The current coronavirus pandemic has turned our world upside down. I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined something like this happening. Couples across the globe are now being faced with the decision decision to postpone and reschedule their entire wedding day.
Should you postpone your wedding?
With the government mandate you may find yourself with no choice but to postpone your wedding date.
Keep in mind that if you are forced to postpone, it’s okay to be upset. It’s okay to be disappointed and cry. Try to remember that this is only temporary. It will not last forever. Say that with me now. It will not last forever. Your wedding day is not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.
At the time of publishing this post I have had all of my weddings postpone from the end of March through the end of June. Some couple’s are rescheduling for the fall, others for 2021, and others are still deciding. I have a few couples who are planning a smaller ceremony in the immediate future and going to wait on the big reception until the fall or next year.
The decision to postpone is so personal. Is your wedding destination? Do you have a ton of guests traveling? Are you willing to wait and see or will postponing make you less anxious, even if it is disappointing? Are you interested in a smaller wedding with a larger party later? I am happy to talk through any of these options with you! Even if you are not one of my couples- I am here for you!
Things to consider:
Things are changing so quickly which makes it even more difficult to move forward with your wedding planning.
If you are having a destination wedding or have a lot of guests who are traveling you will want to make the decision sooner than later. If you are thinking about postponing contact your venue and vendors ASAP so that you can coordinate dates.
How to postpone your wedding:
Notify your vendors immediately. Believe me when I say that we all want to be there for you!! I love my couples so much and become so invested in them I absolutely want to work with them through this so that they know they are now alone and I can make sure they are taken care of.
