After months (or years) of planning, it would be a devastating realisation that you have to postpone your upcoming wedding. Not only to abide by the social gathering laws but simply to keep their loved ones safe many couples in 2020 have already been forced to press pause on their upcoming nuptials.
In the recent weeks we’ve seen an outpouring of support for these couples and a new ‘love wins’ movement coined by our very own Bindi Irwin. The option to elope instead of postponing is gaining in popularity as many couples simply don’t want to wait. It may not be the wedding of their dreams, or what they had originally planned, but at least they have each other.
While of course, you would have loved to be there for yourself, but you understand the most important is that the bride and groom are happy.
For those looking to send a congratulatory gift to the newlyweds but are unsure how, or where to buy one - we’ve listed our favourite wedding gift ideas you can give from the comfort, and safety, of your own home.
Honeymoon Experience Gifts!
While they may have decided not to postpone their wedding, I’m sure they’ve still got plans to book a honeymoon once the Corona Virus threat has passed. What better way to say congratulations than with a contribution to their upcoming trip.
A Gifting Owl experience gift voucher can be used to book a romantic tour or activity on their honeymoon. Gifting Owl gifts are valid worldwide for three years. This means that you don’t need to worry about when and where they decide to take their trip! Simply choose the amount you’d like to spend, add a special message to the happy couple and send it digitally via email, sms, WhatsApp or Facebook.
Rather select an experience that suits the happy couple? Search and sort by their honeymoon destination and custom pick an experience you know they’d love! Experience gift vouchers are still fully flexible if they’d like to upgrade, change dates or even choose a different experience.
