Postponing your wedding step 1. Talk to your venue as soon as you can, they should have alternative dates available for you to choose from. Contact your suppliers ASAP to secure your new date.
Read through and understand your contracts – be aware that your suppliers are often small businesses who may be battling through this pandemic too.
Check your wedding insurance and see exactly what you’re covered for. Make sure any telephone conversations are followed up with emails as proof of discussions in case they’re needed further down the line.
Tell your guests – if you have a wedding website update the information on there or consider sending your guests an email explaining the situation. If you prefer to phone guests that’s fine, but it’s advisable to split the list with your partner. This saves time and halves the load of telling people the news.
Cry. It’s fine to mourn the day you planned which is now not going to happen when you wanted it to.
Then pick yourself up and start planning your new big day. Consider making adaptions to suit the new season if you’ve pushed it back to later on in the year. For example floral options may need to be revised if fresh flowers were being used. Cocktails may have been chosen to reflect a specific time of year – use this time to trial more! See our menu for inspiration.
Above all be kind – to each other and your suppliers. You will have built a relationship with them in the planning stages and they will be as upset as you over this postponing.
