Successfully Postponed Your Wedding? Now What?
Firstly, my heart goes out to you for having to postpone your wedding. Now that your vendors and guests have been transitioned to the new date, what is there to do?
Keep your excitement up by working through these often put-off wedding items.
Create Your Family Photo List
Other than the wedding day timeline, this is one of the other most critical documents on a wedding day. The family photo list allows for structure, efficiency and ensures that no photo combinations get missed. I often budget 30 minutes for family photos. However, if photos go over the 30 minutes it could affect the rest of your timeline.
This list is shared with the planner, photographer and all parties involved. That way Grandma Sue doesn’t wander off when she’s supposed to have her photo taken.
Either the planner or photographer will call out the different family member combinations.
Create Your Music Must-Play / Do-Not Play List for the DJ
Most DJs are great at reading a crowd and will play what guests react well to. However, there are some dividing songs such as the Chicken Dance, YMCA or Macarena that either couples love or hate.
Create a list of songs you wish for the DJ to play and songs / genres you don’t. This will ensure your favorite songs are played during the cocktail hour, dinner and reception.
Write Your Vows
You would be shocked to find out how many couples save writing their vows until the last minute. With the postponement of your wedding you now have time to start chipping away at your vows.
Start with a general outline, then over time start to fill in details.
Write Your Thank You Speech
Like vows, the thank you speech is often written at the last minute. Start by outlining the people you wish to thank, then add a more robust description about what you wish to say.
