Tips for Planning Your Wedding Remotely During the Pandemic

If you are one of the many engaged couples planning your wedding in the middle of a global pandemic, you’re probably overwhelmed and searching for some much needed guidance during this time. Wedding planning can be stressful enough but add COVID-19 into the mix and you have a whole new set of challenges to deal with.

Despite this, couples are still finding interesting and unique ways to say “I do”. With a bit of creativity and the many online tools at your disposal, it’s still possible to plan your dream wedding day!

To get you inspired, we spoke to Blue Nile, the leading online retailer of diamond engagement and wedding rings, to share our best tips for planning your wedding remotely during the pandemic.

Be flexible

One of the main challenges couples are facing amidst planning a wedding during a pandemic is the uncertainty of the ever-changing situation. Sadly, couples have been put through the wringer this year and have been faced with the economic, social, and logistical challenges of postponing and reworking their original plans. And at times, these challenges and changes are sprung on them when new restrictions arise forcing them to make immediate decisions.

That’s why we’re here to share essential resources and up-to date information that can simplify your planning process and keep you in the know of everything and anything – ensuring you have flexibility with vendors, venues and guest counts. This will make it easier than ever to plan a solid contingency plan.

Use the online wedding tools at your fingertips

In today’s world, we’re using technology for pretty much everything—especially during COVID-19. From booking appointments to editing photos and online shopping, it’s now easier than ever to plan from the comfort of your home. So why not go digital and experience a simple planning process for your wedding?

Couples can use online tools to save time, energy, and ultimately streamline the planning process. Some online tools even have the benefit of a central hub for couples’ wedding planning experience providing them a one-stop-shop to organize all the details of their big day.

One of our favorite online tools we use in conjunction with our clients is Aisle Planner. It acts as a hub for each and every client, empowering them to learn more about their wedding plans even when we aren’t in meetings which we all know, is completely virtual nowadays. ​It allows both parties to keep the communication streamlined and keeps the conversations going even when the planner or the couple is offline.

Other tools you can embrace for remote wedding planning include:

1. Digital invitations and guest list management tools will make last minute guest list changes less of a hassle and more of a breeze.

2. Virtual wedding dress shops like Anomalie, will help you get the perfect fit while at home.

3. Vendor management—connecting with your wedding planner and vendors online with seamless communication

4. Finding the perfect wedding rings with retailers like Blue Nile, whose experts can advise you on the best style and size, and have it safely delivered to your door.

Hire a wedding planner!

Now more than ever, couples are navigating uncharted waters. In these uncertain times, planners will help guide you through postponements, problem-solving, and planning for social distancing—ultimately, taking some level of stress off of your plate. It will be worth every penny you invest!

Small and intimate weddings can still be cool

We’ve been at the forefront of micro weddings for the past four years with our sister company The Pop-Up Chapel Co. and now that COVID-19 has completely changed the way weddings run for the foreseeable future, we want to reiterate that small and intimate weddings or elopements can still be cool. Small certainly does not negate style, quality, or streamlined planning. Couples can still have the wedding of their dreams, just on a smaller scale.

Remember why you’re doing this

No matter what—we must remember that​ ​the goal of a wedding is to celebrate the couple and their love story with loved ones, families, and friends. We truly encourage couples to plan full steam ahead and continue to be inspired no matter the situation. After all, you are marrying the person of your dreams and celebrating YOUR love story!
