If you need to reschedule a wedding as a result of COVID-19, your top priorities should be as follows:

  • The venue. Your number one priority is to contact the venue. Ask if there are any dates available later this year, or even next, and if any deposit paid can be put towards the new date.
  • The photographer is your next port of call. Under the current circumstances, all wedding suppliers should be supportive, so get in touch to see if they can offer any flexibility. Don’t delay as they may book up well in advance.
  • The dress. As clothing stores are also closed at the moment, your wedding dress supplier should agree to move your fitting to whenever it’s required. They should also be able to hold the gown for as long as necessary.
  • Flowers. Bear in mind, if you were planning a summer wedding that’s become a winter one, you might want to begin rethinking your floral choices.
Communication is key. Get in touch with suppliers, and if they really can’t help with the new date start search for good alternatives. I have a preferred list of suppliers and we’re here to help.
