How to Plan a Wedding in the Time of COVID-19

We’re living in unprecedented and unpredictable times, and our hearts go out to those affected by COVID-19. It can be hard to navigate its challenges and effect on our world as you plan your wedding. But love remains one of the best causes for celebration, now more than ever. So we’ve put together some tips and tricks for planning your special day amid all the stress and uncertainty.

Check out venue galleries and pictures online ahead of time. This will help visualize the spaces and jump start your vision.

Plan ahead and allow extra time. Flexibility is key.

Fill out our online wedding calculator to get a cost estimate. Knowledge is power, and this can help you pinpoint your top venue choices.

Spend time pulling inspiration and ideas for your big day. That way, when you’re able to visit the venue in person, you can move forward efficiently with the help of your dedicated Private Event Director.

FaceTime your venues. Let our Private Event Directors take you on a video tour of the facilities, so you can get a sense of the layout and décor possibilities while visiting in person isn’t possible.

Invite your wedding party via FaceTime or create an online video. Bonus points for recording the magic moment!

Send an online invitation versus paper. It’s better for the environment, too!

Consider live-streaming your festivities. If the big day is approaching, a live video would allow your loved ones to celebrate with you safely. Las Colinas Country Club recently hosted a virtual wedding such as this. It was intimate and special, and still a uniquely beautiful celebration of the couple’s love.

Follow CDC guidelines and rules closely and maintain open communication with your vendors. This is a time of great change for our world, and we’re all doing our best to stay healthy. This, above all else, is the most important thing you can do in planning.

Try to stay calm. At the end of the day, what matters most is your new union. Focus on enjoying the day with your new partner, even if it looks different than you’d imagined. Love is magical, and you’ve found it. That in and of itself is worthy of celebration!
