Wedding Planning Tips During a Pandemic
Wedding planning is a bit different right now and with the current coronavirus pandemic, it might be difficult to look forward. But, instead of worrying and letting fear and anxiety take over, take this opportunity to focus on these five wedding planning tips.
Work on your vows: This is a great time to work on your vows. You and your fiancé can work on these together while keeping your sweet words a secret of course. Enjoy a glass of wine and let the words flow.
Practice your first dance: The best way to relieve stress is to dance. So, while you are home with your fiancé, take the opportunity to practice your first dance and have some fun. And by the time your wedding date comes around, you will both be professional dancers!
Work on your wedding song list: Wedding song lists are usually one of the “last minute” items on your wedding planning list. Take this time to work on your ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner reception song list. What songs are the most important to your relationship? And, you can break the stress and take a few twirls around the dance floor (aka the kitchen).
Try out some signature drinks with your fiancé: While you spend this time at home, try out a few fun recipes for signature drinks for your wedding. Make a list and start mixing up some drinks. Don’t forget to come up with a few fun and creative names for the signature drink signs And then, raise a glass and toast to a long and happy marriage ahead!
