A couple who married the same day as my husband and I, now have COVID. They tested positive. My mom just called me to tell me the news. I know this couple, they went ahead with their wedding plans, had a big wedding ceremony and a reception, had people even fly in to attend. I didn't want to say, I hoped that something like this wouldn't happen and I had a feeling it might. The bride and the groom have a responsibility to tell their guests so they will be tested.


As an engaged couple in this COVID era, everyone has a responsibility to be careful with their wedding plans. Don't be reckless.

    Your profile says that you got married October 3rd.... If that’s correct, that means that it took almost a month for them to catch Covid if you’re saying they caught it because of their wedding. Highly unlikely, and probably not possible for them to have caught it from their wedding.

    I think it would be our responsibility to do the swab test before you fly or going to a party nowadays.

    I agree with this. A couple can only be reckless if they KNEW they already had COVID or were exposed and hosted a party while going around others without wearing masks AND never told others how they had it or were exposed. Other than that, in general it's the guests responsibility to get tested before attending a wedding. The guests and all of us have the option to not attend events. How can a big event happen if guests don't show up?

    What is the point of this post?


    They could have gotten Covid anywhere, and the previous poster is right, unless they have been sick for a while they likely did not contract it at their wedding 3.5 weeks ago.
    It is pretty sick if you actually hoped they got Covid because they had a bigger wedding than you did.

    I agree with PP. Instead of taking out your anger and frustration on a couple that had a better wedding than you, why can’t you just have a bigger celebration next year? It seems like that is what’s really bothering you here. How do you think the couple would feel if they knew that you were trying to bash their wedding day on social media? Maybe you should just consider having a bigger celebration next year and let go of animosity. Good luck to you

    Side point - it's possible that the couple caught Covid at the wedding (or events around it) and then were asymptomatic.


    My friend was asymptomatic and the doctors let him know he would have been highly contagious the first two weeks, but he may test positive for weeks more. Kind of crazy.
    People will make irresponsible decisions. All we can do is limit our own risks as much as we can, and really think about your guests.
    Think about the dumbest friend of your dumbest friend as you're making your guest list, guys.

    No. though it averages 10- 14 days til you start symptoms, people can be 10 days or more easily before mild cold symptoms get bad or a temp and deep cough develop enough to get tested. Early on in March friends who work at an airport, car counter and tickets, came to see us on vacation. Nothing for a week and a half, then a little sicket, about 20th siddenly 104 temps wracking cough cannot breathe. Back home numerous people they worked with were coming down with it. Not to be mean, but we had had a lot of recent disruption since Christmas, so when they came we did not give them rooms with up, but out in a rental apartment. No cases at that point in March anywhere around. When they went back to Canada, turned out there was a big cluster of people who dealt with customers at the airport. But our guests really looked like a minor cold, no one was testing groups. And it was well over 20 days when severe symptoms came. So they could well have gotten it on that wedding date. What makes it scary is the long lead in often from seemingly healthy people.

    I happen to think it’s insanely selfish and stupid to have anything other than a micro wedding at this time. We got married in July, just us and our children, and the officiant and his wife. And it was the perfect ceremony to marry my best friend and the man of my dreams. I wouldn’t dream of placing our loved ones and vendors in a position where they either had to gamble with their health or decline to attend our special day. We will celebrate when the apocalypse is over.
