5 Things To Do When Postponing Your Wedding

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, weddings are getting canceled and postponed almost every day. Guests can’t travel to wedding locations and due to the lockdown/social distancing, people can’t come together to celebrate.

If you’ve also realized that the pandemic won’t be coming to an end before your wedding day, then you may already be planning to postpone the wedding. Keep in mind, however, that this must be carried out with care. This way after the pandemic, you can pick up where you left off and proceed smoothly with your plans!

Speak to your vendors

The first thing to be done when postponing your wedding is to reach out to vendors. Speak to the venue owner about future availability. If they are going to be available, then they may not charge you an extra fee for a date change.

After speaking to the venue owner, contact other vendors to ask if they will also be available on your chosen date. If they won’t be, ask about refunds and if they have recommendations for other services to employ. If they will be available in the future, enquire about extra costs.

P.S; If you hired a wedding planner for your wedding, speak to him/her about your plans to postpone the wedding and have them assist you with the process.

Inform your guests

As soon as you speak to the vendors about your postponement plans, inform your guests. Informing them as soon as possible will give them enough time to adjust to the update. You can send out this information with a short but enlightening mail. This content of the email should include the reason for the postponement and the new wedding date. If you don’t have a wedding date set, let them know that you will get in touch with them ASAP.

Look at your wedding insurance

If you secured insurance for your wedding day, request a meeting to review the insurance. Contact your agent and ask if your insurance covers the situation. Although chances are that it wouldn’t, it is important that you ask anyway since most plans differ.

Give yourself a moment to be sad

Canceling or postponing an event you’ve been looking forward to is heartbreaking so it’s okay if you feel sad. In the process of postponing the wedding, give yourself time to grieve. You shouldn’t feel selfish and neither should you feel like your feelings aren’t valid. However, don’t let the sadness overwhelm you. Remind yourself that once the pandemic is over, you can have an even better wedding day!

Celebrate the original day anyway

Even though you aren’t getting married on the planned day, it still holds significance. So celebrate it anyhow you can. You can cook special meals, open a nice bottle of wine, and have dinner with your partner. Or you can turn up your stereo and dance!

Postponing a wedding can be confusing, especially if you’ve never had to do it before. These steps above can help guide you and make the process smooth!
