Postponed Wedding Ideas

Hello all!


I’m looking for some ideas on what to do for our rescheduled wedding day, which is now in late September. We originally postponed everything, but then decided to get married on our original date anyway. We had a small outdoor ceremony with close family, and it ended up being more beautiful than I even imagined. So much so, that we don’t really feel the need to “redo” our ceremony; we also don’t know what restrictions the church we originally reserved would have, if they even have our new date available (they are part of a college, and the church may be used for events that are still being rescheduled).


At this point, my husband (!) and I are leaning towards just having the reception, and maybe just going somewhere cool beforehand to take photos, but are looking for input on how to best make use of the vendors time (such as the videographer, who we have for 10 hours, but has no ceremony to record now).


Any and all ideas are welcome! Smiley smile

    Just do a reception. It will still be fun and having a photo booth for fun pictures will be a way to involve those who were unable to attend. There is no need to stress over the reception. You could honestly do more a bbq styled event.

    You could capture a lot with 10 hours! I would say have them there for getting ready, exchange notes or whatever between you and your spouse, take time to do a first look or at a first touch. If you do the first look you could get photos before and some during the reception.

    Take advantage of getting as many photos of and with guests as possible! And have a party!

    I totally agree! Max out that photo & video time with getting ready footage, an extended couples session, and you can capture exchanging gifts or notes or your first look!

    You also definitely don't have to "re-do" the ceremony, just have your reception and celebrate! ❤️

    And honestly just take time to really enjoy the day and your guests! Weddings can go by so fast and be filled with so many “events”

    You guys can do a location shot where you can shoot during these times. And pics at the reception. Plenty of photos with guests.
    I’m trying to figure what to do with our 8 hr photography session with 5 people this Oct.
    Probably going to shoot at our university we both graduated from, church where ceremony is going to be performed, pictures with parents, and probably our small dinner. And then call it a day. Not sure if we going to use up our hours!
