Things To Do When The Marriage Has Been Called Off
‘It’s Off’!’ Those are the words which every bride, groom and, especially, their parents dread! They probably won’t be heard except in your nightmares or a moment of complete exhaustion after trying to squeeze just two more people into the guest list.
Sometimes, there has to be a postponement because of serious illness, natural disaster or a business commitment overseas. But, unfortunately, weddings do also get cancelled – one or the other partner lets their cold feet take them out of their cozy relationship in search of something supposedly better or someone more compatible. Sometimes based on the reports of matrimonial investigation agencies like ours, a marriage could be called off due to the negative factors that may not have gone down favourably with our clients.
I hope that you, like me, never get even close to this situation but I’m including a few suggestions which will give you a guide to keep you focused while you sort everything out. I am hoping that there will not be even a 0.1 % chance of your marriage or your ward’s marriage being cancelled but in the event it does, I would recommend that you read the rest of this article to be well prepared for any consequence.
Notify Suppliers About Cancelled Marriage
You should phone your suppliers and the venues you booked to minimize the amount you will still owe them. Go over and talk to them personally and explain the calamity. Don’t try to work that out over the phone. Don’t expect to get much back though. It may depend whether the venue or supplier can fill your booking with another booking. You may be able to get the store or dressmaker to sell your wedding clothes and give you something back from the sale price. Otherwise, you can always sell it privately.
Notify the Travel Agents About the Cancelled Wedding Trips
Be sure to contact airlines or cruises and your accommodation if you had booked an overseas honeymoon.
Notify Your Guests About the Cancellation
If the wedding date is just a couple of weeks away, email or phone people that don’t live close by. Then, follow up with a short, printed note because some people don’t read their emails regularly and emails sometimes just get lost. If a sympathetic and reliable family member offers to make some or all of the calls and send the emails for you, it will do much to reduce the load on your shoulders for at least a little while.
Return All Presents
You must return them all. That will be a hassle and expense but it is the right thing to do. Whether you return the engagement ring depends on you. I would never throw in into a crusher but I know many of my friends say that they would in those circumstances. I’d rather sell it and use the proceeds to treat myself to a massage or something else that would help to relieve the emotional pressure.
In the meanwhile if there is a wedding in your family or if its your own big day ahead this year, I wish you lots of love, luck (you will need it!), wisdom and good health to make your marriage successful and last for more than a lifetime!
