Therefore, think carefully and make the decision jointly with your partner and your family members.

Choose a new date: – Choosing a new date may or may not
be an easy task. Check-in with our partner, your family members, your wedding
party and your vendor and come out with a suitable date.
Managing your vendors: – Check out the contract you have with
your vendors. Discuss possible alternative dates, whether there will be an
additional cost for postponing or cancelling. Ask about their policies.
Contact your Wedding Planner: – If you have a wedding Planner,
contact them to let them know of your decision and start tackling the to-do list proactively
Confirm the new date with your venue and all the other
suppliers who are able to work for the new date with a clear overview of financial ramifications (whether any
additional costs will be incurred or if all money paid/due is transferrable).
Review the new payment schedule with them, and make sure to get agreements in
writing. For any suppliers who are not able to work for the new date,
review the cancellation policies and look for other new suppliers.
Send out Change the Dates cards: – Once you have decided on the new
date, contact your guests to let them know of the new plan and what your
revised date will be. Don’t
worry about upsetting people; some may be disappointed for you, but the
majority of your guests will actually be relieved. Just communicate candidly what you know and give them details
about how they can stay up-to-date on the information in the future.
Go through your plans again: – Sit with your wedding planner and
discuss all the details. Postponing your wedding means you will have to
consider the season of your new wedding date, the style of your day may change
