Hi all, We've decided to keep our wedding for September 12, 2020. We are planning to have a larger reception in the far future (no date set and I don't plan to set one for awhile). I'm still inviting around 60 guests and I would like to put a statement on the back of the invitations letting people know that I understand they may not be comfortable coming to this 2020 event because of the virus and there will be a reception at a later time. I'm choosing to continue with my wedding during a pandemic and it won't hurt my feelings one bit if people don't come. I just want to convey it is a no judgment situation, everyone has to decide what is best for them and their family. Has anyone done this, and is it necessary?
I was thinking something like: "We recognize the concerns COVID-19 has brought around traveling and gathering in groups. We understand that because of this, some of our family and friends may choose not to travel at this time. While we would love to have everyone there, we support whatever decision you make and plan to have a separate reception to celebrate with more comfortably with our loved ones in the future!"
