Tuesday 24th March 2020
You, my clients, are extremely important to me and I want to let you know that you have my full support and understanding, as regards making changes to your wedding day if you feel the need to. With everything so uncertain right now, it’s very difficult to know what the right decision is. As you can imagine, I am still fielding lots of calls and emails from worried clients whose events and celebrations are due to be taking place in the coming weeks and months. I want to be as understanding and as flexible as I can possibly with all clients. Like you, I’m trying my best to stay super positive too, we will get through this! So, I thought I’d update you on my thoughts.
Following the government broadcast from Monday 23rd March 2020, all weddings are being cancelled for the immediate future. Almost all wedding venues and Registrars seem to be advising their clients to choose a new date later this year or next year to reschedule their weddings. They are being super flexible, remember we’re all in this together.
If you are thinking of choosing a new date, I’ll happily transfer your terms and any monies paid over to the new date. Positive thoughts, your wedding will still be amazing whichever date you choose, even if it’s a weekday. Please try to liaise with your venue and ALL of your existing suppliers, so that we can ALL make the new date, I, like many of the suppliers who play a huge part of your day would be devastated if you chose a future date which I wasn’t able to be part of. If I’m not able to make the new date, your booking fee is non-refundable.
As very little help has been forthcoming from our government so far for self employed people like me, I’m just as worried about the coming months, as my income will be hit drastically; it’s a really uncertain time for me too. I’m hoping this will change in the next few days.
What will happen if I become ill, or my family have to go into self-quarantine? Luckily, I have the most loveliest group of DJ friends, who have been providing amazing support to each other. So rest assured, if this did happen, I have a huge network of DJs who would be ready and willing to step in and do an equally amazing job for you.
Before you make any decisions, please check your wedding insurance policy wording, and remember that if you postpone your wedding to a different date, you may need to inform the insurer of the changes and that it may lead to a fee or even a change in the cover by the insurer.
A little lengthy, but I do hope it puts your mind at rest a little. Get in touch if you need to chat about anything at all. Stay healthy you lovely lot, but most of all, keep those beautiful minds of yours healthy by staying positive.
Look after each other.
