Take Communication with Your Guests Online
One of the ways that technology was beneficial during this pandemic was that people could keep in touch with family and friends online while socially distancing at home. Guests are an essential part of your wedding. After making the list of who you want to share your day with, you have to find a way to carry them along.
Communicating with every single one of your expected guests personally might be too tasking, so we advise that you create your wedding website as soon as possible. It could be like the central hub for information where your wedding is concerned, and you could keep everyone updated on the progress where your wedding is concerned. Make sure that your wedding website contains your registry, online RSVP, your story, pictures, blurbs with information, and an FAQ section with answers.
Contact Your Main Vendors Too
When it comes to your wedding, the main vendors are your wedding planner, wedding venue, photographer, and caterer. You can do your research for the ones that would fit your wedding by searching online and asking for referrals from family and friends. It could even be cheaper for you. For example, having your wedding drapery rentals shipped to you by a DIY company will cost less than working with local vendors.
A wedding planner is especially important in this season because they’d help you navigate the stormy waters of your wedding planning. You can’t hold your wedding without a venue to hold it at, and your photographer will help capture and preserve the special moments at your wedding.
You also need to talk to your caterer because food is one of the reasons why people attend a wedding. You have to get it right with your wedding food. After contacting these vendors, you can communicate with them using apps like Zoom, Skype, Facetime, and more.
Talk to Your Other Vendors Online
You can talk to your other vendors and wedding officials online, too. Discussions can happen about your contracts online; copies can be exchanged for signing, and you can check on the services ordered too. These meetings will help you make the right decisions about your wedding. Just remember to read through any contracts that you are signing thoroughly.
Search for Meaningful Favors, Décor and Other Gifts Online
Favors are one of the ways that guests can remember your wedding by. The best kind of favors to send your guests home with are those that are meaningful and special. You can use this time to search for them online and even order them ahead of time for your wedding. You can also rent uplights with a great do it yourself company that will ship them to you at unbelievable prices. Online can be easier and less costly.
Take Care of Yourself
Your physical health is not the only thing at stake during this pandemic. You should pay attention to your mental and emotional wellbeing too. Remember to exercise, eat right and meditate alongside the steps you take to protect yourself from the pandemic. Avoid stress as much as you can and stay positive too. Above all, remember that you are not alone in these times.
So, which of these steps will you be getting started with first? Whatever you do, keep in mind that what matters most is the love between you and your partner. Best of luck!!!
