Our wedding was postponed to August, and now August is not happening either. At this point I’m just over the whole thing and have no desire to even plan a wedding anymore. Is anyone else feeling this way? My friends are giving us suggestions but we’re just so far over it and have no motivation to think about it anymore.

    I'm not in this exact situation but my advice is to step away from it. Smiley smile it sounds like suggestions and alternatives are upsetting you and you're burnt out. Take a "leave of absence" away from planning. Postpone your postponement (lol) by which I mean don't pick a new date or anything. Just take time to relax and not worry about it.

    I went through this last month. Just take a break, breathe, then, when you're ready, resume. If you're never ready thats okay too!

    I’m over it. I’ve already decided if we can’t have our reception in September that we pushed back from July then we are not having one. We are still getting married in July and that’s the most important thing. I’m just over all the planning and decisions and unknown and want to move on to the next Chapter of our lives. I don’t want to keep dragging out the wedding. Maybe someday if we don’t have a reception we will have a big anniversary party and celebrate like a reception.
    It’s a tough situation but I just keep thinking that the most important thing is being married to the man I love.

    In the same boat! We pushed from September this year to August next year. We moved all our vendors to the new date and we are taking a break from all things weddings to get back to the normal and not being stressful all the time.

    Absolutely. Our wedding was November 2020. We moved up to September to match our state’s (PA) phasing options but that’s even uncertain. We do have some private things planned in case September isn’t a go. Either way, it’s been exhausting, tiring and stressful to the point that I just want to say “I do” in my living room with sweats on and go about my life. I encourage taking some time away from planning and really focus on the end goal. Forget about the day, the time and even Covid and wonder how can your end goal still happen. Wishing you all the best. Truly, I understand the pain

    I'm with you. In March we pushed our April 25th wedding to June 27th. 3 weeks ago we moved to next June. We got married on our original date and are just waiting for the celebration with everyone. I swing wildly some days from still REALLY wanting that experience to being so over it and worried that no one will want to come when we have already been married for so long.

    I don't have any advice, just support in the fact you are not alone Smiley heart

    If I can get a refund, I am willing to just elope. However, my contract said I will loose out on half of my all inclusive wedding! I’m just torn!

    Yep, totally over it. Getting married 7/18 and I really don’t have the motivation to do anything. I just want to be married.

    I have the same feelings! Postponed our May 2nd wedding in Miami to August 29th. We live in FL but all of my family is in NY and now NY put restrictions on NYers traveling to FL. If we have to postpone again I’m going to see if we get some money back if we cancel. At a loss here on what to do. We did decide that if we had to postpone a second time that we will elope this summer.

    That’s where I am. We postponed our May wedding to August and as of now we’re supposed to have it but I keep going back and forth. My bridesmaids are like if you’re that worried postpone to next year. At this point, this wedding has caused so much anxiety and ocd with checking the news and ww blogs everyday that I just need to get it over with and move on with my life. ESP bc who knows If things will be normal last year. I don’t want to prolong the anxiety for nothing.

    I've been there before. Instead of our 92 person wedding May 9 2020 , we had a 7 person wedding May 16 2020 in an outdoor garden ceremony. We arent doing a big wedding next year. It was cheaper to do it this way and def something we wanted . Dont stress! Do something that will make you both happy.

    Our wedding got canceled 3 weeks before it happened. Then we rescheduled for August. Now that’s not happening either. I would love to say F it and cancel altogether but my venue won’t refund me. I don’t even wanna get married at this point.
