Although no couple would want to be forced to put off their wedding, there are instances when they can’t avoid rescheduling. That’s the truth that many couples who have spent months planning their weddings now face because of the coronavirus pandemic that’s currently wreaking havoc around the world and the limitations on travel and gatherings that were set in place to prevent the spread.
Although this is a difficult decision to make and the thought of replanning the big day you’ve already worked so hard on could feel very overwhelming, you’ll be able to handle it. Rather than panicking, you should plan.
Wedding Day Rescheduling Tips
Freeze Your Custom Orders
In case you are postponing within 10 weeks of your scheduled nuptials, get in touch with your florist and stationary designer right away; ask the designer to cancel the printing on everything that has your wedding date on it. You should also ask the florist to stop placing orders for fresh blooms.
You should also call your wedding venue to determine what future dates are available. It’s crucial to be open to Fridays, Sundays, as well as off-peak months. In case you are planning a destination wedding, you might not want to pick out a new date immediately. Instead. Wait until you’ve got more information regarding how international travel would be affected over the following months.
If you are planning to hold your wedding ceremony and reception at a wedding venue in Myrtle Beach and another site for the gathering, you might find it difficult to search for shared availability. In case there is not a date that would work for both wedding venues, you should consider having the ceremony and reception on two different dates or one single wedding venue like The Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro.
Prioritize Your Vendors
If you already have a new date in mind for your wedding, talk to your day of vendors so they can confirm their availability, beginning with your official photographer. Most of the florists, rental companies, linen vendors, lighting designers, and bakeries could take care of multiple events on the exact same day and that is why you should be able to accommodate your schedule changes. However, if there is any one vendor in this group you cannot think of getting married without, get in touch with them early.
As for other key vendors that cold only take a single event each day, if not every weekend, that will be your DJ, band, or videographer. Tell these experts about your new date as soon as you can.
Get It In Writing
Once you narrow down your new wedding date with your vendors and your wedding venue Myrtle Beach, be sure to confirm these changes in writing. Ask for a contract addendum right away or perhaps other written guarantee that they’re at the very least holding the date for you, if not totally securing it.
Inform Your Guests
You should tell your guests that you are postponing your wedding; a lot of people may have booked a hotel or planned travel already. The best thing you can do is to send a short email to family and friends to always keep them in the loop. When you have a confirmed date, you can send the announcement about the postponement in the mail.
Find Your Wedding Dress
Don’t forget to find out who has your wedding dress. If it is with your seamstress, you should let her know that you are moving your wedding date and would be postponing the alterations to your wedding dress.
Send Your Checks
If you postpone your wedding, you should put off the official due date for the final payments. Couples are encouraged to pay all that they can based on the original schedule. This will help your vendors remain afloat during these trying times.
