Your wedding day is said to be the best day of your life, and now it is threatened by a global pandemic, you couldn't write it, could you? 

As COVID 19 continues its unprecedented spread, this situation is now what many engaged couples are currently in. Boris Johnson announced stringent measures for no social gatherings of more than two people which affects all weddings. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office advised against all global travel for Brits for the foreseeable future, meaning overseas weddings are also impossible. 

“We have been following the news and government advice and yesterday made the decision to postpone our wedding and push it back," said Halo & Co bride Jane Murrey. "It was, and is a stressful decision”

It has been a sad few weeks here at Halo HQ as we have talked to brides from across the globe that has had their plans moved, changed or cancelled. Yet we have felt so much love from our customers and the bonds we have all formed will be stronger. 

We are working behind the scenes on making sure no one misses out and all new arrangements can be met. Remember that love Conquerors all and when your day arrives it will be filled with fun laugher and celebrations. So it might be on hold for now, but take this time to make the day bigger, better, knowing all your loved ones will be there with you.

Below are a few tips we hope might help you:

  1. Contact all vendors and suppliers, we need your help as much as you need ours! Talk and share your worries and concerns. Everyone in the bridal industry works hard to make your day special and this situation is no different. We will all get through it hand in hand.

  2. Set up a free website where you can have up to date information for everyone in one place. 

  3. Set up a vendor group so you can communicate with everyone in one go

  4. Use the time to research and plan details if you are still at the beginning of the process. Contact suppliers most are still working and will be delighted to get new enquiries you can chat with them, look at their work follow them on social media and by the end really know who you want on your dream team!

  5. If you are nearing your wedding date, use the time to check all details and tweak anything

  6. Most of all remember all the reasons you want to marry this man! and try to find happiness in the waiting. After all, love is eternal.

I am quite possibly the biggest fan of a scrunchies . I wear scrunchies all the time. Why, you ask? Because they’re the best in every possible way. They can take a bad hair day and instantly turn it into a good hair day with very little effort. The scrunchie is often scoffed at for being childish or outdated but not anymore with A listers and glossies getting on board with the trend I bet I can change your mind and convert you to the scrunchie lifestyle by the time you finish reading!


Ok so here are a few of the best bits, Scrunchies don't give you headaches. They also don't rip out your hair like hair elastic can, and they're way less likely to cause breakage. ... Put your hair half up, half down with a scrunchie the ways to wear them are endless.


According to wikipedia The Scrunchie was invented by Philips E. Meyers in 1963[3] but was not patented until 1987 by Ronny Revson, who named the decorative hair accessory the Scunci after her pet toy poodle[4]. The name Scrunchie was a natural evolution, because the fabric scrunched up. After patenting the Scrunchie, Revson spent most of her time in legal disputes, both with manufacturers and her own lawyers[5]. Scrunchies were particularly popular in the 1980s and 1990s, including larger, more elaborate versions. Scrunchies regained popularity in the mid 2010s.[6] Debbie Gibson in particular wore them; Madonna wore a large velvet scrunchie in Desperately Seeking Susan.[7] An episode of Sex and the City mocked the fashion.


So where are we now with this hair accessory? Well they have showed up all over our Instagrams. Today it's all about the oversize scrunchies. Billowy scrunchies have been seen on the wrists and ponytails of fashion girls all around the globe.

Spotlight on





Let me introduce you to one of our bridal stockists Morgan Davies, founded over 27 years ago. Offering two destinations of luxurious award-winning boutiques in Hertfordshire and Islington.





For us, there is nothing better than a bridal store who works closely with us and the bride to ensure they have the best accessories to offer. Obviously we are biased (LOL) but here at Halo & Co, we feel that the right accessories can make or break the bride's outfit.

We know Morgan Davies listen to us and want to ensure their brides have the right selection in-store to choose from. We all work closely together as a team to ensure everyone involved has the product knowledge, how to fit and style advice for each season so that brides can be ensured of the best possible service. Let’s face it, it has to be better getting the whole look from the bridal store where you can try everything on together and have one team organizing all the separate elements together.




An experienced bridal consultant will know their stuff. The Morgan Davies team travel the globe sourcing and picking up new trends and ideas. It's more than just the dress they are seeing from attending fashion shows etc, they know what hairstyles, makeup looks, veils, accessories are in fashion and what works with what. Their dress labels are second to none and included the following prestigious international brands.
