Planning Your Wedding in Lockdown

Planning a Wedding is no easy task at the best of times, but lockdown makes it even more difficult. You can’t visit your venue, you can’t try on your dress, you can’t meet your suppliers – it must be a nightmare! But… there are lots of things you can do! Here are our top five tips for planning your big day during lockdown.  

1. Use Social Media

Social media has always been a great planning tool, but it is absolutely vital during lockdown.

Pinterest and Instagram are fantastic for inspiration – everything from the cake and the cutlery to the dress and the dancing. With so many images out there, remember to create boards on Pinterest and bookmark images on Instagram so that you can find your favourite images again to share with family and friends. Try searching for local venues and suppliers, as well as local hashtags (e.g. #dumfriesweddings #dumfriesandgallowayweddings #dumfriesdj #dumfriesphotographer #rkdjwedding) to get some local inspiration.

Everyone is familiar with Facebook, but have you thought about using it for your planning? There are so many things you can use it for. You can search for local suppliers, read reviews and see photos of their latest work. It’s also great for keeping in touch. Whether it’s a quick message to your Bridesmaid, a video call with your Wedding party or checking in with your suppliers – it’s so easy. Remember to follow all of your local suppliers to keep up to date with the latest offers and discounts – there’s some great deals out there at the moment!

2. Book Suppliers

With so many Weddings and Event postponing to later in 2020 or 2021, suppliers are booking up really fast. You really want to try and book suppliers as soon as you can to avoid disappointment. Whilst you can’t meet up with them in person, you can always give them a ring or arrange a video call.  

3. All the Small Things

You might have a bit more time for planning during lockdown so think about the small things that could make your big day that little bit more special. It could be framed photos of your parents’ and grandparents’ Weddings or the traditional something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Things will get really busy after lockdown, so why not get organised now!  

4. DIY

Sticking with the idea that you might have a bit more time at the moment, could you save yourself some money and do a little DIY? Whether it’s bunting, table centres, invitations, place cards, favours… the list goes on and on. Check out Pinterest and Instagram for some inspiration and get creative!

5. Look After Yourself

Whilst it’s great to plan ahead, there’s no getting away from the fact that this is a difficult and stressful time. Remember to take time for yourself and enjoy the planning for your big day. Arrange a video call with your Wedding Party to chat through your plans or just have fun with a virtual quiz, Mr & Mrs competition or movie night (Bridesmaids is always a good shout for a movie night!). Stay positive and look forward to what is going to be the best day of your life!

 
 

What Customers Said...

 

Myself and my partner Ryan can’t thank Ross enough for being part of our special day.

He was our piper for guests arriving, our ceremony and during our photos. He did an absolutely amazing job and the sound of the pipes was absolutely incredible a special part of our day that we will always remember.

Ross then was our DJ at night after our meal and he accommodated all our song requests to the best of his abilities and also has a do not play section for any songs that may be hard to hear on your special day which I think is a fantastic feature!

Ross was in constant contact which put us at ease and was absolutely incredible with moving our date following the pandemic postponing our original 2020 date and did this without taking additional cost or without question.

Everyone had a fantastic night and Ross also took some lovely photos of our guests and ourselves dancing at night which I thought was a lovely last touch.

If you are considering Ross at all we would highly recommend he is both an incredible piper and DJ, very reasonably priced for his time and what he brings to your day and just an all round lovely guy!

Thanks again Ross 😊

Excellent Service From The Day We Booked. FIRST CLASS** top DJ. Excellent service from the day we booked Ross. I was emailing him on a regular basis and was always very prompt at responding. Our guests were able to choose their own songs and the evening playlist was fantastic, the floor was never empty. One thing I do remember about Ross was his lovely manner and his big smile. Thank you for making our evening perfect - get the 28th October 2042 in the diary!

Diane & Ian Anderson

Ross was our DJ and ceilidh caller for our wedding on 29th June. His requests system worked extremely well and he did a good job getting people up to dance. His set up and lighting added to our decor and Ross himself has been a pleasure to work with on the run up to our big day. Thanks again, Ross!

Ashton & Bobby Osborne

Ross played at our wedding at Springkell and was absolutely fantastic. Even before our wedding, he seamlessly coordinated our schedule, had an easy-to-use system, and much appreciated payment process. On our wedding day, he was friendly, and even got our 35-person wedding dancing for hours! We had some last minute schedule changes that he rolled with easily, making adjustments and continuing to play a great mix of music all night, from wedding classics to modern hits that all ages enjoyed. Every song that we requested was played and he interspersed our requests seamlessly. The dance floor was hopping all night. The lighting, especially the stars, were also a huge hit! Thank you Ross for making this American couples' wedding day perfect.
