Like many people my fiance and I planned our summer 2021 wedding well over a year ago..... Now that it's getting a bit closer we are wondering are people now postponing or waiting it out due to COVID?

    Hello,

    We just postponed our from June 26th 2021, to June 25th 2022. I contacted the vendors I have booked, and they all had our new date. We are only doing this because we dont want restrictions. Both our Venue and DJ stated there still would be for June most likely, as the Vaccine timelines have been pushed back a little. Our DJ had a post on her social media indicating she is not sure how much dancing would be happening depending on restrictions. Anyways, I truly think its all timing and what you want, and I personally didnt want to wait too long if I was postponing. We have about 80 people, not big but above restrictions most likely for 2021. Also with so many weddings being postponed from 2020, or 2021, and newly engaged couples, not sure what 2022 is going to look like. AH!

    Best of luck, you do you! Sending lots of Support!!

    Just postponed our June 5th, 2021 wedding to August 28, 2021. Really didn't want to do that but things didn't appear to be changing much by then Smiley sad. Sooo hoping we are ok for August!! We are already only having 40 people. Not willing to reduce the number. Fingers crossed for all of us this spring and summer!

    We are thinking of doing the same thing. I also feel like I just want to book a "party" (don't want to call it a wedding reception a year later) so that it actually happens! But it's tough to decide that... what if you're 9 months pregnant... better yet what if you're in labour!

    Have secured my wedding date for 1 September 2021. I live in Vancouver, but all our family + friends are from elsewhere in the world. Worried international travel restrictions will in place then still, however at the same time being cautiously optimistic things will work out. Hoping for the best for our wedding this year, but thinking of a plan B too!

    I thought about that. I have a few friends that said they would do a reception later (due to having kids), and not one of them actually ended up doing the reception so I have a feeling mine would be the same so that worries me.

    Whatever the restrictions are we are getting married. Although we are working on postponing our reception.

    We are still a go for June 2021. None of our vendors have called to say anything.. so we will wait and see how things go. I am still actively planning and have paid all our deposits.

    However, we have made a plan B. To move our wedding to our backyard if needed. This would only happen if the indoor gatherings were still restricted, and if we had to reduce the guest list to 10. Then we would move the date of our venue to allow for a reception in the future.

    We're trying to figure out what we're doing with our June 26, 2021 wedding. At this point, our art gallery wedding of 120 isn't going to happen, so we're thinking of using that venue as an anniversary party later on and having an outdoor wedding where we can have more people and better social distancing. The struggle is not knowing anything about gathering sizes or what were going to be allowed to do, so I don't even know where to start when planning.

    My fiance and I are going ahead with our August 7 wedding as of right now. We already postponed our first date August 8 2020 back in May and don't really want to postpone again. The only way that we'd postpone again is if gathering sizes don't increase for then 10. I would wait until maybe the end of March early April before you make a final decision about your wedding. Things might look up by then and you can still have your big day. Just make sure that your venue and your vendors have in your contracts that you're able to switch to a new date if you need to with no extra cost.
