Hi uk brides, I’m due to get married this September. I was wondering what other September brides are doing regarding their weddings. Are you postponing it or thinking all will be okay by then. My venue seem to think everything will be okay by then. Thoughts? xx
We're due to be married on 22nd Aug and our venue are closed until 6th June. Following government guidelines we wont anymore until this date, but are still being asked for final numbers, package deals and payment to be in by May. So im not really sure if we will be postponed or if our date will be ok. X
I get married in October and i haven't cancelled anything. But there is so much uncertainty.
I was due to get married 28th May and have just moved to 28th September x x
We get married on 26th sept and up to now its going ahead our venue is opening up in july xx
Hi. We were due to get married on 19 September but we have postponed to next August. We didn’t want to spend the next few months worrying what would happen and if the wedding could go ahead, would there be a limit on number of guests we could have. As my parents are part of the ‘shield’ we didn’t want to risk them not being able to attend. It’s a disappointment of course but I do feel relieved. It depends what is most important for you x
We are due to get married 19th July and our venue is going ahead as normal, as it stands, with a slightly more flexible final numbers date xxx
I was getting married 26th of May. It has been moved to 18th of August. Lots of weddings postponing to next year due to the restrictions by registrars but if you’re happy to have a blessing in front of guests and the legal part with just your witnesses then I think/hope it will be ok! Xx
I am having the same thoughts. Due to get Married 28th August. I am waiting on bridesmaids dresses and with everything that is going on i don't know if i will get them. Also my venue isn't opening back up till the beginning of August!! Think i will make my final decision by June. X
We're getting married at the start of Oct but we're considering postponing - I'm hopeful that it would go ahead but the last couple of months haven't been the lead up that I wanted x
We were getting married on the 15th August but we’ve postponed it not got another date but will probably be next summer 😢xx
Due to get married 12th sept. Atm it's still going ahead but who knows.... how do you all know when your venues are reopening?? Surely that's down to the govt?
I’m sept and don’t think it will happen as the government have said we won’t return to normal until a vaccine is available which won’t be till next year
Was getting married 15th September, but made the decision to postpone till 7th July. X
I'm due to get married 12th September and can't decide whether to postpone or not, so much uncertainty.
I’m getting married 19th September, going ahead and crossing my fingers xxx
I'm due to get married Sept 26th. We're just waiting g and crossing everything that it will go ahead. We've given ourselves till June before we make a decision or others make a decision for us.
I’m carrying on. I think it’s too early to be worrying at this stage
I'm getting married july 30th and as of yet i I havent postponed as weve not been told different by the venue
Our Wedding is the 15th Aug, we have been told to keep our date active, it’s in the back of my head in preparation to postpone, h2b wants to wait out until June which is what our venue said said but it’s so scared just waiting and waiting. It’s our 10th year anniversary as well. So ideally we don’t want to postpone but if needs must. 😭😭😩
We are getting married 11th September and we are postponing till next year.
my dad is in NZ and my matron of honour is in Washington can’t see them getting flights but also unsure if the venue will be open by September xxx
I was due to be getting married in May but have postponed until September so here's hoping that it will still go ahead.
Ours was in September and we have postponed a year xx
We made the decision to postpone our September wedding to July next year. My parents are high risk so I can’t get married without them
We are postponing our June/July celebrations to November.
Our venue are still going ahead with July weddings at the minute but I’m on the frontline nhs and my family are high risk so we just decided to postpone.
Id like to think autumn/winter will be okay, for one The economy and people being out of work cannot reasonably be sustained for much longer, The world would be in a financial abyss and all the world governments know this. There are five steps we need to meet for lockdown to be lifted and they aren’t a vaccine being in situ.
I am due to get married 19th September, venue seems to think we will be fine. We are going to make a decision in June.
I’m so sorry to jump into this but not sure how to do my own post..... our wedding is 7th November 2020, but worried about mass gatherings, money now to keep paying, shopping, booking etc...,, we’re highly considering postponing to next year as just all so uncertain xxxx help!!!! As well please... xx
Oct 6th but we're Australian (and so are most guests). Anyone else in the international travel situation? Aus isn't too bad right now but even if things lighten up in the UK, I'm worried international travel won't be possible by then
July 31st wedding our venue have advised after we contacted them that at present our wedding is to go ahead the registrar's have only advised them to cancel weddings up until end of May x
Moved ours from September to June next year, they'll still be restrictions in place and how many people can be there etc
Michelle Booth just out of interest if u were thinking
We’re getting married September and we are currently just hoping and praying everything will be ok by then. We’ll see how things are at the end of July and then maybe make a discussion. Fingers crossed for you!
We’re Dec 2020 & were pretty much looking like postponing this years a right off 🙄
We were getting married the 5th september but we made the tough descision to postpone to july 2021.
Its a difficult descision but you have to do whats best for yourselves xx
My wedding is 12th September and everything is still going ahead as planned even the honeymoon. I think it’s too early to be worrying and will make a decision in July
I’ve already changed my date earlier this year as my original venue sold up under us so have a new venue and date 11th September, praying with every part of me that it will go ahead cos stag and hen abroad are now cancelled and after 14 years am hoping my wedding will happen x 🤞🏼
We were 12th September and changed til next July due to social distancing restrictions and everything else x
Due to get married on 12th September were hoping it can go ahead 🤞x
We postponed our October wedding til next June x
We were originally getting married at the 13th of September, our venue wanted us to wait it out but when I asked availability for next year it was all ready pretty much fully booked so we made the decision to postpone until April 23rd next year as its been making me ill with all the stress as our daughter is very high risk xxx
Ross Alexander Cameron xx
Due to get married sept but we are literally just having the 2 of us there anyway so hoping it goes ahead x
i have an october wedding and i am considering postponing until next year. there will be a number of at risk guests at the wedding, including myself, and i just dont want to put anybody at risk. no-one truly knows when this will be over with
I don't think things will be ok by then but it's impossible to know for sure. They've said social distancing may need to last all year so big weddings seem unlikely. We're getting married 1 August but will probably just wait till the venue or caterers say we need to postpone.
We postponed our wedding from may to end of September this year. I would imagine it should be ok by then as at this stage it's to early to postpone to next year. Especially as most venue's and suppliers would say that x
We are 28th September and I'm not postponing yet as nobody knows what the restrictions will be then so I'm continuing as if it is going ahead until someone official says it cant.. if the tight restrictions are still in place then we will postpone to allow vulnerable parents and grandparents to attend but it's too early to know now so I haven't even asked my venue yet as they know as much as we do which for September is not a lot xxx
Mines in November and we are cancelling it as it’s going to be well over a year before we can expect older and vulnerable people to mix. It’s sad but weddings aren’t important enough to risk families health.
Were getting married on the 5th of September, I've thought about postponing it but my partner wants to wait it out and see what's said!! Its a tricky one!! Xx
We are the 25th going ahead as planned for now zxz
I have postponed I was 25th sept I’m not 2nd July 2022. X
Oh I am so confused and don’t know what to do! We are booked to get married on 30th august, the registrar has been told not to take any new weddings for this year and not to conduct any until further notice. She said that after this lockdown extension that’s due to end 3rd May there should be an update to weddings/social gatherings. We don’t know whether to look at postponing or hold out? We have planned the normal big wedding and although we want it to be about us getting married don’t want to have spent over £10k to only have a couple of people there as it won’t have the same feel and make it as special! 🤢🤯😢 can’t stop worrying
My date was 18th September and we have postponed to next year. My brother is in Aus and this has effected him massively financially so he now cannot make it over. We also do not know where we will be regarding the pandemic by September and even if we arent in lockdown would it be responsible to have a large gathering of people in one place? We decided probably not
Maria Dawber 😕
We postponed from June to September so fingers crossed 🤞🏻
Ours was September 1st and we’ve postponed to next year.
My wedding date was the 5th September but we have postponed for September next year. A lot of the wedding party are older generations, and we wanted everyone there. So we thought what’s one more year to make sure everyone stays safe x
I was due to get married 3rd October but now postponed until March 2021... would prefer to wait until we have a better chance of having everyone there, my brother is in Alabama and my fiance's best friend is in Australia.... we felt it was a big gamble to hope things would be "normal" by then
I’m not until next August but my friends wedding is end of July and she has kept her wedding active as the venue said they hope to be open in June but have given her another date as a back up. My friend who was getting married in August in a church has postponed until next August so I guess it depends what your venue says really. Everywhere is different. I hope you all get everything sorted easily and safely x
We were due to get married back in March and have rearranged for August this year the venue offered us as early as July. I'm sure September will be fine xx
Thought I'd give my opinion, if I may. We were getting married on 3rd September but have decided to postpone to next year May for the peace of mind and because family and friends abroad, I feel, are unlikely to be able to travel over. We don't think the current climate is likely to change much anytime soon unfortunately 🙁
All the best xx
We were due to get married in September but have postponed due to most family members coming from overseas x
Best advise I can give is wait to hear what your venue is doing otherwise you could loose thousands. If they venue cancels they have to offer an alternative if you postpone they don’t have to offer you anything without charging you. Pretty much all insurances won’t pay out as this is classed as an act of nature. I wish everyone the best in what they decide xxx
We’re getting marriage end of August, I spoke to the insurance company who said to carry on as normal for now!! X
I’m getting married in July and I’m moving my wedding to next year there will b restrictions in place until the end of the year at least social distancing and probably gatherings over a certain amount I spose just hang on a little longer see how the lockdown restrictions pan out u cud probably get married but it won’t b ur usual wedding xx
We are due to get married in July !! Venue and church are going ahead as normal atm not that’s I can see it happening 🤞🏻🤞🏻 think sept you will be fine xx
I'm getting married 5th September and its business as usual for me! 😁👌
I'm getting married on 26th still hoping all will be ok to do so! 🤞 but myself and htb will decide middle of june if we will postpone . We have contacted most of the people involved to pencil in a date for next year just in case .
My wedding day is 18 September 2020 and so far we are still going ahead, it’s giving us something positive to aim for through all this
Just going with the flow at the moment... We're aiming to still have our wedding but will just have to wait and see xx
Mines 18th September and my we are just going to wait until are venue postpone xx
The BBC news last night had the top bloke from the NHS who state matter of factly we as a country will not be back to normal till at the very least the end of the year.
He said due to the fact that it is unlikely that vaccines/medications will be available within 2020 that social distancing is likely to continue.
Basically I read it as, they are going to loosen lockdown measure but probably won’t be allowing large gatherings, restaurants will have to have capacity limits or stay shut etc because they know they cannot ask us to ‘stay indoors’ for a year.
It sounds harsh and disappointing but I would consider rebooking for next year tbh.
I was due to get married on June 4th however we have now postponed to Sept 24th so fingers crossed everything goes ahead 💐
Getting married 31st August and still hopeful it will be able to go ahead 🤞 it’s so difficult with planning if you should keep paying and organising or put on hold...I’ve just ordered the bridesmaids dresses...
We were June 21st, and got rescheduled to August 2nd. Don’t know if ours will be going ahead with the news about social distancing ! 😭
Ours is 27th sept, praying it still goes ahead but having doubts that we will need to prospone till next year but we havent heard anything from our venue yet but waiting to see what happens as it seems to be we getting told different things everyday. 🤞we all get our weddings this year ladies 😃
I was meant to get married in may but I have postponed until october and also have a third date pencilled in for april 2021 with church and venue. Speak to your suppliers and see what there availability is and get another date in the diary just in case but wait out until 2 months before to see what the situation is before making final decisions.
We were due to get married 7th june and weve postponed ours till 13th September xx
I've changed my date from 15th May to the 4th September I'm hoping we dont have to change again but who knows when all this will be over. Stick with your date for now otherwise you may lose deposits etc of gatherings are still banned they will have to let you change the date x
I'm th 5th of September and I'm trying too stay positive but it's really hard not knowing how things are going too be 🙄x
Mine is the 25th September. We have been advised to carry on like normal. Yesterday I got booked in for our notice of marriage meeting early August. We have waited 3 years for our venue so holding out on postponing it till late July/August time.I’ve spoke to our venue and we know if we do have to move we won’t have to pay any extra costs. Or if we are not happy with the date they will offer us a full refund. Our invites have gone out now too. Just imagine if it’s the first gathering with all your loved ones. What a party it would be. I’m keeping faith it will still go ahead. Worst case is we’re pick another date. I do understand safety is the most important thing however. What will be will be 🤞🏼we will all have our day even if it’s a little later then originally planned x
We were getting married on the 2nd May and have postponed till next April. However we only postponed 6 weeks before as we really was hoping it wouldn’t come to that. The day after we postponed they cancelled all weddings! I would personally pencil a date in with your venue & your suppliers for a backup , they are all being very helpful . And I would Keep your original date in for the moment . September is a while off and hopefully you can have your day this year , that way you ca make your decision in say late June, early July depending on when in sept it is , and you have everything ready to change if needed ... You will know by then what is best to do eitherway xx
I was meant to get married in June spoke to register office and they are saying that until the end of this year they are only allowed 2 witnesses at the wedding so postponed mine till April next year x
I am October and have been told to carry on as normal
We are getting married 5th sept, not heard from our venue yet and are keeping our fingers crossed at moment as don’t know what to do for best
I was August 25th ( nearly September) and postponed until next April but hearing on the news last night that social distance will likely be in place until we get a vaccine which is unlikely this year has still made be a little nervous about April x
Were getting married on the 4th September. We’re just keeping our fingers crossed. The vicar has been amazing and helped us plan how to do reading of the band and everything. 🤞
Well I was supposed to be April and I've postponed to October. Was feeling ok about it untill I read this
We are getting married on the 8th August and we haven't heard otherwise from the venue and registrar has sent an email that weddings before the 15th june aren't going ahead so we are hoping ours can go ahead the invites have gone out ,no rsvps as of yet but i think guests are waiting until more news of when the lockdown restrictions may be eased but it has given friends and family a boost and a date to look forward to and have a party to celebrate our wedding! And they all seem to be looking forward to it! X🎉🥂
Mines on the 29th of August and we are still going ahead. Our venue and wedding planner aren't worried so neither are we 💛
I should be ok mines 31st july next year 🤞
We were due to get married 4th September but thought it best to postpone just in case. Venue allowed us to choose a new date for next year at no extra charge
I've already had my 28th March ceremony cancelled and changed to 12th September so keeping everything crossed that it goes ahead x
We are due to be married on 12th September and are waiting to see how things go in the next couple of months x
We're meant to be getting married on 19th September, our vicar had said the church of England have cancelled it, but that they may revert it... Our reception is held at my parents house so that's not such a big deal.. We're going to give it til mid June to see how things are going. Hate not knowing but would kick myself come september if I could have had the wedding and rescheduled for next summer. Also I imagine now most summer weekend dates have been taken up so we would probs have to book a week day which isn't ideal... But then the whole situation isn't ideal anyway! Dilemma!
We were getting married on 22 August but have postponed until July next year, we wanted to make the decision early in order to ensure the dates we wanted next year were available. Although everything may have calmed down by then, the lead up to the wedding just wouldn’t of been the same.
Ours is September 12th, everything is set to go ahead at the moment but the longer this all goes on the less hopeful I am 🙁
We getting married 19th september.gonna wait till early july to see how things are.hoping all will be ok by then
Ours was in May but we’ve moved to next year now, the only thing I wonder is how people will feel about gatherings after all this? people might still feel dubious about attending events where there may be lots of people, I hope everything will be sorted by September virus wise but I can’t help but feel people themselves may take longer to readjust x
We moved ours from this April to this August in the hope we can go ahead by then!
I was just literally about to ask the same question! Mine is 2nd October and I know some people have cancelled but others who have cancelled already have set their new date from sept onwards so I just don't know what to do! We've been told today that as long as social distancing is still a "thing" then some vulnerable guests will be choosing not to come which is so disappointing but we would lose so much if we cancelled/postponed and not the venue . . .it's so difficult xx
Mine is the 19th September - planning as if it’s all going ahead until told otherwise 👍🏼😀
