For the others, technology does make things more convenient. Many weddings happen to be live-streamed online through video conferencing platforms like Zoom or Google Meet, as a measure of missing none in the current situation, if that’s what you’d like.

Prepare the invitations

The wedding invitation is important as it’s an article for adding in your personal touch to create an unforgettable impression with your guests. An invitation should be beautiful and memorable. Use your list to prepare the invitations for all your guests. There are a lot of great businesses that cater to just this, making this a fairly convenient process.

Of course, a digital invitation can work for the ones who are watching the occasion live, if that’s what you’ve planned.

Plan the aesthetics

A beautiful event deserves to be held in a beautiful environment. One that’s appealing, highly positive, and soothing to the eyes. While many leave this job to their wedding planners, you can try your hand at it to add in a personal signature touch. After all, this is your big day!

Photography & Video

So it’s advisable to hire the best professional wedding photographers in town. Not just for the photographs, but the footage of the event that is to be preserved for yourself and potentially live-streamed to those who haven’t been able to visit in person.

Food & drink

It’s important to feed your guests with the best possible culinary choices. Professional chefs who specialize in wedding ceremonies are a given. You can add your personal touch here too, with the menu.

Also, do plan the distribution of eatables properly. The hustle-bustle of buffets may not be especially welcome, given the current situation. So make sure you arrange for alternatives like separate socially distanced tables with waiting staff.


The most unexciting, yet also the most practically important factor has been saved for last. Do make sure you keep the expenses tracked and controlled. Your wedding should be an effortless and enjoyable event without the slightest hint of finances creating hidden headaches for you.
