Welcome back to part two of our series on how to postpone or cancel your wedding. We’ve linked you back to part one of this series where we discussed the format you should use when dealing this situation when the invites have or have not been sent out. We urge you take a moment and read it before moving on.

In part two, we will be talking about a few ways that should help you personally deal and cope with having to go through this. That being said, if you are in need of affordable wedding catering Raleigh NC services, please call Catering by Design. We offer free menu tastings!

Coping with Postponing or Canceling Your Wedding

People have to postpone and cancel weddings for all sorts of reasons. Some may be due to personal health, a death in the family, financial crisis, legal troubles, too much fighting with your partner, or other, much more personal reasons. Whatever the case may be, you are going to be in a position where you’re going to get asked a lot of questions, furthermore, you’ll also have to deal with the emotional consequences.

There is no written rule saying that you have to explain yourself or what’s happening, but you should be prepared to talk about it. We suggest that you develop your own short “elevator speech” that you can use in all situations. This will help you always be prepared as well as verbally communicate your boundaries. You do not have to get too personal, and if the person pushes, just repeat your elevator speech and move on.


Coping will be different for everyone as each situation unique. However, some might feel heartbroken, embarrassed, depressed, angry, or have other negative emotions. Don’t be afraid to talk to someone if things get too bad. Lean on those that are closest to you, to get you through the tough times.

If the wedding has been canceled, with no hope of reuniting, then plan on doing something nice for yourself. Reconnect with your inner-self and keep company that will lift your spirits.
