7 Wedding Tasks You Can Do At Home Now During MCO
Don’t panic! As our country fights against COVID-19 and it is now reliant on responsible social-distancing and strict movement restrictions demanded by the government, it’s a hardship for most couples who're planning their big day or were looking forward to the planned ceremony. Your wedding might be on a halt right now but that does not mean your productivity should too! Here we give you 7 wedding tasks you can accomplish at home regardless of where you are in this wedding planning process.
1. Pamper Yourself
We couldn’t stress this enough to our brides that might be too consumed with all the wedding planning and news about the uninvited guest — Coronavirus. Me-time is a vital habit in order to have a healthy, sustainable life. Don’t feel guilty about taking the time required just to take care of yourself. Stick to a workout regimen, try out new baking recipes, do meditations/devotions, have a bubble bath, throw on a mud mask, watch and cry to a romance movie while scented candles are burning. Just make sure to spend time with yourself; taking care of your physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing above all else.
2. Organize Your Pinterest Boards
As desperate as you are to avoid the news about Coronavirus, revisiting your boards is a great way to distract yourself. Whether you have already shared with your planner or you haven’t started any inspiration boards yet, viewing and organizing wedding visual inspirations ensures that you’ll hit the ground running when you visit your vendors once the pandemic is over. Plus you can nail some other important decisions now like what wedding theme you’d like to go for, what flowers you’d like? What’s more, wedding inspirations are most aesthetically pleasing to watch and guarantee to make you relax and smile.
3. Build Your Wedding Website
Creating a social media webpage or wedding websites are one of the best ways to keep your guests informed, especially if the pandemic has caused you to push back your wedding date. If you have not set a wedding date yet, it’s still good to start building your website now. Wedding websites are the central hub for all the info about your wedding, even though some of the details are still up in the air. Include details like your banquet menu, directions to your wedding venue and so on. Take some extra time to include lots of lovely extra pages like you and your fiance’s love story, old pictures, pre-wedding photos if you have, and little bios and hashtags about your love journey and wedding party. Some best sites you can build your website from are Wix, Weebly, Site123 and Strikingly.
4. Plan A Playlist
Planning and choosing music that you want to be played during your wedding might sound fun and easy, but it can also be quite time-consuming and overwhelming. It can take days, even weeks, to brainstorm all of the tunes you want your wedding band to sing or play during your wedding. There are a lot of factors to consider, such as what mood you want to set, what music you want to be played during your wedding march, what songs your guests would enjoy? You may also have songs that are special to you, your partner, and your family that you want to include during your wedding. So it’s better to start planning now by listening to different genres of music that can be included during your wedding. Or you can check out Bridalgram’s premade wedding Spotify playlist here!

6. Write Your Wedding Speech
Take some time to sit down and make a dent in your wedding speech. We encourage you and your fiancé to give wedding speeches a go as it’s the best moment during your wedding to express your gratitude to your guests and express your love verbally to each other. You can also request your parents, family members, best man, maid of honour et cetera to get writing too! While you’re at it, you can also consider writing thank you notes to your wedding vendors or long distanced guests that have sent well wishes.
7. Check Your Venue’s Real Weddings
One of the best ways to get more inspiration for your wedding is to see how other couples’ have once transformed your desired venue in their previous wedding ceremony. Search for good locations online that are suitable for couple photographs; learn how other real couples decorated the venue and during the ceremony. Check if they have added any special wedding decor ideas to make their wedding memorable. Ask yourself: do you love their colour schemes? the way their dining tables are arranged? If so, how would you want it differently for your wedding? You can begin by browsing our website for real weddings blogs and get cute ideas and inspirations!
