Virtually Planning Your Wedding from the Comforts of Home
How to plan the perfect wedding during COVID-19
Wedding planning is going the way of the internet nowadays in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, so wedding retailers have taken steps to react and operate on a virtual basis. Wedding planners, wedding venues, wedding tent rentals, wedding dress shops, bakeries, and caterers now offer virtual shopping experiences. Bakeries of course will need to be in-person for tasting, but you can plan and reserve just about every other aspect of your wedding virtually.
Virtual Tours of Wedding Venues
Want to know what it’s like to visit the grounds of some of the most popular wedding locations in the triangle and central North Carolina? Now you can via the virtual tour technology that a lot of wedding venues are using these days.
Wedding Dress Shopping Virtually
First you’ll want to go dress shopping, but how on earth do you do that when everything is still shut down from COVID-19? Many businesses including wedding dress shops are taking to the web to showcase their products via video and photos. Virtual tours of wedding rental venues have become the norm for now. So have virtual tours or examinations of wedding dresses. You can view what styles and colors you like, so when you’re ready to get fitted for a dress, you’ll have just the right dress in mind when the stores eventually open for in-store shopping. Contact your local wedding store by phone or online. If it’s a chain store, like David’s Bridal, you’ll most likely find the virtual shopping technology on their website. Remember, you’ve got plenty of time now for planning, so enjoy the extra time to make your wedding the best it can be!
Planning with your sweetie is essential to making your wedding plans an easier process. Touch base with your partner and brainstorm ideas. Sometimes bouncing ideas off of another person will reveal obstacles you never envisioned. Ask if a specific date is meaningful for them as well as a venue. Most of the time it’s the bride planning, but since you’re going to form a partnership for life, you’ll want to work together on the biggest celebration of your lives. Is there a vendor that you and your partner prefer most? If so, you’ll want to prioritize that vendor on your planning list. In other words, call those vendors first that mean the most. Calendars are filling up for future weddings even though COVID-19 is currently upon us. Check to see if you can downsize or scale to provide more options. Work together on reading through each contract and start calling those preferred vendors now. There’s no time like the present!
Consider an Outdoor Wedding
