Hey all! I think I just need some advice here. I have read the horrors of many of you having to cancel or postpone your wedding and I can’t imagine what you are going through! To sound like a toddler, it’s not fair! With that being said, I was wondering what some of the May brides are thinking and doing? Our day is planned for 5/16/2020 with about 150 guest anticipated. Many of whom will be traveling, my fiancé mother and brother included. I am currently stuck on what to do? Should I contact vendors and see about postponing or do we just sit and hope that this is all over before then? Thoughts? Much love and support to all. ❤️
I’m getting married May 9 and as of now we plan on going ahead with it. We have a lot of out of town guests so I’m expecting quite a bit not to show up . But none of my vendors nor venue has said anything about canceling, so I’m hoping it’ll all calm down by then. Our honeymoon is in Iceland leaving May 11 so I’m praying the travel ban will be lifted by then and the world back to normal
We are 5/16 and as of right now planning to go ahead with it. I did just receive the heart breaking, crushing news that my bestie who was to be our co-officiant and lives in New Zealand will not be able to come 😭😭😭 Not because of her but because Air New Zealand is suspending all flights to the US through at least the end of June. I can’t even focus at work today. I hope all will be well by the wedding day. We just met with our venue on Thursday and we are a go from that end. Hugs to everyone! Karen
Mine is May 24th. I am supposed to send my invitations in less than two weeks. We are going to see how the next few weeks go before we make any decisions. How are vendors handling their April weddings, are they being flexible with changes, what are the options. Hopefully we will have more info in the coming weeks.
I’m also 5/16. Our state put an actual ban (different from the CDC recommendation) on events more than 50 for 8 weeks from today. That would put us at 5/11. We invited 200.
My venue says they canceled all events within the next 30 days but that she’s confident everything will be fine by my date... I feel like that’s cutting it pretty close... I’mnot sure what to do! We have a backup date of 8/2, but one that’s a Sunday (no Saturdays left not surprisingly) and two what if this is all okay for a bit after the ban is lifted (I.e. our original date) but then it comes back again and I find myself in the same position come August! This is so stressful!! This should be a happy time for all of us but instead it’s rather sad and frustrating.
We were planned for a 300 person wedding on 5/9/2020, invites were supposed to go out yesterday. We made the decision to cancel Sunday night and already have in completely rescheduled for April 2021. We are bummed that we have to wait a year but we are getting married in Philadelphia. So we didn't want to do October / November because its the most popular wedding month and all of the good vendors are taken. We didn't want to get married around the holidays and we didn't want to get married when the Philly Sludge (disgusting snow and filth) was on the ground haha so we are waiting to get the Dream Wedding. Good luck!!!!! I hope you are able to have your special day just as you dreamed.
I think you should start looking at contingency plans. They're saying we might not see peak numbers of outbreaks for another 45 days, and California is expecting to keep schools closed for the rest of the school year (end of May/early June).
