Changing Your Wedding Date - Tips and Ideas from Minted!

Good morning, Maharanis! We hope you are staying safe and healthy. Currently, we are facing unprecedented times that have affected the global wedding industry, making tons of brides concerned about what is going to happen with their wedding celebration. Good news, love is not canceled, but your wedding celebration may just be postponed.  We are heartbroken for the brides who were so close to taking that walk down the aisle and due to the spread of COVID-19, plans have to wait a bit. While other brides had just announced their engagement and are now anxiously waiting to share the date of their big day with their family and closest friends.

If you are one of those Maharanis that is seeking help and tips on how to handle this unexpected change of plans, you've come to the right place! Our good friends from Minted Weddings have shared a couple of exciting ideas with us, and we loved them so much that we thought of sharing them with you. So, get your pen and notebooks to take some notes of these incredible tips and ideas!

Event Change Cards are a great way to keep your friends & family up to date on your wedding plans!

The awesome team at Minted Weddings just launched a new product offering to help couples send out official date change communications, and we absolutely loved this idea, but above all, their gorgeous designs. The best thing about this service is that you can take advantage of it even if you already sent out a date change email or text, as this will take your communication one step further. 

Here are some tips:

○ Keep the wording brief and to the point.
○ Choose a card design that matches the look and feel of the original invitation to keep all of your wedding stationery coordinated and cohesive.
○ Keep the wording upbeating, in light of all that is going on.

If you are rescheduling, but you don't have a new date yet:

○ "Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are changing our wedding date. New details to come soon."
○ "In light of current events, we are changing our date so we can celebrate safely. New details to come soon."
○ "In light of current events, we are postponing our wedding. New wedding date to come soon."
○ "We have decided to postpone our wedding to a future date. Please stay tuned for details."
○ "It's still happening! ...Just at a later date. New wedding date to come soon!"
○ "Social distancing just isn't our thing. New wedding date to come soon so we can party properly!"

If you are rescheduling and already have a new wedding date: 

○ "Please mark your calendars with our new wedding date! We can't wait to celebrate with you."
○ "Save our NEW date!"
○ "We changed our date and can't wait to celebrate!"
○ "Don't dust off your dancing shoes yet! Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are now getting married on [insert date]."

Remember, if you're changing your wedding date, it's important to let your guests know ASAP! So, make sure to call your family members and wedding-party members directly so they can update their calendars.

We hope the information above helps you coordinate all the necessary details to make your dream wedding celebration come to life. After all, anything is possible as long as you have the right allies by your side! And remember, love always prevails!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My proposal was absolutely the cutest thing!  Since I am originally from Tampa, Florida (I am a true Floridian and love my state), Jeff knew it would be important for me to get engaged at home.  In addition to that he chose one of my favorite locations (which is the beach) with our most precious little Nico.  I could tell that he was acting a bit nervous when we were walking on the beach and it become more apparent when he had to take random pictures near a lifeguard stand until he got on one knee.  Perfect day!
 
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
To start the planning process, I did a lot of research online.  This was a very busy time in my life as I was completing my last year in fellowship so I tried to do as much as possible during random times.  In regard to our venue, we had a number on our list but as soon as we walked into the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, PA (Hamilton Roof Top Garden) we knew that it was the perfect venue for us!  It had an amazing view:)  I am also so pleased to have had the opportunity to work with amazing people that made the wedding so special.  I cannot thank enough Beauty by Archana/Jassi for my beautiful hair, Mandaps by Dhoom for a beautiful set up for the ceremony, and DJ Ravi Jackson for the can't miss Baraat.  In addition, my wedding photos (Twisted Oaks) and videographer (Fiore Films) are the best in the business.  We had the Bachelor Boy's for our band and it was such a fun time on the dance floor and we highly recommend them for any wedding!!!!  Thank you Jennifer at Kaleidoscope Weddings for coordinating everything on such a busy day.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
For my wedding, I decided to have a traditional South Indian Sari for the Indian ceremony and then a white dress for the reception.  Since I was planning my wedding during a busy time in my professional career, I was lucky that my dad and youngest brother were able to go to India and pick out the fabric and colors (gold, red and green) and then tailor them according the bridal party's specifications.  Since the wedding was in the summer, I really wanted to have a good color scheme for my bridesmaids and groomsmen.  The color that I ended up choosing was glacier and I think everyone looked amazing. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our wedding guests absolutely loved the Baratt and the Indian ceremony.  Since it was a fusion wedding, some of the guests had never been to a wedding with Indian components before.  They had an amazing experience witnessing the prayers and rituals that were performed for the ceremony in addition to seeing a fun filled Baraat with plenty of dancing!!  In addition, we had Alicia Finger for Live Event Painting.  During the ceremony, she depicted us during our first dance and it was absolutely amazing.  It captured us perfectly and the guests enjoyed watching her and the painting unfold!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I would say the most special moment in the wedding was having my mom and dad walk me down that aisle towards the Mandap.  I know this is one of my dad's proudest moments and it made me so happy to see the joy in his eyes (and my mom as well) throughout the night.  It was very important for him to have an Indian component to the wedding in addition to having my bothers involved.  A family moment that will never be forgotten.  The other special thing for me was having a table dedicated to past loved ones on both sides of the family.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The best words that I can say is to cherish your wedding day because it will go by so fast (with a blink of the eye).  Enjoy the moment with your family and friends because this is truly a celebration for all involved.

We've arrived to the end of this fabulous celebration, but don't forget to join us tomorrow for more! Same place, same time.
