So we were supposed to have around 275 people at our 4/25/20 wedding, then COVID crashed everything. We were able to have a small ceremony on our original day with a few people, and said we'd...

Postponing again... trying to make the best of it.
Renay in Community Conversations, on June 5, 2020 at 4:17 PM

In March we had to postpone our big wedding celebration to June 27th. 3+ months seemed reasonable to us and our new venue, but unfortunately this hit worse than we hoped. Our state hit phase 3 last...

Renay in Planning, on March 28, 2020 at 11:05 PM

We were planning to be married on April 25th. Due to COVID-19 we've had to reschedule (and relocate) our wedding to June 27th. We were planning on a 2:30 ceremony, no first look so a cocktail hour,...

First I want to apologize. I KNOW everyone is so tired of hearing about COVID-19, but I need to vent somewhere that people will relate. Our wedding was supposed to be on April 25th. This date was...

Renay in Etiquette and Advice, on February 11, 2020 at 4:52 PM

I feel like my poor friends and coworkers are tired of my stories at this point, and thought some of you may find this as irritating and honestly kind of funny as I did... So my bridal shower is Feb...
