I know people have had to move their wedding date due to the pandemic. Did you move your date up or push it off?

    It’s been such a hard 2 weeks! Technically we are doing both... our wedding was scheduled for April 11. Our state officially forced the venues to close until the middle of May. We are getting legally married in a family only ceremony this coming Friday. We pushed back the big ceremony and reception to June 8.

    We had no choice but to reschedule ours. New date is 7/20 but we are going to get married on our original date. We spent a year and a half planning and are ready to be married.

    Our original date is May 16th. We're still holding out hope that it will stil happen on that date, but we are also looking into a backup date for rescheduling if needed. We're looking at dates in July, August or October.

    We were scheduled to get married on May 23 but pushed it to August 14. While I'm ready to be married, we decided in the grand scheme of things, delaying 83 days isn't the worst thing in the world. We can wait a few more weeks. Praying it all blows over by August.

    We pushed our date off. It was supposed to be May 9th. Instead we decided we're going to go to the courthouse to get married once they re-open. Then later in the summer or autumn we are going to host a celebration of our marriage with local guests instead of a vow/renewal and reception. We originally wanted a smaller wedding (it grew, as these things do) and so we're trying to look on the bright side and see it as a chance to have that again due to this coronavirus.

    We are getting married on June 7th with 200 people or 4 people. If my venue will postpone without any fees and let me move from a Sunday to a Friday, then I will do that. But from our last convo and the details of my contract it doesn't look like it. My fiance' and I are both teachers. We went with Sunday in June because the price was 130% cheaper and we are off for the summer. Getting married on a Sunday during school months just doesn't work for us. We both coach on the weekends and are committed to our students and athletes. I have never missed a day of work for personal reasons and have never missed a game for my athletes. We have a couple of Friday's and Monday's off during that time but it just still realistically doesn't work for us.... oi vey!

    The world needs more teachers like you!! You both sound incredible and I feel you, we only are planning a 40 person wedding but we are prepared to cut it to parents, siblings, pastor, and photographer only if this is still going on in July (exactly 10 people, social distancing, making sure we have optional masks to give everyone). If it gets to that at least it will be an interesting album to show our kids one day lol, have to think on the bright side! Smiley star Good luck with everything!!

    We postponed our June 27 wedding to December 12th 2020. We are having 150 and didn't know/want to chance if group size restrictions would still be in place at that time. It's basically a domestic destination wedding where 100% of guests (and ourselves) will be traveling from out of town and it just didn't feel quite safe/normal enough yet. If we were having a smaller local wedding with few out of town guest's we would probably have kept our date.

    I am in Waukesha, Wisconsin. We were able to go to the courthouse and get our wedding license last week. We will be getting married in a small ceremony on Saturday.

    My wedding isnt until Nov 2020 however I am still thinking about pushing it back because times are so uncertain until we have a vaccine. Im thinking of pushing mine back to Jan or Feb 2021.

    its tough but I am at my wits end trying to think of what I should do.

    I hope it works for you! I work at a college and part of the reason I love our May 30th date is that time of year is both my favorite time of year and really slow at work because it is right after graduation but before K-12 schools let out and things get busy for the summer. I loved the idea of having our wedding during then, because not only would it be a great time for the wedding itself but it would also enable us to meaningfully celebrate our anniversary every year.

    Thank you for being awesome teachers and coaches. It's such an underrated profession but you all do the most amazing and important work!
