The anxiety is real! Unfortunately for a lot of couples the butterflies in the stomach have been replaced with fear- yes, there's a lot of uncertainty right now, and coronavirus wedding cancellations or postponements are in order. No one is sure of the situation right now, and with the lockdowns in order, everyone seems lost. So if you're considering postponing or cancelling your wedding for now, here's what you should know.

Here's a guide which will take you through these trying times!
Step 1: Take a decision
Of course, everyone, including both the families should be on board with this one. Decide whether you want to postpone the wedding to a later month or just cancel for the time being. If you postpone, you might have to decide on a much later date, keeping in mind that it's still unknown how long this pandemic will last.
Step 2: Update everyone
So of course, once the decision has been made, everyone needs to be informed. If you have a wedding website you can update it, or the simplest, easiest idea is to send a Whatsapp message to everyone- we've designed some templates here to screenshot and send which are super easy. Or you can go ahead and type a heartfelt message to send out to everyone. Update them about your plan, you could even update your Insta or FB.
Step 3: Inform the vendors
So go ahead and inform your essential, and possibly all your vendors about your plans. If you have a date decided, you can check for their availability, and if it's working out, great. Else speak to them about what they're offering by way of postponement or cancellation policy. Most of them we are sure will be trying their level best to cope up in these times too.
Step 4: Try to be positive
We know, it sucks. You had your heart all set on a date, and now all plans have to be changed and you feel lost. Take this time to tweak plans, plan more, make your Pinterest dream wedding board (with help from WMG, of course)- or, if you want, plan a smaller, more intimate wedding later with only those who matter.
And don't forget, this too shall pass, and you'll be back to looking forward to your wedding before you realise it! So make the best of this time for some TLC!
