Family says we should postpone

My parents aren't practically happy with us getting married in June because of this Coronavirus situation, they literally say we need to postpone the wedding or lots of distant relatives won't be coming. My FH and me don't see the point as there are almost 3 months ahead and this is not the right time to jump to conclusions, but still our families are being reluctant about having the wedding in June. Are we being unreasonable and should we really postpone??

    I don’t think it’s unreasonable (yet) to kerp your wedding date. HOWEVER, come up with an April deadline to make a final decision, since you have guests traveling in.

    I moved my June to August... I just didn't want the stress anymore, nor all my guests stressed too. Ending the what ifs - at least for now - actually helped a lot. I say do what feels right, but it's easier to find a new date (with the same vendors) sooner than later.

    I don't think you are being unreasonable cause there is still time to decide and move the date if necessary. I really hope everything will be okay by June but you better decide in April whether you really should postpone. My colleague moved her May wedding to September and send her guests a slideshow she made via Smartshow3D to express how sorry she is. I am invited so I got it, too, and I can tell you that none of her guests was offended.

    I don't think you're being unreasonable, because none of us can predict where we will be in 3 months with this situation! One thing that would be good to do (and would hopefully put your families at ease) would be to just check in with your vendors and see how they are handling the situation. This would give you a plan forward, a good way to contact vendors if plans do change, and a deadline to let vendors know if you do get closer to your date and decide to postpone. Fingers crossed we're all past this mess by then!!

    There is still time to make your decision. The coming weeks will likely give a lot of information as to the direction this is all heading in.

    I’m still holding out hope and mine is May 24th ... I’m giving it to the middle of April before I make the decision. I have no one international tho mine are all here in the US. I would give it to May and then make a decision if their are people coming from overseas!! I’m praying you wedding goes off without any issues xoxoxo

    We are not postponing our end of June wedding yet, it seems to be far enough out to not worry too much. I spoke to all of our vendors, they are all confident all this will be (for the most part) long passed and they do have additional dates available if we would need to reschedule. Do what is best for you as a couple and as a family, if you feel it would be best to postpone then go for it, otherwise, I think the end of June/early July weddings will be fine.

    I think June is now iffy. Even if the government restrictions are lifted by then (should be), guests may still feel uncomfortable to travel—especially elderly or those needing to deal with planes/airports. I’d reconsider.

    Hi Marina! It's definitely a crazy time of stress and uncertainty for everyone! Right now it sounds like most couples are waiting a few more weeks before making any final decisions about their June Weddings, but being proactive about plan b might give you more peace of mind! Smiley heart
