Cancel V Postponing a Wedding

We are hoping that the late spring and early summer of 2021 will bring more hope and clarity for wedding ceremonies and receptions in the UK. If you and your partner are having a tussle with the venue, or other wedding suppliers, it will help to know your rights (and theirs) in this situation. It is reasonable and often the norm, for wedding services to take a booking fee/deposit when securing a date, and depending upon whether you decide to postpone,  (which is the case with the vast majority of couples) or cancel, there could be issues with both. Many couples report they have moved their venue date with too many problems, however if you don' t act quickly enough there might not be availability especially if you are planning a wedding at the weekend during peak season. 

Some services such as florists and cake makers who can deliver on the day, may be able to accommodate more than one wedding a day.  However a photographer, entertainer or hairdresser are a different matter depending on their staffing levels and your timings on the day. If you have already made these bookings and you haven't yet approached your suppliers, then we suggest you do so as soon as possible. Bear in mind that with many weddings being postponed, rather than cancelled, the date you have arranged with the venue for the ceremony and reception, might not be available for all of your services. 

You should hopefully find that many reputable wedding services will be more than happy to move your date, and should confirm this in writing. If however you have not been able to agree a new arrangement with your wedding supplier, here's how to resolve any contractual disputes. Good luck!
