As we adjust to a new normality, large group gatherings are still frowned upon, especially in-person weddings, because of all the hugs, kisses and elderly relatives and guests.
Instead, lots of couples have turned to virtual celebrations. And if you’re thinking about hosting an online wedding, first of all, congratulations!
Secondly, we’re here to help you get rid of any worries you might have about this whole at-home wedding planning. Today, we bring you some pieces of advice to guide you through this unprecedented time and help you get a wedding day just as romantic and memorable as the one you had planned (and much less expensive!).
Style your backdrop
Getting the right backdrop for your wedding ceremony is more than just finding a well-lit spot and tidying up. It’s also about setting the stage for the photos that you’re going to cherish for the rest of your life! All you need to do is make sure you are staging the area with the decor you’d like for the wedding photography. What was your aesthetic pre-pandemic? If you love greenery and a natural vibe, you can use anything from plants to flower arrangements, and if you’re going for more of a romantic decor, you can play around with candles and string lights.
Capture the moment
One of the best things you can do to elevate your virtual wedding is hiring a Pittsburgh wedding photographer to document the whole day!
Social distancing in place, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to dress up and have a wedding photographer capture all the special moments of the day. And look at the bright side too, since less people will be there, you can use the time to get more photos and videos as a couple, which many newlyweds don’t have the opportunity to get on their actual wedding. Take advantage of the private photoshoot and enjoy the special day with those close to you!
Send sweet treats to your guests
As we talk about leveling up, another way you can make your day extra special for you and your loved ones is providing treats for them! It’s not about spending lots of money, anything from buying cake for your guests to sending them some bubbly will do. Local delivery services are a great way to get this done, from Uber Eats to Postmates, and you’ll be making sure your guests enjoy the night with something extra!
