Wedding Planning Tasks You Can Do from Your Home

It is no secret that many of our grand plans were forced to be postponed last year. Many brides and grooms have found themselves at home, instead of out there, organizing their big day. However, there is a lot you can get done even without stepping out of your house. Engage yourself in these tasks for the time being and you’ll get a head start when things are finally back to normal!


Make your guest list

Regardless of the size of the celebration, coming up with your guest list requires some forethought. You probably don’t want to go overboard with the numbers, but you also don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings. With plenty of time to think, it will be less likely that you miss someone important. It would be a good idea to stay organized when putting together your guest list. Create a spreadsheet to keep your side and your fiancé’s side separate and easy to look through.


Create a wedding registry

Nowadays, many couples utilize a wedding registry. It’s a fantastic way to make things easier for both the couple and the guests. You don’t have to worry about unwanted gifts, while your guests don’t have to come up with gift ideas. You can use your time at home for coming up with a wedding registry that will give a solid start to your new life together! First of all, decide where you will register. You can choose a particular website like Amazon or use a registry service where you can add items from any store. You can also go for a cash registry if you need money for home renovations.


Research vendors

Finding the right vendors for your big day is a time-consuming task. Before you even start giving them calls, you need to narrow down your list. This is something you can do from the comfort of your living room. Go online and research each vendor thoroughly. Don’t stop at reading what’s on their website; you can get even more authentic information if you seek out reviews on other sites. People don’t shy away from sharing their experiences on forums and social media.


Book what you can

You don’t want to end up without your favorite DJ or find yourself in a pinch because your florist is already fully booked. So, you should get things in order and start booking what you can for your big day. Thankfully, you can do everything online nowadays. If you already have your eyes on a venue, it’s a good idea to call dibs on it. Booking wedding day transportation ahead of time is paramount as well, especially if you are thinking about adding style to your big day with a special wedding car hire. Needless to say, you should also contact your photographer, videographer, baker, and the list goes on.


Put together a playlist

Your reception playlist is what’s going to determine the mood for the night and whether people will feel inclined to stand up and dance. While putting together a playlist might not look like a difficult task, leaving it for the last minute is not a good idea. As soon as you sit down to compile the playlist, your mind will go blank. So, add songs gradually and watch your playlist grow. If you have a particular theme for your wedding, think about what kind of music would fit the vibe and search the depths of Youtube for the perfect songs.


Try different hair and makeup looks

You don’t have to wait for your hair and makeup trials in order to start experimenting with your wedding day look. There are so many resources on the internet that you can simply sit down and follow tutorials to try out something new. In addition, since you are at home, you don’t have to hold back – you can try anything and see if it’s something you like. Who knows, you might unexpectedly come across a fantastic and easy-to-do hairstyle and you’ll end up doing your own hair on your big day.

Browse décor

The decoration is one of the most fun parts of organizing your wedding. However, it can also be tedious, especially if you aren’t one to make compromises. You can get started with preparing your wedding décor while at home. If you have yet to decide on the atmosphere, browse Pinterest for inspiration and secure your décor in online stores. Going DIY is also a great way to add a personal touch to your wedding décor. It doesn’t have to be overwhelming either. You can simply customize napkins, candles, and other pieces of décor to make them unique.


No one would argue that wedding planning is hard work. Thankfully, you can get a lot of things done while staying at home. Hopefully, this list will be helpful.
