Getting Married During a Pandemic


It's not an easy time to be engaged. With everything turned topsy-turvy by this pandemic, how can a bride plan the big day of her dreams? Right now couples have to face the tricky choice of a tiny wedding guest list, or postponing for the foreseeable future. In Britain the law is clear, as stated on the government's website.

"No more than 30 people should attend a marriage or civil partnership, where this can be safely accommodated with social distancing in a COVID-19 secure venue. This is the maximum number for all attendees at the event, including the couple and guests. It also includes any third-party suppliers, such as photographers or security, but does not include staff employed by the venue or any third party catering staff.

From 15 August 2020 receptions and other celebrations for weddings and civil partnerships can take place, but only in a COVID-19 secure venue. Such events should not take place in people’s private homes (or adjoining outdoor spaces like gardens), given that these will not have the same COVID-19 Secure measures in place."


Thirty guests barely covers your closest family, and once you add in a photographer and a waitress to pour the champagne, you're down to 26 people. No wonder lots of couples are choosing to elope, and postpone the party until the pandemic has passed. 

What are you choosing to do? Tell me what you think, and chat with other brides on my Instagram page @beforethebigday. It's SUCH a hard decision. I feel so sorry for anyone getting married in 2020 or 2021. For those of you planning to go ahead, here's a few essentials for your wedding day... Many feature my favourite slogan for 2020 - 'Spread love not germs!'
