Hello brides 2 be I know due to all the news of this virus alot of us have been stuck with the discussion of calculation or postponing our wedding dates. I 1st want to pray safety over everyone & their love ones during this stressful time. I hope this havent caused add stress to you brides to be & if anything all the vendors & your guests be understanding. Any change of wedding plans for anyone so far?
We were hoping to reschedule from May 2nd to a fall Saturday date. The venue has no other Saturday available. Only Fridays and that is something I never wanted to do. We might not have our celebration this year. We have been waiting 18 months for this and it really stinks.
As of now no changes, but we are taking it day by day. Our wedding is in Gatlinburg April 4th. We got an email last weekend that our venue was not closing. Since they are not open to the public they don't have people just walking around the grounds. We only have 5 guest, our cabin is secluded so they have refused to give us a refund. They said the only way they would is if a federal travel ban is implemented. They offered a credit bit didn't say how much. We would be out quite a bit of money. I told my FH last night that I don't care about the attractions in Gatlinburg I just want to marry him on the date we picked.
We are May 23 in a state park in New York and the venue was supposed to open April 9th, but is now not even opening until May 1. All our vendors are still willing to work with us if we still have it. We are looking into a tiny wedding with 27 people and then receptions with family around the country over the summer.
If we go that route, we will be hiring a videographer to take high quality videos so we can share those with family who cannot be there.
My state has said no events larger than 50 people for the next eight weeks so I'm somewhat nervous. My wedding is in 10 but until I hear anything from the venue I can't really make any changes since they'll charge you if you move the date and they cannot fill it. I'm hoping this all blows over by then though...

Weddings are already a stressful & delicate time & to be in the mist of this is added stress. Hard to focus on happy things when we dont know what we should do next. So Thank you, I feel having a forum like this help us know we aren't alone in how we may feel & be able to reach out/ vent to someone in the same boat as you. 💫bless it be all
