My wedding is March 29th and it’s local. My guests are at 135 and so far no one has canceled, and no one is coming by air. We also have honeymoon planned the day after in Cancun Mexico at a resort.
I am just so so sad, frustrated and anxious about what will happen with my wedding day. Like what if this gets even worse in the next 3 weeks, and the venue cancels my wedding. We’ve planned this for 13 months and I’m just so discouraged. What are other brides doing?
Our current plan is to go ahead with our wedding, and we're April 4th. My one concern is that the venue might cancel, but it sounds like everything is still planned to go ahead. I would take a deep breath and wait and see. As hard as it is - I've had a few panic attacks myself. It seems to change daily. It's so so sad that all of these plans might fall through. There was no planning for this, and it seems to be hitting brides universally. Not sure what we can do but wait it out so long as no one forces us to change our plans.
I’m so happy this was brought up. This has been the most stressful part of wedding planning. Our wedding is 5/2/20. My grandparents and those with health issues and compromised immune systems are coming. I hope this doesn’t change. We have had this planned for over 2 years. Will wedding insurance cover this? Ugh you’re definitely never prepared for a pandemic to impact your wedding.
Our day is 4/25 so this is definitely on our minds too. Half of our invitees would need to travel. We posted today on our Save the Date FB page that we understand if the current situation changes travel plans for some. We care more about everyone’s health and safety. I DO care and am feeling discouraged too but I told FH that I’m wearing my dress and doing my hair/makeup no matter what haha. I think our event will still go on, but our guests count might drop.

Hello date twin! very nervous here as well i havent had any motivation to plan anymore sigh. I honestly dont think insurance will cover pandemics looking at how sxsw wasnt covered under multiple insurance plans. I also need help on how to handle this. I was thinking of not watching any news for 2 weeks...

Honestly? Not well. Fiancé and I just got into the fight of a lifetime over this. He’s cool calm and collected and “ok if we need to reschedule”. Well...he hasn’t spent the last 2 years planning, and researching, and spending hours and hours working on this wedding. It’s not just ok....it’s a big deal!
We’re getting married 4/18 in Puerto Rico. Not a single guest has mentioned cancelling yet. I’m trying to stay optimistic. This morning I thought dang I should have gotten wedding insurance but I doubt it covers pandemic anyway.
My wedding is March 21st and so far no one has cancelled and we’re expecting around 200 people. To say the least, this has caused a lot of tears and breakdowns and has made me want to cancel it so bad. Unfortunately, we’ve invested a lot and my family isn’t letting me waste a day I’ve been planning for a year.... but still I’m in distress and I haven’t been excited about my wedding since this virus started and it’s just saddened my whole last three months. I thought I was alone.. but I’m glad we can all relate...
I’m from Chicago and my wedding is in key west on 3/28. Reality is finally sinking in that our guests probably aren’t going to be able to travel via air. It’s a 24 hour drive. Has anyone had sympathetic vendors willing to issue refunds?
I have been searching this topic all day! This is sooo stressful! Our wedding is 5/8. We are playing it by ear right now. We have contacted vendors about our options in a worse-case scrnario. Waiting to hear back.

Yay date twins!!! I think no news is a great idea! Wish I could do that same but EVERYDAY my fiancé is recapping everything that’s going on. I ask him to stop but his own anxiety about it is getting in the way. I agree there’s probably little we can do. I’m really hoping this blows over and we do a better job if managing it. I’m really trying to go for ignorant bliss over here. Lol.
I completely understand my wedding is March 30th and I am getting a little nervous. I hope the venue and no one cancels unless necessary. Our honeymoon is in Jamaica just praying for the best it would suck to loss out on all the money we have paid so far.
Yes! We are getting married on March 29th and half our guests (ALL family members) are coming from out of town. I was pretty calm until two days ago and now I cannot stop PANIC!SPIRAL!OF!DEATH! We've only gotten 5 cancellations so far, all from family in California, but it's so hard to tell how anything will go over the next two weeks, and of course all the major payments are starting to be due to the vendors. Who would have thought any of this would happen!?
