Postpone Your Wedding
March 17, 2020
Postponing your wedding isn’t ideal, but it’s sometimes necessary.
Selecting a wedding date is one of the very first steps in the planning process, but that doesn’t mean it’s entirely set in stone. In fact, sometimes postponing the date is necessary. Whether you and your future spouse are dealing with the unexpected or simply choosing to enjoy the engagement stage a little while longer, postponement can be the right decision for a variety of reasons. If you are considering postponing, talk with your vendors to see if it’s possible to get out of contracts or if you can change the date. Depending on the circumstances, there may be some flexibility.
Amidst the current coronavirus outbreak, many couples are facing the difficult decision of postponing their wedding. Whether a local event is planned or one abroad, risks associated with large gatherings, particularly for elderly guests or those traveling from out of town, are a significant consideration. As couples begin to navigate their options during a time of uncertainty, it’s important to maintain open communication with your wedding planner, vendors and guests.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is recommending cancelling any events in the next eight weeks with 50 or more people. Those guidelines have left many couples scrambling and pondering the same questions. To help couples navigate, the wedding website, The Knot, is offering a hotline (833-998-2865 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
