You may have heard us mention virtual weddings in previous articles such as How To Scale Back Your Wedding but what does it even mean? What is a virtual wedding? Let us fill you in.
You were happily planning along, you’d nailed your guest list, thought about all the food, been to check out a couple of bands, and then boom. Global pandemic. None of us knows when things will be back to ‘normal’ and so whether your wedding is planned for next month or next year, it’s important to prepare a plan B. With current wedding restrictions and those we can foresee, that plan B may look like scaling back your wedding.
A reduction in wedding guests doesn’t mean there should be any less of a celebration. You can still wear your wedding outfits, still cut your wedding cake and most importantly still have an amazing time. Plus, you’ll be married, which ultimately is what it’s all about.

It used to be simple. You get engaged, you plan your wedding and somewhere along the line you decide to make it easier for yourself and your guests by setting up a wedding gift list. Regardless of whether you’d like gifts, cash, honeymoon, charity contributions (or a little bit of all of the above), having a dedicated gift list service has always been a good idea. So what happens now that your wedding plans may have become more complex or in some cases, more simplified? What exactly are the expectations surrounding wedding gifts? We’ve taken all of the most asked questions on this topic to give you everything you need to know about the new wedding gift etiquette.
A slight departure from the norm here on Rock My Wedding today. We’ve continued to share both wedding related COVID resources and general wedding inspiration throughout the last 4 months. However, we’ve also been keeping our ear to the ground in terms of industry knowledge and Governmental change surrounding weddings at this time. Finding clarity has been tough. From our chats with you as planning couples, we know how difficult the uncertainty has been. This, coupled with the need to provide guidance and stability to small businesses across the wedding industry evolved into the formation of the Association of British Wedding Businesses.
I mean, it’s not a title anyone wants to write is it? But since we know that having a socially distanced wedding is a reality that our couples may face in the coming months… We want to help prepare you.
So, is it possible to have a wedding with restrictions still in place? Is it possible for your guests to adhere to the distancing rules? It is. Be prepared to approach it with an open mind and be willing to make some changes. But rest assured that although your vision for your day may change, that it will still be full of love, magic and cake. Or cheese, if that’s more your thing.
Do not let lockdown hinder your celebrations. I repeat, do NOT let lockdown hinder your celebrations. Who is up for being virtually reunited with their best girls, playing some hilarious games and dancing until they fall asleep on their sofa? I see your hands up. Here we go…
Recently we’ve been sharing COVID related resources with you and the response we’ve received has been incredible. Overwhelmingly, couples are choosing to remain positive and tackle the situation head-on with innovation and grace. Some of you have had to go to Plan B as it’s become clear that lockdown will impact your day. Many of you are still in the unknown when it comes to wedding planning and whether or not your date will go ahead as planned, go ahead with smaller numbers or require a postponement.
