Ladies, I have no idea of what to do. My wedding is in three months. The whole situation with the virus is getting out of control and at this point, I don’t know what to do. I don’t know if I should postpone everything and change my wedding date. I haven’t send official invitations yet. We were planning to send them within the next weeks but we are concerned that people due to fear will not want to come.
You're worried about 3 months from now? My wedding is in 27 days. I am sure things will be fine by then.
I think by June things will have calmed down. I understand your concern about people declining just because of what is going on. But maybe just wait a little bit to send out invites. That gives some more time.
I wouldn’t stress, you still have time. My wedding is in 8 days and idk what I’m going to do 😔
Don't make any decisions yet. Imagine how disappointed you will be if you cancel and then June rolls around and things are much improved. I would send the invites but maybe push back the RSVP date to allow people more time to assess and make a decision about their attendance. If things are still looking bleak mid-end April I would begin contacting vendors to ask about options for postponing (not necessarily backing out- but just getting your options laid out).
It’s a bit early to be sending out invitations as is. Hold off and see how things progress. The heat is supposed to help kill off the virus so I’m hopeful the situation will improve in the coming months.
I think all you can do right now is listen to the news and heed the advice of officials. Contact your venue/ vendors and ask of penalties, so you are well prepared IF that day comes. Our wedding is in October and it's a destination wedding. I think it's too early to panic (I'm moving full steam ahead with our plans including travel next week for FHs son's spring break).
If the government places the entire country on a mandatory 2 week quarantine, I believe we will slowly cure ourselves by taking ourselves and others out of the incubation period. There is just so much panic right now, no one is really thinking clearly.
I’m sorry that some people are belittling your concerns because their date happens to be closer. You are allowed to be concerned so don’t listen to comments that make you feel silly for being worried. This is not a contest. 3 months is a short amount of time! My wedding isn’t until October and while the pandemic may pass by then, I’m worried about how the economy will be affected by then, how our income will be affected, how many family members will be able to afford travel, etc. I say take it day for the next month or so, then start putting a plan in place. Your concerns are valid. Stay positive! ❤️
I think there is an important point being missed. For those of us with June weddings, we haven't paid the big amounts to vendors yet. We still have a chance to save that money for another date. We're trying to decide if we should risk all the money that those will weddings coming up are worried about...
I'm also a june bride, I heard the warm weather will help deter the virus, we are also expecting a warmer than normal spring. as of now I wouldn't do anything besides wait and see a lot can change in 3 months.
Thank you so much dear. I've noticed that those who are supposed to get married soon are belittling my concerns because mine happens to be in three months. What they don't know is that my venue has already cancelled on me too. They just did it today. We have no clue what's going to happen now. My fiance is in the military and he is supposed to leave right after everything calms which means that now everything will be delayed.
Quick update: our venue has already cancelled on us. They aren't taking the risk to have weddings for the next months. Most of my wedding vendors have cancelled on me. Thankfully, they have been very supportive to the circumstances and they are willing to roll it over to any other day we choose.

I’m so sorry to hear that. I feel horrible for you and your fiancé. No weddings are safe. As a matter of fact, my OCTOBER wedding might fall through. I just heard that my venue fired all but one employee and may not survive this whole thing. If I don’t have a venue my whole wedding will fall apart. So to those that think later weddings are safe, they may not be.
Oh no. I'm so sorry for that. Maybe you guys can wait until it all gets better to select a new date. We are on the same boat. We told all vendors that we couldn't predict a date cause we don't know how long this situation will last.
