Like many of you, I was a 2020 bride and I postponed to June 2021. With things seeming to never end are their any brides that have already postponed their summer wedding to 2022? I am trying to hold off until at least March, but it really isn’t my dream day to have no dancing or everyone masked at our wedding. We have been engaged for 3 years and it seems the excitement of “wedding planning” has worn off due to the stress. Anyone else relate?
June 2020 to June 2021 bride as well! We are go ahead with our plans. Most of our guest are in education or first responders and our older guests should be vaccinated by then so we are going ahead. We cut our guest list to 70 which is half our venues capacity. Trying to plan again after one postponement is hard enough, if I had to wait another year I’d definitely be over it and just want to elope. Good luck
I am in the exact same boat as you. I got engaged December 2018, and we set our wedding date for November 2020. Covid hit and in March we decided to reschedule to November 2021. Now, it seems incredibly unlikely we will be able to have our wedding the way we envisioned it this year (ie, masks, social distancing, no dancing or hugging, etc.), so we postponed once again; this time to November 2022. We had originally planned on waiting until the spring to make a decision, but our vendors were already booking up for fall 2022, and we didn’t want to risk not being able to find a date next year (and there was no way we were waiting until 2023!) so we postponed now in order to make sure our vendors didn’t fill up their 2022 schedules before we secured our date.
I’m May 29 and we’re going ahead with as many people that we’re allowed! We’re in NY and it’s honestly enticing to only pay for 50 people versus 150 people and then save for a house. We’ve been together 7 years and we could postpone another year but who knows what state we’re in at that point. My twin is also getting married oct 29 so the fall isn’t an option to postpone to. We’re just so over it at this point 😂.

Yes it’s so frustrating! I have been trying to stay in contact with my vendors as well and I will definitely have to do the same, there is no way in waiting until 2023 either lol! Good luck on your big day!

I’m not to far from you! I’m in Mass and the restrictions are equally as tight. I don’t mind downsizing and I totally agree no one even knows if 22 will be better. Congrats on your big day!
Our wedding is June 2021 (our original date) and we don't plan on postponing. Our worst case scenario would be if they put really tight restrictions on gatherings because we're having a small wedding as it is. If they require less than our numbers, we'll likely elope at the same venue with our immediate family and best friends and then plan a vow renewal or reception celebration for the next year. We'll get married on our date no matter what.
Covid is ruining everything! Postponed our 2020 wedding to this May and now looking into 2022 dates which there aren’t many left. It’s going to take all year to get people vaccinated and restrictions to be lifted. I’m tired of postponing but I don’t want my day ruined by restrictions after paying so much. Praying things will get bette soon!
We postponed June 2020 to December 2020 and downsized from 150 to 32...our venue (all inclusive) ended up giving us $4k back as we left the venue for our mini-moon. It's sad missing people but AMAZING to start our marriage out with no leftover financial burdens hanging over our heads.
We have been engaged since November 2018, original date was July 2020, and our rescheduled date is May 2021. It's tough but we are going to try to make a go of it even with all the restrictions and move forward with whoever can be there (we totally get that some people will not be comfortable, meanwhile, we have many who are or will be vaccinated by that time). Current restrictions are 25% capacity (75 people), everyone must stay seated, and no dance floor. We have had to completely reimagine it so we are ditching the DJ and bringing in dueling pianos. We figure if we have to all be sitting they can at least entertain everyone, and if by some miracle we can do a little dancing they can pivot to that set-up. It is not what we planned but we don't want to postpone anymore. We are in our 40's, building a house that will be done this summer, and we feel a little silly trying to chase after the wedding we planned when things are the way they are. This is just our decision and what is best for us and I certainly understand why couples would postpone again! I totally get it. Best of luck to all!
I'm with you on that! May 21 in CT. The vaccine is moving along pretty steadily, I think the majority of our wedding will be vaccinated by that point (at a minimum all of the vulnerable populations), but i did think that the cheaper wedding for less people wouldn't be the worst thing....
I feel you girl! I'm in Illinois and restrictions have been tight since last year. We were originally supposed to get married July 2020, ended up doing a small backyard wedding with just our immediate families and postponed our reception to April 2021. We here we are almost a year later and in the same situation. We made the difficult decision to cancel and not reschedule last week. It sucks, but we're tired of postponing and don't want to keep putting our lives on hold just to throw a party.
