three methods to assist your future bride in social distancing

I woke up last Tuesday morning with an email saying:

I hope you and your family are safe and in the middle of everything that is going on. I'm not sure you will be able to work in the middle of it all, but if so, I thought I would request a contribution. I could really use a few thoughts to help my sister and her fiance, whose wedding should be April 18th.

After explaining her situation a little further, she continued:

While there isn't much to do about when a pandemic hits the world and everyone has to keep their distance, I was wondering if you had any tips that might apply.

Since I received this email, I've been going back and forth as I can write a post that adequately responds to current developments in the wedding world. The reality is that these are unprecedented times and all my years of experience could not have prepared me for something like this. That being said, I wouldn't be a modern MOH if I hadn't To attempt.

The first thing I did was email my tribe and ask for advice. The amount of creative ideas I received was overwhelming. From there, I was able to do further research and narrow it down to three practical ways to support any future bride in these uncertain times.

1. Send a personal care package or a Date Night Kit

To help your bride cope with the stress she is experiencing, bring her to the spa by sending a home-made care package. Here are some ideas on what to include:

Despite the circumstances, give your bride and groom a reason to celebrate by sending them a Date Night Kit with these fun ideas:

  • A bottle of wine or champagne
  • Gift card for a local delivery restaurant
  • Popcorn / snacks
  • Sweets / chocolates
  • Board / card games

If you're looking for an easier way to send a thoughtful gift, check out the Givingli app. This platform allows you to send electronic gift cards from various well-known retailers, including a hand-drawn designer card that you can customize with a personalized message.

2. Organize a Virtual Girls Night

Keep your bride's spirits high by hosting a virtual meeting with your bridesmaid colleagues. This could serve as an alternative to the bridal shower, bachelor party or simply as a much needed girls night. There are several ways to do this. Below are some platforms / apps to help you with this:

Additional ideas for your virtual girls night:

  • Pick a fun topic and let everyone dress accordingly
  • Plan a virtual happy hour with a unique cocktail
  • Play Bundle – a unique personalized board game!

3. Create a virtual guest book

Remind your bride and groom how many people think of them by involving their loved ones. One of the best ways to do this is to create a “virtual guest book” with personal messages from family and friends. Here are some options:

  • Use the COMMEMO platform to collaborate on a custom photo book
  • Record and send video messages through the Marco Polo app
  • Start a Facebook group and invite all wedding guests to register

Be sure to remind contributors to keep their messages positive and not compassionate! The whole goal is to raise the mood of the bride and groom and not to remind them of everything they have lost.
