Ok, so now we have to have less then 10 people thanks to this virus. So we are live streaming wedding but using the same venue srill . So, do we still use a bridal party ? Since we wont have any guest ? What are some other ideas to do other then a bridal party ? I still want to do something other then exchange vows, but what? Our wedding is next Saturday and I'm more confused as ever now. The whole things been a huge mess for mess to begin with ! If you followed my post it's been one hell of a journey.

    Personally, if they can come, I'd still have a bridal party. Sure, it's going to seem like more of an elopement at this point since you won't physically see many people there, but that doesn't mean you can't make the most of it! It doesn't have to be simply over after the vows like having your first dance together.


    Make a day of your wedding and share it with them! Maybe there's some beautiful scenery nearby that you'd love to check out together and depending on how you're setting up streaming, you may very well be able to take your guests with you virtually.


    If you've still got vendors coming (like a DJ) use them to your advantage. Who wouldn't find a newly wed couple singing a sappy romance song or two to each other adorable? If not, don't be afraid to use your own devices both literally and figuratively.


    In the end, just focus on why your special day is so important - becoming united with the one you love - and making it memorable for the both of you. It really sucks that many won't be able to be there due to restrictions, but if you're able to, you could plan a party or celebration of sorts at a local venue or your house once all the Corona craziness has come to an end.

    My wedding is on april 18. My venue already cancelled on. Boy was i a mess. But both our parents were encouraging us not to change it. I kept telling him the only thing that matters is that we are married. Him and i don't live together. I worry that they will force us to stay home and i can't see him. It honestly is a lot to take, but once you accept the situation, you'll realize you can't wait. Whoever shows us, shows up. I am still having my bridesmaids (my little sisters). I am still wearing my beautiful dress, I tell him this virus has taken a lot from us. Lets not let it take our day too. We can't control the virus but we can control what we do.

    Our wedding is Saturday, 3/29.

    Our ceremony venue has not cancelled either...they actually have a large outdoor area we can utilize so everyone who is coming can have plenty of space to spread out. We are having only 10 as well.....but we each are still having 1 attendant as initially planned.

    We are livestreaming for everyone else to be able to see, and rather than postpone, we want to go ahead and say our vows. We're marrying each other, not a party. All the extra stuff we can reschedule, but we've waited so long we don't want to wait any longer. We're then having a small gathering at our house we just bought with with cupcakes, takeout and mimosas.

    It might not be your ideal, but do what feels good to you in these times. There's so much negativity and fear right now, sharing the love for each other is a nice change to that.

    I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this, Christine! It's a tough call to make. If your bridal party still wants to join and having them there doesn't put you above the 10 person limit, you could still do it. Since you're live streaming, you could ask all your viewing guests to post a selfie with your wedding hashtag as a virtual guestbook/photo booth that would make a fun and unique keepsake.

    Whatever you decide, wishing you a beautiful wedding day full of love! Smiley heart
