Y’all I’m heartbroken. I had to postpone my wedding until June of 2021. I’m so upset! Did anyone else have to postpone due to COVID? How are you handling it?? I’m so sorry to anyone who is also going through this.
We just decided 2 days ago to postpone our July 18 wedding out to next next July. It's definitely a disappointment, and frustrating.
We're trying to look at it in the positive light of, we're going to pay all our vendors as originally planned over the next few months, and then next year it will feel like the wedding was free!
Plus, we'd already decided that if we did have to postpone, then we were still getting married this year. So there is a bit of stress on that now, as we are looking at two plan options for a smaller wedding, based on the group size restrictions at that time (plan B, 10 people max; plan C, 30 people max).

Yeah. I’m trying to stay as positive as possible. Like paying of vendors easier. Having more time to get details organized. And I just recently started my weight loss journey so another year of that. But my fiancé and I talked about eloping on our anniversary in August and doing a ceremony and reception next summer. It’s just hard to accept still
Yup, so many March, April, May brides have postponed (and more to come I'm sure). You are not alone!
I'm handling it well I think. I was more upset and just so anxious about getting everything reset. Now that that's done, I am waiting again as I had pretty much everything planned. I was sad on my original wedding date but we had a fun time having a nice dinner and cake at home. Now I'm looking forward to the new date even if fewer people can make it and I am resigned to that. I will admit wedding planning and the wedding has lost some of its appeal and I am not as excited as I was but I'm getting there! This pandemic has made things gloomy in general so I'm chalking it up to that.
Yes honey, right there with you. We postponed for September but I'm too prideful to change my wedding date on anything as of yet. Plus I don't want to see that countdown number jump back up 100 days plus. I know petty. But I am strong headed on getting married on my original day so we can have an anniversary date for the summer since we are teachers and would never be able to "vacation" in September. But like others have said, most vendors will be paid off early and we can start adding back to our savings to start off our future. So pros and cons with this whole thing. So, we take it with a grain of salt and life goes on!

I cried when I watched the countdown jump from 50 to 400+ days. We pushed back a year to next June because we are also both teachers and that’s really the only time considering my fiancé and I are the ones out of state and we will be traveling back to Oregon to get married
Hi Molly, I sympathize with you! I also had to postpone my June 2020 wedding to 2021. It was such a hard reality to face and I know it can seem like the people around you don’t fully understand the emotional toll it takes. Please remember that you are not alone, all of us 2020 brides must stick together! We can and will get through this crazy uncertain time and in the end will have the most amazing stories to tell our future generations! I keep picturing how joyful it will be to finally celebrate with all my loved ones and how much more special it will feel after being apart.
