Planning a Wedding in the Midst of Coronavirus? What To Do Now...

Updated: Jun 10, 2020

Let's be honest, if you've been watching the news it seems as though the world is ending. Schools are closing, sports have been suspended, and toilet paper is in short supply.

Meanwhile, you are supposed to be in the midst of wedding planning mode, but it's hard to focus on the future. You may be worried about your income, your health or traveling on your honeymoon.

It's a weird time, but here are some things to do to wait this out...

1) Take a Breath

Turn off the news and turn on a movie (a happy one, not an apocalyptic one). Realize that the history of mankind has made it through every pandemic and global crisis that has ever happened. Yes, there is tragedy, but try your best to practice gratitude for what you have (your health, your family, your partner) and know this too will pass.

2) Use This Time to Do Your Wedding Research

If you have a date planned, this is the time to stay in and research your wedding vendors and details. Now is the time to scroll on Pinterest and take advantage of the fact that you have the time to find those amazing favors, cute decorations, or the perfect cake topper.

You can have casual conversations with vendors, knowing that maybe you're not ready to book, but that you'll have a list of great people to connect with when things calm down.

If you don't have a date planned, now is the time to research venues and be prepared so that when you have a better idea of a timeframe, you'll be ready.

If you just got engaged, you're in a good spot. There is no need to rush into anything, but, you're excited! So now is the time to create a vision board and really think about the type of wedding you are envisioning. Now is also the time to start researching photographers for your engagement photos.
