hi just looking for someone to reassure me everything will be ok so since my partner proposed and we started planning countless things have gone wrong 1) honeymoon booked with Thomas Cook went bust 2) bought the dress or so I thought turns out I was wrong as hated now settled on a dress 3) hen do fell through as guy decided to sell his party house 4) 2nd planned hen do postponed due to corona 5)wedding postponed due to corona And then to day the hotel I booked for me hen do for my new wedding as gone into administration I'm sure that more than one bride to be deserves
Everything will be fabulous on the day. Me and many others have had similar problems, although it does seem like you've had a bit more than most :( but when the day comes round it will be amazing because you'll be marrying your soul mate and nothing else matters. I really hope things get better for you and you start to enjoy everything again xx
Everything will be OK. In the end it's about the special bond between you and your partner. My wedding was also cancelled due to Covid, I'm currently battling with the venue for my money back which has been very stressful. I also have had issues with wedding dresses, originally having one and then changed my mind but I was lucky the shop let me swap as it was early days and they hadn't placed an order in my size yet. Now the dress i have i can't bring myself to look at anymore so its currently up for sale, and I bought a dress from online retailer Needle & Thread which I absolutely love. My honeymoon was also cancelled. Don't worry alot of people know how you feel and what you're going through, but in the end just do what makes you both happy.
Hi lovely, I feel your pain. Our hen, stag, wedding and honeymoon have all been postponed/cancelled.
Unfortunately we chose the worst possible time to get married 😭.
Try not to look back too much at what's happened and just focus on getting everything in place again. Regardless of whether or not it's the wedding you initially wanted, just remember why you're getting married ♥️
We were due to get married in April and are now getting married on 7th Aug this year. Our plans have had to change slightly, but we just want to be married. We did think of postponing to next year, but don't want to wait any longer. I'm sure when your day comes round it will be great, and if it's not quite how it was originally planned it won't matter as its the marriage that matters most.
Your not on your own 😢 it's been a crap time, try and stay positive, weve rescheduled everything for next summer but some days I find myself panicking over that.
It cant stay like this forever xx much love and remember your not on your own x
Same just had one nightmare after another and everything putting strain on the relationship. We have moved ours til next july from this july
God that's awful for you! Im sure you are stressed to the max! My hen do/stags/honeymoon and wedding have also been cancelled/postponed but luckily I havent had the issues you are facing. I would say... maybe take this as an opportunity to have a clean slate?? And just start all over again? I mean, I know you probably love the venue youve chosen but if all that happened to me, I know I'd be having a few tantrums 🙊😂 but once ive calmed down and taken a deep breath, I'd look at the wedding as if I'm just starting to plan it from the start. I hope you havent come into money issues with thomas cook and your venue😧 and if not then id just begin the wedding planning again as if youve just started and get excited again looking for a new venue and honeymoon 🙂 when your wedding day actually comes youll have the best day! I hope you get sorted!
While it does seem like everything is going wrong please dont worry and panic yourself. None of this is your fault and 4,5 and 6 are all due to the same thing which we did not see coming 7 months ago. Thomas cook is the owners fault fully as they new this was happening.
You will get threw this and things will get better for you. Give it a few days things should be better. Remember you have your health and others have come from Thomas Cook going bust and Corona virus worse off than you.
My weddings been cancelled 3 times now and I hoping it goes a head in November so 5 more months to wait , and our cruise which was to be our honeymoon..I hope everything goes ahead for you think we just have to all stay positive.
Your really not alone. Thousands probably millions of people have had their wedding days cancelled. Unfortunately we’re all just having to roll with it, we were meant to get married this Saturday, I’m absolutely devastated but at the same time relieved that we had the choice taken away from us. You’ll get your day, one day, and just keeping thinking about that! The future can be a beautiful thing.
If it's any consolation, I think many people will be a similar situation. The important thing is that you have each other, everything else will work itself out in the end.
I had to postpone my wedding 5 years ago with 2 weeks to ago. I had an accident causing damage to my knee with 4 weeks to go. It was a stressful 2 weeks, we had all had our final fittings and the venue couldn't secure a new date. I had to change venue. Our wedding moved from June to September and everything went perfect on the day and we even had better weather. I promise it will all work out in the end. I spent my hen do in a wheelchair watching everyone else dance and enjoy themselves. Our honeymoon went from being Cuba to Devon. When everything is far more normal, you will enjoy your day far more than in the current climate. It will all come together again xx
I feel you:
1st wedding Cyprus due July 2019, postponed to Sept 2020 due to my dad fighting (and winning!) cancer
Sept 2020 wedding cancelled due to Thomas Cook going bust
Booked for April 2020 in January when finally received partial refund, planned and paid for whole wedding in 2 months which of course got postponed thanks to coronavirus
Fingers crossed for April 2021 otherwise I think the universe is trying to tell us something!! 🤣🤣🤞🤞
Oh no! It is such a rubbish time. I really hope you are okay. When I had to postpone my wedding I cried for 2 days. Can't imagine how you feel. Just think of the end result. We will all have the wedding day that we deserve <3
Keep your chin up and think positive. I have had the exact same but you will get married and it will be amazing. It will definitely be something to talk about in years to come. I have insisted on keeping everything that was personalised with our date on. Just think you can celebrate two anniversarys xxx
My abroad hen doo was with Thomas cook - went bust
Second abroad hen doo cancelled due to coronavirus
English hen doo cancelled use to coronavirus
Honeymoon cancelled again coronavirus
Wedding reception cancelled sue to coronavirus, Boris has said weddings can go ahead from the 4th of July (mines the 11th) but as its a church and they haven't been able to read our banns we now need to apply for a licence. No licences being issued at present so we have had to rearrange the church to the 8th of August at which point our usual vicar is on holiday. We can't have a wedding reception we did have 200 people coming. Huge fight with our venue to refund. But we will get married on the 8th of August. Xx
You're not alone honey 😢 we had to cancel everything for ours too, my dress is stuck at the alterations shop until who ever knows when, we are praying we can get out to the States next year for our rearranged wedding. But on the brighter side, it has given us longer to save up, we can now afford additional touches we wouldn't have had this year. Keep your chin up and fingers crossed your perfect wedding will happen even better that what you originally planned x
Youve made it this far through all that crap. Youll get through anything else.
Gives you a great story to tell x
Aww that’s terrible. Keep your head up and things will get better. All you needed to know that you and your partner are supposed to be with each other. That’s all that matters.
Hope all your plans fall into place x
Oh no, that really is a run of bad luck!!! This year has been a nightmare for all us brides. Hope things get better and you have an amazing day x
Hugs as my aunt says to me life’s all about the journey. Hugs - all will be ok. Wedding insurance isn’t happening at moment won’t cover with cancellation of venue with virus. Our hen, stag, engagement party and wedding all been postponed. We’re sitting tight and weathering the storm. All will come out in the wash xx
So here's my advice from experience, wedding and otherwise. Whenever I've tried to push to get things, make things happen, get things done, I find that it always seems to end badly. I've found when I almost hold myself back and say "just hold on, something better and more worthwhile is coming", I've always ended up winning.
There's a reason for all of this and you'll see why when you come out the other side. I know it seems hopeless when you're in the thick of it, especially when you wait so long for your special day, only to be told you have to wait longer, but believe me it'll be worth it in the end.
This might be an opportunity to drive down cost, negotiate better things etc.
I'm really good at this stuff and getting compensation, bargains etc and my friend is the master or legislation and consumer rights. If you ever need some advice, just inbox me xx
Your going to have the best wedding day and strong marriage you've gone through some horrible stuff and disappointment together and are still going strong possibly got even stronger. This is upsetting what's happened but on a whole they tint things on a whole. You can still have a hen do anytime. Once everything settles down with this pandemic you have a fab hen party and wedding will be even more special. Xxx
I had same 2 wedding dates cancelled then hen dos Iost venue but finally sorted it all out. And realised they not impirtant better to be safe and everyone else in our family es to be alive and well that's what important xx
Oh love that's awful 😕 well, if it makes you feel any better, my hen, wedding and honeymoon were also cancelled due to covid. I cant tell you when it will happen hun, but it will. Take a break from planning and thinking about it. Maybe find a new project or hobby for lockdown to take your mind off it. Art helped me. Be kind to yourself
Oh dear that is a lot of bad luck all rolled into one x keep your chin up when the day comes it will be wonderful and better than imagined because you will have strived together.
Have a baby, that will give you something else to do instead 😂👍
2020 has just taken a shit on everyone. I am so sorry that all of this has happened to you. Things will be okay, the world will recover and you will get to have your wedding <3
Ah poor thing! There's a saying the worst the wedding the better than marriage! just like it's good luck if it rains on your wedding day. with all the stuff going on right now the couples that really love each other and the ones that are going to get marry and have a happy life. there was looking at it just a big party that they're postponing the party are looking at it as a marriage! I think right now the happiest couples are the ones that are going to do elopements, because they love each other. we are allowed small weddings here and outdoor weddings so for those that really care about each other and don't care about the big hoopla just do that! I've talked with Sandals most of the resorts of reopened and you've already been through so much stress they offer a very low stress free wedding! I'm talking the basic flowers the venue breakfast and bed dinner at the resort cocktails free! I've seen for as little as £1750, three nights or even more if you wait till autumn of next year and have this beautiful intimate wedding with each other. you can always have a party or wedding blessing later but it sounds like God telling you don't sweat the little stuff and just focus on the love...
I’m so sorry things appear to be falling apart for you. Trust me, I feel the same at the moment as countless things have cropped up leaving us to postpone our wedding planning. Just please remember there is always a light at the end of the tunnel ❤️
Your not alone hun. Try to stay strong. We have had our wedding cancelled ... twice. Honeymoon and hen cancelled and all our gifts we purchased engraved for a date that never took place. I needed to take some time out but hopefully we will get through this and come out stronger. I know my partner and I certainly are determined that we will become mr and Mrs and we want it more than ever xx
