Hi brides!! I am still planning on getting Married August 8, 2020 And wanted to know if anyone else still was getting married in August and what their weddings looking like? Nothing will stop me from marrying my man that day, bc that’s truly the only thing I care about, I just want to make sure...
Hi brides!! I am still planning on getting Married August 8, 2020 And wanted to know if anyone else still was getting married in August and what their weddings looking like? Nothing will stop me from marrying my man that day, bc that’s truly the only thing I care about, I just want to make sure whatever we do to celebrate keeps everyone safe. Our venue has kept reassuring us that they will be able to hold our reception safely (the venue holds 1000 and we are expecting around 125) so SUPER spaced out. I don’t mind wearing a mask and not dancing on top of one another but I can’t help to feel that guilt for not postponing. Anyone else in the same boat ?

    We are moving forward in this new normal but with caution. Our wedding date is 8.15.20. Outside of the essential people to help us have a beautiful day there will not be a physically present audience. All of our guests will be attending via Zoom. Our reception venue per guidelines are allowed to accommodate 50 guest max for the reception which again we’re not concerned about. We will have a max of 25 people including us. Our thoughts are at the end of the day are those excited & happy for us will still be apart of our day via zoom those that are critical to our success & have help encouraged us along the way will be present in person (immediate family only). #letsmakeitofficialbutsafely


    Best wishes to all August Brides!! Stay safe & healthy! 😘🍾🥂🔔

    Yes! My wedding day is August 15! We decided not to postpone our wedding plans either, but our venue made us change our guest list from 125 to 75. But that's ok because we're gonna get married regardless of the circumstances. I decided not to allow anyone to change my mind or make us feel guilty. And we will also be practicing social distancing

    Hi, good luck with your wedding! My wedding is August 22, 2020 and I'm getting excited & anxious. We were supposed to honeymoon in Turks & Caicos but Southwest has cancelled all flights until Dec. So 2 days ago we had to pick another honeymoon location.

    Yep, having ours at the end of August and had to cut 50 people and only 50 will be attending. The guests need to wear masks during the ceremony and dancing. We can only have one person from our wedding party each stand next to us. Our wedding cake is going to be under plexiglass if displayed or not displayed and they serve it cut so we don’t get to cut it. Dancing needs to be 6ft apart with masks and the bar got moved all the way across the venue 🙃 it’s been really really hard but I’ve been with my fiancé for 9 years and we just want to get married at the end of the day. I would hate to wait any longer it’s just been so draining. I’m hoping to make it as nice as we possibly can but yeah. Plus my sister can’t make it to the wedding anymore

    There were several coworkers from the my list/groom's list that we had to resend. I personally called them to explain the strict COVID-19 new guidelines, so they understood and sends their blessings anyway

    I’m in the same boat. I’m getting married 8/15! We opted to just have the ceremony and then go out to eat afterwards with our family and the wedding party, currently working to try and rent the upper level of a restaurant 🤞🏻. I feel the same though, as long as we’re married at the end of the day, that’s all that matters.

    My fiancé and I are in our 50’s and this is a second marriage for both of us. Our wedding is in Southern Vermont 8/16/29. We are lucky because it was a smaller wedding to begin with, outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour on the deck, dinner inside, however adjacent to deck and very open. We’ve changed the table arrangements a few times as the mask mandates change. Original guest list from 60 down to 45. Sadly they are mostly people who cancelled due to travel restrictions and the unknown. Mostly my friends from San Diego and one sister 😔 in Nebraska. For those people a friend has offered to stream the ceremony. Out of the 45 guest 11 are 12years and under and most likely will be outside. Dancing outside on the deck. Adirondack chairs on the lawn and space by the bar. I ordered extra masks for kids and adults and adhesive gemstones for kids to decorate their masks (make it fun). I feel for those who have had to cancel, reschedule etc. And wish everyone the best! And Yes I do worry!

    August 29th here! We have changed our plans several times because we were determined not to postpone. We originally invited 110 people, we’ve cut that back to immediate family & our wedding party only now. We changed our venue to an event home at the beach & will have a private, intimate, backyard reception with a beach ceremony. It has been a whirlwind to say the least!! We’re disappointed our original plans cannot happen but this is so out of anyone’s control that we are making the most of it. Despite all the obstacles we’ve faced as 2020 couples, let’s not forget that in the end we will be married to our best friend and our special days will be beautiful no matter what!!

    8/15 in PA!

    The best "hack" ive found so far is getting red, yellow, and green ribbon and having guest wear the color they feel. Green is comfortable with hugging and touching, Yellow is mask and they will come to you, and Red is strict social distancing please wear a mask around me. I am also using the website and using a corona virus update page, along with putting the program, seating chart, and menu all on the website so that there is less touching. We are still having dancing and hoping people respect the ribbons with how close they dance to one another!

    We are in Jamaica and we are not planning to postpone again. We already postponed our 6/13 to now and frankly we are just tired of the uncertainty. So we have decided to stick with 8/22 fly high or low. We just want to be married so that we can start our lives together.

    That’s a great idea with the ribbons! I am going to suggest that to the wedding planner and discuss with family who are uncomfortable with the hugging. We can put on table with masks . May the adults can use one of the gemstones I got for the kids instead of ribbon Thank you for sharing!

    8/29. Original venue is not even open due to PA state guidelines. So I completely changed venues this week to a venue that WILL hold 70 people outside, and I am not postponing!

    Congratulations to those tying the knot today and to those getting married in the future. Yesterday evening we found out the place we made reservations for dinner “lost the reservation” and we had to find an alternative at such short notice. Not something we’d have to be dealing with had the pandemic not thrown a wrench in our original plan. We face so many challenges but in the end, you will be marrying the one you love so even if the journey hasn’t been perfect, you’ve traveled this journey to get to the end goal, marrying the love of your life. As I count down the hours till I say “I do,” I can definitely say it’s been worth it. May you all have the same happiness I feel on this day.
