First and foremost we hope that you and yours are well and managing to keep out of harm’s way. We wanted to bring you up to speed with what we are doing with regards to helping you reschedule your wedding day. Be rest assured that we are bending over backwards to help and accommodate postponed events wherever possible at no extra cost to our clients.
These are unprecedented times that we find ourselves in and due to the Government’s restrictions on social gatherings throughout 2020 and the continuance into 2021 we’ve had to deal with over 100 requests to either postpone or cancel. Sadly there are occasions where we are unavailable on the requested rescheduled date and we are working with each client and in line with the CMA guidelines to come us with an amicable solution.
What’s our best advice?
From the experience that we’ve had to-date, our best advice when thinking about rescheduling your wedding day is to get several alternative postponement dates from the key suppliers (venue and registrar). That way you’re going to have a better chance of finding a date that ALL suppliers will be available on. The downside is that you’re going to have to act quick as the venue will be reluctant to hold several dates for you for a long period of time.
Take the Stress out of rescheduling your suppliers.
we are recommending to all of our clients to make use of a website called doodle.com (and no, we’re not on commission or shareholders ;-). It will reduce the stress of trying to find a common date between all your suppliers and it’s free to use! Once you have alternative dates from your venue and key suppliers such as the registrar, then just go to doodle.com and click on the top right button ‘Create a Doodle’Step 1 of 4 enter the title ie “Pete & Philips rescheduled wedding” and click continue.Step 2 of 4 click the ‘month’ view and select all the available dates that your venue has to offer then click continue.
Step 3 of 4 poll setting- don’t need to do anything here, just click continue
Step 4 of 4 enter your name and email address and click Finish. (you’ll be sent an email confirming the poll and a link to view the poll).
On the ‘Invite Participants’ page click the ‘link’ button, copy the link and send it to your suppliers. They can enter their name/company name and check the available dates. You’ll soon be able to see which is the best date for everyone!
