1. Don't Do This Alone
Have those that know your vision best (whether that be a wedding planner, sibling, MOH, or even your mom) help you take the next steps. It can feel overwhelming and exhausting trying to tackle a change in plans and vision if you go about it alone.
Don't be afraid to delegate tasks to those who are willing to help. Let your MOH or bridesmaids help you call family and friends letting them know of changes in plans.
2. Be Open
As hard as it is to hear this – be open to whatever options are available. Whether that's a change in location, choosing a different vendor because they're already booked on your date, or going a completely different route than you'd originally planned.
Many vendors will be more than willing to work with you if you explain your situation. They know it's not your fault and they want you to have your cake and eat it too!
3. Postpone, Don't Cancel
As easy as it might be to just throw your hands in the air and throw away all your hard work – don't. If you choose to elope or have a smaller ceremony, nothing is stopping you from having a BIG party down the road!
If you already had plans for a wedding, opt to push the date and have a reception celebration with everyone who couldn't make it for round one.
You can still have the day of your dreams with the people you love most!
4. Remember The Purpose
It's hard to see all your hard work and planning being pulled out from underneath you. You've worked so hard, only to have to change and alter your plans.
No matter where you say, "I do," or what happens at the end of your wedding day, we want you to remember one thing: the purpose of why you got married in the first place. The person who you're marrying loves you VERY much and at the end of the day – it's about you two.
If you're both happily married and you're able to finally start your lives together – what a dream-come-true! Your wedding day is one day, but your marriage is a lifetime of love and growing with your special someone.
