When you invited your guests to your wedding, you did it very personally through a printed invite, a social media event calendar, or a meet-up. Now that you have decided to postpone your wedding, your guests will appreciate it very much if they hear the news from you instead from any of your vendors. No need to re-send a new invitation for the new date. Just notify them and make an effort to connect with them as a couple.
Revisit Supplier Contracts
Now is the time to check your existing vendor contracts from your file and study the clause for postponement or cancellation. Talk to your supplier and discuss how you can form a new agreement now that both parties are faced with this situation. Write the new agreement down to safeguard both parties and continue to work together towards your new wedding date. Remember, listen to your vendors and be considerate to them too because they are affected by the situation.
