4/24/20 wedding. Do i postpone?

Francesca, on March 15, 2020 at 10:34 PM Posted in Planning 0 5
I’m so anxious and upset .. what do we do? This is months of planning and i just fear that things are not going to improve in the next few weeks and will force us to make a decision. Do we just make a decision now and take the stress off ??

    Talk to your venue & vendors and come up with a back up plan. You could also continue if your venue/vendors agree and you think enough guests that you want to be there will be able to make it.

    CDC has just posted new guidelines recommending no large gatherings over 50 persons. My Dad just had to postpone his 3/21 wedding and after I thought about it a bit, it was easy to see that given his situation and the current pandemic that he made the right decision. I imagine you want your day to be full of love and laughter — not hand sanitizer and worried guests. My wedding is in August in Seattle and even we are thinking about postponing the wedding (although still getting legally married regardless...cause ultimately it’s about the marriage, not the wedding, right?!) Unfortunately, so much of this is out of our control but it is in our control to minimize the risk of viral spread and traveler angst during this uncertain time. Good luck to everyone with their decisions!

    Currently, the CDC recommends against gatherings of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks. And it recommends that people in high risk groups avoid gatherings of any size.

    I would make the decision to postpone now. The only exception might be if you have a wedding with no guests at all, or a tiny wedding with only guests who are local (no flying involved) and not in high risk groups.

    Our date is 4/4/20 and we are talking with our venue and several other vendors about our options for rescheduling. We have children, some of our family is out of state and in the high risk group. I don’t want everyone that would show up to be scared out of their minds and not enjoy themselves. I think it’s best to play it safe, I know how you’re felling, it’s okay you’ll get through it
