Postponing Your Wedding Due to Covid-19?
Updated: Apr 23, 2020
Whether you’ve chosen to postpone your Wedding due to the current situation or the decision has been made by your venue for you, you’re not alone! Every Bride and Groom getting married in the following few months is experiencing the same dilemma and heartbreak. Whilst we all know it's the right thing to do, we understand that it doesn't make the decision any easier.
Here's our tips for postponing your big day.
1. Think positively
Let's put a positive spin on things… yes, you may have wait that little bit longer, but it just gives you the little bit extra time to get things sorted and build up the excitement. It’s upsetting, but it is only postponed - not cancelled! Just because you have to move the date, it doesn't mean you have to lose out on having the wedding of your dreams.
Remember - the most important thing is the safety of you, and your friends and your family.
2. Contact your suppliers as soon as possible
We’ve found that suppliers are very understanding and accommodating in the current situation, but this can be a very stressful time and we’re here to help and support you. We can manage the move for you, helping you to secure a new date and liaising with all your suppliers on your behalf. We can also help you navigate the tricky terminology in your contracts, and better understand your rights and obligations to your suppliers.
This will mean you can focus on being excited, and avoid any of the stress that this unpredictable scenario has brought.
3. Contact your guests
Phone all of your guests as soon as possible - particularly if they may have made travel and accommodation arrangements already. It's a great way to check in with friends and family and make sure they're doing okay, but also, it may help them re-book accommodation and recoup some of the cost if they know a new date early on.
So rather than being worried and disappointed, it’s time to be positive and excited! After all - more time spent enjoying the bubble of being engaged isn't a bad thing. Every cloud has a silver lining, let's find yours!
