    Yes, we downsized to less than 10 guests and it will be 100% outdoors.

    Well we had a minimony which was the plan from jump but honestly even though my MOH got sick prior (luckily no COVID and she was better day of) I would not have waited. I am too impatient to wait for when this may or may not be over and I wanted to be his wife. Every bride is different and ultimately it comes down how you want your day to be.

    I do too. Ultimately if you want the full wedding the if it is not better then postpone if needed but if you don't want to reschedule then go for it. Smiley smile

    We went on with our wedding (Nov 2020). Our guest list was originally 75, and 61 showed. We had a sign to wear masks as it is mandatory in our city, however no one wore them. We did have sanitizer set up around the gifts/food, and all of our food was served via caterer. So less contact. We were however fortunate because no one ended up sick!

    That's good no one got sick, we planned on our wedding being around 85 people. I'm just starting to pick up on planning again,, and I'm already stressing out about Covid.

    We had our minimony in October with 35 guests. We gave out customized hand sanitizers as favors and guests had their masks but most people didn't wear them.


    We have our big wedding planned for March 2021 and so far we have cut our guest list down to about 80 guests. We haven't decided to postpone or cancel, at least not yet

    Hi May, we got married in August (postponed from June) and I don’t regret it at all ❤️❤️❤️ We did make lots of changes such as cutting guest list, masks available for guests, provided hand sanitizer, and moved rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception outdoors.


    We invited 162 and 104 came. All state guidelines were followed (PA) and at that time 250 were allowed outdoors. Guests only went indoors for restroom breaks or to drop a card off. Hope this helps 🌸Wedding during Covid 1

    I got married 10.10.20 and stuck through it! Didn't want to postpone or cancel. We downsized the guest list from about 45 guests to 21 guests, (even before covid we originally wanted a small wedding). And we provided masks (some people just wore their own, and some people stopped wearing it as they got more comfortable), hand sanitizers, spread out chairs, and had wait staff serve our guests dinner during the reception. We also opted out of big group dancing, and just entertained our guests with speeches, our first dance, cake cutting, and the shoe game. We were also lucky enough to have our wedding during the time when cases were low in our state/county (CA) and followed state guidelines, so we were allowed to have the reception inside. I really didn't even think about covid at all during my wedding. Everything just felt normal to me on our day. Smiley heart
