Late June Weddings- Postpone or Not?

Brittany, on April 1, 2020 at 9:04 PM Posted in Community Conversations 0 6

Hi All-

Our wedding is scheduled for June 26, 2020. Given everything going on with COVID19 and the uncertainty, what are you all doing? Sending invites and hoping for the best or rescheduling now and pushing it back a few months? I am very torn as to what I should be doing! If we reschedule, I don't even know when would be "safe" to postpone it too. Would love to hear if there are brides in the similar situation and what your plans are for this!

    Hi there! I was originally getting married May 8, and postponed to 01/29/21. If I were in your position, I would wait until the end of April to make the decision to postpone. It’s hard to tell in a month how things will be. I would feel safe September and later personally. But it’s all up in the air to totally play it safe. And I understand no one wants to postpone a whole year... I’ve cried much about it. Wishing the best for you and that you won’t have to postpone! Either way, I would reach out to your vendors to see if they are flexible if it comes to rescheduling. Good luck !

    Hi! I was set to be married on June 13th 2020, but here in MA we have a stay at home order until May 4th. I was afraid I would be pushing it and i was unsure if my guests would even feel comfortable attending. I ended up postponing until August 2nd 2020 with the hopes that everything will be back to normal by than! It is always good to reach out to your venue to have a back up date just in case and all your other vendors. Good luck!

    We're getting married June 18th and had already sent out our invites with the RSVP of May 18th. I figure by the middle of May we'll have a pretty good idea at how likely it is to have our original wedding we planned. However, if we have to have a small intimate backyard wedding on our original date, then that's what we will do and have a celebration at a later date! I'm excited to see what this summer brings after all the dust settles. Stay positive. Smiley heart

    We already send out our invites, so we decided that we want to wait until mid/end of April before making any decision on postponing. It's just to unpredictable at the moment. Sening you a hug!!

    June 14th bride here. We already sent out invites but unfortunately it's looking like June is cutting it close. At this point we feel like a lot of our out of town guests are not going to be comfortable traveling by then (ours is defnminely a mix of people from near and far). We're looking at a backup date end of August and need to make the decision soon before we lose the date. I've been trying to stay optimistic but now feeling like the right thing to do is push and give ourselves a little more time and hope things lighten up for our further away guests. Not an easy decision...I feel for everyone!

    Hi Brittany!

    This is definitely a crazy stressful and uncertain time for everyone! It seems like a lot of June brides are waiting a few more weeks before making postponement decisions, but everyone's situation is different and it never hurts to be proactive about plan b!

    You also aren't alone right now! ❤️ There are a ton of June brides also talking about their Covid-19 concerns in these discussions:

    June 2020 brides: freaking out?

    June and July Brides do not stress Covid-19!!!

    Stay positive and hang in there!!
