Here’s some easy peasy wedding planning to do’s that you can accomplish during a SELF QUARANTINE! We’re all getting ready for 14 days of wedding planning, Netflix, and more aren’t we?! So here are some wedding planning tips for your 14 days of social distancing 😉
WEDDING PLANNING TIPS: TIMELINE
Now is the time to get your timeline under control. Shoot an email out to your MIV (Most Important Vendors)! THESE INCLUDE YOUR: Makeup artist, venue, photo/video, officiant and DJ. Ask how long they need for their job, and explain what parts of the day are already planned (ie. the church only has 2PM open for your ceremony, so the ceremony is happening at 2PM).
Check with Google as to what time sunset is in your area and check-in with the photographer about golden hour. These are some of the best times for wedding party portraits. You can literally just Google “sunset [[location]] [[date]]” and it’ll spit out the time of sunset on that date, past or future!
WEDDING PLANNING TIPS: SEATING ARRANGEMENTS
This is one of those things that typically gets left for LITERALLY the last minute! Figure out your seating arrangements now while you got some free time and pass the project off to a calligrapher or other wedding professional who will help you get that seating chard and placecards lookin’ PURTY.
USE YOUR TIME: DECOR + ANY DIY TOUCHES
Scroll through Pinterest and get all the decor ideas finalized. You can easily get some DIY touches completed during this time too. Know that according to most resources, shipped products aren’t carrying the virus so Amazon your way all the decor + DIY stuff that you need!!!!
GET AHEAD: THANK YOU CARDS
Get your thank you cards totally prepped so that you don’t have to worry about them after your wedding. Write out a message and add the guest’s name, prep the envelope with name, address, and stamp, and you’ll be set– It’ll make life so much easier, all you’ll have to do post wedding is add the GIFT they got you, seal it up and send ’em out!
