A second wave of Coronavirus has seen a further blow to weddings in 2020, and appears to be restricted for at least another six months. The Coronavirus pandemic has seen weddings all over the UK cancelled, postponed and limited for the entirety of 2020, and now with a second wave being projected, the Prime Minister has come out to restrict weddings further, for the next six months at least.
Wedding parties are to be reduced to parties of only 15 people allowed to be in attendance, announced by Boris Johnson in Parliament, in an effort to reduce the catastrophic spread of the Coronavirus. As you can imagine, this is a further blow to not only couples all over the country who were planning to get married in the next six months, but for the entire wedding industry too.
Although not formally confirmed that six months will be the indefinite amount of time that weddings will be restricted to these measures, but the Prime Minister himself has said it will be ‘likely’ to remain for that amount of time after the restrictions set in on Monday 28th September 2020.
Currently up to 30 people are allowed to attend weddings and funerals, with funerals remaining at a 30 person limit whilst wedding guests are halved.
