Thinking forward

So with everything that’s happening I assume a lot of weddings have been postponed. Our wedding was supposed to be on April 18th in Australia but we couldn’t get there. I don’t know how I’ll go on that day now that’s it’s not on. What are people planning to do to get through that day that should’ve been?

Mine was suppose to be April 25th.. now it's September 12th... Just got to look forward to the new date not alot else we can do really! 😊

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Mine was supposed to be this Saturday 28th 😢 gutted more so cos I can't rebook a new date till it all calms down xx

Could you and your fiance spend time together, have a picnic in the lounge, watch your favourite films? It sounds pathetic, but I was thinking if you can spend it together in a way that we're restricted to, at least you can kind of mark it in a way? Do a quiz with family and friends in the evening over Skype, or zoom or whatever. I can't imagine how upset you must be. X

Me and hubby to be were due to get married on 18th april. Spent a bit of one evening this week planning something fun involving fancy dress. We are trying to keep cheerful as we have been lucky enough to be able to move everything over to 18th october. We consider ourselves very lucky

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Ours was supposed to be 30th May and we’ve postponed until 24th April 2021 gutted but we can at least stop worrying now 😊

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

I have no idea think there will be alot of tension/anger. Obvs its not anyone's fault but, I was supposed to get married this Sunday 🙁. Had everything packed ready to go in the car sat night! Our wedding is now 8th Jan. The weather is so nice at the moment but, looks like I could have snow at my wedding now 🙄.

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Mine was meant to be tomorrow, I’m gutted but the health and safety of ourselves, family and friends comes first. A new date has not yet been agreed we thought it will be best we wait until everything has died down. It’s likely in 2021 😊

I was supposed to get married at 2pm today, had a few sad moments but we were lucky to rebook for Oct so are focusing on looking forward to then. Only annoying part is a lot of gifts etc were personalised with the date so will have to get all new things, I'm hoping when I contact some of the suppliers they may be understanding & offer a discount if I re-order 🤞

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

I will be drinking wine 💃

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

I've postponed until next year, because most of my family and my fiance are vulnerable, so I don't want to take the chances

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Mine was supposed to be 1st April and on the day we are gonna have the sweetie table out for the kids, order pizza and go through all the photos and sort into a new photo album.

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Ours was supposed to be june 27th so as long as we are able to go out by then me my fiance and a load of family and friends are going out to have a trial run drink together xx

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

I'll be taking the day off work and keeping busy. Probably lunch out, dog walking with the other half.
Can't bare the thought of clock watching all day, wondering what we should have been doing 😩.

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

This is a very good point and I’ve been thinking the same we were suppose to get married on the 9th of April, my plan is to have a bottle of champagne and cook a nice meal but really wanted some good ideas to make the day special, I guess we get to spend the day together which is the most important thing! We have postponed to November which is a shame but I guess it just gives us something to still look forward too

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Our wedding day is 4th april, obviously we cant get legally married on that day but we are still going to get 'married'. we are going to decorate our flat, get some nice food in, I am going to but a white dress on that I have (not my actual wedding dress as its still at the dress shop), my other half is going to put some smart clothes on, and we are going to say our vows and exchange rings in our living room, and do a first dance. we are still calling it our wedding day as the date itself is very special to us, and then as soon as we can we will be down the church to make it legal! and then doing everything as we had planned in october when hopefully his parents and brother can get over from new zealand. still celbrate the day if you can and try and look for the positives - we get to celebrate 3 times now, and my bridesmaids had already decided to have another hen party in october!

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

We were due to get married 15th May but now changed to the 4th September 2020. I know where you're coming from re the day it should be, I'm gunna keep the day booked off work & we will have a party for 2 remenising of how we got to be here. Keep your spirits up at the end of the day before we know it ALL of us will be married 💕 Unless quarantine makes us strangle them lol .. Stay focused on the new date xx

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Sorry to hear that sweetheart, but think of the massive party you will have when you do get married! Stay safe x

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Mine was meant to be on 18th April! Absolutely gutted 😢

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

We were supposed to get married on the 22nd may this year but we've had to postpone until next year because the venue have no dates for this year left. Gutted xx

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Ours was meant to be April 11th in Jamaica, obviously can’t get there so had to cancel. I’m doing ok now but I know I’ll be a mess that day. We’ve rescheduled everything for April 11th 2021 so that will still be our day 🤞🏼xx

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Ours was meant to me 13th April but postponed until 10th August. Praying this will be over by then and we will still get our day. I willl be spending what would have been my wedding day peeling off the old date on favours and sticking the new date on🤣

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Getting smashed

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

All my weddings as a photographer have been postponed upto the end of June so far. :-(

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Cook a special meal for your wedding breakfast, and have your first dance in your living room, just you 2 😍

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

We had a relaxed day with our new puppy. Had a glass of prosecco in the evening to toast what could have been! Couldnt spend time with family or friends due to social distancing unfortunately, but had lots of lovely messages, and remembered they as hard as it was to postpone, we knew we were keeping those we loved the most safe x

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Ours was supposed to be in june. We are hoping by then the restrictions are lifted and are planning to spend the day with friends celebrating anyway 😊😊 xx

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Our wedding was due to be 30 May but we’ve had to postpone until 8 Aug. Just praying that we’ll be able to have our day then 😢🙏🏻

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

We've just had to go through the heartbreaking steps of cancelling our wedding in Kefalonia at the end of May 😥 Feeling super sucky that we are having to start from scratch with somewhere in the UK for some time this year, but don't know when, where, how or anything. Two years planning come to a complete stop.

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Ours was due to be on the 7th June had to postpone until 6th June 2021. Providing this has all blown over we plan on having a BBQ and a few drinks with the family, or if this is still going on it may be a BBQ and drinks for two. Xx

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

I’m supposed to be getting married on 24th May. It’s now been postponed to 5th June 2021. We are hoping to take the kids away for a long weekend when this is all over. Albeit not on the actual weekend of the wedding, il probably just work to take my mind off of things x

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Ours was meant to be 25th April. My other half and I have decided to have a fun day in the house, we are going to have a picnic in the garden and play board games and distract ourselves as much as possible ☺️

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

I'm so sorry Sofia, you guys you must be gutted
Xx

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Ours was supposed to be 11th April in Las Vegas, it also happens to be our 5th anniversary and we won't even be able to go out and celebrate that.. The relief we'll feel when it finally does happen will be great and I'm sure it'll be worth the wait

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

We were supposed to be getting married on May 11th in St. Lucia. Gutted! We've been together 12 years, and never had a proper holiday together before. 😔

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

I'm gonna sit in bed with a bottle of wine, a straw and an entire cheesecake.

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

I’m planning to do something with family, hopefully some things will be open then/ lockdown will be more relaxed so we can go somewhere

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020

Mines was suppose to be the 18th April to 😞 gutted I’ll probably have a drink and just think about what I would be doing at all the different times

UKbride Member 26 Mar 2020
