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.
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.
