Covid-19 has significantly impacted all of our lives, especially for engaged couples planning their weddings this year. If you are in the midst of planning your wedding but have come to a halt to wait and see what happens with the pandemic, you are not alone. However, no matter what stage of wedding planning you’re in, there are different wedding tasks you can do while staying at home to be safe and productive.
Here are four wedding tasks to do while in quarantine:
Create Your Wedding Website
A wedding website isn’t just a digital platform to share your story and photos of your relationship, it’s an essential and convenient hub to spread the word to your guests about your wedding details and share updates with them even if they are TBD. You can use templates or a customized design to create your wedding website through several wedding outlets including The Knot, WeddingWire and Zola.
Create Your Wedding Registry
Registering for gifts is one of the most fun parts of wedding planning. Since you’re likely spending more time at home now more than ever before, it is a perfect time to take inventory to see what you and your partner have, what you need and what you want. Keep in mind you don’t have to just register for traditional household items. Consider unique wedding registry ideas like activities, spa treatments, classes and art.
Do Your Menu/Cake Tastings
It may sound impossible, but several caterers and bakeries will pack up your menu options and deliver them to your home if they are following the adaptations many restaurants are doing with covid-19. It may not the same as having a tasting in person, but it’s a great alternative and an important planning task you can check off the long wedding planning to-do list.
Take Virtual Dance Lessons
If you’re in quarantine with your partner, now is a great time to practice your wedding dance. There are several online options that offer live lessons with dance instructors, so why not take out your dancing shoes and practice your dance moves? It’s not only a wedding task you can cross off your list, but a fun and unique date night you can do while staying at home.
The effects of the coronavirus pandemic may continue on for an indefinite period of time, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop planning your wedding until the restrictions lift. Times are difficult right now, so bring small joys into your life and your wedding by doing what you can from home!
