We’re living in pretty uncertain times where more and more of us are being asked to stay at home to slow the spread of a worldwide pandemic and protect our own health as well as others’ health. Now, this can be a pretty surreal and odd experience for many of us. Usually, we’re rushed off our feet. Trying to fit in breakfast, commuting, working, trying to keep up with social commitments, trying to keep up with family, trying to fit some sort of exercise regime into our daily routine… the to-do list goes on and on.
So, now we’re stuck with none to little of this left to do, many of us are finding ourselves with a whole lot of free time on our hands. This can be daunting. But at the same time, if you’re engaged, what better to do than to plan your wedding? This will help to keep you indoors, take your mind off negative things and give you something to really look forward to.
Here are a few steps you can take!
If you haven’t got rings sorted yet – perhaps you haven’t proposed or been proposed to yet – then now’s a great time to browse rings. Take a look at different metals, gems, shapes, cuts and more. There are a number of different factors to take into consideration and you can really mull over them. Get started by browsing stunning sparklers that come in a wide variety of styles.
Wedding venues tend to be the biggest outgoing you’re likely to have when it comes to your wedding. They’re pivotal to the feel of your big day. First, you can browse locations. Do you want to get married close to home or far away? Close to home generally means more people can attend. Far away (particularly overseas) tends to result in a smaller party but can have stunning views and scenery, as well as (often) preferable weather. When you know the location, you can look at what’s on offer, comparing one venue to another. Most will have plenty of pictures on their website, as well as virtual tours.
Consider Photographers and Videographers
Get browsing websites and social media to take a look at a variety of wedding photographers, wedding videographers and their portfolios. You can find someone who shoots in your style and whose previous work really impresses you. There are so many people out there that it can often be difficult to whittle down your options. But while you have more time on your hands, it’s really worth browsing and seeing the different options available to you.
Consider Your Catering
With weddings come lots of hungry mouths to feed. Have you considered what kind of food you’re going to provide your guests with yet? Sit down meals tend to be preferred for small scale weddings. Meanwhile, buffets tend to be the most popular option amongst larger parties. Still, if you have a buffet, you can still have a theme and it’s good to consider what theme you’re interested in before browsing your options.
These are just a few areas of wedding planning you might want to work on while you have the time on your hands!
