Tips & Tricks
As COVID-19 continues to affect people around the world, many engaged couples have had to decide whether to cancel or postpone their weddings. Having to make this decision is not something you were planning to do, nor is it the most pleasant experience. The good news is that regardless of what you decide, you will still marry the love of your life.
Before we go into whether you should postpone or cancel your wedding, know that it’s perfectly okay to feel emotional about having to put your plans on hold. Whether you’re feeling sad or angry, let yourself experience the disappointment – just don’t make any irrational or emotional decisions at this time. Lean on your partner and those you love for the support you need.
To Cancel or Not to Cancel
So, what should you do about your impending nuptials?
It’s highly recommended that you rather postpone your wedding instead of canceling it.
If you have to cancel your wedding instead of postponing it, you may end up suffering a major financial loss. Many vendors will be unable to give your deposit back and previously paid payments. If you had to postpone your wedding, however, the financial ramifications will be far less severe.
Many couples are also put off by the fact that so many adjustments will need to be made. It’s important to remember that your venue and vendors are here to assist you, which means you won’t need to figure this all out on your own.
Plus, your friends and family are here to help you make the necessary changes too. Whether it’s coordinating guests or helping you choose new flowers that will be in season at the time of the revised date, help is available.
You can still look forward to your big day despite the uncertainty that we’re all currently facing. Just take it one step at a time and know that you’re not alone.
