As we quickly begin to approach the new year, we may also be getting closer to your 2021 wedding date. Whether you’re planning your wedding for the first time or you’re rescheduling due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are some things you should be considering when planning your special day.
Here are some tips to follow as you begin to plan your 2021 wedding:
Pick Your Wedding Date(s)
If you haven’t already, the first step in your wedding planning is to pick your wedding date. Once you and your fiancé decide on a special day, select a few alternative dates as a backup incase you need to reschedule.
Keep in mind that weekday weddings are typically more available than weekend weddings. There are plenty of benefits to having a weekday wedding, including having more dates to choose from. Remember, just because your wedding falls on a weekday does not change your marriage’s value or meaning.
Book Your Suppliers As Soon As Possible
Due to many weddings needing to be postponed until 2021, your wedding vendors and suppliers are being booked quickly. If you’re looking to have special florals or other décor for your big day, make sure you are contacting your supplier as soon as possible to make sure that they are available for your new wedding date.
If you’re booking a new vendor, you should ask questions about their deposit, postponement, cancellation, and refund policies before booking them. With the uncertainty still high in 2021, it’s always safe to ask these questions and create a backup plan for yourself.
Create a Smaller Guest List
If you’re planning a wedding for 2021, odds are, you’re going to have to scale back on your guest list. In 2020, brides and grooms were heartbroken when they had to uninvite guests to their wedding. Because we see the wedding season continuing to take safety precautions in 2021, we suggest creating a smaller guest list just in case your wedding needs to shift to a smaller event.
Researching Your Wedding Venue
Before booking your wedding venue, make sure you are researching venues that offer a stress-free wedding day tailored specifically to you.
