Some heartfelt advice if you are thinking about rescheduling your wedding.
Such strange times we are living through right now, and for so many reasons we are being faced with unnatural decisions. One decision a lot of couples are facing is whether or not they should reschedule their Big Day. And not only that, but if they do, when will it be safe to have a wedding again? Do we need to change our numbers? Should we wait 6 months or a year to get married?
So many questions, and unfortunately a lot of it is crystal ball. But I have some advice for couples who are going through this turmoil at the moment.
Advice for rescheduling your wedding:
2. Check with your venues and get a date that you’re happy with.
3. Notify all your suppliers, some may be already booked and you may be disappointed but all suppliers will help and advise you on the better replacement. When you’re in this industry you know other suppliers, who to recommend or not.
4. Make sure your new suppliers are reputable, check out reviews etc. on social media. Never be afraid to ask advice.
5. Once your new date is confirmed and your suppliers confirmed, decide to do something special on your original date. Organise a zoom ceremony, maybe book a celebrant to do an online commitment complete with wedding rings and a glass of bubbly.
6. Whatever you do mark that date and promise yourself two anniversaries the following year.
This is all in your hands, remember you will have your day. Your soulmate is still your soulmate, celebrate it.
No matter what couples decide to do, it’s likely going to be a very emotional time. Surround yourself with positives and break it down into manageable tasks. Planning a wedding is no small effort and rescheduling one certainly isn’t either, and so I empathise with you.
Some couples are choosing to embrace the social media live stream experience and are celebrating their weddings online and inviting their guests to join in on the occasion virtually! There are many ways you can mark the occasion so keep the faith and keep your heart up, whatever you do it will still be a very special occasion.
