Here comes the… COVID-19
You picked a date, booked the DJ and planned the wedding of your dreams… and then the CoronaVirus Pandemic hit. You’re not alone. We’ve chatted with tons of brides who are scrambling to find a way to postpone, reschedule and even completely re-think their wedding day in the last few months. We are creating this series of blog entries to help our brides through this wedding season.
How to make the best of Plan B
While rescheduling & rethinking wasn’t on your original wedding to-do list, the reality is that it’s time to start talking to everyone involved in your big day. The good news is, all of you vendors are learning right alongside you & many of them will be willing to work with you to make Plan B even better than your original vision.
- Postpone, rather than Cancelling
Save that money, honey. There are a ton of benefits to rescheduling your wedding. Most of your vendors will be willing to work with you when it comes to your deposit, it allows you to support local businesses and best of all, it gives you and your guests something to look forward to.
- Talk to your venue and vendors
Reach out to your venue and ask them if they have any information on when they may be able to open back up, any new limitations they are required to have in place and what their books look like. If you have a wedding planner, don’t hesitate to reach out to them to facilitate these conversations.
At Blush, we are working with each bride to create a customized plan. We are being flexible with deposits and offering specific solutions for your wedding.
- Communicate with your guests
Let your guests know what your plan is as soon as you do. Even if you don’t have your new date locked in, let your guests know that you have chosen to postpone your wedding. Once you’ve been able to nail down the details of your wedding, send out Change the Date cards.
