I'm stressed and nervous about what's going on in the world while still trying to plan our wedding in June. Postponing is not an option. We have everything paid for and vacation time planned with work that we can't get back. I'm nervous that we'll be getting married alone at our house, because of social distancing, and in jeans because my 1st alteration fitting and groomsmen fitting has already been postponed. I'm 43, this is my 1st wedding and I'm heartbroken about it. Any other of you brides feel the same way?
I feel you girl! I would play it by ear a bit for June, take it one day at a time. I was supposed to get married tomorrow, and now we're planning on August. There's a lot of negativity about any day in 2020, but that seems ridiculous. You can certainly the day not being like you thought - you're grieving. Just take it one day at a time and know the wedding is simply a day to celebrate what you already have.
My wedding is the end of June and I’m taking it day by day. I am heartbroken at the thought of postponing but I know we’ll figure out a way to make it a beautiful wedding however and whenever it happens.

Same. Mines June 29 and I’m just praying everything calms down. The thought of having to postpone after planning for almost 2 years makes me almost come to tears. Trying to stay strong and not stress out my groom with all of my stressing.

Mine is also June 29th and I’m still trying to stay positive and not postpone yet.. I see so many nurses on here saying that it still won’t get better by then and that people won’t be comfortable to go out :/ but I’m still so excited and praying that everything works out
Girl, right there with you. Alterations have been postponed twice now. So bummed. I don't have much advice for you other than, do what you feel is best for you, your fiance, and finances. I'm sure everything will work out the way it is supposed to. Best of luck to you!
I am the same! Oct 2020, but reaching out to reschedule to next year. I have a bad feeling this wont be back to normal until next year. We also have economic things to worry about not just the virus. We might very well end up in a recession.
I feel you. I´ve been a bridesmaid 5 times waiting for my big day. I never thought I would find the person of my dreams. I want to get married and that´s what the big day is about, but I don´t want to get married in flipflops because the shoe stores have supply chain issues and in a dress with D cups instead of A because the alterations is closed. I´ve decided life is unfair and I´m happy to get married, but I wanted the big experience I had dreamed of my whole life.
This is definitely a crazy stressful and uncertain time for everyone! It seems like a lot of June brides are waiting a few more weeks before making postponement decisions, but everyone's situation is different and it never hurts to be proactive about plan b!
You also aren't alone right now! ❤️
There are a ton of June brides also talking about their Covid19 concerns in these discussions:
@Michele - my heart goes out to you. First time bride at 35 here. Bridesmaid countless times. I have waited what feels like forever for this to happen. it sucks. But at the end of the day - keep in mind that you still love each other, and that... NO ONE and NO THING can take away from you.
For what it's worth, you will be still be a bride. A BEAUTIFUL BRIDE; even if it is in your jeans, in your living room. Don't forget that. The vows you say to each other have no less meaning in a casual setting.
Hey girlfriend! I’m on the same boat as you! We haven’t sent out invitations yet (thankfully) so we are working on them now and we’ll have people rsvp ..this way they have to use our website where we will be announcing any postponement news but hopefully it doesn’t come to that
Order a white simple dress from Macy's. Something you could wear on anniversaries and remember your special day. You can hold the big day later and look at your contracts because this should be covered under clauses for cancel. Get what you can back and enjoy every moment with your love. Stay safe.
Ours is in October and we are sadly thinking of postponing to summer 2021. The venue told us even if they re-open, they're not sure what social distancing rules will need to be mandated (ie. limited guest list, face masks etc). I live in the Bay Area in California, so I know it is much worse here than other parts of the country.
Yes, I definitely share your concerns. I am an older bride at 48. Our wedding is in August. I don't want to wait either. I'm starting to seriously consider ways to hold the wedding with a smaller group. We will no longer be doing buffet and waiting for a honeymoon outside the States, etc.
