Any advice??

    Postponing the wedding by reaching out to the venue would be a great idea to know where things are bound at the time. Its great your not giving up on your thoughts, keeping positive is the way to be as patience is a virtue.

    Not to sound like a broken record, but I would wait too! So much has changed in the last year, and so much more can change (unfortunately we just don't know if it'll be better or worse yet).


    Waiting is stressful. I found it helped to have a go/no go date picked where we would officially decide to pull the plug or not.

    I would personally wait to cancel your wedding. A lot can happen from now to next summer. I would wait at least 6 months and less to make a final decision about your wedding. I think that once most people are vaccinated things will start to get better and things will start to gradually reopen and restrictions will ease. Just give it some time before pulling the plug Smiley smile

    My fiance and I postponed our August 2020 wedding in May 2020. Rescheduled for August 2021. Then we postponed in April 2021 and rescheduled for August 2022

    I would wait to cancel your wedding for next summer. I know things seem a bit hopeless right now, but we really are at a turning point with vaccines. It's going to take a few more months before things start to feel anywhere close to normal again, but next year should be much, much better.

    Maybe just take a pause from planning for the moment and pick it up back up at the end of the summer. That way you'll still have about a year to book things and continue planning if you decide to go ahead with your date.

    Yeh, like the other ladies said I wouldnt worry about it now. Thats a long ways away! I was supposed to get married in August last year and we didnt pull the plug to post pone until a month before hand and everything was fine. Now our wedding is next weekend (10 people ceremony) and our vendors that we wont be using (yet!) still have the deposits and when we plan on having our reception next year then we can use them. No extra charge or loosing out on any money. I mean it all depends on the vendor I suppose but I wouldnt stress to much Smiley smile Just continue to enjoy your engagement for now! Smiley shame

    I鈥檓 really hoping so! We got engaged in 2019 and when we said 2022 everyone said that was so far away but I was hoping things would resolve by then. Here鈥檚 still hoping!! 馃馃徎馃馃徎馃馃徎

    I also just realized we are geographically very close. My initial point still stands, I think we will be ok next year! (Although I know Simcoe/Muskoka has been a bit of a mess lately with covid)

    Honestly, I think we will be okay by next year (im June 2022). Don't cancel yet. If anything I'd base it on what things are like about 4 months prior. You've got loads of time, keep planning as normal and don't let your vendors go if you've found ones you love. My fear was that things will be all booked since so many brides have been waiting to get married, so i locked down my important vendors already

    I think in a couple more months it could be harder to find some vendors but I dont think it will be impossible! Im getting married next may and the only things booked so far are venue, photographer and officiant. Everything else ill start looking at in a couple months

    No nothing yet just the photographer so far I think we might- do you think things will be over booked in a couple of months?

    Have you put down any deposits yet? Could just hold off a couple more months before putting down any
