Covid - 19 - What it means to ceremonies
In light of what is going on right now, I have had three weddings postponed in less than 24 hours. And I fully understand. With so many news reports and postings in the media and social media, I feel we are really entering the unknown. Better to err on the side of caution!
As a hugger myself, I have to say that I am finding it really difficult not to offer a warm hug to family members at funerals, and I also find it hard not to shake someone's hand when being introduced or meeting for the first time.
However, we all need to remain vigilant, and all need to take the necessary measures to protect ourselves and our families, as well as protecting the people we meet and environments that we frequent.
If you have a ceremony coming up and have concerns, the first thing you should do is contact your venue to enquire if they are still functioning as normal and if your ceremony/reception can still go ahead. There seems to be a bit of a gray area as far as 100 people if a venue has more than one room. Also keep in mind, that 100 people includes your DJ and staff etc.
If you want to change the date with the venue, ask the question - see if they can move your wedding to another date.
Yes there are other providers to consider - photographer, videographer, cake maker, car hire, clothing hire, honeymoon, florist, stylist - and of course your celebrant!
With the couple's I have been in contact with regarding the postponements, they have been on the phone to everyone concerned and the dates have been rescheduled.
I will work with you to the best of my ability to accommodate you in every way I can, rescheduling a date that works with everyone.
I can assure you that you will still get married one way or another!
