PLANNING YOUR WEDDING DURING LOCKDOWN.
Planning your wedding is no easy task at the best of times, but planning your big day during lockdown throws up a whole new set of problems. You can't try on your dress, you cant visit your venue, you can't meet with your suppliers.....it must be a nightmare. However there are things you can do. Here are a few tips for planning your big day during lockdown.
Use Social Media.
Instagram and Pinterest are amazing places for inspiration with everything from dresses to cutlery, cakes to transport and entertainment. Try searching for local suppliers and local venues as well as local hashtags.
Remember to create boards on Pinterest and bookmark images on Instagram to help you find your favourite images to share with your family and friends.
Facebook is a great resource for finding local suppliers, reading reviews and recommendations and for seeing photos of their recent work.
Its also a great way of keeping in touch with bridesmaids and family and friends, keeping in touch with your suppliers or your wedding party.
Follow your local suppliers to keep up to date with their special offers and discounts.
With so many weddings being postponed from 2020 to 2021 or 2022, many suppliers have already been booked to cover all the postponed dates from 2020, so if you have any suppliers that you really want to have for your big day then you should get them booked as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Whilst you may not be able to meet them in person, you could give them a call or arrange a video meeting.
Check out Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration. You could save yourself some money b if you get creative and make your own centrepieces, invitations, favours, place cards....the list goes on and on.
Take care of yourself.
There's no getting away from the fact that planning your wedding is both a stressful and difficult time, but remember to take time for yourself and enjoy your planning.
Stay positive and look forward to what is going to be the best day of your life regardless of what changes you may have to make along the way.
