Hello Brides!
I am beyond stressed and hopefully can get some advice. I live in Michigan and having a Destiination wedding in Miami beach Florida, November 20, 2020. With the changes happening daily my emotions are all over the place for my big day, I don’t know if I should push the wedding back(WHICH I WOULD HATE TO DO) Cancel the big ceremony and get married in Michigan.

Fellow Brides; how are y’all handling planning your BIG DAY????

    Miami is a tough call, especially because their numbers are continuously going up and they are shutting down businesses. You can always legally get married in Michigan in the same day and reschedule your wedding in Miami for later.

    I am a Florida bride (Tampa Bay Area), but I live here. Our ceremony is still currently set for 11-7-2020. Our guest list was already small (60 people), so hopefully things will continue on with some minor adjustments of course. But currently my venue hasn’t wanted to make any changes until it gets closer.

    I’m the day after you in coastal Virginia and at this point we are still proceeding as planned. We have a smaller wedding to begin with (60 total guests including the wedding party) so the size isn’t the concern at the moment. Everyone is coming from out of state which presents some concerns but I’m not even thinking about postponing or canceling unless something changes at the end of August/beginning of September.

    I feel you girl! We are having a destination wedding in California on 10/24. Canceling is just not an option for me. I’m praying everything works out but I’m definitely panicking. I’m proceeding as planned as of now.

    Ooooo that’s tough. FL is not doing great right now. We just postponed to next year, and I’m in upstate NY where guidelines are pretty strict and cases are dropping. Still so many red flags, so we pulled the trigger on postponing yesterday. Honestly, I was immediately less stressed. Just have to iron out a few more details, and it’s off to being engaged for an additional 370 more days.


    I could think of worse things that could happen. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    I am feeling the same as you. I just told my mom I feel as if someone died thinking of postponing. FL is tough because they just got pushed back a phase but here in MA we're in phase 3 and they told me no dance floors, no photobooths, no bar service it has to be waiters or waitresses, and masks required unless seated at the table and we are still unsure of how many people we can have in the tent. God bless all of us brides.

    Is your FL vendor offering any updates on rules, advice or potential refunds? Here in MA bc we're technically allowed to have a wedding now, they wont even consider discounting or refunding me.

    This is my issue too with my wedding which would potentially be 9.6.2020. Im like do I want to have a less than what I imagined wedding or postpone another year which will put our life off another year pretty much. It's so tough. I am 28, turning 29 in September and I'd like to get my life started as a married couple lol! This world is crazy right now.

    I am supposed to be getting married on 12-12-2020 in Palm Bach, FL, which is also a hot spot in FL right now. I think we have decided to cancel/postpone. I am from NY so we have a lot of family coming in from the northeast, as well as Cali and Chicago. Although, I was set on keeping the same date even if I had to cut the guest list, this year was supposed to be fun and about us celebrating with our friends and family and it has been anything but. At this point I am over wondering and stressing. We still havent decided if we will still have a ceremony on the same date or just push everything back all together.

    Good luck! I know this is no fun for any of us!

    Haha, I have almost the exact situation. I pulled the plug on mine yesterday and feel better too. I know I won't be putting people at risk to die since I've told the plug that makes me feel really good. The part that really sucks is this pivotal moment in our life had to be moved, but it'll turn out ok. We're planning to do something a few years down the line for all the people who, especially those who didn't feel safe to RSVP. They will now you have more confidence for the next time around. For the time being we'll go to city hall with our parents and call it a day.
