Hi everyone,


So with 28 days left on our countdown we made the decision to postpone to next June. While I feel SO much less pressure, worry, and stress about trying to have a wedding this year, there is this little thought in my mind saying is 2021 really going to be any better? One side of me says it HAS to be better than this, but at the same time we don't know lol. Does anyone else feel this way? I know it's way to early to start really worrying about it, but it does give me a little bit of anxiety. I just want to have a "normal" wedding, but we have already decided whatever happens next June 6th is our date. We do not want to postpone for a fourth time lol. Let me know your thoughts, and cheers to all the 2021 brides!!!

    Hello Amanda,

    I feel the same way. Our original wedding date was supposed to be August 23, 2020, however with all that is going on with Covid-19 we decided to postpone until May 23, 2021. I'm trying to be very optimistic that by May, it will be better and we would have a handle on this. However, i'm also nervous at the same time. We just have to pray that things get better and remain optimistic. If not, then a small intimate zoom wedding it will be. My wedding in May and yours in June will be even special than what was originally planned. #Faithoverfear #lovewillwin #journeytojackson2021

    Honestly, yes! We haven't officially postponed but we know we are going to. We plan to move to the closest same date in 2021 but it's definitely a worry in my mind. You're not alone! My advice is to put it on the back burner for a bit and help yourself relax and take a break from wedding thoughts. Smiley smile which may alleviate some of the stress for a while.


    It's a little different for us because it is only our first postponement so we would feel comfortable doing it again but hopefully won't have to 馃様馃槚

    Thank you!! It helps knowing other girls are going through the same thing as me lol. I agree I keep telling myself to not stress until March/April rolls around lol. I know the first postponement is hard, but I just keep saying my wedding day will be even better next year now. It got to the point that planning wasn't even exciting for me because I was so worried with the guidelines and restrictions. Good luck to you!!!

    I鈥檓 a little bit worried, but I just can鈥檛 imagine this getting any worse. The only thing that could happen would be a second pandemic and if that鈥檚 the case I鈥檓 just going to move to a deserted island and live off the grid cast away style. Especially after this wedding season being a total wash, I also don鈥檛 think the wedding industry will put up with all of the restrictions next year either. Their taking a major hit this year, so if they decide to do the same thing next year, it will be even more of a hit for them. They will definitely start looking into legal loopholes at that point in my opinion.

    I feel it girl! We're in February and my mind is still bouncing back and forth but we've changed our plans a few times already (pre covid) and then once recently due to our guest count adjustment. We'd really hate it if we have to do it again so no matter what happens, we're going to push forward with our February date and just hope for the best.

    There is no way this can get any worse! and lol i am with you on moving to a deserted island! I agree, I was afraid my vendors might even end up going out of business, every time I asked if they had any weddings left I was told I was the only one left for summer 2020. I feel so bad for all the vendors and venues.

    We did get married on our original day (5/30/20) but postponed our wedding and reception until 6/12/21. I'm not at all confident that things will be "back to normal" next year, but am trying to remain optimistic. It is possible that a safe, effective, readily available vaccine may be released before then and we can have an enjoyable, unmasked event where we can hug and dance and it actually feels like a celebration. Do I think it's likely? Not really, but I do think it is within the ream of what is possible. We'll just have to wait and see.

    I feel the same way, we're considering postponing our Septemeber 6th wedding in MA this year but I am nervous about if next year will be any different. Right now they've ruled out dance floors, photo booths and we are unsure of how many people we can have in my outdoor tent nvm if it rains... Ugh. Keeping us all in my prayers.

    We postponed from 9/20/20 to 7/31/21 and I'm feeling the same way. The worry is still there that this "new normal" could still be going on next year. We've decided that no matter what we are getting married on our new date, even if it's just with immediate family in a small park wedding, and then we'll have the reception whenever it is safe to do so. My fingers are crossed so hard that a vaccine will be out and everything can go on as originally planned.

    Yes thats the exact reason why we moved it. I hated the no dance floors rule, nevermind the masks on top of it. Hopefully things will be a little less restrictive next year. Good luck to you!

    We just decided to postpone too, and feel the same as you! We鈥檙e pushing it out to Spring and honestly are just feeling unsure at this point. The good news is that our vendors and venues have been flexible in working with us, just trying to find a date that works for everyone hopefully!

    I just postponed today from 12/5/20 to 12/11/21. I honestly think things will be better by 2021 and the restrictions won't be as harsh as they are now. My venue said today there can be no dance floor, no mingling, only 50 people inside or outside, etc.

    I was reading up on the status of the vaccines and I saw that they have two preventative drugs in the process that they expect to be available in early 2021 so that gave me hope! Like many of you said, I really don't things can get much worse for our country than how things are right now! So I think all we can do is remain optimistic and hope for the best. I know personally I feel better having moved - the thought of one of my loved ones getting sick was really weighing on me and not a risk I was willing to take.

    I hope everything works out for all of us!

    Yes although I didn鈥檛 postpone our wedding is set for 2021 and I鈥檓 worried there might be a resurgence of the virus in Winter 2021. So I鈥檓 worried about that for sure. All we can hope for is a vaccine ,most people having antibodies and fatality rates going down. Though I鈥檓 still worried about if there鈥檚 another spike.

    I'm worried things will get worse. I'm worried that Our economy will plummet. Several restaurants that I loved have closed permanently due to losing business from COVID. All those employees who worked at those restaurants are now without jobs. My FH and I planned to have a small, 10 guest ceremony then go out to eat but I doubt it will be feasible by 2021. All our favorite restaurants closed (I dont like fast food so not an option) and many of our loved ones refuse to dine inside until a COVID vaccine is available. Then many of them say tbey want to wait 6 months to 1 year AFTER the vaccine is available before they get it so that they can see others' side effects first.


    I threw the towel in and my FH and I decided to elope without anyone there. That way we can do whatever we want without having to sacrifice to make others comfortable.
