Our friends at 77 Diamonds is sharing this guide on how to plan or replan your wedding after a year of COVID-19 shut downs and restrictions.
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted and created a range of health and safety issues throughout society. We’ve all had to get used to a different way of living, from practising social distancing to wearing masks and using hand sanitiser on a regular basis.
All this may well have you thinking about your wedding, and large gatherings in general, in a different way. Here’s how to plan your wedding, whilst also taking health, safety and accessibility into account.
Decide on your budget
It’s important to agree on a budget before you do anything else. Knowing what you can afford to spend will give you a sense of control and keep your stress levels down.
Have an open conversation about how much you’ll be able to save, and how much money you’d be willing to put towards the wedding.

Pictures were one of my top priorities for my wedding. I spent a lot of time reading through photographers and even contacting some. I was also pretty nervous, I had never been professionally photographed before. Crystal and her team were SO easy to work with and immediately took away the nerves. I trusted her completely and I am so happy I did. Cannot recommend enough! Ellen - Yorktown VA
If you're looking for an amazing photographer who is relaxed, has experience, and knowledge look no further. Crystal took our engagement and wedding photos. Not only were her photos amazing, but she is extremely responsive to messages and will even help you when planning your big day. It was important to us to work with a photographer who has experience with same sex couples, and Crystal and Casey did a great job capturing everything for my wife and I. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. - Emily - Nellysford, VA
