Well! We postponed our 9/19/20 wedding to 10/2/21. Mostly due to Covid-19, but also because I had to have hip surgery( to replace the labrum and shave the bone to prevent it from shredding the new labrum). We also had his brother deployed to Japan to help run Covid test for our military- he’s a groomsman, my dad having cancer and chemo, my best friends- bridesmaid- husband having cancer and 2 rounds of treatments, my bridesmaid & fiancé Secretary/friend for 33 years be diagnosed with the most aggressive type of breast cancer and now doing chemo, my 1/2 sister( she’s German, dad was army) and I become true sisters and now her come to wedding next year!, constant and consistent drama/abuse from fiancé 23yo daughter- she’s moving out the 24th!!!!, my mom not doing great from her surgery last January, my Matron of Honor about to have her baby in November and ring bearers mommy have her baby 2 days before wedding was supposed to be, then lack of work for me as I model & no court dates for fiancé who’s a trial attorney it just made sense.
So, my question is: DO YOU THINK BY *NEXT* OCTOBER WE WILL STILL BE LIKE THIS OR MORE OF THE WAY WE WERE, pre-Covid????? How many of you have this date? What are you doing as far as masks, guest list, possible postponement???? All our vendors were able to roll to new date! So other than invitations we are all happily vendor booked! And did I mention we are doing a “Harry Potter” theme???

OK, first of all, I looooooove your theme!! (huge Harry Potter nerd here... my dog’s name is Potter! 😆) you absolutely MUST share photos after your wedding!!
As far as next fall being “back to normal“... I sure hope so! We have also had to reschedule our wedding and chose November 2021. In my gut, I truly feel as though things will be much better by then. I don’t know if it will be exactly the way it was pre-Covid, but I feel like it will definitely resemble it much more than it does now. That is an entire year to develop a vaccine, learn a lot more about the virus, how to effectively treat it, etc. We have both decided that if things are still bad next fall, then it is likely they are going to be bad for a very very long time, so we will go ahead and get married on that date, rather than try to postpone again.
I doubt the world will ever be 100% pre-covid again at this point. And a 100-year global pandemic most likely will still have regulations come fall of 2021. It’s all about modifications, I suppose! Best wishes 🤍

Thank you! And Pupper is Potter!! Omg love it! I’ll add a few pictures of stuff I’m doing now/have done for wedding. Not finished Bridesmaids boxes, my dad & stepmom box, FH mom & stepdad box, groomsmen boxes w/Reaper for my son & Anubis my mom, stepdaughters box and stepsons box, and our engagement announcement, and the 4 “house” animals to let the little ones play with!
I agree about the whole not postponing again. So regardless of if it is 200+ people or just our siblings, children and parents we WILL get married 10/2/21!

Ohhhhhhh, I Know it won’t be like it was entirely before Covid, but we can hope it can be much, much closer then it is now! I intend to have masks for people, hand sanitizer at each table, and our ballroom is large enough to space out easily.... So I am hoping that will help!
I also postponed to October 2021 from this October and I’m definitely crossing my fingers things will be better than they are now by that time. Like others have said, I think there will still be a degree of precaution that will need to be taken, whether that be mask-wearing or whatnot, but hopefully there will be an effective and widely available vaccine by that point that would significantly reduce risk and severity of spread. I can’t imagine postponing again, so I guess we’ll see what happens. 2020 brides have really gone through it!
Our date was 9/19/2020 too and now we’ve moved to 9/25/2021. I don’t know what will happen, I sure don’t want to worry about masks, and sanitizer, and social distancing on our big day, but we’ve also decided that next year we’re getting married no matter what. We have quite a few elderly family members and family and friends fighting chronic conditions like cancer so we’d like to share our day while all of our close people are here with us.
Ours will be that same day. We have two Covid backup plans. The first option is to move the reception outside. The second option is to postpone but still get legally married that day. I’m fully expecting to still need masks, lots of sanitizing, and doubting that we’ll be able to follow through with our buffet.
Hi! I had to postpone my wedding twice this year! We are finally booked for next June and I can’t lie I am SUPER nervous about this. I can’t honestly see it being this bad for another year, and I am hoping for less restrictions for my wedding (we can’t even dance here). Where I am from sadly a lot of businesses are closing for good, and I don’t know if they will survive another season with no weddings. I have thought about postponing again but that will be 5 years engaged for us and that isn’t something I want. I just wish we could all have the wedding we dreamed of. It really sucks, and I know I sound like a brat because covid is serious but I can’t help feeling like that. Best of luck to you!
Congrats! Our original date was 10.10.20 and at first we looked at postponing to 10.2.21. But we ultimately decided on 10.30.21 and today is our one year countdown. Like everyone, I hope things will have greatly improved by next fall. However, I haven’t yet reached the point of thinking that life will be “normal” again by then. Perhaps once there’s a constant and steady decline, I’ll feel more confident. But, until then, I’m just hopeful that life won’t shut again and that we can safely have our wedding with minimal to no restrictions. We’ll only have around 65 guests. So I’ve created a smaller back-up list and already looked into masks, just in case.
Your Harry Potter theme sounds like fun. Unfortunately, I’ve never fully watched any of the movies and have no knowledge about your decor items 🤦🏽♀️ But they look great!!!!
