Luke Combs Still Hoping to Get Married This Year: “There’s Not Much We Can Do About It But Plan Ahead”

Nash Daily News - Thu, 05/28/2020 - 13:37

After getting engaged in November 2018, Luke Combs and Nicole Hocking were planning to get married this year.

Although the couple has never publicly revealed the official wedding date, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has made planning the big day a big problem. Variables like location, venue, scheduling, travel and the health of guests are all major concerns for anyone currently planning a wedding.

The “Beautiful Crazy” singer was a virtual guest on Nights With Elaina on May 27, telling host Elaina Smith that he’s still holding out hope that the ceremony takes place in 2020.

“We obviously hope that that happens,” says Luke. “Obviously, things are day to day, and that decision ultimately is not really up to us. I guess it depends on regulations and the way all this stuff shakes out. So I don’t know. We’ll see. Obviously, we would both love to [have the wedding], and hope that that happens sooner rather than later. But also, we want to be safe for our grandparents and different folks like that. There’s not much we can do about it but plan ahead.

“We definitely considered [a very small wedding], but my fiancée has put so much planning into this thing. I think we’re pretty set on what we’re gonna do and whenever that is, I guess we’ll find out soon enough.”
