7 Things to Add to Your COVID-19 Wedding Planning Checklist

Stuck at home because of COVID-19? Now is a great time to get some of that wedding planning checked off your list. While you can’t go anywhere or meet any vendors in person, there are so many things you can do online from your couch. 

Here are a few things to add to your COVID-19 wedding planning checklist.

1. Schedule virtual meetings and book your vendors!

Let’s have a virtual cocktail or coffee and get to know each other! Since a lot of couples are having to reschedule their weddings due to the coronavirus, next year’s dates are booking fast. 
To jump on the vendor bandwagon, contact the vendors you’re interested in booking and check to see if your date is available. Now’s the time to ask all the questions, research, and read reviews
When you find vendors you’d like to book, schedule a virtual meet and greet! 

2. Make or update your wedding website

Wedding websites make it easy to share wedding day information with your guests and give any last minute updates quickly – say for instance if you had to change your wedding date because of a pandemic. You can also share all of those cute engagement photos here 🙂
A wedding website is also great because you can include your registries all in one place. When people start asking all the questions about your wedding day and your registry, point them to your website.

3. Get those DIY wedding projects finished

If you’re anything like me, you like to DIY things and end up finishing them at the last minute. Well, now’s your time to change that. If you’re DIYing any decorations, favors, or wedding party gifts, make a date with your fiance to Netflix and get those things done!

4. Curate your Pinterest inspiration board

Chances are, your wedding day vision has changed since you started this board. Make it reflect your current wedding day vision and fill it with images that inspire you. I’m a true believer in creating vision boards and am a Pinterest addict myself. 

5. Create and fine tune your guest list

Building a guest list is just one of those tasks you’d probably rather not mess with but it is the foundation for just about everything for your wedding day. Knock this out over a few days and have those conversations with your parents and future in laws. 

6. Make your family photo list

A few weeks before your wedding, your photographer will ask for a list of family photo combinations. Start compiling this list now, you can always revise or add to it as your date gets closer. When compiling the list think about any grandparents, parents, siblings (and their family) that will be attending. 

7. Tackle your wedding day looks and buy accessories online

Search the internet for dress styles you love and hair and makeup looks you would like to try out. Decide what color your groom will wear and if he will wear a statement tie. You can even buy some accessories online – thank God for the internet, am I right? Your wedding day looks are very important and will be memorialized in your wedding photos so this is worth a little research and dreaming.

These are just a few things you can add to your COVID-19 wedding planning list. What other ways are you prepping for your upcoming wedding during this time? Let me know in the comments!
