Should I Postpone my Wedding – Things to Consider

The latest news and advice in regards to Non-Essential Event Bans is devastating to all couples who are leading up to their wedding day. Should I postpone my wedding after months and months of planning, decision making, budgeting and excitement? Many are finding themselves wondering whether they should go ahead with their day, push it back to a later date or unfortunately cancel the whole thing.

If you are one of the unlucky couples caught up in this and not sure whether you should have your wedding postponed, we have compiled a short list of items to consider before making up your mind.


Postpone, Don’t Cancel

The biggest message currently being sent out across the Wedding and Events industry is to Postpone, Don’t Cancel. All of us in the industry love what we do and take great pleasure in being able to help create your dream vision for the day, so it breaks our hearts to see couples choosing to cancel their entire wedding due to the current situation.

Before making any big decisions be sure to chat with your venue and suppliers on what your options are for postponing your wedding date as opposed to cancelling it completely, as most companies are currently extending their Terms & Conditions for you to put your day on hold for now rather than forfeiting any deposits already paid.

With most of the ground work and big decisions on colours, centrepieces, seating options etc already made, we can easily put your entire Quote and Concept on hold for now whether you have confirmed or not, and then once a new date has been confirmed can pick-up where we left off with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Our team of Stylists are available to chat through your options and ideas with you before you make the final call.

Say ‘I Do’ Now, Party Later

Did you choose your wedding date because it has a special meaning to you? Perhaps it’s an anniversary of the first day you met, your parents wedding anniversary etc. Perhaps you have waited long enough and can’t bear the thought of waiting any longer to say ‘I Do’.

If the idea of postponing until a later date doesn’t appeal to you perhaps you could consider an intimate ceremony and celebration between just the two of you.

Spend a romantic day together by having a small ceremony at your house, in the park, at the beach or at a secluded bush retreat tucked away from the world. Imagine spending your wedding day just the two of you with your own private Bohemian styled picnic in the bush or canopy of twinkling lights in your very own backyard?

Start your married life together just the two of you, and then later on hold the big bash so all your friends and family can celebrate together.

Seasonal Changes

Were you dreaming of an Autumn wedding? With warm, natural colours and textures, autumnal florals and cool, starry nights? Recreating this aesthetic in the middle of November might be probably won’t have the same feel as it would have in April or May.

When choosing what date to postpone until keep in mind the changes of the season and how this might impact your plans for your day. Things to reconsider are the indoor/outdoor set-up at your venue, seasonal availability of your preferred florals, colours and styles to suit the season etc.


Our expert team of Stylists are happy to suggest and discuss ways in which we can rework any of your original ideas to better fit with your new date and ensure that whenever your big day ends up being it will still be as special and wonderful as you had always hoped for.

We are here to help with any further queries you may have regarding wedding styling or hiring.
