With all the stress of wedding planning and the current Covid crisis, it can sometimes feel like all the joy has been taken out of wedding planning. To bring back a bit of excitement into wedding planning, we have put together a few tips for you:
Get the Gang Together (virtually)
Organise a weekly catch up with your friends/bridesmaids over Skype or Zoom to talk about wedding planning and bounce ideas around. Throw in a glass of Prosecco/wine in the mix and you have yourself a party!
There are so many ways to get great inspiration for your wedding. Create Pinterest boards for wedding themes, dresses, cakes. Our Pinterest page is a great place to start pinning! And if you are feeling particularly creative, why not create a vision board with magazine cut-outs & anything else that inspires you.
With extra time at home at the moment, it’s the perfect time to get a head start on those DIY projects. From DIY favours to table decorations, the sky is the limit. And why not enrol the help of your significant other for a fun couple’s activity!
Look After Yourself
Take time on a weekly basis to take time for yourself and relax (read our article on 5 ways to reduce stress during wedding planning). This will make the experience more enjoyable when you do dive back into the planning. Take a bath, read a good book or do some meditation.
If you already have a caterer, now’s the perfect time to liaise with them to discuss menu ideas: from the menu on the Big Day to breakfast ideas for the next day. Just because you cannot go to tastings doesn’t mean you cannot get a head start.
If you have not yet organised it, take time aside with your significant other on a weekly basis to discuss honeymoon plans and destinations. Do some research online, contact travel agents and draw-up a budget.
If you have already organised your honeymoon plans or if you have had to delay due to Covid, why not put a weekend aside with your significant other. Have a little honeymoon at home for example: from romantic dinners, to online cocktail making classes or breakfast in bed.
