We postponed from July 2020 to July 2022 due to COVID. We just didn't feel comfortable holding a gathering during a pandemic (we would have felt awful if anyone got sick from attending or traveling to our wedding), and with the COVID restrictions in place, our wedding wasn't shaping up to be what we wanted. So we felt it was best for us to postpone to have the chance to host the wedding we both wanted.
We postponed from November 2020 to November 2021. We made this decision for several reasons. The first, and most important reason for us was safety. We would have felt terrible if someone were to get sick or potentially die because of our event! Plus, everyone would be traveling and we did not want people to have to choose whether to drive a super long distance, or be shoved into a plane with strangers and potentially exposed to the virus. We also couldn’t imagine spending tens of thousands of dollars for a wedding that wasn’t at all what we envisioned (ie, social distanced, everyone wearing masks, no one dancing or hugging, no barhopping after the reception, etc.). We want everyone to feel happy and worry-free at our wedding – it is supposed to be a celebration after all!! We just couldn’t justify spending that much time and money on a wedding we didn’t love. Plus, I only plan to get married once. I don’t want to look back on my wedding with regret.
Yes! Loads of couples changed their dates, including us. We were originally 10.10.20 (and would’ve been married for a month now LOL!). But in June, we decided to postpone a year to 10.30.21. In our case, we’re having a domestic destination wedding weekend in Las Vegas. Naturally that requires our guests to travel and stay a few nights. With Covid being new and unpredictable (and also not wanting to put that weight on our guests to travel), we decided to postpone a year. That way, the pandemic wouldn’t be so new anymore and we’d all be more used to living life during it. If our wedding was a local, single day event, we would’ve gone forward with it. But that wasn’t the situation with our wedding plans. Ultimately, it worked out well for us and we love our new date. The only sucky part is that our engagement increased from 21 months to 33 months. But that’s not a big deal at all, especially since time is already flying by.
We did. We’re we’re supposed to get married on Kauai in March but with pre travel testing and a pike in cases we decided it was too risky and postponed to July and moved the venue to Glacier National park!
We changed from June 27, 2020 to December 12, 2020. We also cut our guest list in over half from 150 to 60. The county we are having our wedding has seen a tiny uptick and we are requiring all of our guests to wear masks, take a covid test prior to arriving, taking temps at the door and providing individual hand sanitizer to everyone. We are taking all the pre-cautions we can and at this point hoping for the best. We have been engaged for 2 years by wedding day and are just ready to be married and move along with our lives together.
