    Ours is 1/2/2021 and we are just taking it day by day. My best friend is having hers two weeks before us and she’s on the same page. No one knows yet what this virus will do to the country so just stay calm and see what the coming months bring! ❤️

    Mine is 10/4/20 and I’m starting to think that I should stop planning until this epidemic is over. I don’t want to lose any money on deposits with vendors.

    No way. SO much can change until December. I think you can maybe think about this in August or October...

    Way too early. Historically similar pandemic viruses are at their peak (where lots of new cases are being added) for 2-8 weeks, and then resolve over a period of months afterward. Of course every case is different, but if you look at SARS (also a type of coronavirus, albeit with some different characteristics than this one) the fallout was much less than 9 months (now to Dec). In temperate regions, coronaviruses are also most active during colder months, so its possible with warmer weather this will die down and be a non-issue by the end of the year. I would absolutely not make any drastic changes right now.

    My wedding is May 30, and right now we are not considering canceling or any changes. I work at a college, have a number of friends in healthcare fields, and have family and friends in areas more heavily impacted, so am staying on top of the news and am aware of what those around me are thinking, and currently our consensus is that this is an inconvenience but it is way too early to know if it will impact our wedding, which is only 11 weeks away. I honestly would not be at all worried about a wedding in December at this point.

    I am getting married dec 5 and as worried as I am I’m sitting in it for 2 months and will reassess in May or June. A back up plan is always necessary at a time like This! What about dress orders? Has anybody had any delays?

    Yes, I agree- holding on any further planning! I am reviewing my contracts as I have booked many vendors already. However I am not yet postponing ! Thanks for the response very much appreciated.

    Here is my advice....remember SARS virus which was a coronavirus came up in November, and was gone by May. Our wedding is in OCtober and I think with all the extraordinary measures being taken with curfews and closures, this will be under control.

    This would be considered a National Emergency, and the vendors would refund your money--if they are decent at least! Have been having this conversation wtih all my vendors......all have agreed they would refund my monies.

    Hope this helps:-)

    I'm also getting married in Dec 2020. Our plan is to wait until August to decide. We were planning on sending invitations in September, so if we need to postpone, we'll send a postponement announcement instead. There is just no way to know right now.

    Mine is Dec 20, 2020. I am a bit nervous as well because someone has already advised that I postpone. I have my dress, my venue and sent save-the-dates to people out of town. That´s it. Right now I have paused planning (which is sad because I was just gaining momentum) but I´m definitely not postponing so soon. Fingers crossed that we can all get this done!

    Hi, thanks for your response. It’s tough with what’s going on so I hear and feel you. Who advised you to postpone? I have my dress, venue deposit only and basically everything else we have as well.
