"The club can confirm plans for a civic ceremony to celebrate the historic FA Cup Final victory have to be put on hold until the situation in the league becomes clear," said a club statement.
"An announcement will be made as soon as any further news is available.
"The club would like to take this opportunity of thanking the incredible support shown by all the fans who travelled to Wembley, plus the great support of Wigan Council and the people of Wigan and we will keep everyone informed."
Wigan Chairman Dave Whelan says his dream has come true as Wigan won the FA Cup.
"I thought we would get Man City in the final and win 1-0," he said on ITV Sport. "The dream has come true. I'm repaid for 1960 when I broke my leg and we lost the match.
"We've now got to stay in the Premier League, we've done everything then. This is going to lift the lads so much."
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has dismissed reports that he will be replaced as boss in the close season as "rubbish"
Mancini was speaking to ITV Sport after his team lost the FA Cup final to Wigan 1-0.
Roberto Martinez has spoken of the 'incredible' moment of winning the FA Cup.
He told ITV Sport:
"It's an incredible moment. At half-time we were all really down as we thought we had played really well in the first half.
"There was a real feeling of maybe we had wasted our opportunity, but this group of players keep on fighting.
"I was thinking about extra-time and how to use the extra man advantage. It was incredible seeing the goal going in."
