    I'm an October bride 馃グ I wouldn't say we're freaking out, but rather being alert, observant, and using wisdom to plan for the what if scenarios. This way, we'll be prepared either way. Happy planning!

    I鈥檓 a bit anxious about it, but trying not to panic. There鈥檚 7 months to go, so I鈥檓 praying that things improve by then. I feel so bad for those planning spring weddings, this is just so crazy!

    We鈥檙e 10/10 and I wouldn鈥檛 say panicking exactly, but I am anxious. We still have seven months which is a lot of time for the situation to change. We鈥檝e decided on what we鈥檒l do based on how bad things get and I am a little scared we鈥檒l have to use our worst case scenario married in the living room plan, but I think it鈥檚 important not to get ahead of myself.

    October 23 bride here. We are staying hopeful to continue as planned but are being cautious too. My dad has respiratory issues so trying to be extra careful. We might have to cancel spring family gatherings like Easter and birthday parties (we have a big family) until this all blows over.

    Our date is 10/31. I鈥檓 not panicking, but as others have mentioned, I鈥檓 being aware of the circumstances. My venue is in a county park, and they have suspended the use of their facilities, and while very few guests need to travel (and it is 4 hour drive), my godparents do and they are high risk and quarantined at home per their doctors orders. I鈥檓 ready to adjust plans if needed.

    I am, now. Hard not to be


    Push comes to shove, vendors have to be flexible and act in good faith if they want to keep business.
    Stay strong!

    10/10 here, being alert and monitoring the situation. The only thing I'm thinking might be impacted is bridal shower. My mom was initially thinking sometime in July with no date set in stone, so worst case we have it closer to the wedding. She is immunocompromised (lost her spleen) so if anything has to happen to protect her health, she takes priority.

    Hello October brides, I just faced the difficult decision of postponing our May wedding to October 1st. If it helps with the stress, our venue actually recommended for this fall, Sept to Oct. We were going to shoot for next May if we needed to, but venue/officiant felt comfortable for later this year. Hope this spreads positive vibes!

    No, I鈥檓 not concerned at all. There may have been a thought about it. My FH and I have decided we鈥檙e not waiting a day later than 10/24 to get married. If we have to cancel the big to-do then so be it, we鈥檒l schedule a celebration later on. But that鈥檚 our two cents. I generally refuse to freak-out about most anything that I can鈥檛 control. And I鈥檝e come to realize I can鈥檛 control much anyway.
