We were 4/4. Fh's niece is currently under quarantine because her teacher tested positive, and his mom has lots of health issues that would make it impossible for her to travel. They were on our VIP list. That plus Dallas is currently under a ban for gatherings of 20 or more people, and we had to cancel. Thankfully our vendors were all very kind and allowed us to transfer without penalty. It has to be your call, at the end of the day. We felt like making everyone travel to a city on lockdown was selfish on our parts. At the end of the day though, you know your circumstances and your guests. Good luck! It sucks all around.

Ooph yeah! That's what it sounds like right now. Fh and I are on mandatory work from home, me indefinitely and him for at least 2 weeks. The writing was kind of on the wall for us. People were actually overall grateful to be told to stay put. Who knows if we would be forced to cancel by next month? We decided to put it off and not play chicken. Best thing to do is talk to your vendors and see what they say. Where are you getting married?

Definitely check with them! I peeked at your vendors and don't see any crossover, but all of our vendors were super understanding. Our cake lady actually said her best friend had moved her wedding that was also scheduled for our day. We didn't pay anything but a deposit to the mua to hold the day. I'm so sorry you're dealing with this!!! But Dallas being what it is right now, I would start considering it.
We are 4/25. We’ve decided to postpone to either late June, July, or beginning of August depending on which day all or most our vendors are available. Although we still plan to have a small ceremony on the 25th with just a few friends and family at my parents house. It’s heartbreaking but it’s the right decision.
Ours is set for 4/25, too, and are still a “go” for now. I honestly don’t know what we’re going to do at this point. Our venue is the local Elk’s Lodge, and they have not contacted us either. I’ll probably call them and our other vendors this week.
Before the ban was put in place, I emailed my venue and they said we had the option to moving out date without any penalty . But we opted to go through with our original date, hoping things would get better. But this virus is changing every day, things are so uncertain.
04/16 here. Our venue has shut down, our Governor announced we cannot have any public gatherings larger than 50 people. My fiance and I aren't terribly worried. We have been planning on a very simple, old fashioned wedding anyway!!! We invited 10 people (12 people total if you include us), no bridal party, and absolutely no exuberance.
If need be, we will have the wedding at a family members house, we'll make a small meal and cake.
As of right now we are 4/18 and hoping that things get better. My mind is reeling and we are just playing the wait and see game. Our venue emailed us this past weekend (before the 50 person limit recommendation from the CDC) and said that all weddings under 100 could continue. We have a little under 40 so as long as we still have a place to do it, I think we're planning on moving forward. The problem with this is things are changing so quickly. If they close bars/restaurants here then I know we're going to have to cancel, at least the reception. I'm trying to stay optimistic but things don't feel good right now. I've asked my fiancé to not making final payments until they are actually due (as most aren't due until the day before the wedding), so that we have a little more room to cancel if we need to. I just don't really know what to do right now.
