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. Cake balls from Cakes by Gina are to-die-for and Shelby Elizabeth Cakes has scrumptious desserts of all kinds. Go to these two Houston based bakeries 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

Working out is a great way to eliminate stress, which is something a bride with a postponed wedding has a lot of right now. Bells & Barbells Wedding Fitness is offering at home personal training from its website platforms. This is a great opportunity to Facetime or Skype your friend and do the workout together! By the way, overall health helps to boost immune systems and promote positivity.

Something Sparkly

Flowers aren’t her vibe? What about a piece of jewelry from a local jeweler! Kaira is known for their jaw dropping creations and a gem from here will last her a lifetime. Need advice on the perfect piece? We think that the Mini Puffy Heart necklace and the Pearl Stretch Bracelet are the right pick-me-up and under $200 staples!

Something Beauty

Make her excited for what’s to come! Get her a gift card to her favorite salon or beauty pro, like Hey Lovely or Adorne Artistry, 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 Half Moon Lettering or Dreams and Nostalgia 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 – Bering’s or Alspaugh’s Boutique are great places to start!
