I’m really starting to go crazy because idk if we will have to reschedule our wedding or not and I don’t want to. Also I’m getting soooooo tired of everyone asking me is our wedding still on. I feel like if it wasn’t we would let ppl know duhhhh. Plus our venu The Villa in Calverton, MD hasn’t been answering the phone for the past few weeks. I’m going crazy. What are you guys doing about your wedding??

    So, my fiance and I are supposed to get married on 10/2 in PA but Gov. Wolf just came out with new restrictions saying indoor events are limited to 25 people so we are looking to postpone the big celebration to next year and still get married in the church that we met this year. Aside from health concerns, we fell in love with our venue for the indoor facilities and those just aren't an option for us at this point. Best of luck with yours, I'm here for ya.

    That's concerning they haven't been answering the phones. Do you have an email or a direct contact, finding them on facebook/linkedin( aka going full stalker mode lol) ? We have decided to postpone ours in October. We were going to wait till early August to make the call but its becoming apparent things aren't improving in the US. Many of our younger guests were still gungho on going but we have older parents, passport issues, international travel restrictions etc. Its exhausting thinking about! Luckily our vendors made it super easy to change. Good luck, talk to your VIP guests and get their take if you are having trouble deciding.

    We have postponed ours to Fall of 2021. It just doesn’t look like enough of the restrictions will be lifted in time to have the wedding I had envisioned by this autumn.

    We are still on for 10/31 as of right now. I’m on regular contact with my venue and keeping an eye on the state requirements as we move forward.

    We made an early decision to postpone our October 2020 wedding to October 2021. We are so happy that we did. Nevada is now peaking with cases and we may be going back to phase 1 soon. All the uncertainty was driving us crazy and the thought of having to reduce the guest list, social distance and wears masks is not the wedding we envision. We’ve been together since 2011, another year won’t hurt.


    I’d be concerned that they aren’t answering. Do you love beer by to where you can go see if they are there or have any signs up on their status?

    I feel your pain... my wedding is 9/13/20 the venue did reach out to us and they said we didn’t need to reschedule and they will be able to host our wedding as planned! But it’s the people who will irk you to death.... So now we have to worry about who’s scared to come or not and then... not to mention we can’t even get our money back😫😫😫

    Hey hey! Crazy, my venue is also The Villa! I actually just had my planning and tasting appointment with them today. The best way to reach them seems to be via email. I’ve been in constant contact with my planning executive for my October wedding, via email.

    Ugh I’m sorry your venue isn’t being responsive.

    I totally feel your anxiety about whether to postpone or not. We just confirmed postponing our 10/24/2020 wedding to 10/10/2021 on Tuesday. For us it came down to whether we would be ok with massive restrictions, which are inevitable until there’s a vaccine available (huge cut in guest count, masks, social distance, no dance floor). We were just not ok with that given the amount of money we’re spending and wanting the wedding we’ve been envisioning for years now. I feel much better now that it’s been confirmed. I’m honestly still nervous about where we will be with all of this next year, but there’s a lot more hope that we won’t be in the same situation we’re in now. Wishing you the best in whatever decision you make that works best for you!

    Hey fellow Marylander!

    A friend of mine is still keeping her 10/24/2020 date as of right now in Annapolis. Thankfully due to some unforeseen budget issues, they had already found a smaller venue and cut their list from 80 to 20 back in February. After the ceremony the plan was for all of us to have a luncheon at a local restaurant, but that seems up in the air now.

    She has a Plan B in place to further cut the guest list for the ceremony, provide live streaming options, and cut the luncheon if needed and have a party with everyone next year.

    We were originally suppose to get married this May, postponed for November, and now postponed again for November 2021. All of the back an forth and unknowns were making us unable to be excited about our wedding! Make sure you do what works best for you and your immediate VIP guests. For us, it has been a huge relief to not have to worry about the what if’s around getting married in 2020 anymore. Good luck!!

    Were still on for August 23! Whoever come, come... whoever dont, dont! If people can go out to Walmart, Target and all these other places FULL OF PEOPLE then I dont see an issue with coming to a wedding. People will choose whats important to them.. so Im not changing anything.. Just told them to come with their Masks and have a seat, lol.

    I feel your pain. We are still planning on getting married on Oct 10th but may have to switch to our plan B. I feel so bad for my fiance as I've been married before but he has not. We will get married that day but our reception maybe a lot smaller and much different than we had planned. I hope your venue reaches out to you soon! Good luck to all of us 2020 brides!!

    We are still on for 10/10/2020. We are getting married on the date regardless. We’ve been engaged 5 years, just finished college. I’m not pausing our lives for this. I’ve contacted all our vendors and they are all a go. Luckily we are in Missouri and have no restrictions. Many Illinois couples have decided to move there weddings to Missouri to avoid all the restrictions.
