Would love to hear from brides who are NOT postponing their 2020 weddings. Who are you, where are you and what are you doing?! In need of some positivity and encouragement as I am reading lots of posts of brides who have postponed

    Hi Mel,
    My name is Paola. I live in Central Florida area. My wedding will be Dec. 12,2020. I refuse to postpone since im really into even numbers and the date has a meaning not only to me but to my husband(yes, we got married last year and we are now doing our church wedding plus big reception). I have around 100 guests, around 80 have confirmed. Im staying positive!! I do believe everything will be fine by the end of the year 😁✨

    Im in ny. wedding is september. not postponing. unless theres an another complete lockdown, im moving forward with plans. if there is I will just do ceremony not dealing with stress of planning another year plus im not sure if there will be a vaccine next year. dont listen to other people do what u think is right. people are quick to tell u they would postpone if they were in your shoes but theyre not in your shoes. i especially dont take advice from anyone who already had their wedding or isnt even engaged. they dont know the stress until they actually deal with it

    Hey Mel!
    My name is Niki & I live in Plano, TX (near Dallas) & I’m getting married Aug 23, 2020. I had to postpone my May 23rd wedding & we’ve decided that we aren’t canceling or changing the date again - no matter what!

    We originally planned a large wedding at a beautiful venue. We’re keeping the venue & still invited everyone and if we have to scale back some bc of the pandemic, so be it. I don’t care if only 3 people show up. It’s not about the wedding. It’s about marrying the man of my dreams and starting a new chapter in our lives.
    I hope this helps lift your spirits. Just know that everything will work out the way it should. I wish you all the very best! ❤️

    I’m in NC. My date is 10/4. I already had a smaller wedding planned (about 50) so I’m moving forward. It’s mostly outside and an open barn area. We were going to have a bigger celebration later but we are now just inviting those guest to a zoom to watch.


    Agreed, you have to do what’s best for you guys.

    Hi dear! Sorry to hear you had to postpone earlier, but glad you are plugging along! I feel the exact same way- I don’t care if most people don’t show up! Thank you for your comment 💓

    Date and location twins! LOL. I feel the same, we are moving forward regardless. It definitely is stressful, especially with people who make you feel guilty for planning an event during a pandemic. I’m with you about the vaccine- I feel like people think things will magically be “normal” next year. Life will never be perfect so no sense in waiting. Thanks for your comment 💕

    Thanks Amy! I like the zoom idea- we have less than 100 guests but we may reduce it and ask others to join via zoom. 💖

    Hello! I am Jenn and I live near Atlanta, GA. We are having the wedding on 10/03 in the north Georgia mountains and will be having around 130 people (I imagine the number going down when people officially decide if they are coming or not). Will have to cut 20 people out from my original number too. I talked to my venue and they made me feel a lot better. They have a lot of safety procedures in plan that we will make aware to our guest.


    My fiancé and I would lose a lot of money from our vendors if we change the date and like it has been mentioned no one knows when the vaccine will be ready and distributed to people.

    Sept 12, 2020 wedding in Key West. We are NOT postponing and planning as normal unless it gets shutdown again. Bars being shut down doesn’t effect our venue so as long as we are there, we are getting married. We have a guest list of about 40 people who are confirmed! Good luck to you!!! 💖💖💖

    Our wedding date is 10.24.20 in a small town in Kentucky. And we are moving forward with our date unless told otherwise. I’m nervous and have had little breakdowns about it here and there. I’m thinking I’ll put a COVID disclaimer on our website but we’re not expecting more than 50 people there so it’ll be relatively small to begin with. I’m just hoping everything works out for every fall bride I know it’s been stressful

    I'm in Arizona. We are having a small, private ceremony and then the reception is October 24th. We always had it planned small... the invite list is 27 people. Half are from out of town, so we might end up with about 15 locals. But we agreed it is still on, even if it's just the two of us! 😄

    Hi! Getting married 9/26/2020 in Minnesota! We are going full steam ahead and inviting our whole 250 guest list. We have lots of room to social distance if we need to. Our ceremony is outside and our reception is inside of a large barn type venue. Good luck and happy planning!💗

    Hello! My name is Marissa and I'm getting married in California on 10/10/20! We've always wanted a small intimate wedding so we're inviting about 40 people all close family and friends. Our venue has been really optimistic which helps, so we're still planning as usual and we're going to our first cake tasting tomorrow!

    I live on the CA/NV and getting married in California. Wedding is 12/06/20 and we are getting married that day no matter what. If the venue shuts down again then we’ll get married on the beach just us and our families.
    If we have to lower our guest count, wear masks, and be socially distant we will. We want to get married but we will do what’s best for our guests.

    Ours Is October 17th In Virginia With 60 Guests. We Aren't Postponing And Have No Intentions To Do So Unless Our Venue Makes Us. Our Ceremony Is Outside In An English Garden And The Reception Is Indoors. We Haven't Had To Make Any Changes So Far. Some Brides Postpone Because They Don't Want The Stress Of Dealing With The Unknown-Which Is Understandable. Others Don't Have A Choice. I Think You Should Plan As Normal, And If Needed Once It Gets Closer Reassess The Situation And Decide What You Are For Sure Going To Do.

    I’m in VA and planning to have my wedding 8/9. I already postponed from May so I don’t plan to again. We just sent invites out to 125 people. I’m thinking maybe 90-100 will come. Va just went to phase three yesterday where events can have 250 people and we will continue to watch the situation. If we are forced to cancel the reception we will but we’re definitely still getting married that day.
