Use Quarantine to Plan the Wedding of Your Dreams
Wedding Planning from the Comforts of Home
You’ve found yourself back at square one thanks to the coronavirus. COVID-19 has wrecked many weddings this season, but you don’t have to let it drag you down even further. Take this time to start over and plan the ultimate dream wedding. It may need to be in the late summer or fall, but so be it. It will be bigger and better than ever with careful planning. You’re most likely quarantined like everyone else, so use this time to get ahead of your new plans. Careful planning done far in advance will save you hundreds and maybe thousands on your wedding. So many brides and grooms rush into planning because they’re excited and want to get married sooner rather than later. You probably know what happens when you rush into a sale. You spend more! Now, you’ve got plenty of time to do your research.
Get Wedding Insurance
Many people are unaware that you can even purchase wedding insurance, but it’s well worth taking a look. This could save you thousands of your hard-earned cash on the biggest day of your lives. When you rent a wedding venue, they often will require or offer wedding insurance. There are a variety of insurance policies to choose from, so do your homework and ask your wedding planner for assistance on choosing the best policy for your wedding.
Create Your Wedding Registry
This is one of the fun tasks of planning your wedding. Tackle your wedding registry and website from the comforts of your sofa. These sites will serve as important resources for your family and guests. On your wedding website, you’ll be able to address questions that guests may have about the event. It’s a great information center for your wedding. Also, you can post updates about the wedding if needed.
Make a Guest Database
This step will make invitations much easier. Spend this down-time to enter all of your guests’ names and addresses into a spreadsheet. Make sure the spreadsheet file will transfer to the invitation site from which you choose to send your invitations.
Plan for Catering
Getting menu ideas can take quite a bit of planning. Some guests may have food allergies, so it will be good to plan alternative menu items for those guests. Contact the top caterers on your vendors list or contact the wedding venue’s onsite chef for ideas for building your wedding day menu.
As you can see, there’s so much planning to be done and we only scratched the surface in this article. However, these are items you can tackle from the comfort of your home. So make the best of the downtime from the coronavirus shutdown and plan that dream wedding!
