If you’re engaged and planning your wedding, the COVID-19 pandemic has probably uprooted everything you’ve planned. Having to postpone your wedding can be heartbreaking, but it’s the best choice to keep you and your family safe. If you’re still in the early stages of wedding planning, it can be hard to know when to schedule your special day. We don’t know how long the pandemic will last, so how do you know your wedding won’t still be postponed, even if it’s months down the road? Unfortunately, you don’t. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t go forward with your wedding planning. We’ve put together some tips for planning a wedding, even if it might be postponed.
Get in Touch With Your Venue
Depending on the venue, you might not be able to discuss postponement if your wedding is further out, because they need to allow the upcoming weddings to be postponed first. You might not even be able to schedule a wedding at a popular venue any sooner than a year out. Still, if you can get in touch with your venue, be sure to discuss your concerns with them and plan for the worst. If you do this, you’ll be able to have a team at your side who’s ready to deal with any obstacles in the way of your wedding.
Consult Your Vendors
Vendors are a key part of weddings, and they need to be consulted if you’re thinking about postponing your wedding. If you’re negotiating a contract with a vendor, be sure to talk to them about the possibility of postponing your wedding. You’ll be able to come up with a plan and make a flexible contract. Sometimes it’s best to get your nervous energy out and plan for the worst so you can feel secure in your plans.
Keep Your Guests Updated
No matter how big your guest list is, these guests deserve to be kept up to date on every change you’ve made. Keeping your guests updated with regular emails will cut down on confusion and questions. Make a habit of emailing your guest list every week, two weeks, or every month. Even if any changes haven’t been made, it’s good to make sure your guests know exactly what’s going on. Your guests will appreciate the transparency, and they might even be able to offer advice.
