It can't be said, but all of us hope that everything gets well soon. Just avoid making any prior plans and wait for the situation to get normal. Try to stay positive and keep yourself healthy and safe.
I have the same date and I’m also a little worried! I’m hoping this mess clears up soon since we are taking serious precautions. I haven’t reached out to my venue or vendors, but I’ll wait until the 8 weeks is over to make our decision. This is so stressful and upsetting, but trying to stay positive and hopeful we can keep our date 🙏🏽
I think July weddings will be fine. My wedding is on 07/24/20 and We are proceeding with our date. I’ve checked with my venue and vendors every one is still on board. Of course we’ve discussed an unfortunate plan B which would be to post pone. Just continuing to remain positive and hope for the best, but I think we will all be fine. This is such a hard time for brides and couples I’m wishing everyone the best.
Our wedding is July 19th and I’m definitely stressing a lot. We are having it in Oregon, and have lots of family from Washington, so it’s very scary to think about someone getting sick. We are thinking about changing plans and having a small gathering of close friends and family and getting married in the next couple weeks and then just postponing a reception party till later in the year. We could invite a lot more friends and people then to have a big celebration instead of worrying about making sure everyone sanitized and no one is hugging or having contact. So so sad. As if planning a wedding wasn’t hard enough...ugh.
I don't think anyone, let alone the folks here are qualified to say whether or not this will pass by Junly Judging by the amount of couples who aren't postponing their March/April receptions, despite that going against the CDC guidelines, people aren't following the protocol which will make it outlast China's outbreak.
Stay informed, take it seriously, tell everyone to practice social distancing, keep getting tested if they think they have it, hope for a vaccine (the only thing that will allow us to truly let up on the distancing), find out what contingencies your vendors will work through (maybe not a refund, but will let you reschedule?) and come up with a backup plan for your own peace of mind. Stay calm! Wishing everyone luck!
My wedding is July 2nd. I’m trying not to get worried and remain calm. Just hoping this will die down by then but certainly holding off any making any additional purchases until the end of the month. By then I believe we may see/ have a better idea of how this might play out especially with states getting stricter in their guidelines
To the folks who are thinking this will be "fine" by July, optimism is good, but I think you should be mentally preparing yourself that it will not be okay. The virus is out there. The social distancing measures we're all taking right now are intended to keep too many people from getting sick at one time so that our hospitals aren't hopelessly overloaded. Even if we all do our part to "flatten the curve," this doesn't mean that people will stop getting sick. People will just be getting sick more slowly. If we stop the social distancing, the infections will balloon again. I have a hard time believing that what we're doing now is sustainable, but maybe it will have to be until a vaccine is developed, or enough people have developed immunity (which we don't know is even possible at this point) so that herd immunity naturally decreases the spread.
All of this is to say: keep those Plan B's in mind. And know that if you have to postpone, you might be looking at dates well into 2021 because of all of the March/April/May/June weddings that have postponed too.
I'm going to be honest with you... I'm freaking out about my June 13th, 2020 date right now. My venue reached out last night about possibly rescheduling and it ripped my heart out. Some are estimating this might peak in summer, which means July is out of the picture too. I think it is too early to make decisions. People postponing until later in the summer might still be out of luck. Note for those already married on these threads: I've seen some of your comments on posts, and they are really insensitive. You have no idea what 2020 brides and grooms are going through right now. You can imagine, yes, but the turmoil and heartbreak is devastating. Please refrain from giving snarky comments at this time.
Please don't spread misinformation. The virus has infected people across the globe, INCLUDING countries that are hot and humid right now, like Australia. We just do not yet know whether the virus will slow down in the summer.
