    Heck to the no for us too!! We have already postponed twice because of the pandemic, and there is no way we are doing it again! We thought for sure after we postponed an entire year the first time that everything would be better by then. Ha! Joke was on us! So we postpone another year in hopes we will be able to move forward with our dream wedding as planned. If it doesn’t work out this time, we are getting married that day no matter what!

    Another vote for no. Unless one of us gets it and is stuck in isolation we are going ahead.

    We've postponed once, and unfortunately, I don't think our venue or other vendors would allow us to postpone again unless we went back into a full lockdown, and seeing as how cases are off the chain ridiculous right now - the highest they've ever been in our country, and we haven't gone into lockdown yet so it doesn't look like we will (fingers crossed). Omicron variant is said to peak here about a month before our wedding, so I am just praying it eases off and we won't lose half our guests. There's nothing you can really do if we do - we're treating it like the weather - hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

    No, we are not postponing. However, we have decided to trim our guest list down to family and friends we consider family. I would agree to ask guests to mask up or even consider having testing on-site for all.

    Hi - so I did not postpone - but I cancelled the large event to downsize to outdoors. I went from the fancy hotel venue to a backyard affair. I am trying to keep some of the elements that were important to me - for example we are giving up a dance floor and the band I wanted so badly... due to space- but I am still having a soloist for the ceremony and cocktail hour. I feel more comfortable that we are going to be outside and I have come around to having a plan B.

    I have had to downsize from 100 guests to 40 guests - but they are the 40 closest to us so we will have a good day!

    One issue that forced our hand was our venue was requiring proof of vaccination to enter the facility. I know everyone has different views on this- so I am sorry if I offend someone - but I would rather encourage PCR tests prior to the wedding and will have some antigen tests on hand for those that cannot get a PCR test. With as many vaccinated people getting this virus - I think the line should be drawn at testing not requiring proof etc... Sorry that is my ramble.

    Also - this may have been unnecessary since maybe things will be changed in June - but I wanted to have an alternate plan so I could stop stressing!

    Best of luck- with your decision - do what works for you - and I am sure it will be beautiful and a great day.

    We don’t plan to cancel. Our wedding is a small group anyways but even if no one can come or whatever, him and I are still getting married. Y’all are the only two that truly count.

    I had to postpone my wedding twice because of Covid. Under different circumstances, I’d be coming in my second anniversary this April instead of only three months next weekend. It was a difficult and heartbreaking decision, but my husband and I knew it was the only way if we wanted to preserve even a shred of the wedding we had planned. In the end, you have to do what’s right for you. Your guests will understand. The ones who care the most will wait it out with you.

    I really hope we don't have to. Our original wedding date was 12/31/2021, which we postponed to 12/31/2022 back in August. Our plan is to require everyone to be vaccinated and provide rapid tests to everyone the morning of the wedding, as well as masks for those who want them. Really hoping that 12 months from now covid won't still be raging on. If the county our venue is in puts restrictions on indoor gatherings, we'll probably just cut our losses and elope. We'll have been engaged for 3 and 1/2 years by the time we get married, almost as long as we dated

    I reallyyy don't want to postpone, as most of our vendors and venue are set, but we might have to downsize our guestlist. We were planning on 150, might have to be around 100, not sure yet. Smiley cry

    We have decided we are not postponing. We have a small guest list (50). We know that all but 2 of our guests have been vaccinated and boosted. Since that doesn’t really matter as far as spread, our guests can decide for themselves whether they want to attend and/or mask up. This thing is not going away, so we have to learn to live around it & people know what they are comfortable with now. Unless there is a major shift that causes our venue to shut down, we’ll be moving forward.
