I wouldn’t want to plan a wedding with all the uncertainty. Booking vendors right now means putting down payments on vendors who could possibly go out of business in all this mess. Then you’re out a vendor and the money.

If I were to plan something for 2021, I’d probably make it very small/intimate and something I could plan in say 3-6 months instead of a year+ out.

That’s a really hard decision. I think I’d go with 2021 rather than 2022 (wow 2022 feels like a weirdly futuristic date to type) because it would make it more likely your grandparents could attend. It sounds like the deposits aren’t so bad. Yeah, you may have some scheduling conflicts as far as guests planning to attend other weddings, but I don’t think that will happen too much.

Taylor11 :   I wouldn’t be booking a venue at all at this point. Really you have no idea when they will available and if it will even be possible as a lot of wedding companies are going to lose a lot of money during this time.

Im only recently engaged and don’t have a set date at this point (thankfully right now), but the only wedding I’d be planning right now if I couldn’t wait would be on private property with immediate family. I definitely wouldn’t be asking grandparents to travel.

I’d plan something very small for 2021. Seems like most COVID brides are rescheduling for fall of 2020 or early 2021

2022 will probably be a popular year also because of the repetitive numbers
