If you’re in the difficult position of having to uninvite someone to your wedding, this blog is for you!
These are tricky old times for the world of weddings, aren’t they? There’s no doubt that COVID-19 has had a significant impact on couples who were planning a 2020 wedding and it’s safe to say that by now, most couples have either postponed their 2020 wedding or have decided to proceed with their wedding plans on a much smaller scale.
At Weddings by One Curious Dream, we are very much in the former category, having postponed all of our 2020 weddings to 2021 and beyond. However, we’ve given lots of wedding planning advice to couples who have needed a little expert wedding planning support and are pleased to see that some couples have decided to proceed with a smaller wedding this year, followed by a much larger wedding celebration next year. Hooray!
Still, this decision in itself presents several challenges, and perhaps the toughest has been how to decrease their wedding guest numbers to make a wedding work within the latest government guidelines. I certainly know that uninviting somebody to your wedding can cause a great deal of heartache and stress, so I can certainly feel for you if you’re in this position.
Now, we were going to write an entire wedding blog piece about this very subject, but the fantastic wedding experts over at the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners have already done the hard work for us! So, today, we’d like to share this fantastic wedding blog piece with you about how to uninvite somebody to your wedding.
Whilst this blog pieces offers a plethora of practical wedding advice and useful tips, we know that cutting down your wedding guest list will still be an incredibly challenging process to go through. Most couples imagine their wedding day to be surrounded by their nearest and dearest, so to decrease the guest list is already a stressful experience.
What I would say, is that given the current state of the world, your loved ones will understand your decision, even though they will, of course, be sad not to share your special day with you. However, there are lots of ways that you can share this moment and just think, if you do decide to have a larger wedding celebration in the future, you’re going to have something even more special to look forward too!
I’ll hand over the reins to the UKAWP for now, pop on over to their wedding blog to read the full article here.
