How are my September brides feeling??

Emma, on April 17, 2020 at 3:34 PM Posted in Community Conversations 2 19
My wedding is supposed to be 9/3/2020. I want to be hopeful but also prepared to change everything. If we need to change things, we are thinking of having a ceremony with just parents and siblings and have a reception at a later date when it's safe for everybody to come. I'm not sure at what point do we need to make a final decision. How are you all feeling about your September date?

    Hi, My wedding is 09/05. We are thinking the same. At this point, even if everything returns to "normal", we are far behind with the preparations, financially affected and we do not believe that it is the best time to spend our savings. We want to do a family and intimate ceremony.

    Already postponed from April to September and my venue had no other dates for 2020 available and if I postponed to 2021 I would incur a fee.

    At this point, I am hoping that we can at least have our wedding/reception even with fewer guests.

    I am not very worried. I think by September things will get better. I think it depends on your state and where you live. We are in larger town but very spread out so few cases here. I am very confident things will get better by then.

    Sept. 26th here and I am remaining hopeful! If we do have to postpone, we will try to get a Spring 2021 date.

    Hey my wedding is in October and my fiancé and I were thinking about doing the same thing with just family. I’m praying that this will soon be over. I’ve been real emotional about it too. It took so much time and money to plan and we’re not even done. But I’m going to be optimistic about it 🙂. As long as you marry the love of your life that is what most important! Stay safe!

    We postponed our April wedding to September so hopefully it will all be fine. I would hate to have to push it back even further.

    I’m 9/6. We are hoping things will be okay by then. It will truly depend how summer plays out.

    I’m September 6th. I’m feeling hopeful but still watching closely. My wedding is going to be 50 or less guests so that’s why I’m not thinking about postponing just yet.

    September 5th here. After a long and emotional conversation with my fiance, we've decided to march on and hope for the best. However, we have reached out to our wedding planner to see what we should prepare for IF we were forced to postpone. I think it's so important to talk with your fiance to see how they're feeling. A talk can really put things into perspective of what's important. I was (and still am) a complete wreck. He's calm and collective. I wanted to postpone. He's headstrong on continuing. In the end, all I want to do is marry my best friend and all the other details pale in comparison to that. Who's to say that in a month or two the world will answer back with "No, you can't do this right now" ... and if that's our reality, then so be it. But until that day comes, we'll fight on. Sending love and light to all of my fellow Corona brides. We got this!

    9/6 wedding - we’re pretty unsure about it all. Our wedding would be ~125 people & a lot of them would be traveling to our wedding from out of state. Our biggest concern is, even if things open back up, will people be comfortable @ our wedding? Will people have to wear masks? Will they have to be 6ft apart? So we are planning on an elopement with just our immediate family. We still have not worked out things with our vendors/venue. We’re talking with our planner next week. Hopeful we can use some of vendors for our elopement & do it on the same date.

    Sept 12 here, remaining very positive! Waiting to order invitations until after June 1 (WNY isn’t opening back up until may 30) then we will know a little bit more. If I have to wait on formal invitations, that’s alright too! It’s nice there is a little leeway with these little things! Staying positive!!😊

    We are postponing our September 6 2020 wedding. 80% of our guests are traveling from out of town and we have a very large family so an intimate ceremony is not possible. Luckily it’s early enough to still book almost all our same vendors for May 2021. We are planning to postpone and pray for the best. So tough to make these decisions on the unknown! Good luck everyone

    We have decided to keep our original date, but reduce our guest count by 80% because all signs are pointing towards this not being back to normal by fall. I think the only options right now are downsize or postpone, and waiting to act now just puts you at the back of the line for next year.

    My wedding is 9/26/2020 - we are waiting on postponing. We are also waiting on buying any personalized items with the date on them. If all else fails and we do need to postpone, we will still be having the ceremony on 9/26 with immediate family. We plan on waiting to go that route until early August. I am definitely nervous and the planning is such a hard process during all of this but I am thankful for my healthy family and friends.

    If we do end up postponing we will have a 1 year reception.

    We are 9/5/2020 and are very unsure at the moment (in WA state). Right now, outdoor gatherings are allowed up to 100 people, but you must wear face masks, social distance, and sanitize everything after use. I heard dancing may not be allowed, or if so - it would have to be 6 feet apart unless you're a couple.

    We are still waiting, but at this point I don't see how much will change from then till now. Things are starting to slowly open up, but I don't see how they can't permit face masks and social distancing by then.

    We are thinking of having a smaller wedding/glorified party in my parents backyard and waiting until next year to do a big celebration.

    3/5 of my fiances groomsmen may not even come because of family with low immunities/babies at home.

    It's all heartbreaking and so frustrating.
