First and foremost you will have to call the vendors involved and let them know about your decision of postponement. You can even immediately speak to them about the budget of the new dates and requirements.

Our vendor partners might face difficulties and they might be required to make some unforeseen changes in their business plans for the coming months. This will require a backup plan to stay strong.
