Our wedding is 5/23/20 and now we wait day to day to see what we will be allowed to do. It could be just a small family ceremony with our minister. We would video and then share with our friends and family. I haven’t talked with our venue yet I’m holding off until April 1. Crazy but we will get married somehow. I will wear my dress and he will wear a tux or suit. All of family and friends are super supportive and we can plan a reception later. However, not confident about the honeymoon cruise yet. Since we still have 8 weeks praying daily things will be much improved and back on track. We were just about to print invites when this all hit! So we wait. Crazy thing it shows what is really important. The marriage of two people or the celebration? This is a second wedding for both of us and take it from me. The marriage is more important. Your family and friends will always be open to celebrating with you!
Agreed!! Too often the WW posts on here were of brides asking and sharing all the “stressful” aspects of the wedding planning or fears regarding the wedding (ie. an “unhelpful” MOH, can’t find the right color dress, what to put in a bridesmaid proposal box, etc ... 🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️ ).
However my reply was always the same... my only fear was illness. It’s just a wedding… If the color of the flowers are slightly off, who cares? If a bridesmaid wants to wear a different set of earrings, who cares? If you have an uneven number of bridesmaids and groomsmen, who cares? The show will go on. But if FH or I became ill (or our parents), then THAT’S something important. So in this sad state of the world, it’s nice to see brides finally voicing and focusing on what’s important, which is the marriage and not the wedding. Our wedding is in October. However, the way things are going, we might not be able to keep our date either. 🤷🏽♀️ But like you, we will still get married and have the reception celebration at another time. Best wishes and I hope everything works out well by your wedding date.
5/24/20 bride here!! I'm right there with you! Lets all hope this craziness is gone. If not, hey, the world keeps spinning and we will cross that bridge as we get to it, right?! Stay positive and sanitized 😷✋
Im and right here with you! marriage is important and our date means alot to us. I am 5/24/20 as well! Chasity and Erin when are you guys be making your decision to postpone or not? We have a great relationship as is, and raising our beautiful baby boy together so we are fine with waiting till next year. Just so much planning will be postponed until next year. Hope everyone is doing well with this transition its not easy!!
Date twin!!!!! We are also taking day by day. Our officiant is still on board, and we got our marriage license today. Caterer sent out an email to all their clients saying that they’re still operating because they’re a family owned business and can’t shut down during all this craziness. The only thing that’s tentative is our venue, which is a public park. I need to email them but I’m scared we won’t be able to have the ceremony and reception there. When it comes down to it— we are still going to get married that day!!! It’s just about finding a place to do it.
