Postponing Weddiny

I am due to get married in December this year and am worrying about how this will be affected. I see a lot of people have postponed up to September already, has anyone postponed yet who is due to get married after September? Thanks.

Im december too and worried about it 😪

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I have postponed my October wedding till next March. Although I’m sure lockdown will be lifted and wedding will be able to go ahead, we had planned up to 150 in the evening. I just can’t see that being allowed considering all the social distancing in place. I may be wrong but I decided to take the risk and put the control back in our hands and move it. I hope for those who haven’t they still manage to have a beautiful day as planned! I’m just over cautious!

I'm due to be married on 29th October , we're looking at 83 currently which our venue deems a small wedding so hopeful it'll go ahead

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We were due to get married the first weekend in October but we have postponed to next November. I'm just worried that social distancing will still be in place and dont want to chance family and friends not being able to make it. X

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I was due to get married in October but we postponed to April just to be safe

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I think you will have to wait until.closer to the date and see what the situation is then unless you want to lose all your deposits...

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I’m December too and ask to postpone till next year as we have part of wedding party coming from oz, but hotel will not let us untill they are told by government large wedding can still not go ahead at the end of the year.

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I postponed my July wedding 2 months ago to 31st October but we have also secured a date next year for 6th March. In all honesty I cant see my Oct date happening due to social distancing. I have 200 guests overall and Im not uninviting any one. Im still keeping the Oct date as an option but believe our wedding wont happen until March 2021

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We were due to get married oct 9th now March 26th I feel so much better about it I'm much more relaxed and excited again

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We've postponed until November from yesterday fingers xd it can happen xx

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We due to get married in september but have next april pencilled in with registrar and venue

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We are November and have pencilled in a back up date for next March in case but have been told confident it will go ahead I know it's easier said then done try not to worry just yet x

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We were due to get married July...changed to sept....we are still going ahead sept no matter what (registry office) and have booked blessing/reception for next may xxxx

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I postponed my May wedding to November but I’m not confident that will go ahead so my venue have let me pencil in another day next year just in case

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We’re getting married in September and all our plans are still good to go!

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We were due to get married in October but weve postponed now until july 2022 as many dates have already been taken next year 😭xxxx

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I was due to get married 26th of September and after boris last speech we then decided to postpone till next September as we felt as tho we wouldn't be able to have many people if we did it this year , I've heard that weddings can still happen but with only like 20 people in attendance!! As like others are saying we want all our family and friends there weve spent alot of time and money and are willing to wait so we can have the day that we wanted!! Hope you get the day you've worked for .

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I'm due to get married on the 18/12/2020. But we're not sure it will go ahead and if it does we don't know what restrictions there will be. I feel better as we've set a deadline for ourselves, if by the 1st of October we have no clear picture of what we can and can't have then we'll postpone to next year. We don't want to make a rash decision but at the same time we have to be realistic /:

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We were due to get married 11th July but have now postponed until May 6th. We were offered a September date but venue can’t guarantee we will be allowed a large wedding so opted for May instead

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We were getting married 22nd Dec it’s been postponed not ready booked yet until we know this has fully calmed down can’t get wedding insurance so could potentially lose more xx

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We have changed ours 3 times 🤦🏼‍♀️ we we’re getting married October 2020 then we had miracle baby expected September so we moved to August then we moved to December but i lost all faith with this year so we moved it to October next year now just to be safe x

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

Due to get married 6th November 2020.. And going on a long haul honeymoon.. Trying this week to change it to a year later.. Don't wand a social distance wedding.. And no way will there be any flights by then to zanzibar.. 🙁

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

Our Wedding Was Supposed To Next March We've Choose To Postpone Till 2022 Was We Have A Guest List Of Over 250 We Wanted To Ensure Plenty Of Time For This All To Be Over With

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We were due to be married March but, venue closed after announcements. We now get married Jan next yr. Once lockdown is over I think social distancing will still be going on for some time. Im expecting Jan wedding to be postponed aswell as don't want everyone socially distancing in photos.

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We are due to get married on 10th December and we haven’t looked at rescheduling just yet. A lot can change in 7 months so we’re going to wait until September to see what’s happening then to make a decision.

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

Ours is due November 7th and just not thinking it’s going to go ahead...... really thinking for next year but stressful and need government to make that decision,.....

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

were august and our venue are only dealing with june and july atm, cant even pencil in a new date yet 🙉 lots of our suppliers are saying they're nearly fully booked for next year so now I'm stressing that if it comes to postponing I wont be able to have everyone that weve booked 😪

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I think the government need to actually decide how many numbers a small wedding is or how many a large is to help people determine? Xx

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

Due to get married in 2 days on the 20th May. Ours has been postponed until sept 9th... May even have to postpone till May next year at this rate xxx

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We are due to get married 1st October 2020 and have tried to postpone until next year but our venue won’t let us with out loosing all our money that we have already paid (£7000) they have said they will let us know 6 weeks before the wedding date if it will go ahead or not! They have given us no other option! So stressful!

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We were due to marry 19/9/2020 and have no postponed till September next year 😢

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I moved our May wedding to Novemeber then moved it again to June next year. I couldn't deal with the uncertainty of this year at all

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

Due to get married in 26 days, postponed until October 2020 but I just kept worrying over it so I've postponed again until May 2021 x

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

29th October. Planning for it to go ahead. If changes are required we’ll reschedule to a winter wedding package 2021 instead (jan-March then October-Dec) so most likely same date a year on but we’re hoping it’ll go ahead as planned and be the best party and celebration everyone will need💓

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We are due to get married on the 21st November. We are carrying on with our plans. If numbers are cut which I assume they will be, we will have our ceremony and then have a reception or just a get together next year!!
No one knows numbers etc and probably won't for weeks yet so follow your gut and do what feels right 😊

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We were may this year, postponed to November and now May next year - it’s been stressful!

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I’m 19th of December, luckily mine is in a village hall so if push comes to shove, it’ll be a smaller wedding with just close family and cost barely anything. It is what it is, we’re okay getting married in the church and then if we have to just have a big party on our 1st Anniversary xx

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

Due to get married on 20th november, fairly large 75 in the day 150 in the evening, spoke with the venue last night and feeling a lot more positive and were holding out and planning as if it will go ahead 😊 xxx

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I was due to get married on 4/4/20, we still got married in a fashion by saying our vows and exchanging rings. We call each other husband and wife. As soon as we can we are going to make it legal even if it's just with a couple of witnesses and then redo everything and have the reception when it's all over as we have important guests coming from new Zealand. Luckily we are getting married in the local church and our reception is a different church's buildings in the middle of nowhere. The only person we have to work around is our photographer. I'm so glad we are doing it all ourselves! We will have people watching via zoom, Skype, FaceTime etc when we will also have my brownies singing via zoom as they were due to sing while we signed the register.

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We’ve postponed until next year, we were meant to be this Thursday, our venue had some dates in December but we felt that our guests may still feel uneasy about attending as we both said we would feel the same if we were to be guests at a wedding any time this year

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

5th December and feeling positive. You have to don't you!? 💙

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

due to get married on the 23 October... our venue are confident it can go ahead... however I'm very worried about social distancing.. it's took all excitement away... and if I'm honest I think it will have to be next year, and I really can't be bothered trying to change everything🤦🏻😔

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

due to get married 10th October this year and am postponing. too much unknown with hotels/accommodation for guests and whether we'll be allowed gatherings of that size at that time

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I’m due to get married on 31/12/20 and we are planning as if it’s still going ahead but we’re both quite sure that we will have to postpone. It’s gutting as we were both looking forward to a New Year’s Eve wedding but we don’t want to have to uninvite people and also don’t want people feeling uneasy x

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We were due to get married 10th October and have postponed to May next year. Suppliers were all glad I made the decision as they dont expect them to go ahead and if they do social distancing will still be in place

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We are booked for August 21st and not postponed as yet 🤞🤞🤞🤞

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I think the most worrying thing is the social distancing if weddings can go ahead it may mean a limit to guests and sitting separately I mean how does that even work at a wedding reception dancing eating etc xx

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I think a lot of venues are only postponing dates a certain amount in advance, whilst awaiting further guidance from the government. There has been no official guidance as yet on weddings so we need to wait and see. I would advise to hold tight for now, and wait and see how things progress over the next couple of months 😊 if you wanted you could always speak to your venue to reassure you. Fingers crossed you get the perfect winter wedding you’ve been dreaming of! 💕

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I was due to be married this October but I have postponed until June 2021. Just too much uncertainty, we haven't been able to get suits or bridesmaid dresses yet. I feel like a massive weight has been lifted now.

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I’m due to get married in November but have cancelled everything. Hoping to get married the end of next year sometime. We lost our venue deposit but couldn’t expect people to socialise so soon.

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I was due to get married 25th sept I changed my date to 2nd July 2021

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

Not wedding but our Vicar rang us the other day about our daughter’s christening and recommended if we want more than 10 guests to postpone until next year

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

Wedding is booked for end of September we are still hopeful it will go ahead as planned.

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I would wait till September as out local register is only moving stuff upto september October

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I was meant to get married in May and postponed to September this year. Trying to stay positive.

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I’m not even getting married (been engaged for nearly 4 years lol) but in all honesty I would postpone for at least a year and then you know for certain your going to get married and have the day you always wanted. No point having a limited number of guests it will ruin it

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

Supposed to be getting married August 5th and our venue still haven’t let us postpone.

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

We’re getting married in October and are still going ahead with everything, all fingers and toes are crossed 🤞🏼❤️

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I’m November and still hoping that it will still go ahead

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I am still holding out 20th June 2020 is our date. The government hopefully making more announcements 1st June. Will see what my gut reaction is when here more.

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I am really 50/50 at the moment too. Due to get married this Halloween but starting to see places and businesses are allowed to have furloughed pay up to September, does this mean social distancing will still be enforced right up until the end of the year/next year. I have Halloween next year penciled in but I'm torn on what to do myself. I wish there was a definite given from the government as to what's happening, I'm not good at decisions 😆 I've heard that if we are allowed weddings and events this year, it'll only be small gatherings... I want my family and friends there, so I am trying to bring myself around to moving to next year.

UKbride Member 18 May 2020

I was due to get married in August but have now changed my date to June next year as my venue said they the understand that guidelines and social distancing measure will go on till December and that it was our choice if we wanted to change I felt the decision to change was for the best I don’t want my wedding being shadowed by covid 19 I want it to be a positive memory x

UKbride Member 19 May 2020

Don’t do it.

UKbride Member 21 May 2020

I imagine the problem is going to be that although the wedding can indeed go ahead you may be limited with numbers with possibly socially distanced seating etc. A friend of mine was advised that if her wedding can go ahead in October that she may be asked to reduce her numbers by half and have only 5 guests per table or group them in live in the same house. I’d rather wait and have the wedding I planned but the venues may be a bit tricky about rescheduling.

UKbride Member 21 May 2020

I was October 2020 but decided to postpone till August 2021 as couldn't deal with all the uncertainty x
