Tips That Will Help You Plan Wedding While Being in a  Long-Distance Relationship

  1. Equally Divide The Tasks: When you both are on the same page as to who has to do what, it gets simple to plan the wedding. Hence, before starting with the preps, divide the tasks well, keeping your partner's skills, time, and everything else in mind. For example, if your partner is in the US or some other country, and you are in India, you cannot expect them to do things like talking to the wedding planners, etc. Instead, they can be in charge of the guest list, make one and share it with you. Once you both approve it, they can go ahead and arrange the invites. Similarly, they can also help find the best locations, and you can finalize one from the list. You will have your family members to help you with the wedding prep, but once you divide the task well between the two, the process becomes simple. 
  1. Plan A Virtual Meeting Weekly: You may talk to your partner daily, but keep one day in the week, especially for the wedding preps. Here you can arrange a call with your planners, decorators, caterers and ensure that your partner joins the meeting too. This way, you both will know the progress and understand the time, effort, and money you need to invest in planning the wedding of your dreams. A long-distance relationship is difficult to manage, but with planning, you can plan a smooth wedding. So make sure to have such meetings and prepare a checklist to see what work is done and how much is left. 
  1. Shop Online Together: Just because you are in different cities/countries, it doesn't mean that you cannot shop together. In this day of technology, everything that is available offline is available online as well. So make the most of the technology and shop with your partner online. Video call your partner while shopping for the outfits, and this way, you can finalize your wedding outfits together. The beauty of a long-distance relationship is even if you are physically far from each other, you are always connected, so make the most of it. However, if you are someone who prefers offline shopping, you can shortlist some outfits and send the pictures to your partner, and he can do the same - this way, you will know who's wearing what. 
  1. Plan A Small Trip Before Wedding: If you are just a few hours away from each other, plan a small weekend trip and visit your partner to discuss wedding-related things. If your partner is home for the weekend, make most of that time and arrange meetings with the planners, caterers, etc. Ensure that during that period, both the families sit together and check the wedding preps. When your partner is physically available, planning the wedding becomes simple. Convince your partner to come, or else you plan a trip and make sure that all the wedding details are discussed, and all the decisions are made, keeping both your preferences in mind. 
  1. Ask Your Friends For Help: Managing a long-distance relationship can be tiresome, and that's when your friends step in and help you with things. So for planning the wedding, make sure that you call your friends and ask them to help you with the preps. Allot some definite tasks to them, ask them to coordinate with you and your partner, and get things done. You can also make them in charge of handling the wedding to-dos. This way, you and your partner will know how much is left and what is done. Friends are always there to help you, so don't shy away from asking for help, especially when you need it the most. 

Wedding planning is anyway a task, and when you have to do it in a long-distance relationship, it can get a bit tough.
