Read To Know This Ultimate Guide On How You Can Plan A Wedding After The COVID-19 Outbreak –
1. Wedding Dates
Obviously you are rescheduling your wedding and you must not rush about it. You must be really practical while fixing your wedding dates and be sure of the guidelines issued by the Government. Whether you will be allowed to have social gatherings or not, because we are really not sure when the whole lockdown will be uplifted. Keep in mind that currently there is no clarity on the lockdown, which is essential to curb the spread of COVID-19. Fix a date and book a venue only after things have settled more.
2. Plan Local Weddings Instead Of Destinations
You all know how it is not advisable to travel even after all this is over, so we think planning a local wedding would be better rather than having a destination one. All your guests would be travelling and it would be really unsafe for all of you. You never know when the flights and trains will resume and it will be very dangerous for all your guests to travel as soon as this ends.

3. Host Intimate Weddings
If you think social distancing would not apply after this, you are highly mistaken. To protect yourself and your guests, consider hosting intimate weddings and we bet it will be as gorgeous as you have ever imagined it to be. It would be easier to plan also after all this and you can always keep it elegant and simple and not over do it.
You must also decide on the guest list and number of functions, if you are going to have an intimate wedding. You cannot have three or four functions if you are hosting an intimate wedding, it should be really simple and sober.

4. Questions You Must Ask Your Vendors
You must have booked your wedding vendors too if your wedding was scheduled in the upcoming months. Now, when you have to postpone your wedding you must ask them the following questions –
A) How are they readjusting the advance payment?
B) Are they available on the rescheduled dates?
C) If not then how are they willing to refund the amount?
You must be very clear of all these things to avoid confusion later on.
5. Go For DIY Or Eco-Friendly Decor Ideas
Well, we all know how the economy is suffering so why not consider DIY decor or eco-friendly decor ideas. This way you can have a great fun-filled time with your family and trust us you can save a lot from this. A simple and minimalistic decor can add so much elegance to your wedding that any OTT decor can do too. Use flowers, drapes and other items from your household that are no longer in use and trust us it will look beautiful as ever. You must support small and local businesses and opt for local and seasonal flowers, use tent houses to decorate your wedding venue.
