My fiancé and may be postponing our September wedding to 2021. My question to brides is if you’re postponing, are you legally marrying prior to your postponed reception or just waiting altogether? My fiancé and I have been together 9 years and are ready to tie the knot but still want the big reception we’ve planned on, even if it has to be next year. Do you feel like getting legally married prior to your big reception takes away from the specialness of the wedding reception with family and friends next year? Would you hold on saying your vows until the actual reception? I wouldn’t want to repeat them. What happens when the officiant says “I now pronounce you husband and wife” because you’re already husband and wife? Would you wear your wedding bands already and re-exchange them at the postponed ceremony/reception? How do you communicate that message to all of your guests that you’re marrying now but still want to celebrate with everyone next year, do you feel like they’ll be less inclined to come since they wouldn’t be witnessing your actual marriage? So many thoughts running through my mind on whether we want to tie the knot on our original Sept. day still or just wait for all of it til our postponed date. Would love to hear what others are doing!
