Hey ladies! I just want some opinions. Would you go to a reception only (next year) if you weren't invited to the ceremony (in June) because of this virus?! FH doesn't think people would come. I just wanted ro know if you were a guest how else you feel?

    I would go. I'm sure everyone understands what's going on at the moment. Maybe you can do like a short vow renewal during or before the reception, so people can still feel involved?

    I would absolutely still join in knowing the circumstances that caused you to make that decision in the first place

    I would go. You can't help it if you have to downsize the ceremony because of the virus. People would understand.

    Thank you all so much! That was in my plan was to do something like a vow renewal. Our date is important to us and all of this is just a bummer

    100% I would go. Especially because it wasn't your original plan and it's due to circumstances. It's beyond me how anyone wouldn't understand that you still want to get married on the original day....

    Hello,
    Yes, I would go to the reception next year to show support to the couple. Due to the corona virus a lot of us had to change our wedding plans. So please don't take it personal. The reception is about celebrating with the happy couple I would feel honored if they asked me to celebrate with them.

    I hope my comment helped you. Peace and Blessings. Smiley smile

    I would totally go! And I second the comment that recommended a short vow renewal. People know what's going on and they can understand you wanting to get married now, and I'm sure it'll give them something to look forward to after this is all over.

    I would go (though I admit I might be biased since we're going to do a courthouse wedding once we're able to and hold a celebration of our marriage later this year).

    If things were normal maybe some people might not attend, like your FH thinks. But right now I think that everyone realizes what's going on with the coronavirus and will understand. They'll probably just be happy to have a reason to get together and celebrate with you

    Yeah, it's crazy times right now. Not how I pictured my spring going at all. But we're trying to make the best of it, like you are. And I keep telling myself I'll get a good story out of all this - someday Smiley laugh
