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!
