How can I plan my wedding in lockdown?
– Wedding venues are offering virtual show rounds and their websites may even have 360 degree video tours to give you a good idea of what the venue and space has to offer.
– Wedding venues are also offering low deposits to secure your date and if when you get to see the venue, you decide it’s not quite what you expected, they will then refund your deposit. *Be sure to ask on each individual venue’s policy before going ahead.
– The vast majority of suppliers have also taken their services online so book a virtual consultation and meet with your ideal wedding suppliers over Zoom. This way you can start to get an idea of what is available to you and what prices you can expect. This will greatly help you when it comes to budgeting and planning.
– Keep a look out for virtual wedding fayres! Event organisers and venues have been hosting some great virtual wedding fayres where you’ll get to see examples of what suppliers have to offer and all of their social media details. Shortlist the suppliers that catch your eye, give them a follow on Instagram or Facebook and check out their websites to start doing your research.
