Hi and all my love to my other postponing brides! I was just wondering if anyone was still getting married on their original date, even though they are planning to have their normal wedding as planned later on. My FH and I want to get legally married on our original date (May 23rd) even though we have postponed the actual wedding to September. This much we know.
What we weren't sure about is what this would look like in May. A month from now there is a chance that at least our parents, siblings and officiant could gather, even with masks (so max 10 people total), but if not possible safely, then we could just do it all be zoom, which they have made possible now in NY. Either way - we weren't sure if we should invite other family/close friends to the zoom? Should anyone give a speech - maybe someone who wasn't going to speak at the main wedding? What should we wear? Or should we just fully elope and not tell anyone so that it doesn't take away from September at all?
Let me know if anyone is doing anything similar or has any advice! I know it's very minor in the scheme of things, but I think it might bring us some joy on a day that otherwise might be sad. On the other hand, if things can go on as planned in September, maybe I should just be patient?
