So you’re planning your wedding day and it’s all going well. You’ve got a venue, dress, and everything is in order. Then, reality hits you. You realize that a wedding is just not what you want anymore.
I have been in the wedding planning business for a while now, and it’s not just a job for me. I love what I do, and it’s an honor to share in the excitement of a couple as they go from engaged to married. I want all my brides to have their magic walk down the aisle and say “I do,” but sometimes a wedding just isn’t meant to be.
It’s Not the End of the World
I’m writing this blog post out of experience, to reassure you that canceling your wedding is nothing to feel guilty about. I will always support your decision to cancel your big day. It doesn’t matter how much planning you’ve done for your wedding – the day before, last month, or anytime in between! If this isn’t what you want to do with your life anymore, then I will be the first to tell you to cancel.
A wedding cancellation isn’t the end of the world. You may even feel immense relief that you don’t have to go through with it. In fact, canceling your wedding could be the best decision you’ve ever made!
Don’t Blame Yourself
If you are the one to make this call, do not make yourself out to be a villain. A little nervousness before a wedding isn’t unreasonable, but serious doubts about whether you want to go through with a wedding should never be ignored. Remember, this is your life! You have every right to make this decision.
It’s easy to see why your partner would be sad about this choice. Be honest and tell them what you’re feeling – just try not to get into a fight about it! Don’t let someone bully or manipulate you into going through with a wedding that you don’t want. If your partner is not supportive of canceling your wedding, then this may be the end of the relationship. After all, part of love means respecting your partner’s autonomy and even setting them free.
Have you had any pushback from your friends or family about your choice? A true friend wouldn’t fight your decision, but simply support you. It’s okay for a loved one to be sad about the wedding being canceled, but don’t let it affect your decision-making process! If this is what you really want, then listen to your heart and make the decision that’s right for you.
The Future is Bright and I’m Here For You!
As your wedding planner, I will do everything I can to salvage a cancelled wedding. Whether that means coordinating with vendors to postpone or negotiate a partial or full refund. I will do everything I can to assist you through this emotional process.
So, you’ve made your decision – what’s next? Cancelling your wedding may open opportunities in your near future you could have never dreamed of. Sometimes what seems like the end is really just another beginning. Don’t look back at your cancelled wedding with guilt or sadness but excitement for all of life’s adventures ahead!
I hope I’ve reassured you and given you some peace about cancelling your wedding day plans. Any lost expenses will pale in comparison to the future costs of a failed relationship. My goal as a professional is not only planning perfect weddings, but supporting relationships that will stand the test of time. Trust me, I do not want to send a bride down the aisle if she is not ready for this huge commitment!
