How To Postpone A Wedding – A Step By Step Guide

LAST UPDATE: 23/03/20 9.30pm

It was never going to be easy to write a post called “How To Postpone A Wedding”. Especially on a wedding site where we champion hosting Your Day, Your Way. But sometimes situations arise which are not under our control. I’m sure you’re exhausted from reading the words ‘global pandemic’. Whilst we’ve all been monitoring the situation closely it seems that for some of you, the time has come to do the most difficult, yet socially responsible thing and postpone your wedding day. Even if you feel deep down that it’s the right thing to do, that doesn’t make it easy. The heartbreaking disappointment you feel is entirely normal. Yes, we all want to keep our loved ones safe and do our bit for society, but the reality is that you’ve likely been planning and looking forward to your day for a long time. And it’s ok to feel a swell of emotions that it may not go ahead exactly how and when you initially wanted. There are scores of couples currently going through and talking about this on the Rock My Wedding Forum. So if you need a place to be supported by like-minded people then please join us. 

What you’ll find below is a step by step guide, explaining what you need to do and when to postpone a wedding. This will hopefully offer a bit of assistance in what can be a very disorientating and emotional time.
