Hi fellow October brides!
Our wedding date is October 30th in Tucson Arizona and I’m already super nervous about having to postpone. I’m not sure if there will be a group number limit by that time. We’re inviting at least 200 people.
How is everyone feeling? Has anyone already postpone? What’s everyone’s plan of attack?

    I moved March 28, 2020 to October 31, 2020. I'm trying to wait til July before I start worrying.


    I have a weird plan B floating around.I don't really want to postpone again.

    We plan to get married in 2021 but who knows, maybe there would be another outbreak. We still can't book a photographer and videographer as people can't say for sure, whether they will be working by then, so maybe we'll have to use Smartshow 3d to create the video about our wedding, haha! Still, I think that having plan B is a wise decision!

    October 23rd in Wisconsin. We have a guest list of about 150. We are cutting our guest list and sre willing to have 50 need be. My venue is hopeful we can still have our wedding but cant guarantee it. We arent postponing. The only way we arent having it is if our wedding cancels it. Weve already been engaged 3 years and want to be married already. Im hopeful and very worried. Im in that weirs limbo of do i keep planning our wedding or not??

    My wedding is on October 3rd, 2020 and I am not planning on postponing as of yet. I am a bit nervous because I plan on inviting about 150 guests but I'll just need to think of a plan B just in case. Hopefully the next few weeks/month will tell us what will be acceptable and safe!

    10/17 Here And We have No Plans On Rescheduling Right Now Unless We ABSOLUTELY Have To. That Being Said, Our Guestlist Is Only 60 People So That Differs Between Yours. I Think If Anything You Would Have To Cut The List To 50 People If You Still Wanted To Have It That Day. Just Start Making A Plan B Just In Case Smiley smile Goodluck!

    10/24/2020 here. I have a feeling we might be okay but I think I’ll have to downsize. I planned initially 150 guests but I would be so happy if I have to only invite like 50 lol. The only thing would be if I would get my money back cuz I’ve already made payment...as of now I am not going to make any decisions until late July to decide but it’s also dependent on my venue.


    I’m still planning as usual. I have like 90% of it done. I can’t do the rest until I have an idea how many guests I would have like invites and seating charts. I still have flower centerpieces to work on.

    We just spoke to our planner and she said not to consider postponing at this point. We've invited 65 guests, so we could easily downsize or socially distance if need be. But we're moving forward as planned!

    Same here. We postponed to Dec. 11, 2020 and I really don’t want to postpone again. We’re on Long Island and so far only meet like 2 of the 7 points needed to start phase 1 opening. I’m getting anxiety.

    Our wedding is October 16th! We haven't postponed anything, we were slightly nervous at first but are too far in with everything paid to change the date lol so we are just going for it! The only thing we kind of expect is that not as many people may show that we anticipated, but I think late October should be fine! Maybe just come up with a backup plan for not as many guest is all I would suggest.

    October 9th, we haven't postponed yet but I'm starting to get anxious. I talked to my mom and she said wait it out but I don't want to wait too long to postpone.

    My Wedding date was May 2nd and I had to postpone it to Oct 16th...so things better be back to normal by then because I don't think I could go through that again!

    The wedding venue made everyone who had to postpone keep it in the same calendar year so it was stressful trying to find a date all the original vendors could do it. The vendors were all pretty amazing about trying to make it work out though. The cake person already had a wedding that day in Oct but said she would still do it if that was the date everyone else could. The 2 ladies doing the string music for my ceremony are actually taking off work to play at my wedding since the new date is a Friday instead of a Saturday, I was speechless!

    I live in Charleston SC and restrictions are already starting to be lifted here, restaurants opened back up this week as well as the beaches and you can gather with friends again. Things should be back to normal by end of summer here but we weren't hit hard by the virus the way some other places were...

    I am right there in the same boat as you! Mine is a day after yours and my FH is all "we are good! Don't worry". Yeah, I am very worried lol Our wedding is in Las Vegas and it was at first 170 people but now we dropped it to 95. I called our venue they said don't worry about it now, we will see you in June or July and then go over everything! So we made a plan B and said alright if we can't have the big wedding we go to the courthouse and get married with our parents there and siblings on our date instead. Then later we can celebrate! So maybe a plan B might be helpful for you?? We got this!! I am still planning and moving forward as if nothing has changed. What's on your list?? How much planning do you have left?? What have you done so far??

    We are not postponing our October 3rd date. Our venue is my future in-laws' back yard so we are okay on venue but we are considering dropping the guest list from 150-50. It'll be in Maryland and we are just waiting to see if there will be any gathering restrictions. Hoping for the best for all October brides!

    October 11 bride!


    I’m worried about the venue going out of business and not having a place to have our wedding at all. My fiancé and I have a back up plan if we are not able to have our wedding. We plan on getting married October 11 at the court house if there are restrictions and we have have our reception when things are okay again. Our guest list is about 200 max.

    I was in absolute panic mode for our Halloween wedding but I have kept tabs on Virginia's reoppening plan and I just need them to get to phase 3, which is expected in early/mid July. That gives me plenty of time even if they slow down because of some rebound. I'm sending invitations in early August so we will know if we are inviting all 75 people or squeezing down to 50 (social event limit for Phase 2 in VA). Trying to stay calm that everything will be alright.

    I am trying not to stress out about my 10/24 date at this point, but my FH is the optimist out of the two of us.

    Our original invite list is around 157 people and at this point, I'm hoping that we'll just have a smaller wedding because not everyone will be able to make it. (We have several international invites who are essentially virtual no's at this point and are assuming fewer will travel.) Both of our venues book out over a year in advance and I really do not want to reschedule.... I also was hoping to get married last year but life circumstances prevented it, so I'm ready to just be married already, dammit!

    My biggest fear is that my FH and I don't see eye-to-eye on our back-up plan. I would rather take our photographer and do a mountain elopement on our date (we live in Colorado) but he would rather do a small gathering in his mother's backyard, which overlooks an elementary school parking lot. So at this point, I am super hoping that we can proceed as planned.

    Were October 25th and trying to remain hopeful. We have a guest list of 110 but understand we may need to cut down and as my fiance says at least we'll save money 🤷‍♀️ lol.
