite cake for her wedding cake, they had a custom wedding crest that was used on the wedding invitations and then was also designed into vinyl that was placed on the center of the classy white dance floor. Pretty much everything was custom made for their wedding (cake backdrop, jean jackets for the bridesmaids to wear, firework show, floral chandelier, wedding invitations and more). The wedding was exactly how they envisioned with unique touches that were only for her and Blake. It was an amazing wedding and reception!”

The customization process is what it’s all about for the Embellished team. “None of our weddings are the same, because none of our couples are the same. That’s what makes this job so rewarding and enjoyable,” Amanda says.

Stay safe, brides!

#COVID19: Postponing Your Wedding? You'll Want to Read These Tips

Steps to Take When Postponing Your Wedding

1. Decide whether to postpone, adjust or if your date is far enough out, to go ahead with your original plans. As of this post’s publication, events taking place July 2020 and beyond are most likely safe, but Coronavirus statistics and guidelines continue to change, so always pay attention to local rules and guidelines for gatherings (your city, county and state government websites should have the latest information), and of course, stay up to date with the latest info from the CDC. Your guest count and guests’ travel plans should factor in most. If a large number of your guests will require long trips or travel by air to get to your wedding, postponing to a fall/winter 2020 or spring 2021 date is probably best. The later your new date, the less risk you run of having to postpone twice. No, thank you! If you’re open to simply adjusting your original plans, consider eloping or having an intimate, private or family-only ceremony (you’ll still need an ordained minister and license for it to be legal) and postponing only the reception to a later date.

2. Family first. Before you talk to any vendors, clear a few potential new dates or a range of dates with the people closest to you – your spouse-to-be and your immediate families. Unfortunately, it may not be possible to find a new date that works for every single person in your extended family and bridal party, much less your entire guest list, but don’t panic. Your loved ones understand how important this is to you and will do their best to accommodate a new date. Consider streaming your ceremony and/or reception so those who can’t make the new date can “attend” in their own way!

3. Prioritize vendor communication. You’ll need to get in touch with ALL of your vendors as soon as possible, but in these circumstances, the order in which you reach out matters. We recommend speaking first with your planner – as the liaison between you and other vendors, their input is invaluable and they may be able to take care of the bulk of the communications involved in postponing your wedding. If you aren’t using a planner, we suggest reaching out to vendors in this order:

– Venue
– Officiant
– Photographer + Videographer
– Florist, Caterer, Rentals (they have large, expensive, time-sensitive orders to place)
– All other vendors

With so many moving pieces, it may be extremely difficult to find a new date that works for every vendor you’ve booked. Decide which couple of vendors are your absolute must-haves, and make sure your new date works for them first. You may have to go another direction with certain vendors, and that’s okay! Review all contracts to see the protocol for changing dates, canceling if need be, and which payments are non-refundable. Remember, this is a stressful time for vendors too, but kindness in your communication with them can go a long way.

4. Notify guests. Update your wedding website with your new date and any updated travel recommendations for guests. Give your guests plenty of time to adjust their travel plans, change flights, etc., but at the same time, don’t communicate anything to guests out of panic before you’ve nailed down a Plan B (steps 1-3). Let your guests know of the new plans by posting on social media – many vendors have created beautiful templates for Instagram to help with this announcement – or sending a new save the date. If you’re not keen on extra postage costs, email announcements are totally okay in this situation!

5. Make sure your marriage license will still be valid if you’ve already gotten one, or adjust your plans for picking up that important piece of paper. Don’t worry: we’ve got a comprehensive guide to getting your marriage license, too!

6. Adjust your honeymoon travel plans. Definitely be aware of CDC and government guidelines before making any major travel adjustments!

6. Breathe. Think big picture. Remember, no matter what happens, it’s still your day and before you know it, this will be behind us and you’ll be married to your person.
