We wanted to express our heartfelt sympathy for all the worry & stress that COVD-19 must be having on your Wedding plans.
We want you all to know that we are here for you.
Although no one knows what’s going to happen or the full extent of the impact this pandemic will have on our lives, whatever unfolds in the next coming weeks, we promise to keep you up to date on the developments of the virus as best we can.

We also want you to know, it’s business as usual (albeit a little different for the team working remotely from home!) We are on the other end of the phone for a catch up, we are still beavering away with emails & we’ll be posting lots of lovely social media posts to keep spirits up and inspo flowing! We have lots of video planning meetings in the diary and look forward to catching up with you and running over your plans for the day, although you’ll have the backdrop of our homes instead of the picturesque Iscoyd (sorry!)
For all those couples who have sadly had to postpone, your Wedding might not be happening on the day you’d planned, but it will happen & it will be just as incredible as you’d imagined.
In the meantime, we thought we’d pop together some ideas of what you could do with your extra time to alleviate the boredom and tick off some of those ‘wedding to do’s!’
Practice your baking
Why not spend some time perfecting some edible favours! Who doesn’t love biscuits, fudge or truffles!
Keep an eye out for some recipes from the kitchen team in the coming weeks, we are trying to get Dave’s famous chocolate biscuit recipe from him to share with you all (wish us luck!)
Perfect your first dance
There are so many virtual online dance classes out there at the moment.
We can’t wait to see those famous ‘dirty dancing’ lifts!
Arts and Crafts: Get Creative!
Why not think about making your own name cards or menus? Maybe you’ve taken to a needle & thread during these quiet times, we’ve seen the cutest little crochetted heart & personalised favours on Pinterest!
Get your self-care game on
To cope with these stressful times, we know it helps to have some pampering. Give yourself permission to unwind and enjoy some of life’s simple pleasures.
Trying some new makeup or skin care routines.
DIY Face masks – fun to make with children too!
Experiment with a new hair colour with an at-home dye kit (If you are feeling brave!)
Taking a relaxing spa-style bath in your own home, complete with candles (scent to sleep, by Neom, of course!)
Pop open the fizz and treat yourself to some fancy chocolates with your fiánce
Cook a Romantic Dinner
Choose a cuisine and go all out setting the scene. Write a menu, practice your napkin folds and enjoy (Not forgetting the vino, of course!)
Plan another stag or hen do
If you have that extra time, why the heck not?
Get stuck into your pre-wedding workout regime
It is well known that exercise is great for your mental wellbeing! There are so many live-streaming workouts you can join and whilst we have the sun, get out in the garden and start feeling your best and energised, ready to get back into planning.
Plan your honeymoon
Because we all know having a holiday to look forward too does wonders for mental health. If you’ve already got your main honeymoon sorted, why not plan a little staycation – you guys deserve it!
Try out those cocktails
Feeling stuck on what ‘His & Her’ cocktail to choose, why not attempt to make a few at home… we’d recommend doing this daily!
Most importantly, stay home & stay healthy
Experiences often make us happier than things. Keep spending quality time together and keep building happy memories at home. We’ll be ready to celebrate your perfect day when it comes around!
Lots of Iscoyd Love! xxx
