If you’re like most of the world, social distancing means you’re spending more and more time indoors. But while most people are getting bored, brides-to-be are getting busy! Now that you have plenty of time on your hands, it’s a great opportunity to get important items checked off your wedding to-do list. Here are wedding planning tasks you can complete from the convenience of your home:
Organize Your Ideas
One of the hardest parts about being at the office is not having all day to daydream about your wedding. But if you are working from home, you can plan to your heart’s content without having to worry about your boss busting you. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of online platforms like Pinterest or prefer doing things the old fashioned way - this is your time to dream up every detail and create a perfectly organized outline for your big day.
Write Your Vows
Spending lots of time quarantined alongside your significant other means you’re probably closer with them than ever before. Use this time to sit down together and reflect upon your relationship - Laugh about your first kiss, reminisce about your favorite date, and remember the romance of every big milestone. After doing so, you’ll have plenty of inspiration when it comes to writing your vows.
Even though their brick-and-mortar stores are probably closed, almost every company’s website is still up and running. Plus, lots of places are offering special sales because they know more people than ever are going online to get their shopping done. You can still order decorations, accessories, attire, and more while stuck in social isolation.
Get Your DIY On
If you’re like most brides, DIY projects are a very important part of your big day. Now’s the time to start creating those crafts! With all this time on your hands, you’ll be able to get these intricate, time consuming tasks out of the way so that they’re ready to go for your wedding. For a set of extra hands, get your partner on board too!
Start Your Wedding Registry
Being stuck at home - and cooking more meals than ever - means that you probably have a great grasp on exactly which of your household items could use an upgrade. Believe it or not, wedding registries can take a lot of time to create. Use this down time to create a registry of items online so that you’ll have a perfectly curated list ready to send to guests when the time is right.
Create a Playlist
If you and your partner miss going out on the weekends, here’s a fun activity that can get you on your feet. It doesn’t matter if you’re using a DJ or plan on creating your own playlists for the reception, you’ll want to come up with a list of songs that are going to get people dancing. Go through your music collection or look online for inspiration. Pumping some party jams (and maybe having a drink or two while you do so) is a fun way to spend a Friday night at home with your significant other.
