HOW TO PLAN YOUR DREAM WEDDING DURING LOCKDOWN?
Being wedding planners and a part of the wedding planning industry for over eight years, it is safe to say that the Corona pandemic is an unprecedented event in wedding planning history. Hotels shut down, travel plans restricted, airports shut down and big groups getting together, all of which are essential in a destination wedding are difficult in these times.
We at Elite Wedding Planner had 3 weddings in March (the month the pandemic struck India) and 2 weddings in April. While one wedding got cancelled, we have pushed the others for early next year.

We are in contact with the managers of most of the top hotels in India and even in lockdown, we can get you a quote of any hotel of your choice.
4. Make decor mood boards
The good thing about the lockdown is that now you have extra time on your hands. Why not utilize it to make mood boards on pinterest or a simple word file on how each function would look. You can make mood boards based on each function, based on your outfits, based on the flowers you love, based on colors and based on pretty decor elements that you want included in your wedding. This will help to bring to life the vision you have for your special day.
Once you have your mood board ready, you can even share it with us if you’d like us to ascertain how much this kind of decor would cost you in the future.
