We spoke last week about why even though we’re living through some challenging times, now is the perfect time to plan your wedding (check out that One Curious Dream blog post right here).
As professional UK Wedding Planners, we know that the UK wedding industry is full of creative, resilient wedding suppliers and wedding venues so it’s wonderful that whilst social distancing is still a ‘thing’, these incredible wedding experts are making it easier and easier for couples to continue planning their wedding.
So, here are a few ideas of wedding planning activities that you can still undertake whilst living through the lockdown!
Virtual wedding venue tours
It’s been wonderful to see some incredible UK wedding venues offering virtual wedding venue tours so that couples planning their wedding who haven’t yet chosen their wedding venue can still have a good nosey around a range of different wedding venues!
From pre-recorded videos which walk you through the wedding venue, to live tours which are taking place on social media, this is a great way to get a feel for what these wedding venues can offer. If you have a wedding venue in mind, swing by their social media pages to see if they have any virtual wedding tours available or drop them a line to see if they plan to offer this in the future.
Virtual wedding supplier sessions
It’s been so lovely to see so many amazing UK wedding suppliers offering live sessions to share their talents and skills with couples who are planning their wedding. From live hair and makeup tutorials and musicians playing live from their living rooms, through to caterers showing you how to whip up the perfect starter, it’s an incredible way to get to know any wedding suppliers you’re thinking of using. Again, head over to their social media pages to find out more!
Online wedding fairs
These have become increasingly popular as wedding venues and wedding suppliers group together to share their talents on a specific day. These are useful for couples who just need a little wedding planning inspiration or a few wedding ideas as they seem to be popping up in most areas throughout the UK, it shouldn’t be hard to find one!
At One Curious Dream, our team of wedding planners love nothing more than getting together with new wedding planning couples to chat through the ideas for their big day and to share how we work our wedding planning magic!
Alas, given the current circumstances, our initial consultations are now taking place online, but as we’re not on-site producing amazing weddings at weekends for the foreseeable future, we can be flexible and work these around you. Lots of wedding suppliers are also offering online consultations so just because you can’t leave the house right now, it doesn’t mean you can’t continue with your wedding plans!
Fancy booking in a chat with our wedding planners? We’d love to hear from you! You can reach us on 0800 772 0765 or firstname.lastname@example.org
