Yesss! We were supposed to have our destination wedding in Cancun. Decided to celebrate our one year anniversary there next year with everyone. We’re doing a small family and wedding party only ceremony in a beautiful garden in our hometown on October 16 this year 🤍
Me!! We had planned a Paris destination wedding for August that of course we had to cancel. So our Oct 16th wedding has been planned at the last minute. Thankfully, we found a resort that can handle almost everything but there are still so many details that need to get done quickly. Eek.... it's stressful but at the end of the day, we'll be married.
Originally scheduled for May 16 . Optimistically pushed to October 16 thinking "I wish we could do it sooner, but that's the first availability we can get". Am still surprised that here we are a month out and it still feels like such a hard decision to make. But ... we've started to get excited about things we never expected to think about (like our super cute bride and groom masks, the outpouring of love we got from all our guests when we had to send email after email with updates and check-ins on how they're feeling) .
As I tell my fiancé regularly, while we may not be having the dream wedding we originally planned, I still get to marry my dream man , and that's what really counts at the end of it all.
Best of luck to all of you feeling the wedding stress on top of the stress of everything else! You'll have some extra special memories of this day and it will be something that forever bonds us 2020 brides!
I'm super late to the party, but we did still marry on 10/16, however it was more elopement-style. It was just the two of us, no family or guests. We stayed at a rustic lodge/cabin in Upstate NY for the weekend, and had our private ceremony at a beautiful old castle a short distance away. It was an intimate and romantic affair. We were initially gung-ho about pushing through with our original plan, however it became pretty clear in July that given a good majority of our guests resided in "hot spot" states (Florida, Texas, NC, etc.), it was no longer a good idea. So we made the difficult, but necessary decision to postpone our wedding to 10/10/21. We were bummed at first, but the more we got to thinking about it, doing it this way allowed us 2 separate ways for celebrating our love.. Once by ourselves, and once with our family & friends next year, when things are hopefully much better than they are at the moment. I'm curious how things worked out for everyone else. I've heard a lot of people also postponed, but still had a small wedding with a few close family members and friends. Did anyone elope/marry without guests and postpone the big celebration like we did?
