Hi there everyone! So I am a little concern and very much stress about all this situation with the new virus. My wedding day May 8th, and literary everything is finally set up with all vendors. However I am concern that with this craziness happening now they put us on quarantine for that date. My wedding it will be something small for about 30 people mainly family and close friends and most of them are close by so flights won’t affect it. However like I said I am just afraid that they may put us on quarantine by that time! What should I do?

    Reach out to your vendors and venue to see what your options are if you do cancel or postpone

    Yes, you should postpone. It's been recommended not to have any gatherings of more than ten people in the next eight weeks. Your wedding meets both of those criteria.

    Keep your wedding date unless your venue says no too. As long as all guest in attendance are healthy and do basic things like washing their hands you are fine.

    "As long as all guest in attendance are healthy and do basic things like washing their hands you are fine. "

    I'm sorry, but that's very dangerous advice to give and also false information. The CDC has put precautions in place for a reason and if people deliberately ignore them, we can expect things to get much worse before they get any better. There is no way to know for sure if anyone is "healthy". Symptoms can take 2-14 days to appear and asymptomatic patients spread the virus just as much as those with symptoms. Please encourage others to make responsible decisions for the health and well-being of the public. Otherwise, this pandemic will last much longer and have a much higher death toll.

    The advise was no dangerous it was the truth. I never said to ignore CDC recommendations however everywhere has different recommendations as well. As long as she is following what her county requires then she’s fine to have her wedding.

    The CDC recommendations are nationwide, as are the White House recommendations. COVID-19 is highly contagious and patients don't always show symptoms, which is why social distancing is a huge deal. Your statement of "As long as all guest in attendance are healthy and do basic things like washing their hands you are fine." is absolutely dangerous, inaccurate, and is 100% ignoring CDC precautions. Nothing good will come from ignoring these precautions.

    This. Just because your BFF Brittney from college doesn't have a cough, doesn't mean that she can't pass the virus onto your 80 year old grandma. Then grandma Shirley is in critical care, intubated on a ventilator, because you decided that your wedding was more important than her health.

    Unfortunately, YES you should absolutely postpone. Our only hope of beating this virus is if we follow the CDC guidelines. No gatherings of more than 10 people for the next 8 weeks. I'm so sorry Smiley sad

    I would definitely postpone. Public health and safety is paramount over anyone's wedding. In fact, I'm a professional in the wedding industry, and I've just advised all my brides and grooms to cancel or postpone their March and April weddings, and with everything that's just now come into effect, May weddings as well. We're about 10-14 days behind Italy when it comes to the virus and their initial casual feelings about the virus have now lead to a country-wide lockdown and hundreds of deaths. Contact between people (even those feeling totally fine) can spread the virus on to people who are at risk (immunocompromised in some way) super quickly, and in order to give medical professionals an opportunity to get a handle on things, staying home and not going to any non-essential appointments or outings is pertinent. They're closing down restaurants, bars, and theaters, and people get much closer (hugging, celebrating, sitting in aisles/pews) to each other at weddings than they do at those places.

    Sorry about how things have turned out for you individually here--it's definitely been frustrating for brides and grooms getting married anytime soon. I'd strongly suggest postponing.

    I agree with PPs. Reaching out to vendors to figure out their contingency plans has been the most helpful for me.

    I don’t know what are u talking about! I am very much aware of all that is going on! I wrote here to try and find some positive and supportive comments about the matter, not necessarily saying that I should keep the date, but more to brainstorm and hear what others have done in the same situation. So your comment “

    Our wedding was May 9th and our venue pulled the plug before we could. Its safer for everyone based on the CDC's recommendations. I would postpone now so to give you the best chance of rescheduling this year. We were lucky that our venue had 3 Saturdays open that we could choose from. I'm sad but everyone has been super accommodating!

    This is not true. The guidance that was issued was NATIONAL guidance, and it exists for important reasons based on science. Even if local counties aren't "enforcing" it, it doesn't change the fact that the risk still exists and is very much real.
