  • Wedding: April 2020

I’m also April 2020 and I’m also canceling like dlyn16. I feel really thankful at having the experience of planning our wedding, it was both stressful and fun, and I generally really loved it!! However, I can’t imagine planning the whole thing again. Even if picking another date was possible (between the virus and hurricane season… who knows..?) I don’t even want to think about re-coordinating guests, vendors, and all the other details. Our goal is to have a private ceremony at my parent’s house to sign the papers, immediate family only. However, if it works out we will have the photographer and take pictures so that we get the same portraits we would have had with a public ceremony… 

I don’t know about you guys and gals but I feel like I planned so much I practically already lived through my wedding just by imagining the event so many times. 

Ellak30 – I don’t know if people had said this but maybe you could elope and do an “anniversary party, vows renewal” next year…?

Ellak30 :  do you have to cancel? We are having a small wedding this week. The venue and everyone is still willing to proceed. We might just have some extra antibacterial hand sanitizer…

I would continue on with your plans.   If your dad is ill, I wouldn’t want to take the chance of him not being there in a year.  With a small group, I would have no issues with getting married as planned.

Ellak30 :  This year you get to graduate which is great and exciting, and next year you get the wedding – rather than everything in one year and nothing to look forward to! Also you’re a bride the whole time you engaged as far as I’m concerned so another year of being a bride!

Ellak30 :  Yes! Most of our friends are local so I am sure they may come and if they do not I understand! Our reception spot a local restaurant is willing for us to have the ceremony there if the gardens on the university are closed on campus. I’ll admit I haven’t spent a lot of money on much – mostly the dress, and the food we will have a final head count the week before and I’ll be double checking with all the guests just to be sure. At the worst backup my old roommate runs a media company and he’ll run video and we’ll send copies if it’s just us, him and his wife and the officiant.

I get to marry my best friend in my future husband, the rest of it was just icing on the cake! We fully agree it will be special however it unfolds.

Please keep me updated! My wedding is 5/1/20 and we planned to proceed as normal and hope for the best. We canceled our bachelor and bachelorette parties and postponed honeymoon tho. I support you moving forward. Everyone is scared of the unknown right now and I totally understand other brides postponing but I feel like we are way to close to our date to do anything but pray and hope for the best!
