Hey guys! My wedding date is May 16th and I am just looking for some input on whether or not to change the date! We are thinking about making a final call Mid-April.

    I actually just changed my May 16 wedding to November 13. Schools are now closing until the end of the year so I just don’t really see this whole virus going away before May. But honestly after postponing my stress level is so much better!

    We were May 23rd and made the call to postpone last week. Because so many other spring 2020 couples are in the same boat, we were worried that if we waited too long to postpone, all the 2021 dates would already be booked for our vendors and we’d lose our deposits. Since we decided so early, we were able to book all 9 of our vendors for the new date (spring 2021) at no additional cost. Many of our vendors did tell us they were booking up fast for 2021. So I’d echo what others have said and talk to your venue and maybe other vendors that were particularly pricey / that you have your heart set on.

    Just made the difficult decision today to reschedule our May 30th wedding. I was so anxious every day about it, wondering if I should send my invites out, not knowing when I was going to reschedule my bridal shower that was supposed to be yesterday, etc. With the news each day being the way it is, I just don't see things being fully back to normal by end of May unless there is a dramatic change in the next 2 weeks. I hope i'm wrong though!

    We were able to get our venue and all of our vendors except our photographer - we are using her assistant instead of her - for our new date which is July 18th. It's not too much further away, but I'm hoping it will be enough time for this to pass, especially with some warm weather mixed in. I feel so much less stressed and anxious knowing that it is postponed and I don't need to send my invites out at this terrible, uneasy time.

    Thinking of all of you in this situation, this is so unfortunate for us brides who having been waiting so long for our big day!

    We are may 9th
    We called our venue today. If NJ doesn't lift the ban for the amount of people at the wedding then we can either post pone or get our $$$$ back. We are calling again next week n by mid april will make a decision. Will most likely decide to go for something smaller and get our $$$$ back

    Mine is May 16 as well! We are still having it as planned unless the venue tells us we have to postpone. They said they are waiting until 30 days out to make that call. I know not all guests may be able to make it, but 90% of our guests are local and are all optimistic that we should keep the date for now. Let’s all pray this gets better soon! I wish the best for all spring and summer 2020 brides ❤️

    Hi there- I’m my wedding date is May 16th too. I am not making a decision until April 6th. I have contacted all of my vendors though to see if they are available on the other date we were given. They have all responded and said it should work and will let us know if somebody ends up wanting them the same date. So stressful!!!

    There are probably a lot of brides from your venue having to make this decision, which means rescheduling may be hard if you wait. I think your best bet would be to make the call now.

    We are May 16th as well and we are waiting until closer to the end of April. Our vendor is not issue because it is a family friend. Our other vendors have also expressed they are not making any decisions until mid/end of April. With the advances of new medications that are being used to help combat this, I am hopeful this will be lessened and the bans will be lifted in time for the wedding. Personally I feel it is WAY too early to make a decision. We are 8 weeks away, so much could change in 8 weeks! I am also in Maryland and my county/surrounding counties have not been hit too hard.

    We're also May 9th, in NJ. That's great your venue's being so understanding! Ours isn't. We made the call already, because there's lot of guests who are overseas and schedules are making it to hard to pick another date when everyone can attend. So we decided to just try and do a courthouse ceremony instead

    I would take the leap and reschedule now because the longer you wait to postpone, the less dates will be available. May 16th is also cutting it really close to the no more than 10 people cut off. I'm so sorry you have to go through this Smiley sad

    We are May 23rd and waiting until mid-April to make the call. I don't want to be stupid or naive about this - but I also would be pretty devastated if things are much better by then and we can't get married because we postponed. Just going to wait until mid-April, but telling vendors the backup date in the meantime. The main venue has it saved for us, the other vendors are saying they will note it and tell us first if someone goes after it - all we can really ask for! I know it could take a very long time for this to get better, but I also know that two weeks ago everything was normal - two months is a long time... just take it one day at time and do what works for you! No one really knows anything - each friend or family member I talk to has their own opinion in a million directions. Some are pressuring me to postpone and some are pressuring me to wait it out - we are trying to just take everyone's opinion but will do what makes sense for us. I think it will be clear in a few weeks either way if things are getting better or not. If postponing now gives you more peace of mind, that is the right move for you. For us, right now staying hopeful while putting a backup plan in place is keeping us happy! Stay safe and positive everyone!!
