Coronavirus Wedding Planning

April 23, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Many couples have already had to postpone their wedding days and more may still be impacted by Coronavirus. Please do not worry I am here to make things as seamless as possible. Dates in 2020 and 2021 are booking fast but I do still have availability so please get in touch. I am also taking bookings for 2022 at the moment as well. Hope to hear from you! Check Availability

 

As there is a degree of uncertainty around Coronavirus and returning to normality I thought it would be helpful to share the strategies of how to cope at this time and ensure you are being cautious. None of us know the outcome of Coronavirus or what impact it will have on our lives in the months to come, we may need to wear masks and maintain social distancing so its worth considering how it may impact our wedding day. 

1. Consider options and stay calm

We aren't sure if when restrictions are lifted if things will go back to normal so other options may be considered if you don't want to postpone. Seating could be spaced apart, ceremonies held outdoors, discuss options with your venue who will be happy to adapt and change as necessary. If older or vulnerable at risk guests cannot attend then consider allowing them to attend virtually so they don't miss out on your big day.

Most weddings are small gatherings so hopefully it won't impact too much but if government guidelines include wearing masks as well social distancing then this will impact your photographs and memories immeasurably.  Carefully consider your photos when deciding to go ahead over this period. Although it could result in the quirkiest wedding I have ever photographed!

2. Enjoy a mock wedding celebration

Why not enjoy your wedding day with friends and family by virtually connecting and celebrating your original wedding date. While in lockdown some couples aren't letting Coronavirus spoil their day and they are enjoying a mock wedding to mark the occasion.  A great way to hook up with friends and family and celebrate instead of feeling miserable that your wedding has been postponed. 

This is sure to lighten the heart and spirit bringing people together to sing and dance.  

3. No ceremonies 'until restrictions lifted'

Marriages and civil partnerships are not taking place on the advice of UK and Scottish governments to help delay the spread of Covid-19.

A marriage may not proceed in Scotland without the issue of a Schedule. Registrars have been instructed to suspend the issue of Schedules for marriages and civil partnerships. NRS will take advice about when it is safe to lift this restriction and when they do it may still mean social distancing will have to be adhered. 

Something you could consider instead of postponing is to elope and party later. If you do elope I can be a witness if required and would love to help you out. 

I am flexible and will wear a mask and maintain social distancing adhering to government guidelines at all times. 

4. Postponement

Many of  you have already had to postpone your special days and I am aware that more may have to rescheduled if your date is going to impacted by Coronavirus. Please do not worry I am here to make things as seamless as possible. There is no charge, and provided I am free on the new date, we just move the existing booking to the new date. Easy and simple, no fuss. 

Hopefully this helps you plan your wedding day around Coronavirus and provide peace of mind however I would remind you that dates are becoming limited so please get in touch as soon as your venue confirms availability.
