Undoing a Wedding: What To Do If You Call It Off. We Can Help!!!

This is a subject no one talks about.  How to undo your wedding.  You might feel like an outcast, like you are the only one who needs to read this but you're not!  Trust me.

People break-off their engagements much more than you would ever expect.  Depending on how far along in the planning process you've gotten, will determine how much unraveling needs to be done.  Here are some tips on how to get the job done:

  1. Make good use of your family and friends.  Split tasks up between your bridal party and other loved ones.  They will be more than willing to help.
  2. Take everything one step at a time.  Nothing can get done all at once, even though you wish it could.  Divide and conquer the tasks.
  3. Make sure to assign your ex and his family responsibilities as well; especially if the break-off was mutual.
  4. Although this may be the last thing you want to do, contact your guests, event venue, and bridal salon as soon as possible.  Giving them advanced notice will reduce the amount of cancellation fees or charges that apply for discontinuing their services.  Your guests will appreciate the quick notice, especially if they are coming from out of town.
  5. There are professionals out there to help you!  This process can be painful, having a professional event canceler can make the whole experience a lot easier.  Hiring some one will leave you with time to get your life back to normal.  You can contact Lindsey L. Riggin, for some professional help.  She started her own event cancellation company after she had to cancel her own wedding.


Remember you are not alone.  Although the world might seem like it's crashing down, time will heal all wounds.  There are new and exciting people, places, and opportunities in your future.  Get excited for a new beginning and a fresh start at life!

  • This is a great post! I imagine that people in this situation feel extremely alone and are desperate for help and resources. Better to undo a wedding than a marriage.

    By the way, the picture of the bride running down the road is so compelling.

  • Must be so hard to have to cancel a wedding so hopefully a professional can soften the blow. Glad she turned her own heartache into a way to help others avoid further heartache.

  • My heart goes out to anyone in this situation. When there's trouble deciding what to cancel or who will pay, couples can turn to a wedding mediator to get thorough an emotionally draining experience.
