I postponed my big wedding to June of 2021 due to COVID-19, but I'm still getting married on October 10th. The only people who will be present for October 10th are our immediate family members. I'm still deciding if I want to walk down the aisle again in June and do a vow renewal or just have my reception. I'm leaning towards just having my reception. What are you all doing?

    We are doing the second wedding a year later and decided to walk down the aisle again. I didn't want my grandma to miss that moment.

    We’re former date twins. But we decided to postpone everything until next October. When the ceremony and reception are split so far apart, it’s tricky because you will have already been married for 8 months (almost your 1 year anniversary). If it were me, I’d walk down the aisle with my hubby and do a short vow renewal. I’d have the person leading the ceremony express that you two simply wanted to share you vows for all of your guests to witness and support. Then follow it up with a reception. At this time in life, everyone understands that the pandemic shifted life and a lot of celebrations.

    We have postponed twice already (May 9th, 2020 to September 26th, 2020 and now to September 18th, 2021). We decided to "make it legal" and are going to the courthouse on September 18th, so when we (hopefully) get to have our big wedding next year, it will actually be on our one year anniversary. I've told my mom and sister and a few friends, but my fiancé wants to keep it quiet on his side so that the knowledge that we are already married doesn't ruin the experience for his family (which I am fine with). We are going to dress up a little for the courthouse, but are keeping it very simple. I am going to make us a cake and we will have a special dinner that night, but we want to save everything for our big wedding next year. I'm actually very excited for our "little day of love" because it will just be the two of us and it will be a relaxing, low-key day without the stress of a big wedding and lots of guests.


    I talked to a friend who got married at the courthouse on a Friday and then had a ceremony/reception the next day, and she said that getting married at the courthouse didn't take anything away from her ceremony the next day. She said it didn't "feel real" until she was walking down the aisle surrounded by friends and family, which made me feel a lot better about choosing to go this route!
    This pandemic has really changed the game as far as weddings go. Sit down with your fiancé and talk about what's important to you, and whatever you decide, all that matters is that it makes YOU happy!

    We will be doing a ceremony next year as well. It will essentially be the same as what we are doing this year, because we wanted to bring together the friends and family, like we are "uniting" them, like how we are united. I also still want everyone to see me walk down the aisle, I think it is such a big moment of any wedding, and I want my close ones who can't be at my minimony to see it.
