Being that so much has happened within the past year, our wedding has been postponed. With that being said, we decided to just get married (yesterday) and have our ceremony at a later date. I’m having feelings of uncertainty and thinking we should have waited till the ceremony because I’m not sure what’s the purpose since we are already married....but I really do want my fairytale wedding.
If you are already married, you had a ceremony. It is disrespectful to those choosing smaller weddings to say you didn’t have one. Do you mean a large wedding with all friends/family in attendance? The legal part could have been postponed for that.
I’m still so shocked at that way some women comment on these threads. With that being said…have your dream wedding! Every girl deserves her fairytale. It can be a cow renewal or just a symbolic ceremony but it’s still Your day ❤️

Michelle, your perspective is yours alone. The only attendees were my husband and I, hence we did not have a ceremony. Also, if you feel disrespected about my post on my circumstances. That’s your personal issue
So many couples were affected by COVID and had small ceremonies with just themselves or maybe immediate family and having their originally intended larger event later. I would inform guests that you were married in an intimate ceremony on your original date, but you want to celebrate with all your loved ones.
Hi Jocelyn, We’re doing the same! We had a very intimate ceremony with just parents, and would love to have one with our family and friends! Call it a vow renewal, or whatever…it is not disrespectful in any shape or form. From a personal and professional stand point couples have been doing this for years prior to COVID. One bride is calling theirs a wedding celebration which I like! One person said vow renewals are for 10, 15+ year anniversaries. I say whatever it is I just want our friends and family to have the opportunity to be apart of it and to get to celebrate with everyone 😊
Of course you can still have your dream wedding!! In many countries (even pre-COVID), the legal ceremony has to take place in a civil ceremony. Therefore, if a couple also wants a religious ceremony or alternative ceremony they have a second one. This is common and expected. So don't let anyone tell you can't have your wedding the way you want it.
