5 Ways You Can Have Fun Planning Your Wedding Online

Has Covid19 affected your wedding planning? Are you planning your wedding online and need some inspiration to make it fun and worthwhile? Don’t sweat! Here are 5 creative ways you can make your online wedding planning fun and exciting. Thanks to technology, you and your partner can easily celebrate your nuptials and wedding planning process with your nearest and dearest – even if you’re stuck at home.

Start a Shared Pinterest Account

One way you could get your guests (and yourselves) excited for the big day is by having everyone in your circle involved in the process. Get started with a shared Pinterest account where you and your bridal party, guests or family can add to the collection of your favourite #weddinginspo images. Creating a group board will allow you to share a visual representation of what you want your wedding to look like without physical interaction. Trust us, your bridal party and guests will totally enjoy this, especially if there’s a contest for the “best mood board” plugged in at the end of the night, adding some competitive excitement to the experience.

Set Up a Virtual Wedding Dress Appointment with your #BridalSquad

As you continue your wedding planning, one top-of-the-list priority for every bride is getting the perfect Wedding Dress after months of searching for the right one. Although COVID restrictions have made it difficult to proceed with in-store dress trials, several bridal retailers like Sash and Bustle and Ferre Sposa are now offering virtual bridal appointments or offering to bring their services straight to your home. Cool, right?!

Explore Virtual and Micro Wedding Options with your Vendors

As we navigate through this time, one thing we’ve found to be consistent is the continued support and dedication our local vendors are showing to their partners and clients. Many vendors are adjusting to the #covidlife by offering flexible virtual appointments for venue tours and booking inquiries.

Vendors are also offering customized services to support couples affected by COVID19, many of whom are still looking to book small-scale and intimate wedding ceremonies. In response to this demand, we’ve joined forces with some of the best-in class vendors in the industry to provide Micro Wedding packages for couples considering the most simplified planning process with 50 guests or less.

Host a Virtual Bachelorette/Bachelor Party!

Virtual planning sessions with your bridal party can easily turn out to be a super fun activity. Get your favourite glass of Vino, make a Spotify playlist together and set the mood! Set a theme to encourage hilarious outfits, play a visual version of mad libs with bristol board and sharpies, and celebrate in a way that feels truly authentic to you. You can even have boxes of pre-mixed cocktails, snacks and props delivered to the home of each person in advance. This is a great way to unwind from the daunting wedding planning process and get some much needed socializing time. To make this happen, use one of the many free apps like Google Hangout, Zoom and Skype that are extremely user-friendly!

Postponement Date Night

Pretty bummed out about having to postpone your wedding due to the effects of COVID-19? So are we. But we’re hoping this idea of a postponement date night with your partner can bring you some comfort and joy in the midst of everything. Lock in a day (maybe your original wedding date) and do something unique but more importantly, something that’s personal to the two of you. We recommend watching your favourite romcom, ordering in from your fave date night spot and partaking in a fun wedding activity such as brainstorming seating charts and jotting down our wedding vows. Make a playlist in advance of your top contenders for a first dance song to listen to while eating- heck try dancing to them to see how you feel! This instantly turns into a romantic and intimate evening worth remembering! If this sounds like your kind of night, check out our LBL Wedding Activity Playbook that we made to support our clients affected by the pandemic.
