Wedding Ideas: Covid 19
Under Plan B proposals being considered for England, in addition to wearing masks in more settings, proof that you are either fully vaccinated or medically exempt, would be required in certain settings.
However, for now (November 29th 2021), the government is stopping short of implementing the full Plan B, in favour of introducing masks in limited settings as well as increasing restrictions at borders and offering vaccines to more of the UK population.
Masks aren't required in any hospitality settings, which is great news for weddings.
To ensure that weddings continue to be safe and well-planned events with the easing of restrictions, The UK Weddings Taskforce has worked alongside Government to produce a risk matrix that can be used to look at how best to plan your wedding in order to keep yourself, your guests, and your suppliers as safe as possible. Here you can find their guide along with other resources from Government sources and Guides for Brides that will help you keep everyone safe at your wedding.
Following Boris Johnson’s announcement on June 14th, the new rules for weddings will come into effect from June 21st. Couples will be able to have more than 30 people at their wedding from that date, as long as there is space for social distancing.
There is a requirement that all reasonable steps will be taken to reduce the spread of Covid-19 at weddings.
The government guidance requires a risk assessment for all weddings taking place at a Covid-secure venue. If your wedding is taking place at a Covid-secure venue, they will be responsible for conducting the assessment.
But, if you’re organising your own wedding for over 30 people, for example in a private garden or outdoor public venue, you - the event organiser - will need to complete the risk assessment yourself. Here’s how…
With our live streaming tool, you can involve your guests in your whole wedding day, even if they can't be there in person.
All you need is a wifi connection, a mobile phone and someone to start the live stream on a laptop or computer, and a link from us.
Depending on where you are heading, overseas travel may be restricted. So, destination weddings and honeymoons may seem difficult to plan or even consider! But, many couples are still dreaming of an overseas location for their special day and, as the country unlocks, are feeling more confident about booking. So, we explored how planning a wedding abroad might look post-lockdown as well as the top overseas wedding destinations.
Everyone involved in weddings understands the importance of guests feeling safe and comfortable socialising. Ensuring that everyone attending is Covid free is the simple solution.
