Thank you for all the feedback on the ‘alternative wedding plans’ considering the ongoing pandemic. Great ideas! Here is what we decided to do: the venue Absolutely Refused to work with us on rescheduling, so rather than throw away $7K we are doing a micro-wedding at the venue with just our parents, siblings and our adult children. There will be about 18-20 of us in total. We are still doing all the things we had planned when were planning on having 120 guests, we just scaled it down: smaller cake, catering for 20, just 1 bartender instead of 2, still doing normal ceremony, first dance, toast, photographer/videographer, cake, dancing... all that jazz. Not having a DJ though so we will just plug our iPhone playlist into the venue sound system. We are super excited to Finally be getting married! And we are thinking of just now more of an informal celebration next year to take the place of the fancy reception - and then have all our guests attend. I hope all of you work it out to what's best for you and that you are both/all abundantly blessed! 🙏🏻😇💕🥂👰🏻👨🏻⚖️
No matter what, it’s going to be a fantastic day! It’s so frustrating when vendors won’t work with you, but I’m glad you’re making the best of it. We’re getting married the week after you, it’s getting closer!
I think that sounds like a great plan Angie!! I know this all has to be so heart-wrenching and difficult, but we've also seem some really incredibly poignant and special small wedding celebrations come out of this crazy time!
Your micro-wedding sounds wonderful, and it will still be so fun to celebrate with everyone once the coast is clear!!

Sneaking up fast (lol, not really though since we were supposed to get married back in May😝). So excited!! My Mom is here from NY. My daughters are coming up from Austin on Friday!💞. We were just having our morning coffee and discussing whether we should see each others vows before the ceremony. (He is worried mine will be super ‘fancy’ and poetic and his won’t measure up... so we may share them with each other in advance)... So excited! Only 2 more days away💕. Time to go do some Sunday brunch baking. Back with pictures to share in a few day!🎉👰🏻🤵🏻
