On our recent interview with Sophisticated Weddings , we touched on the current pandemic and provided advice on how to handle postponing your wedding.
It’s best to postpone and not cancel
When overwhelmed, you might be tempted to throw in the towel. But if you cancel, you risk losing most or all of the money you’ve already put out and may still be required to make future payments. Instead, try to postpone to a later date if you can. When this is over, you and your fiance’ will have even more of a reason to celebrate!
Flexibility will be important when picking a new date. Wedding vendors often book up to a year or more in advance so your new date options might be limited. Perhaps you’ll have to forgo a Saturday wedding for a Friday, Sunday or weekday, or get married during the winter off-season. With that said, many couples are in the same boat right now, looking to reschedule their events so don’t wait too long to pick a new date.
It’s also important to remember that it’s OK to be emotional. Whether you’re sad, angry, or confused, your emotions are valid and real!
