The big day is coming up but sadly no one will be able to attend. This is the reality for a lot of local brides right now. Our team at Brides of Austin understands how upsetting it is to have to postpone a wedding and we want to do something to help. Here’s a how to guide on supporting a bride who had to postpone her wedding due to COVID-19. Pro tip: utilize as many local businesses as you can.

Something Personal

First and most importantly, call her and make sure that she feels loved, supported and understood during this challenging time. If you’re looking to do something a little extra, we’ve compiled a few ideas below.

Something Sweet

A yummy pick me up is something that anyone can enjoy. Pick a local bakery that will deliver desserts to her doorstep. We highly recommend The Cupcake Bar in Austin for yummy cuppies or their latest doughnut kits and 2Tarts Bakery in New Braunfels for coffee and treats. Check out Bonjour Brigadeiro Handcrafted Chocolate & Treats for Instagram-worthy take-home sweets.

Something Floral

Sending someone flowers is a love language. Find your favorite local florist and have them put together an arrangement for your favorite fiancée. To go the extra mile – find out what her wedding colors are and have the blossoms mimic what her wedding florals will look like!

 Something Healthy

Focusing on health is a great way to eliminate stress, which is something a bride with a postponed wedding has a lot of right now. Some say that the best way to relax is by getting a massage and a gift certificate to Live Love Relax. If body treatments are more her style, Laurel Corrinne Studio in Austin offers everything from sunless tanning to dermaplaning. This is a great opportunity to purchase two certificates and go with your girlfriend when the quarantine is over! By the way, overall health helps to boost immune systems and promote positivity.

Something Colorful

Flowers aren’t her vibe? What about a piece of art from a local artist! Watercoloratx is known for their jaw dropping creations and a painting from here will last her a lifetime. Need advice on the perfect watercolor piece? Perhaps a painting of her wedding venue is a step in the right direction.

Something Beauty

Make her excited for what’s to come! Get her a gift card to her favorite salon, like Gloss Beauty Boutique or flAir Style Lounge, that will be good for a blowout or facial once the virus slows down! Remember that gift cards help to support local businesses now and they are good for use later!

Something Artsy

Has she picked a new date? Send her a calligraphy note from Owl & Envelope or Ivelisse Designs with the updated wedding date. Both she and her significant other will cherish this forever!

Something She Wants

Log on to her wedding registry and send her a sweet gift!

The fashion editorial of our wildest dreams came to life in this season’s highly anticipated shoot, Wild Fable. Hosted on the scenic, limitless grounds at Lucky Arrow Retreat, every modern-folksy detail came to life. Remi + Gold’s floral design completely stole the show in a never before seen color palette. Electric shades of violet and lavender, touchable texture and over-the-top installs came together in brilliant works of art, including a floral “teepee” and a heart-shaped grid installation. The bride’s hair and makeup were expertly done by flAir Style Lounge who created sleek, modern hairstyles and bold-lipped makeup looks, complementing the incredibly enviable gown collection from our favorite local bridal boutiques. Topped with handmade jewelry from On a Limb Creative, and ever-unique engagement rings via Form to Feeling, the model bride was ready for her wildly “Austin” wedding day.
