You’ve set your date, sent out the invitations, booked your vendors… but now due to unforeseen circumstances, your day is in jeopardy. No one wants to reschedule, postpone, or even cancel their special day, but here are some tips to help you face this challenging change of plans.
Calling off the wedding may not be talked about much, but it does happen. And yes, it’s hard, but not impossible to get through. Building a support system of dear friends and family is one step to helping you confront this grief and begin to untie your wedding plans.
Relationship coach and founder of Lovistics, Natalia Juarez, shares an article titled, The Ultimate Guide to Calling Off Your Wedding or Engagement. In summary, she focuses on three steps: self care, creating an action plan, and a long-term healing plan.
Another facet of a cancelled wedding involves the financial effects. How to Unplan Your Wedding by Katrina Clarke breaks down the various pieces of a wedding and offers advice about how to handle specifics such as your dress, the photographer, and the gifts.
Overall, whether you’re postponing or canceling, remember that you are not the first bride or groom to face this. Surround yourself with friends and family who will not only let you cry on their shoulder or pour you another glass of wine, but also help you make a game plan to tackle the next steps.
