Rescheduling your wedding? No problem!

We teamed up with Kristen + Nicole of Well-Dressed Events to help.

Here is what the girls from Well-Dressed Events recommend for making sure your wedding is just as dreamy as you envisioned it!

1. Read through your contracts. The first thing to do is re-read your venue and vendor contracts to ensure that you know what you agreed to before discussing the topic of rescheduling of your wedding. You’ll want to be prepared with the payment terms should one of your vendors be unavailable for your new date. Keep in mind that you will likely lose any deposits, and some vendors may implement a change fee. 

 

If you purchased wedding insurance, now would be a good time to read through your plan to see if something like a global pandemic is covered.  

 

2. Contact your venue. Check in to see which dates they still have available. Try your best to be flexible—if your wedding was originally scheduled on a Saturday, be open to a Thursday, Friday or Sunday wedding. 

 

3. Reach out to vendors. Once you’ve discussed new dates with your venue, the next step is to contact your vendors. Send them the new date(s) and ask them to check their availability. Once again, patience is key here— they’re going through the exact same process with their other couples as well. 

 

If a vendor is not available, it’s okay to ask about the possibility of a refund given the situation. But it’s important to be respectful should they decline. Most are small business owners who may not have the financial flexibility to provide a refund, especially if they’ve already begun working on your wedding. Pro tip: ask if they have any recommendations for another company with a similar style and price point. More often than not, they will be happy to direct you toward someone else they know and trust.

 

4. Communicate the change to your bridal party and guests. First contact your bridal party and any other key players like parents, grandparents and siblings. Know that there is the potential that someone in your bridal party will not available for your new date. Again, flexibility is key here!

 

The best way to contact your guests is via mass email and on your wedding website. Include as much information as you can upfront (like timing/location changes or room block updates) to avoid confusion. 

 

5. Feel all the feelings. It’s absolutely okay to feel sad and angry that this is happening (in fact, it’s healthy!). But once you’ve worked through this plan and made all of the necessary changes, you should celebrate! Find a meaningful way to spend time together on your original wedding date. After all, it’s still a special day!
