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...

 

Hi Ross, Thanks for your message and thank you so much for being part of our big day! You did a fantastic job. Thank you for being so flexible with the schedule and for making our evening such an enjoyable one. I have a feeling that the Canadian side, in particular, will be talking about the ceilidh for a long time. I've had a quick look through the photos and they look great. I will most definitely be recommending your services to anyone who's looking for entertainment. Thanks again and all the best.

Fraser & Nikki Kirk

Ross was exceptional at our Critical Care Unit Burns Supper. Playing the pipes numerous times throughout the evening (beautifully) and also keeping guests dancing all night with his fab disco. We had a blast! Everyone is raving on about how great a night they had. Thanks again x 🎉😊

Anne-Marie Cossar

Thank-you very much from us all for last Friday. Everyone had a good night and the photos seem to show that too. I was pleased we'd chosen the uplighters for the room as well. The final choices of music from our playlist and the closing songs at the end of the night was very much appreciated and I think really worked well. I would not hesitate to recommend you to other folk. Best wishes and thank-you.

Bernie Jones

Ross was the piper and DJ at our Wedding on the 6th July 2019. Ross has an online system where you can put in your song requests and special dances. We both found this easy to use and a great feature. Ross met with us to discuss our plans for the day, he did everything he could to make sure our wedding was perfect. We can’t thank you enough for being part of our day. You were brilliant! William and I would highly recommend Ross. Thanks again ☺️

Suzanne & William Wakefield

Ross played at our wedding last week and from the minute we booked him we couldn’t fault his service. He played to our company and the dance floor was never empty all night. Fantastic tunes and great entertainment. Thanks very much Ross
