I know many of you, like myself, have needed to postpone the big wedding and reception. Personally, we were originally going to get married in August, but are now postponed to September 2021. Due to a close family member likely not surviving to our new September 2021 date, we are still going to "elope" with immediate family on our original date in August so that I can have photos with her to cherish.
My question is: since we will technically be married on our August 2020 date, do we still have our bachelor/bachelorette parties and wedding shower? It is not so much a "money grab" but these events were something we were looking forward to since it will be one of the rare occasion where both people from both my FH's family and my family are together, as we usually only go to one family or the other on holidays.
We have polled some of our family and it seems like the general consensus is that people feel like we shouldn't lose out on these events because of the pandemic.
What are others doing who are getting legally married on the original date, but still planning on having the big party later on? Are you still doing any of the traditional pre-wedding events?
