Bridal Musing is where we always look at the bright side of things. After all, it’s what we do all day – browse and talk about weddings, celebrations, fashion, etc.
We’ve been enjoying the benefits of quarantining after the initial shock. We’ve spent more time with each other, saved money by cooking from our cookbooks, and worked on DIY projects, crafts, and personal tasks we never thought we would have time for.
There are many wedding planning tasks that you can accomplish while in quarantine.
Our friends from Be Inspire PR have put together ten ideas for what you and your partner can do during this downtime…
Book a virtual tour to compare your wedding venue options
