2020 has certainly been the year of getting creative. A big Covid shaped curve ball has meant a wave of changes to weddings that have been a little, ahem, challenging to say the least. Whilst we can’t fix all of your wedding planning woes, the one thing we can ensure is that you build the best wedding gift list to suit whatever kind of celebration your wedding becomes.
Planning your micro wedding
You may be thinking that sorting your gift list isn't the top wedmin priority right now, but what if we told you it may be able to help you organise changes to your wedding and could even reduce costs for the day itself?
How?! we hear you ask. Well say hello to Social Gifting. Social Gifting isn't about a physical gift, it’s about your nearest and dearest promising you their time. Whether you need help finding new suppliers, adapting your decor or printing ‘change the date’ cards you can create bespoke social gifts that allow guests to promise their time to help you out.
Make your small wedding extra special
And don’t forget the day itself. This is particularly useful if you are opting for a sequel wedding featuring a small ceremony this year and a big party next year. Costs can quickly mount up with two events, so why not call on your talented friends and family and make your micro wedding even more special.
From doing your hair and makeup to taking photos and baking a cake, there is so much your loved ones can help out with to make your day full of magical memories. If you need some inspiration you can browse our full list of pre-created social gifts with promises that have been popular with our real couples.
Celebrate staycation style
Now you’ve got the new wedding plan sorted, it’s time to think about holidays because a sequel wedding means a sequel honeymoon right? So you’ve had to downsize your big day, but what better reason is there to have a minimoon to celebrate your ‘mini’ wedding. And If you’ve opted to move your wedding to next year it’s still important to mark your original date with something epic.
Staycations are the perfect solution to get away and enjoy some ‘you’ time, plus your guests will love to gift you something so special. Mr & Mrs Smith have some great options for minibreaks spanning the UK and beyond. What’s more, if your guests have bought you a minimoon and you’ve had to change your wedding date, you can still use your voucher before your new date if you wish.
Upgrade your honeymoon
After this year you two are going to deserve one hell of a honeymoon. Although travelling abroad is a bit of a grey area at the moment, that doesn’t mean you can’t add a few upgrades to your list to make it extra special when you do eventually get to go away.
Perhaps you could do with a quality camera to capture the memories or some swish new luggage to replace those tatty old suitcases you have. Whatever kind of honeymoon you are planning, from beach lounging to city exploring, you can tailor your list with the perfect honeymoon gifts to create the holiday you have been dreaming about.
No matter what planning stage you are at and wherever your new plans are taking you, remember your day is going to be amazing. Sending all the virtual hugs and heaps of love your way.
