Finally, there's a light at the end of the (never-ending) tunnel!
Boris has come good and gave us dates:
Wedding and reception of 15 people from 12th Aril
Wedding and reception of 30 people from 17th May
No restrictions (hopefully) from 21st June
We still need clarity thought as this road map is rather vague.
For example; what are the actual guidance on rules for weddings as we reopen?
- Are children and suppliers included in limits to numbers?
- There are still issues with a close contact for hair and makeup services and retail opening dates with lead times for all couples in March to May.
- Why is there such parity with other live events at 2K-10K in May compared to wedding numbers?
- There is no clarity on rules for outdoor weddings and private land receptions.
Hopefully, we get some answers to these questions soon.
Luckily the most amazing @whataboutweddingsofficial is fighting in our corner, pestering the government on daily basis = heroes!!
I have to admit, I'm cautiously optimistic. It all hangs in the balance still if people don't stick to the rules.
But at least it's a step in the right direction. We finally have something to look forward to. We can start planning again. We can start making decisions again.
If you had to postpone already and wanted to have a largish wedding before July this year, this isn't the news you were hoping to hear, I know. It's pants for couples whose wedding plans got turned upside down a good few times already. Don't give up. We can do this together. One last push lovers. Nearly there.
Fear not, the whole of the wedding industry is armed and ready to pick up where ever you found yourself at right now. It's going to get crazy busy for us very quickly, so if you want help and solutions, the time to reach out is NOW!
Don't be afraid to fire off emails, call us, DM us as soon as possible.
If you need help with your wedding design and planning, including help with finding the right wedding venue and suppliers, I am here and ready to help you, especially now that you're thinking "How can I organise everything in a few months?!"
That's why you turn to a pro.
Whole lotta love,
