writing wedding vows

Planning the wedding of your dreams in the middle of a pandemic can be stressful especially since we’ve been banished to our homes. Believe it or not, you can cover a lot of the “groundwork” for your big day right from the comfort of your living room. Have a few things to check off your list? Here are a few tasks you can take care of without having to get off the couch;

1.Finalize the guest lists

Group gatherings have been limited to help reduce the spread of the virus. It’s important to keep this in mind when you’re working on your guest list. You may have to scale down your guest list. Track RSVPs so you can have an accurate headcount. If you’ve just begun the wedding planning process then you will have to be selective with who you invite. You and your significant others will have to review who’s in and who’s out.

In-person meetings with your vendors may not be feasible especially in these times. Schedule virtual consultations with vendors like the florist, caterer, and the bakery to make important decisions and keep track of their progress. Technology like Zoom, Skype, and Facetime allow you to video chat with your vendors at any time. You can arrange for the florists to send photo layouts and designs through email or even on a video call. Consider arranging curbside pickups or delivery of food samples with the caterer and baker.

Here comes the fun part. Now is the perfect time to begin working on your wedding registry. Registering for wedding guests can feel like a big shopping spree but it’s important to create a registry that celebrates who you are as a couple. You should start by pinpointing things you and your significant other may need in the home you’ll be creating together. This could be a blender, a luxe blanket, or even a beautiful new comforter set.

4.Shop For Your Wedding Day Attire

Still, trying to find the perfect wedding dress or tux? Or perhaps you’ve yet to find the right pair of wedding shoes? You can continue the hunt for accessories and even wedding favors right online.

5.Work on your vows

It’s easy to get so lost in planning your wedding that you don’t get the chance to focus on writing your vows until the day before your big day. You can take the free time you have in quarantine to write heartfelt vows that express your love.

6.Make the perfect wedding playlist

Your wedding reception music playlist is the most important playlist that you’ll ever make. Create a playlist on Spotify on Apple Music of all your favorite love jams and party songs that you would love to hear.
