As the pandemic rages on all around us, it seems that the rules regarding what can and can’t be done to help slow the spread of coronavirus change on a daily basis, which makes it exceedingly difficult for people to plan their weddings, as they’re not sure how many people can be invited, where they can be held or even how late the bar can stay open.
On September 14th, for example, it became illegal for people to socialise in groups of more than six in order to help prevent a second wave of covid-19, but wedding ceremonies were exempt from this and were still allowed to be held with 30 people in attendance.
But then on September 22nd, following a steady increase in cases of the virus, the government announced that even more restrictions were going to be introduced, including a 10pm curfew for pubs and restaurants, and even fewer people allowed to attend weddings, with just 15 present instead of 30.
And while attending the wedding in question, people not part of the same household or support bubble should make sure that they follow social distancing measures to really be on the safe side.
As to the actual weddings themselves, these should only be held in covid-secure venues, rather than private homes or gardens because these are unlikely to have the necessary measures in place.
Suffice to say that 2020 has been a very interesting and, no doubt, upsetting and stressful time for many would-be happy couples keen to tie the knot.
With just a few months left until the end of the year, it might perhaps be worth postponing your upcoming nuptials until 2021 if possible, so you know you can have the wedding of your dreams with all your friends and family present to see you take the plunge.
Whenever you do finally get to say your vows, make sure you sort out wedding photo booth hire to really capture your special day to perfection.
