We know that for some, what is touted as THE BIGGEST day of your life, your wedding
Postponing your wedding due to the Coronavirus pandemic will be one of the most disappointing decisions you will have to make. Unfortunately, these unforeseen circumstances have caused many brides and grooms to postpone, and in some cases, reorganise their big day, to a later date.
In this video, Nikki who is also Founder of Bermuda Bride talks to Joanne Grobbelaar about what you CAN do in the current climate if you have to postpone your wedding. She gives invaluable tips about the important things to consider so you can coordinate every aspect and still have the wedding you dreamed of.
In this video, Nikki shares three actions that you can take right now to help you reorganise your wedding for another date:
Manage your mindset
Of course, you’ll naturally feel frustrated and downhearted by rescheduling and replanning an event that has required as much headspace and time. But it’s important to get things into perspective. LOVE IS NOT CANCELLED. We are simply postponing the event. The bigger picture is that two people who love each other are getting married. So as long as we can accomplish that, then the timing becomes irrelevant.
Check in with your important guests
When it comes to choosing a new day, check in with all those guests you couldn’t imagine your special day without. Consult with your venue and important wedding vendors too so you can plan your new day around their availability. In this video, Nikki shares some innovative ways that will allow you think outside the box and move your wedding to a date that works well for everyone involved.
What are the ‘non-negotiables’?
The third important tip is identifying what are you NOT prepared to change. For some it might be the photography, others it may be the food and drink and for some it’s the music. Good wedding vendors are likely to be booked up for 2021 and even 2022, so by identifying your non-negotiables, you can decide which vendors you are prepared to replace if they are already booked for the new wedding date.
