Just Said Yes April 2021

Wedding reception

Due to covid my reception will be postponed from this October to next April. We are still having a very small ceremony on our original October date.
I fear that people will not go to our reception because we will already be married and won’t see the point as I have heard other people what’s the point of having a reception a year later if you already got married at the court house about other people who have postponed their reaction because of Covid.
Has anyone run into this issue?

    I don’t think this is something you need to worry about. Everyone understands you are postponing your reception due to the pandemic and for theirs, and your, safety. I think everyone will gladly come to your reception next year to celebrate your marriage.

    My friend got married in his original date, but my husband and I plan on attending his. He will be having a ceremony followed by a reception. I fear he might have to postpone again though.

    Unfortunately, this is definitely a possibility. However, I’m sure those closest to you will make the effort to attend.

    You could consider wording it as a "vow renewal celebration" instead. Maybe people would then see it as a separate event and not feel the need to call it unnecessary?

    I wouldn’t read that much into it. I’m doing the same thing — having a small ceremony on my originally planned date and postponing the big reception until a later time. I think people will welcome and appreciate the opportunity to celebrate with you and your husband, even at a later time. This has been a hard year for everyone, and I don’t know many people who will turn down a reason to celebrate and an invitation to a party (especially after getting through a year like this one). 😊

    I don’t think people wouldn’t go! My friend last year had a celebration later on after his elopement and people still went. People wanna be able to celebrate your love with you

    I think people will still go! People go to weddings because they care about the couple, not because they want to watch the ceremony. Also, at my drive-through shower last weekend most people asked about our plans (we sent new save the dates, so they actually already knew) and seemed to genuinely be looking forward to it.

    I’ve been to these before and they had such a turn out! It seemed like their first wedding TBH.
