Steps to Take If You Have to Postpone Your Wedding
If you set a date for your wedding and have had to postpone it due to the current events going on in the world, you’re probably feeling a range of emotions. While It’s normal to feel sad, angry and disappointed, know that you will still have your dream wedding day – there are just a few adjustments that need to be made first.
What to Consider When Postponing Your Wedding Day
Get a Professional Involved
If you’ve been working with a wedding planner up until this point, they’re the first person you should turn to at this time. Working with a wedding planner can help take some of the pressure off when you’re already feeling upset about the postponement. The last thing you want to do is make emotional decisions. By letting a third party help you, it will be easier to make logical decisions about what to do next.
Get Realistic About Your Financials
Unfortunately, when there’s a change of plans, it can result in financial losses. You may be able to negotiate with your venue and vendors so that you lose little to no money. However, it’s still best to have realistic expectations. There is a chance that you might lose money or need to pay extra to make the necessary adjustments.
Get In Touch with Your Venue
If you would prefer to start looking at new dates, get in touch with your venue about availability. Again, it’s best to have realistic expectations. If your venue is popular, you may need to wait several months for a new date. If you don’t want to wait, you can always look at new venues, but consider that you would likely be losing your deposit.
