Weddings are a joyous occasion where a couple officially gets together, in front of friends and family. The ambiance is full of love and laughter; not to mention, the romance in the air is obvious.

However, during the planning period, you would have to consider a lot of things, like keeping the décor, organization, and social regulations balanced.

Following the recent pandemic, the importance of social distancing is another important measure people have to keep in mind. However, at your wedding, and during the preparation period itself, it would be hard to maintain this practice.

Humans are not solitary creatures by default. Indeed, getting together and having fun, or even working together for the preparations, contact is unavoidable.

So, how do you do it, social distance while making sure everything is going as it should? Here are some tips that may come to your aid.

  1. ‘Pin’ it on your Board

You can have fun while you are creating your wedding ceremony plan, at home!

Indeed, there is no need for you to go outdoors for the wedding planning tasks. Just open your laptop and get busy on Pinterest. There are similar and good websites with images and wedding ideas. If you want, you and your partner can try those out as well.

Search for themes and get an idea about the kind of things other couples have tried previously. Out of the many you find, you can pick the items and design points you like. Stationary, dresses, flowers, and color palettes- you would have much to consider. Later, pin them to your dashboard in a mix and match manner.

Bonus point here, a lot of the images you would notice have the wedding party in full-scale stunning regalia. If you like one of those, save it for future reference and take inspiration from it.

  1. Plan the gift registry

Since you are virtually stuck at home and social distancing, use that time to plan and book your wedding gift registry. Indeed, search online about the kind of items you can provide to your guests and the expenses that would take.

So, how do you register them for timely delivery?

Luckily, you would find multiple websites for registering wedding gifts that supply items in bulk. You can use them to curate your choices and track your gift inventory as well!

  1. Research the venues

Again, you do not have to go to a venue to book it, although doing so does help. Instead of going to several venues directly, take your research on a digitalized level. First, check out the location(s) and then see what venues are available. Make a list of things you want for your wedding/reception location and the necessary items.

Like, do you want an outdoor wedding? Are you into a traditional wedding spot or something exotic like a beachside/mountainside celebration? How many people are you planning to invite?

Based on these points, cross out venues that cannot handle your requirements or budget. Then, contact them virtually or by calling. Later, you can visit when the location is not packed with people to verify its capacity and entry/exit points.

  1. Check out boutique rules

There are some salons and shops that are open for dress-shopping that follow social distancing rules. Before booking your dream wedding garment though, research the available options. Some of the designers provide custom-fitted gowns or pre-made options. Clearly, you would not run out of alternatives so take your time to decide.

  1. Virtual wedding band designing

Surely, by now, you have figured out that the online options are the best available routes you can follow. Fortunately, jewelry shops have gotten that memo as well. So, you can find online jewelry stores that are allowing digital-based ring selection-design and shipping them on time.

Here, having a proper discussion with the jeweler is key. Talk to them about you and your partner's ring preferences, and how to match them with the engagement rings. In fact, many of these shops offer advanced simulation features when the tech virtually shows a hand.

Thereafter, you can customize the ring size and shapes. So, go ahead and begin your search.

  1. Measure sizes online

Without a doubt, you can measure out your clothing sizes at home; so, do that. Your partner and you should take out your measuring tape and find your chest-waist-hip size ratios. Here, you can refer to the range of YouTube tutorials at your disposal.

For men's tux, some online stores provide a sizing guide. After all, not every designer follows the standard sizing structure. So, search the websites, mention your measurements, and begin the custom-creation process. Some even offer accessories to pair with the main attraction, like bowties for men and shoes for women.


All things considered, just because of social distancing, you do not have to put a pause to your planning stage. With advancements in technology, a lot of digital platforms are available for research, shopping, and delivery purposes. You can take their help and complete your full planning, all from the comfort of your home.
