These days I am receiving many messages from future brides who have had to postpone their wedding due to the coronavirus . A few months ago, nobody imagined that this pandemic situation would come about. But it has happened and we are here to help you with your plan changes due to Covid-19 .
Coronavirus: postponing the wedding does not mean canceling
The first step is a call to calm . You may have been planning your perfect wedding for months or even more than a year, so it's normal to feel frustrated or sad. Let those emotions express themselves, communicate your concerns to your family and friends, to your partner, but don't let them sink you.
There is a phrase that I love and I have hanging on the wall “Feelings are much like waves, we can't stop them from coming but we can choose which one to surf”. If you like surfing like me, you will feel super identified. And it is so. Feel your emotions and give them space, but then adjust your thoughts back to reality . Yes, you have had to postpone your wedding due to Covid-19, but better times will come. And you will have that wonderful wedding that you had always imagined!
The help of the wedding planner
If you have a wedding planner, she will take care of all the consequences that Covid-19 is having. Surely he will have already contacted you to discuss issues such as the location, the catering service and everything that you have already ordered. You are in good hands, let yourself be advised. And, if you want us to recommend a super wedding planner, we love Bendito Sarao .
I don't have a wedding planner at my wedding, where do I start?
First contact the farm or church where the wedding was to take place. Then you will have to do the same with the caterer, the photographer, the DJ... The whole sector is very aware and they want the best for you, so they will give you the maximum possible facilities. You will see how they understand you and help you organize yourself again.
At the moment, professionals are working to postpone May weddings, although the situation may take longer. He is considering working more and opening unforeseen days, such as Fridays and Sundays, so that you can have your wedding this year . Prepare a quadrant to see how you could adjust all the changes, for example in an Excel. Or add a tab to that Excel you already have to control your wedding items.
Changes in your wedding dress
Due to the coronavirus, many brides and grooms are choosing to postpone their weddings from April and May to September and October . The question you will ask yourself is what about my wedding dress? If your dress is Mimètik, you can easily adapt it to autumn. In fact, versatility is one of our maxims and now is where it is best demonstrated. But whether your dress is a Mimètik or not, it's just a matter of adding certain changes:
Complete your wedding dress with a denim or leather jacket
This casual mix is loved by many of my Mimètik Brides and I can't stop recommending it to our brides-to-be. Autumn is not particularly cool in Spain, but it will do you good to have that second layer. Not to mention how cool you'll feel in that casual piece over your bohemian dress ! Look how good it looks on Mercè. I liked it so much that you shared your photos with us in such exceptional moments, that I immediately uploaded it to Stories.
Your boho dress with a knitted shawl
I saw this combination recently in one of my girlfriends, Anna, and it seemed super successful! It's perfect, the shawl goes perfectly with the beatnik crop top and, furthermore, it doesn't get cold at all. If you like the handmade look, the shawl could be made for you by your mother or grandmother. More handmade impossible!
Add a Frida bolero
Our Frida model is the one for fall and winter brides par excellence. To the dress you already have, you can add a Frida lace bolero in Ivory or Champagne , for more temperate climates, or a Frida Essential bolero if it's going to be colder. And for my most daring brides: nothing like a touch of color !
Choose a Frida Essential and add all the accessories that best define you
If there is something that characterizes us, it is our speed in making and sending wedding dresses. So you may be reading this and you haven't actually picked out your dress yet. No problem! For Last Minute brides, we have the “Bride in a Hurry” category: you choose a model in standard size and in two-three weeks you already have it at home. Fantastic, right? For that fall wedding, you can directly choose one of our wonderful Frida models .

Bridesmaids: feel more accompanied than ever at your wedding
Have you considered having bridesmaids at your wedding? Perhaps at first you had ruled it out but now, with the turn that the world has taken due to the coronavirus, you need more than ever that the most important women for you, be by your side. Why not make them this precious proposal? Trust me, it's going to be super exciting. And they are going to feel like the luckiest women in the world. You have had to postpone your wedding due to the coronavirus, they know what that means and they want to be by your side.
Let me explain to you that the magic of Mimètik is our Infinity dresses: the same dress, a thousand ways to wear it . Imagine all your friends, by your side, dressed the same, but with the possibility of showing each of them that personality that makes them unique and exceptional. For example, they could wear this beautiful burgundy, but each one could give it a personal touch in the way it is tied.

The honeymoon and the coronavirus
Again, couples are generally choosing to procrastinate rather than cancel. Perhaps this is the greatest uncertainty, since right now many countries have closed borders and we do not know how long this situation will last. I am sure that both the travel agency and all the providers of your honeymoon will be super attentive to you and to find the most favorable solution.

Postponing your wedding due to the Coronavirus: the most important thing is attitude
I would like that, if you had to take only one idea from this article, it would be this: everything will be fine. Focus on being well, calm, on changing what you can change, which is your attitude. Better times will come, I'm sure. And you will have that wedding you have always dreamed of, surrounded by your loved ones and you will be super happy . As Sinatra says: the best is yet to come!
A big hug,
