Sometimes weddings need to be postponed and it can be an overwhelming process. Whether it’s a result of unforeseen situations, or even a pandemic like what we’re currently experiencing with COVID-19. I’m here to share some key points to consider as you postpone your wedding. You still deserve a loving wedding day, just at a later time. Don’t let the date change affect the vision you had of celebrating your unconditional love with friends and family.
Not all wedding vendors will be available for your new wedding date. Consider whether or not you care more about your selected wedding photographer or your venue. You wanted the photographer for how they would capture your wedding, but you also loved the venue too. Which one is more important to you? Which one would you prefer to work with based on their availability? Book with them first.
Once you have decided to book based on the photographer or venue’s schedule, flexibility with the remaining vendors is a must. Although your photographer or venue are available for your date selection, some of the other vendors might not be available for the new date. You may need to find new vendors.
Another thing to note is that if your caterer or florist has a team, they may still be available. However, most photographers, hair and makeup artists, and of course, venues, can only book one wedding at a time.
Another flexibility point is the day of the wedding. You may want to consider a weekday wedding instead of a weekend wedding in order to acquire your preferred list of vendors and venue. The advantages of a weekday wedding also include lower prices and more availability from preferred vendors.
Don’t feel like you and your fiance have to make the decision alone. Ask for friends to help. They won’t be as emotionally invested and can add an outside perspective.
Go back to your original vision board. Don’t forget to keep that excitement! If your summer wedding is now a winter wedding, have a breakthrough by brainstorming on Pinterest again.
Get the goosebumps again. Get all of the feelings again. Put on the dress and remind yourself that your day will take place.
