We finally made the call. We’re postponing our reception from June 13 to sometime next June. Others who have made the same call, how are you coping? I am so sad some of the time, and totally fine other times. I feel like I’m processing the death of a loved one. Is that normal?

    Praying for you and hope you find peace in your decision and can get excited to keep planning for your big celebration next year. At this point we have not changed anything, still holding on to hope. We are set to have our wedding and reception on July 17th. We are having under 50 guests so I am trying to hold on to hope that it is still possible! Sending love your way!Smiley heart

    All the emotions is definitely normal. Our original date was March 21 and that has come and gone. Me and the FH spent days crying with each other and mourning like a loss. I think its healthy to go through these emotions and process them. We are still holding out for June 13th, we are having it in Los Angeles.
    Stay positive which is hard to do but if you need to cry , yell, shout then do it.

    Hey, former date twin! I totally get it. I feel like this month is going to be really rough. I had a moment earlier this week where I woke up angry and upset over the fact that we had to move the wedding, and it took me a while to get over it. Today's main thing is I've had several people at work asking me about the wedding, and it's putting me in a weird place. At this point it's just one day at a time.

    We also postponed to next year and I can honestly say I have been through the five stages of grief over it. Still teetering between depression and acceptance. Sometimes I feel totally okay and even grateful, and then sometimes I just break down crying. It's all so hard and so unfortunate. Whatever you're feeling is totally natural and justified. We'll get through this!

    Totally normal to be grieving the loss of something so important. We have to cancel as well but unfortunately cannot even schedule an event for the same time next year because our venue is already booked, so we have to push our spring wedding back into the middle of the summer. We currently don't have anything set, so that's worry some, but I've known it wasn't going to happen for the past month or so and I've just started to accept it. So, it will get a bit better over time, but it still sucks.

    I had to move mine from May 17 until next March. I am relieved that the decision was made and I could move on but I am bummed. I realize though that there is so much more important stuff going on plus I feel like we will Need a reason to celebrate when this calms down
