Hi, I was meant to be getting married on the 24th May but we have had to postpone the wedding until April 2021. I was wondering what all you lovely brides that had to postpone had done? my h2b is working and he has put me down to work that day. (We are both keywords) We work 12 hour shifts and i work alone and by the time I get home my day will be near enough over. I feel like my day as come crashing down on me. It's not the day I imagined any advice will be great
I ment to be getting married 13th June but had to postpone till March 2021 😢
Am not sure what to do on that day I prob have a massive cry and down a bottle of wine 🍷 or two and put one of my fav movies on or something xx
I was getting married on the 25th April and that got postponed. And my nan passed away weeks before so had very hard time of that date. My h2h almost did a night shift before and was due to work the night on the wedding. So I was on my own all days as he was sleeping for his next shift. Myself personally would have rather been at work to keep me busy and thought off it, as we going to be hard. I don't work weekends so was at home just watching movies and actually relaxing as sadly it is out of our control but we have more to look forward to again when the dates arrive again! X
On the day when it comes round remember it was never meant to be your wedding day, if you choose to mark it wonderful, if you don’t also wonderful.
When your day comes you will take it in and enjoy every second of it because of this horrible thing.
I know it feels awful and unfair. This whole thing is so horrid .. so many events not happening etc that I really hope people stop and smell the roses when it does end .. which it will.
P.S If you do mark it maybe have an unwedding, order a takeaway whilst wearing your comfiest
clothes and maybe watch an awful film and get yourself a box of cake mix 💜
I was due to get married 28th march had to postpone till march 2021 now 😪 I was a bit down on the actual day but when I think on it now I'm alot relieved as I wanna have an amazing day without restrictions.. you will make up for everything on your special day and will be even more amazing 🥰🥰
We were meant to be getting married today in Jamaica so instead we are having a nice curry and some Prosecco and looking forward to our rescheduled date of this day next year...
Seems sad that he’s just decided to work and decided you are too, did he not ask you if you wanted to work or just made that decision for you. Doesn’t seem right. Personally we are hoping by the time our postponed date comes around we can go to our holiday home (only a couple of hours away but different view) as we have booked it off anyway we have decided to keep it as a holiday, I’m going to make a cake for us to cut, we will go out for a walk to the beach, come home with kids, have a nice meal, maybe a little dance to some music. Speak to friends I hope. And just have a nice day together 😊 where ever we may be.
We should get married this year on 20th of July now is next year. We cuncil our holidays but we ask everyone to raise a glass of your favourite alcoholic drink and send us a picture. So we can remember the original day. We still going to work- keyworker 🥰🥰
We were meant to get married easter weekend .. we got drunk on Prosecco and ate wedding cake my h2b got me a ring as a surprise and gave it to me at the time we would have been saying I do he says it was a practice ring ❤️❤️
I was due to get married 9th of May, my fiancé ended up working night shifts that weekend in Scotland while I was in Northern Ireland as we've recently moved back to be closer to his family. It definitely wasn't the day it was supposed to be, and the weather turned out to be perfect. I had an alright day in the end going cycling and hanging with my in-laws (we're staying with them until the sale of our house is sorted) but just have to start planning again now
I have the same would’ve been wedding date as you. It’s so sad, I really feel your pain. We’ve pencilled things in to do together on that day, but we’re lucky that neither of us is working. Maybe in the lead up to your wedding, you could do some nice activities together. We’re doing things like: holding a zoom meeting for a pretend ceremony to our family and friends, having an afternoon tea with bubbly, we’re making our own special cake and designing our new ‘move the date’ cards. I think just try to plan fun things into do for the week.
We too should be getting married 24th May. But have postponed now for December 2020 all being well.
We are celebrating still with an afternoon tea, and then on the 24th champagne and steak dinner.
It will be a hard sad day, but it’s out of our control.
Good luck to everyone for the future. Stay safe xx
Was meant to be getting married the 22nd May but now March next year. I have got a promise ring to give my other have on the 22nd May x
Due to be getting married September 26th - not sure if this will go ahead or not 🥺
We were due to be getting married on 27th June but will now be getting married 19th June next year. We probably won't do a lot, just have a quiet day with food and some wine in the garden 🙂 I'm deffo looking at the positives, that its just postponed but in a nice safe place next year now and it is such a relief from the worry of the last few months! x
Was due to Marry 28th March but got cancelled. I've rebooked for September 12th but also pencilled in 23rd April next year 🙄. On the original date we just shared a drink in the garden x
We was due to get married on June the 20th but now have a new date of May the 8th 2021! I feel much happier now we have set a new date as my anxiety was so bad with worrying if the wedding would go a head or not! New date new year xxx
We had the same date as you, feeling so down about it at the moment, had to move to 30th May 2021, trying not to think about the date we've missed this year and just focus on next year, but expect that on the day we'll get drunk, eat junk food and watch stuff in bed
I was meant to get married in Jamaica April 11th. On the day I did nothing but cry. I know some people plan stuff but I couldn’t even face talking about it. We initially postponed then cancelled as everything is so uncertain and I can’t face the stress. Good luck for your big day when it finally comes xx
Ladies all these dates we have had to postpone were the 1st thing we planned when arranging our weddings. They were our choice of date so Celebrate it, have fun & enjoy each other. We celebrated ours last week & that will always now be a memory. Dont let covid 19 win!! Xx p s weve changed our date 3 times but covid wont win xx
We've rearrange until next year and when we did this we thought we'd get to do something nice on the date we were meant to get married but now its looking like that won't happen either. I'm disappointed but I just keep reminding myself I will still get to marry soul mate, just at a later date. He still sleeps next to me every night and still says I love you everyday, I still get to kiss him first thing every morning and last thing every night and married or not. That will never change. I think we will probably get dressed up as if we're going "out out" and have a house date or garden date with some lovely food and some nice bubbly and make the most of a very starnge unsettling situation xx
Not much we can do we are.gonna rise a glass of champagne listen to our first dance song and be grateful that all our friends and family are safe and are able to join us for the big day next year xx
We would have been wedding twins, we are not working but haven't decided what we will do to mark the day yet. I hope you have a lovely moment together on the day even if it is only brief xx
We were due to get married on 30th May and are currently postponed until 8/8/2020 when we are hoping to have a small legal ceremony with a blessing & original celebration next year.
My sister sent me some recommendations to mark which should have been our big day which we are planning - write your own vows & share them with each other, open a bottle of champagne & get your favourite takeaway. X
I think I'd rather work that day to take my mind off thinking this should be my wedding day!! X
Changed our date 3 times now 😥 but we are going to celebrate our original date 26th June, and fill our guest book with photos of our family & friends toasting our original date ( we have set up event on fb for everyone to share pics there so we can print ) x
I was supposed to get married on the 1st May...it was the weirdest feeling waking up on the day of my wedding...I personally booked the time off, I knew I’d be teary and would struggle to concentrate...I coloured with my son, built a fort and laughed when the weather turned cold and rainy! Everything happens for a reason, do whatever feels right to you, cry, work, laugh, adult, distract yourself or wallow, whatever it is allow yourself the time to do it...and then it passes and you realise that you still have all the magic to look forward to and slowly but surely you start to become excited once again xx
I was meant to get married on the 11th of April. At first I was devastated but I took a step back and realised I’m grateful that my loved ones are healthy and safe. I realised theres pregnant women who won’t get their baby shower or have family over to see their new borns. Peoples loved ones are passing away and they can only have 10 people at a funeral if that. Others have had to have their milestone birthdays in lockdown and I just thought to myself I can have my wedding eventually but these people will never really get that time back again. So hang on in there your day will come. I won’t lie it’s horrible when your date arrives and you know you can’t get married but try and keep busy lovely xxx
I just want to forget the day my wedding was September now nxt May x
Hi we were due to get married on the 2nd May and have postponed until the end of September all being well. However we had the best day on 2nd May. We had a virtual wedding party with friends on zoom. My best friend went to town with a box of goodies delivered to our doorstep complete with a hand tied wedding bouquet, button hole, wedding cake, rose petal confetti, champagne and lots of little gifts. Plus she’d got friends and family who should have been at the wedding to do a video message for us (very emotional) I bought a dress off eBay for £30 which turned out to be beautiful and surprised my husband to be with changing my surname by deed poll! It was a magical yet very emotional day!
Hope you have a lovely day with your husband to be and remember you get the exciting build up to your big day all over again xx
Today was meant to be my wedding day!
We've been for a lovely walk with our dogs. We arranged with our cake maker a sample box so we've been enjoying those. This afternoon we're meeting some family in the park for a socially distanced catch up x
I was supposed to get married on 22nd of June, nothing has been officially canceled yet as the government has not been clear on what is going to happen, but I have that very disappointing feeling the wedding won't go ahead. I don't even know when we can reschedule it for as the venue manager doesn't have her calender, I was supposed to go away for an year for masters and am not aware of when I will be free to have my wedding. I guess the best we can do is have a good cry, phone family and friends and just don't let the virus destroy all the excitement around the wedding, even if it is going to happen later than anticipated. Xxx
We were due to get married 29th may . We have postponed till 10th June next year.. I feel better now everything is organised . But as a key worker I am also working our would-be wedding day . We have decided that on the Saturday we will have a nice meal and toast to our would - be wedding but also to what we have still have to look forward to . Xxx
