Planning a wedding can be exciting and stressful, especially if for one reason or another you re unable to get out and about.
Here are some tips to help you prepare for your special day, even if you aren’t able to meet up in person with people or visit places:
Make A List
Being at home gives you plenty of time to create a list and bounce ideas off each other, so make the most of this
Pick Your Colour Scheme
Browse through magazines and search on the internet for ideas and themes you like the look of. Get inspired from the comfort of your own home.
Video Call Wedding Party
The beauty of the internet means that you can still communicate with your wedding party and swap ideas. Planning doesn’t have to stop. You may even want to have a glass of your favourite drink with you while you chat.
Take a look at flowers you like online and list the ones you prefer, having some idea of what you would like is a great start.
Not sure when the exact date for your wedding is? No problem, this gives you plenty of time to work out and get fit, so you can meet the demands of your special day with ease.
Having time off means you have plenty of time to tend to the things you have always been meaning to do; such as your hair, for instance, condition and pamper yourself and try out new styles along the way. By doing this, you have a good chance of finding the wedding hairstyle you like and your hair will look and feel amazing too.
Experiment with make-up and have fun trying out new shades, this way you have an idea of how you want your make-up on your big day.
While you may not be able to go shopping for your wedding dress; you can browse through magazines and search online for the style of dress you are after. There are also many bridal boutiques who offer online delivery too.
Take some time out for self-care. Relaxation is so important for your health and wellbeing and it will help you stay calm too.
Although you may not be able to do practical things, like visiting venues etc. just yet, there are things that you can still do. Focus on what you can do for now and try to enjoy the process as much as you can.
Remember, social distancing is in place for a reason and it’s not that you will never marry—it’s a ‘yes you can, when it’s safe to do so’.
So make the most of this time at home and enjoy the moment
