Postponing your wedding
The uncertainty surrounding the restrictions due to Covid-19 has meant that lots of couples are postponing their wedding. I’ve had the majority of my wedding bookings for 2020 postponed until 2021. However, with the ever changing rules, more couples are deciding to change their spring 2021 wedding dates. This is completely understandable, as the rules change so quickly. It’s not certain whether the restrictions will be lifted in time for early spring weddings. Many are deciding to either have their wedding later on in 2021, either in the summer or they’re deciding to move the date to 2022. So what do you need to do if you are thinking about postponing your wedding?
Postpone or cancel?
Some brides feel like they are just not going to get the day that they planned for and don’t want to go ahead with all the restrictions. However, it’s recommended to postpone rather than cancel. Hopefully, weddings will be back to come kind of normality by summer next year.
Venue & suppliers
The first port of call when you’re discussing rescheduling your wedding should be your venue. They will be able to give you an idea on availability for alternative dates.
You also need to contact suppliers to find out their availability for your new date. It may be the case that some suppliers are already booked for the new date. You have to keep communicating with your suppliers in order to make new arrangements. They may be able to recommend an alternative supplier if they can’t accommodate you.
Your wedding videography package prices will remain the same for 2021 and 2022 so that couples aren’t hit with unexpected costs. You can find all of our wedding film prices on the website.
I offer a wedding video package that includes the filming of arrivals and venue details, the full ceremony and filming of the photoshoot after the ceremony for £450. I’ve always offered this package but it’s become a lot more popular in recent months. This is a good option with the restrictions. You can find out more about it on the Prices page and on the blog.
Keep in touch
Keep your suppliers and guests in the loop with any changes of plans. That way, everyone knows what to expect and can even help you. It can be a really stressful time when things don’t go as planned. I’m happy to chat about any potential changes of wedding dates so get in touch if you’re considering postponing your wedding.
