Now we are all spending all the time at home due to the COVID-19 crisis. I bet you and your love are enjoying lots of quality time together, gaming, Netflix and other stuff, you can still keep getting ready for your wedding. But what can you do from home? Here are some points.
Most of you probably have felt like organizing a wedding is a part-time job at some point, and we feel you. With the extra time at home, it might be the perfect time to take a step back and get everything organized! Create a spreadsheet of all your vendors and their contact information, determine what your goals are, make a checklist—whatever will help keep you on-track, now is the time to put those systems in place.
DIY Something For Your Day
Even if you don’t feel like the most “crafty” person, there’s always something you can DIY to add a little personal touch to your wedding decor! From signage to photo backdrops to tie-dye napkins, we know you and your person can get creative with do-it-yourself projects. There are even some online class sites for free during the COVID-19 quarantine.
Try A Make-Up Or Hair Tutorial
While you might not be planning on doing your hair and make-up on the big day, learning these skill can never hurt! Plus, it can be a ton of fun. There are many wedding hair and make-up artists offering virtual lessons, as well as Instagram stories and YouTube videos! Even if you don’t execute on the big day, it could be your rehearsal dinner or engagement photo look!
Online Shop For Attire and Decor
We love a good online shopping spree. And if you’re planning a wedding, you have lots to shop for! Don’t put it up, start right now!
Work On Your Vows Or Ceremony Readings
If you’re feeling up for a more emotional activity, working on your vows or ceremony readings might be the perfect way to spend a few hours of your time. This is usually one of tasks couples wait until the last minute to plan, so you’ll be ahead of the game and can feel confident knowing you put a lot of thought into these important aspects of your wedding!
Write Letters To Your Guests
If you already have all your “essential” wedding planning done, now’s the time to add some extra elements! We love when couples write letters to their guests to include in welcome bags or on their dinner place settings.
Practice Your First Dance
You and your partner may already be practicing all the latest Tik Tok dances—and if you’re not, we highly recommend it. Now is also the perfect time to practice your first dance together! Turn on that song and dance in your kitchen. Not only will it help you prepare for the big day, but it’s a super sweet little activity to do together.
Make A Reception Playlist
If you’re already dancing in the kitchen, why not just make it a full on party! Start a playlist on Apple Music or Spotify with your favorite songs to dance to. Your DJ will likely also ask you for a list of songs you don’t want to play at the wedding, so it’s helpful to add those to a list, as well!
