Is there anyone else out there who postponed their wedding and now is petrified they may have to postpone again. We pushed it a whole year from June to June, but I’m still so nervous. I’ve waited 10 years for this wedding and I guess I just one perfect.
I totally understand the concern! However, there's still a lot of time between now and June, and a lot can happen - it's possible that things might improve between now and then, though no one really knows what will happen. I wouldn't stress out just yet. Maybe re-assess in February or March, and decide at that time whether to postpone again, downsize the guest list, or continue as planned? No matter what happens, your wedding will be beautiful!
There is no perfect when it comes to 2020 and beyond weddings, I think that something we all have to just accept. If you’ve waited this long, you can either get married with a small amount of people or at the courthouse, and have your large celebration later or you can continue to wait. It’s up to you.

None of this is fair, the only comfort I have for you is you're not alone. That and, there will be no stupid judgy questions of why you eloped, postpone etc during a global pandemic from smart people.
The good news is by June we may have a vaccine and a better treatment plan. The bad news is nobody actually knows.
Cross the bridges when you come to them. If you want to have a better surefire plan then plan for things the way it is now and you won't have to replan a thing. If you want to take a risk, plan for a hopeful future. But it's too far to tell.
We got married last month in a very different setting than we planned and with only our immediate family present. We postponed the reception to July 2021. At the time we made the decision to postpone, it didn't even occur to me that we might have to postpone it again, but now I feel like there's a decent chance we will. I think the reason I'm not more upset about that possibility is because we're already married. If you have to postpone again, or even if you're just really worried about it, I'd recommend just getting married in whatever way you can, so you won't be as disappointed if your plans have to change.
I feel the same way I got married this July with 30 people but pushed my reception to next July still haven’t worn my dress and I’m just ready to wear it and move on there’s so much uncertainty so I can understand your worry as I feel the same. A lot can change in a year though and we have to stay hopeful as best as we can I would agree around February March is a perfect time to really know what you should do and to make a decision at that point.
My fiance and I decided to postpone our wedding to June 2021 as well and we have definitely had the same concerns as you! When we postponed back in May we thought pushing it out to next June was far enough, but now that it is September we're not so sure. We decided though that no matter what, we are getting married and having our reception on June 27, 2021 no matter what it looks like or however many people we can have. I'm hopeful that things will either get better or generally remain the same, but either way we will be moving ahead. We are already over a year on our engagement so we don't really want to wait that much longer by postponing again and I don't really want to have separate days between getting married and the celebration. So whatever happens we will just deal and it will still be the best day of our lives
