Had pretty much everything booked in the first 3 months of being Engaged, then took a break for several months, and of course COVID hit and destroyed many brides dreams. Now here we are in 2021, I'm gonna say a year after COVID began, and its threatening 2021 brides as well. Look, I may not agree with many people on COVID, but fudge bucket does this crap suck. I want to be able to have our wedding, with our family and friends. Im almost thinking of having a back yard wedding. Finding some land renting a big tent and those AC/heated bathroom trailers and say screw it. If you feel comfortable and not sick come join, if not we can live broadcast the wedding ceremony. I mean, we have put in alot of non refundable money. But I do want people safe. So, I'm mad at the same time I'm sad.
We looked into marrying at a national park in a SECULUDED area. But now the administration signed an executive order where everyone must wear masks on national park land. I'm not paying $300 for a permit and $500 to $2,000 for professional photography to be wearing a mask in all my photos. No way. Now we are eloping in the city on private property.
We had a minimony in October because we had a feeling that the second wave would cancel our March wedding ... & it did just that, a couple of weeks ago our venue messaged me saying they wouldn't be able to host it. Now we pushed the big wedding back until October 2021, but I am thankful that we were able to celebrate with our closest family and friends and get married in October. But we were definitely looking forward to our bigger wedding smh.
I'm sorry that COVID is affecting your wedding plans! It's definitely frustrating and stressful. My fiance and I postponed from July 2020 to July 2022, so we're just waiting it out now.
I think all of us 2020 brides agree with you... covid sucks!! We rescheduled from 2020 to 2021, and have just rescheduled again to 2022. Sometimes I feel guilty for being so disappointed about how it’s affected our wedding, when it has literally taken 400,000+ lives in the U.S. alone and has destroyed families and left people jobless and homeless. When I think about that, I remember just how blessed we are to only have our wedding affected by this virus and I don’t feel nearly as disappointed anymore. And I keep reminding myself of how great it’s going to be being surrounded by loved ones without masks, and being able to hug them and dance and celebrate without fear when our wedding finally does happen! ❤️
