Advice please!! I have re-booked my wedding for the 2nd April 2021. We have 60 people coming to the registry office and 60 more coming to the reception. Am I being naive in thinking that it will go ahead? I don't want to get my hopes up and my partner and I do not want to have a smaller ceremony.
I'm 10th April and only invited 13. We keeping fingers crossed it might be 30 by then but planning for the 15 x
Im april and only banking on 15 people at best
We are the 8th April and we are postponing as we have 120 I have no hope in it happening I’ve already postponed 3 times 😞 this year sucks!
I'm trying not to think about it too much. We have about 60 for the day and 90ish for the evening. Ours is in June and I'm planning for 30 too as we've said we will still go ahead no matter what x
I was 1st may 2021 but already moved to 2022 moved it 4 times now x
Ours is the 05 April originally moved from the 04 May this year. Iv 150 people invited, and worried that I will have to cut 135 people, I think all we can do is wait and see I’m not planning or doing anything else now until December/January as hopefully we should know a little more by then.
I’m April 2021 I’m still planning but am prepared for a plan b x
I don’t know what to think at the moment , we are not until Sept 21 but thinking of contingency plans .
Hard to say. You might find it can go ahead but with fewer numbers. Then again you might be able to have those numbers. We dont know what is going to happen in 2 weeks let alone 6 months ish time
Im 22nd may 2021, im hoping all will go ahead and will see where I stand after Christmas before I make any decisions x
I rebooked mine for the 20th March 2021. I have already had an email from the registrar office saying that I am only aloud 15 at the venue. Mine is in the 6 month block from when he released it though. As your wedding is less than 2 weeks after mine, it is not looking good and would postpone again if you are wanting a bigger wedding. :(
My original wedding had 100 day and 150 night guests but just couldn't do with the hassle of postponing again so we are going a head. We have booked a night reception with the venue for our 1 year anniversary so everyone can celebrate with us then (hopefully) x
I've had to move mine twice already
We are getting wed 07th April 2021 and have changed to elopement and are going to plan a big celebration with all our loved ones when the time is right and I must say it feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders worrying about keep making changes and making hard decisions of who not to invite really looking forward to my day now x
I am due to be married April going ahead with things no matter what this year has been fucking shit I am not letting anything stop me next year x
I was Feb 2021 and have moved my wedding to November 2021 hoping it’s more than 30 by then 🙂❤️
I'd opt for a plan b or move it to 2022. We've got a ceremony in Nov 2021 and we've already discussed who we'd invite if only 30 people were allowed to attend, if it's any less might just invite family (we have a small family). The way it is now I don't think it'll improve that much in 6 months!
How this years going I think next years especially beginning of year could be dicey. I’ve just stopped planning as there no insurance that will cover.
My August 2021 got cancelled so we are just having a intimate ceremony with 15
I'm due to be married Feb 21, so we fall into the bracket of 15 guests only. We've got a new date pencilled in for if we need to postpone, which were pretty sure we will but won't be confirmed until Jan. Such a pain as don't feel like we can do anything x
I think the best thing to do is hang in there and see how things look around Jan/Feb.
I’m may 2022 and I’m still stressing out🤦🏻♀️
I am due to get married May 21 with 50day and 70 evening guests. I find it hard to get excited as it’s already been postponed once I am not optimistic that it will still go ahead as planned. Fiancé wants us to get married no matter what in May and then if needed have a party at a later date when everyone can attend.
We are in the same boat for April 24th. Already moved from April 25th and have 150 for evening reception. We have set a limit that we are willing to get married with (30) and hope that everyone will understand. X
We've rescheduled for 25 March but we're already taking into account that it'll be cancelled again and that we'll just have to go with the registry office and nothing else for now (once he's back from his extended work trip) x
We were meant to get married in July postponed until next July. We have 60 day guest and more 100 evening guest. We are considering just doing a registry office soon and then we will do a party when we can. I just want to be married and I don't want to put it off any longer.
Ours was supposed to be August just gone, we moved it to 30th April with about 150 guests. I’ve mentally cancelled it tbh I can’t see it going ahead especially not with those numbers. I think if it gets cancelled again we’re going to do a really small wedding just as a formality and then renew our vows in a couple years x
We're June. Having moved twice from May and November. We're getting married no matter way next year. I cannot deal with another rearrangement.
At the moment its only 15 people and its like that for 6 months if it does extend it will prob only be to 30 unfortunately I think your only choices are to go ahead with either 15 or 30 or postpone. Really feel for you xxxx
We should have got married last month, moved it to 27th March 2021 and moved it again to August, because we didnt believe we can have the full wedding we planned for in March. Still not convinced it'll go ahead in August. Xxx
I’ve had an April wedding already cancelled as they didn’t want just 15 guests. They postponed until 2022 (originally April 2021).
Well mine been rebooked for May and we have 100.so fingers crossed!!
So the government said that the current rules around weddings would probably last around 6 months - which would take us to April next year. With the current rules around localised restrictions, even in the highest risk areas, you could still get married with a maximum of 15 attendees (including the couple).
It’s anyone’s guess what will happen after that though....
We were supposed to get married in Dec but put back to Feb 21. I have had enough now & moved it to July 2022, I’ve stopped all planning & will pick up again in Jul/Aug 2021. I can’t be doing with all the swapping & changing & all the confusion it’s causing 🤦🏻♀️
We are getting married 16th May 2021 with 60 day guests and another 20 in the evening. I'm hoping it will go ahead but I honestly dont know. The sad thing is how many wedding suppliers will close if this continues 😩
Mine is 4th April 😁and to be honest I’m not very hopeful it will go ahead with more numbers 😞
We got married on 26th September this year with 30 people, and everyone loved it, said it was better than having too many people there, we had everything we wanted with a few tweaks, sweet cart, photo booth, DJ, we had our wedding breakfast, by 10pm I was knackered, so I was glad to finish early, hopefully you can have the wedding you want, we certainly did!
If you want to get married have a plan b and c.
15 guests and
30 guests lists to the ready. As things could get better again and then worse. We are due to get married in June and we did book for 50guests but now whittling numbers down as both getting stressed worrying.x
I think you need to decide what’s more important to you both. Getting married in April or having all your guests there.
I was supposed to be getting married in August and moved it to April 2021.
We’ve decided that getting married is more important to us so we will go ahead with just the ceremony (we’re planning for 15) and have a small gathering afterwards with however many people we are allowed. We will postpone the reception for a good few years and celebrate with all our 120guests once everything has settled. Unfortunately I can’t see any weddings getting back to “normal” until the is a vaccine which seems to be a long way off at the moment
We’re booked for May 21 and are fully anticipating we will have to postpone to 2022 🙁 I’m half tempted to just get married and have a party when all this has blown over 😞
We got married Saturday 10th and it was perfect....many of our guests said it was one of the nicest and most personal weddings they had attended so don't despair.. you can always have a big party later on.
We are much the same as many others, postponed once from May this year to May 2021, don't want to postpone again as getting married is the important thing. We have original guest list (55 day, extra 60 evening), then we have a list for just 55 day (taking out a few people who may not be able to travel from other countries), a list for 30 and a list for 15. We will have a reception with full guest list when safe to do so, get to wear dress twice anyway
My friends had to postpone from Sept this year to May next year. Fingers crossed 🤞🏼
Mine moved from March this year to Jan next yr! Not looking good......
Postponed from june and october 2020 now rescheduled for june 2021 . I myself have doubts over that with numbers but we are adiment to go ahead whatever happens
We were meant to be getting married next month but moved it to next Nov I'm not even sure that it'll be going ahead with our planned numbers by then but I hope so
I was 21st August just gone and postponed it 2 auguat 2021, we are planning 4 a plan b with 15 people if we need 2
I was May then this weekend and now we have cancelled the whole thing (insurance) and booked a church for 4 weeks time ❤️ literally just want to be married now cx
I was may 2021, changed it to may 2022 xx
Moved ours to Aug 2021 after it being cancelled this year. We have already talked about it not happing again a decided that it will go ahead next year regardless.
Mine is April 21 after changing date twice. A vaccine should come out after Christmas fingers crossed, so I’m holding out all hope to still go ahead, we can’t all keep moving dates to 2022,2023,2024, otherwise what’s the point ! X
We were due to get married June 2021 and we’ve just moved it to June 2022. We don’t want just 15 or 30 guests and I can’t see much changing anytime soon. 😢
Our wedding is April 2021 - we had originally planned for 75 daytime guests and a further 75 in the evening. We’ll go ahead as planned if it is still restricted (hopefully it goes back up to 30) - our wedding and what it means is more important than all the extra guests we could invite xx
I'm due to get married in July but think we may have to move the date, what to do???
We was due to get married 15th August 2020 we then postponed to 30th May 2021 but it’s looking doubtful that will go ahead either so have now provisionally booked 7th nov 2021 it’s horrible all the uncertainty we have 50 day guests and 90 evening guests we don’t want to drop numbers because how do you cut numbers when people was originally invited me and my partner would find it really hard to say you was invited but this time around you can’t come we’re just gonna keep riding it out till we can have our perfect day with all our family and friends and everyone is safe x
We are due to get married early March. I really have no hope of the big wedding then. I just cannot see over 100 people being able to be together in one room!
It’s crap but I can’t put it off, so we’re are having a small wedding with only 10 people. Then as soon as we can, we’ll have a big party.
Plus side.. we’re saving about 5k 🤣
We were due to get married in Greece in September. We rearranged everything for here. Had close family at the ceremony and a few extra to make up to the 30 ( our wedding was 26 sept - the last weekend of 30)
I can honestly say it was the best decision. We originally had a small Greek wedding and a huge party planned on our return. Instead we had our nearest and dearest there with us all day. ... in our local dressed beautifully as a Greek Taverna by More Production and @littleweddingtreasures
Ultimately you need to decide what’s the most important thing to you both.
We are now 3 weeks happily married and had the most amazing day!
Good luck whatever you decide 💕
I know it’s awkward when you’re close to a lot of people but there may come a time where you have to ask yourself which is more important. The wedding or the marriage? You can have a big party any time after the restrictions are lifted, but how long are you willing to put together for the rest of your lives on hold?
Thank you so much too everyone that has commented on this post! My wellbeing is being totally destroyed but trying to hold it together! I just don't see my finance settling for anything else then the wedding we originally planned .... im going to hold out for as long as I can then who knows! Xx
We pushed ours back from June this year until next year, then decided to push it again to 2022 to be on the safe side as we want a large reception.
Main thing is you and Carl get married after the year you've both had you can always have a party when things settle down and wear all your wedding gear again then love to you both
I feel so much for all you brides that have rescheduled once already, my big day is booked in for 2nd June 2021, 57 day with about 80 more in evening, this is our 1st date, so no pushing back so far, but as you all say I really cannot get excited about it now as I really cannot see it going ahead 😒 I am swaying towards keeping that date with the registrar so we can have the date we planned but pushing the venue back for a celebration at a later date .... so many disappointed brides 😢 so sad & really feel for the businesses too... x good luck all 👰🏼🤵🏻 we may not get the day we planned but we will marry our loved ones 🥰
We're keeping our fingers crossed Ella, lots of love xxx
As a humanist wedding celebrant, I’m finding lots of my couples are now revising their plans to an intimate wedding of up to 15 people in Spring 2021 and then a vow renewal for more guests at a later date.
My policy is that any fees paid for retainers can be transferred to another available date if necessary as couples need all the reassurances and support they can get right now.
Stay strong everyone - love will win the day 💕
I was due to get married in July this year and have moved it to February 24th 2021..this wedding will go ahead whatever the numbers lol 😂 xx
