Hey Everyone!
My wedding is scheduled for 8/28/20 in stroudsmoor PA. I have been full of anxiety and stress during a time that should be full of excitement. Does anyone else have a wedding planned the end of August? If so what are your thoughts ?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated because I have absolutely no clue what the best course of action is ..
Thanks!!

    Hi! I am 8/15 in NJ. Not excited at all anymore and full of anxiety. I feel robbed of the experience I’ve looked forward to my whole life. Don’t know what to do. Almost wish “they” would release a statement saying all gatherings for summer are cancelled, so that we can move on from this limbo state of being. Did you send/order invitations?

    I said the same exact thing yesterday !! I feel like I put so much time and energy into planning and now I can’t even be excited about it. I’m sorry your going though this too .. we haven’t sent out invites yet.. we’re waiting until June to kind of see where things are at. I’m just so upset by it all..

    We are going to hold off a little on the invites too. It helps a little to know there are other brides out there feeling the same. No one else understands how we feel. Did you have a shower or Bach party yet?

    Our date is 9/5/20 and I am also in PA. We are moving forward with our date as of now and hoping to make a decision by mid-June when our invites need to go out. However, we do have a back-up date of 9/18/21 already set with our venue and vendors. Places book up so fast around here...when I reached out to my venue about two weeks ago they only had 5 dates available for next year between all of the reschedulings and new couples!!

    That’s a good idea ! I spoke with my vendor the other day and she stated we were going forward with everything as planned but I think it may be good to have a backup date as well. Thank you for sharing !!

    Hi Margret!
    I’m sorry I thought I responded to this ! I haven’t had either 🙁. Were you able to have a wedding shower or anything ?? Also, how large of a wedding are you having ?

    Hi Kelly,

    I'm so sorry you're not enjoying the planning process as much as you might have under more normal circumstances. This is a tough time for engaged couples. All couples. People in general.

    Coincidentally, there's another discussion with a PA bride with an August wedding here: For Pennsylvania brides-august

    As I told her, the general consensus for August is that couples should continue to monitor the situation and try to make a decision by the end of May. It's basically a waiting game right now. You're not alone. Check out these discussions with other August couples:

    i need you, August 2020 Brides.

    I'm hoping you can move forward with your August wedding! Smiley heart

    150 people and no shower or bachelorette party. We postponed but I doubt the new dates will happen. Even if they do, everything will feel rushed!

    I’m so sorry 😐 I totally understand how you feel. I didn’t even bother postponing my shower because it was just to much stress. I just filled out the form for my vendor to get my invitations started and to be honest I wasn’t even excited. I basically as this point just told them to do whatever they want because I feel so confused about it right now. Like you said, I just feel robbed.
