How to Plan Your Future Wedding from Home
The pandemic has forced us to hit pause on many aspects of our lives, but not getting engaged. With so much uncertainty around, couples are looking for something they can have some trust in, and right now that’s each other.
Although it’s anyone’s guess when we’ll be able to have “normal weddings” once again, proposals are still going strong as people take advantage of all the time they’re spending at home to plan for their future wedding. If you’ve recently got engaged and you’re looking for ways to be proactive and prepare for your big day, here are 11 things you can arrange for your wedding from the comfort of your own sofa.
Lockdown has increased almost everyone’s screen time. So why not make the most of the time you spend scrolling on your phone by setting up a Pinterest board for your wedding? Pinterest is an amazing place to get inspired and soak up incredible ideas for every single part of your wedding. Follow us on Pinterest for loads of amazing ideas.
Set your budget
It’s no one’s favourite part of getting married, but it’s something you’ve got to do. Almost everyone has had to cut back a little over the past months, putting you in a great position to be sensible about your wedding spending.
Choose your wedding rings
Selecting wedding rings online is something couples have been doing for years, well before the pandemic hit. High quality images, beautiful videos and handy sizing guides make choosing a wedding ring on your phone or computer easy. You don’t even have to worry about getting the size perfect. Return your ring to us within 90 days of receipt and we’ll resize it for free.
Make your guest list
Being isolated from friends and family has made many of us realise who the people we cherish the most are, giving you a great headstart on putting together your guest list. If you’re aiming for a small and intimate wedding, you can limit your guest list to the people you’ve missed being with the most.
Have a virtual engagement party?
We do work meetings, game nights and happy hours via video apps, so why not host an engagement party online? You can send out invites, just like you would for an in-person party, encourage everyone to dress up and have a great time from home!
Get fit and healthy
Everyone wants to look their best at their wedding, but it’s almost certain the lockdowns have affected any workout routine you were trying to keep up with last year. Consider 2021 the perfect opportunity to take a fresh approach to your fitness programme and start again. When your wedding day rolls around, you’ll be happy you did!
Create a wedding playlist?
Without any live music, the tunes we’ve been listening to have mostly been coming from online streaming services. Take a look at the songs you’ve played the most and use them to create a playlist for your wedding. If you need a push in the right direction, check out our Ultimate Love playlist.
When everything seems unpredictable and unreliable, it’s comforting to know you’ve got someone to ride out the rough times with. While you can’t try on different wedding dresses or smell the flowers that will make up your bouquet just yet, there are plenty of things you can do from home to prepare. Get started today and you’ll be hearing wedding bells before you know it.
