There are probably very few of us who do not know someone whose wedding has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. This is a heartbreaking time for all those couples who are seeing their wedding day dreams disappear before their eyes. Now is the time they need you to put some sunshine back in their lives.
Kindness costs nothing and during this time when you cannot give them a simple hug because of social distancing, we have come up with a few ideas to help inspire you to brighten up their day.

Get together with the bridal/grooms party and surprise the bride or groom with a group zoom party, and even better there is no need for a designated driver so everyone can join in the fun.

Make up a gift box of all the treats they love, photos of them together, a gift card for amazon or their favourite restaurant.
