The wedding industry has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. These times have been difficult for almost everyone, but we’re all trying to find the silver lining one way or another. Covid 19 hit us hard, but it can’t stop us from pushing for a better future.
At WedDresser, our most important goal is to help you bring your dream wedding to life. The current uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t stopped us from doing that. We know so many of you are being faced with tough choices, seeing months of planning turned upside down. WedDresser is here to help you keep the show going, no matter where you are.
Whether your wedding falls on a much later date already, or you’re choosing to postpone, or even perhaps to celebrate in a different way, there’s a lot to think about when planning your big day. If you’re just starting to dive into planning, it’s natural to have a million “what if” questions about the future. While all of this is uncertain, we hope this news won’t cripple you or take away the excitement that comes with wedding planning. This is the moment you’ve been waiting for, and while the landscape of the world might look different right now, your loved ones are going to be very excited to celebrate with you when your wedding comes. So consider the points below as you continue to plan in the wake of coronavirus.
A few Wedding Planning Tips
Start Planning Now
If you’re set on getting married in 2021 you’ll definitely need to move fast! There’s competition from 2020 couples who are postponing, so it’s certain that dates and venues will start to go quickly. If you’ve already set a date for 2020, you should most likely have a few things in place, like your vendor lists and venues. Communication is key in ensuring that everything is going on as planned. Don’t lose touch with your vendors. Stay on top of things.
Hire Your Vendor Team if You Haven’t
Start looking for vendors for your wedding. Our efficient bridal consultants can also help you with that, especially if you stay within Accra. We have a list of a few vendors that will be glad to provide the best services for your wedding. Contact us for more information on that.
Don’t do it alone
If you’re looking to hire a professional wedding planner, do it as soon as possible. Like we said, it’s important that you start to plan and get things underway as quickly as possible. Let someone do the heavy lifting you. However, if that’s not the route you want to take, and you want to plan the wedding by yourself, we recommend you get as much help with it as you’d need. Talk to already married couples who planned their own weddings, as well as family members and friends. Here at WedDresser, your wedding needs are our biggest concern, and as such we’d also love to help with any questions you might have. Don’t let the work load weigh down on you, you’re not alone.
It’s easy to get lost thinking about all the negatives surrounding the current situation, so it’s important that you don’t let any of it kill your excitement. Follow uplifting and inspirational pages on Instagram. Also check out our Instagram page for bridal inspirations. Let the stories and images of other people’s happily ever after motivate you not to give up on the dream of having your own. The truth is, you’d definitely get married, and it’ll be exactly as beautiful as you’ve always imagined.
