Hi ladies! I’m so upset that the wedding we planned for May 9 this year has to be postponed because of this worldwide spread virus. Anyone else forced to postpone their original date? My concern is the money I spent on my invites and save the dates, now I have to do it all over again! What are your biggest concerns?

    If they love you, are happy for you and think you are important enough, they will attend your wedding. They will make it a priority, and if not, they don't deserve to be there.

    Hey ladies... my wedding was supposed to be today and we could only reschedule to 05/30/20 in AZ. Does anyone else have a May wedding in AZ and have any insight or opinion on if this will work?

    Do you have a written contract with him? If so you can check to see if there is something called a force majeure clause that would excuse either party from performing if circumstances like this arise. It’s worth a shot. Good luck.

    I replied a few weeks ago that we were still holding out hope for our July wedding, but we called it this morning. We are going to have the wedding on the same weekend next year, but the venue said that as long as there is no law preventing it, they will let us and a few friends onto the property for a quick ceremony on our original date. That way we can get married this year and still celebrate with friends and family, just on our anniversary. I just hope my dress gets here and the court is open to give us a marriage license. I had a good cry this morning but I’m okay now - we’re healthy and safe and employed, so we are really very lucky.


    Someone in this thread posted about Airbnb I thought, but I can’t find it. I read today that they are allowing free cancellations through April 14. Hope that helps.
    I hope that you are all healthy and safe, and may you all find a way to marry the person of your dreams in a way that brings you happiness, even if it’s not the way you originally envisioned.

    Woah this is harsh! There are a lot of reasons why people may not be able to make a new date! No one should set a new date without making sure the people that matter the most to them can make it! Before we started booking anything we made sure our date worked for all of our immediate family! If I were to postpone (which I wouldn't anyways) I would make sure the new date works for the same people before locking it in.

    I agree with you Risa. There are a few important people that really need to be present at my wedding, the officiant, my fiance, and my daughter. Everyone else is a plus. The most important thing is marrying my love. So if people cannot make it, it is understandable. But most people, the ones that really love you and want to see you get married, will make it a priority to be there, even if they have to reschedule other plans. By no means are they forced to. But of course, their presence is appreciated as well. So Risa, don't worry about it, just pray about it. It always helps me. I also wasn't worried about anything until about a month ago, so I recently (and unfortunately) just changed my date. Hopefully this situation will change for the better and we can all have our happily ever after.
