1. Your Wedding Will be Perfect, No Matter When it Takes Place
2. Have a ‘Lockdown list’ to Tackle the Jobs You’ve Been Putting Off
This sound advice comes from Andrea Swift, expert wedding planner at Fabulous Together and the big ones she sees couples dally over are choosing the ceremony music, choosing a theme for and deciding on table names and reaching an agreement on your first dance. Now’s the time folks...it’s not like your other half can avoid things by sneaking off the pub or the gym now is it!
3. Get Inspired, Get Productive
The trick, says Kate is to take immediate action when you see something you like. Don’t just pin it or jump onto the next thing, look to see who the suppliers are, follow the links and note them down. Once you’ve found them, drop them a message, follow them online or send an enquiry. Whilst you might not be ready to book at that stage, at least you’ll have an easy way of contacting them when you are and can get the ball rolling with any questions you might have.
4. If you Love It, Book It.
This will minimise your chances of missing out. Do check in advance however if they’re offering postponements without any extra charges, whilst you obviously hope you’ll not have to postpone, it’s better to know just in case.
5. Get Organised, stay prepared
Try to include contact info for suppliers, to-dos, where you’re up to with tasks or decisions, payment details and deadlines. You’ll undoubtedly need these in the run up to your wedding but you’ll also have a ready-made list of people to contact should you need to postpone. Trust us, future you will thank you for it….
So there you go. Top wedding planning tips for lockdown include:
And last but not least, stay safe, stay sane and stay on top of your planning!
