Our big day is July 25th. We have everything planned out at this point. We are literally just sitting here waiting on our big day and now I am worried our vendors will start to cancel on us even though it’s 4 months away. I am a nurse and my hospital sent out an email yesterday stating that if anyone chooses to leave the country we will automatically be placed in 14 day quarantine.
I know it’s four months away, but damn. Do I start to post pone things or do we wait to see if this clears up soon? I’m trying to stay positive and my fiancé is very, very positive but thinking about postponing our big day is horrible😣

    Same wedding date as you and I’m not worried. Stay home, stay clean and keep wedding planning.

    Mines August 1 (week after yours) I won't be postponing. This will likely be seasonal (similar to the flu -- not saying symptoms or severity are) per a number of scientists in this area. I think by May this chaos will be wrapped up. There's a problem, but there's definitely some hysteria.

    Also a nurse and getting married the week after you. We’re not planning on cancelling and most of our vendors already reached out that business is still on. My main concern is I’m already taking off 2 weeks for the wedding and mini moon and if this virus is still going around, I will not be allowed back to work until after 2 weeks from returning from our mini moon in Cabo. I don’t think I can afford to be off that long. I’ve just been trying to stay positive and hope things will start to clear up by then. I don’t even think it’s an option for us to postpone our wedding if this continues till then.

    Mine is July 11th, I’m a nurse as well but my hospital hasn’t quite put that notice out yet. I’m going to wait and see.

    Us too. Both of our jobs are telling us we will have to be quarantined for 14 days WITHOUT pay unless we have the PTO to spare...we can’t afford that either. We’ve decided to wait until June 1st to reschedule, hoping that all this will be cleared up sooner than later
