#1. Wear Your Best
You don’t have to wear your wedding dress, or you could that’s totally up to you. But on your wedding, the ‘not your actual wedding date’ bring out the chicest and ultra-glam looks! They say to feel your best, you need to look your best which will stay true if you wear your best. Your mood and vibe of the day will change the minute you dress up and look fancy.

This is a day that will definitely be remembered for a lifetime. And now that you’ve decided to dress up and make the most of it, why not throw a party! A virtual party is as fun as a normal party, and you get to do it being safe. A virtual wedding party is a new age partying so if you’re thinking about how this party has to be one for the books, don’t worry because it definitely will be. And to make it all the more incredible, add a DJ into the mix 😉 He will have the best of the jams and music that will make you and your guests jump on their feet and sway, no matter where they are.
#3. Sing Your Heart Out
It’s your wedding party, even if it’s not the original one and you get to do what you want! So, don’t shy away from karaoke and sing your heart out!

#4. Your First Dance
The first dance is always important and super special. If you and your partner manage to be together on the ‘wedding party’ day, then dancing to the tune of your first dance will mark the night perfectly. You won’t have the pressure of it being top-notch or won’t have eyes peeled at you because you could decide to share the moment with your guests over a video call or choose not to. But what you get is to have a sweet romantic moment with each other because even though your wedding has been postponed you have each other, and that moment is yours; forever.
#5. Did Someone Say Cake?
Every celebratory function should have a cake, even a ‘not your real wedding party’. It doesn’t have to be fancy, and doesn’t have to be a cake could be a variation of it (brownies, cupcakes, etc.). Cutting a cake with your partner would make the day just as special as you wished for it. Bonus point, you’ll have a scrumptious dessert waiting for you too.
#6. Yay To A Home Buffet
A wedding always has great food, and even if you don’t have a great meal planned for your ‘not real wedding party’, you can always order a variety of food, and even get some delivered to your guests of honor. This will definitely change your mood and make others happy too!
#7. Cute-Funny-Picture Perfect
