When Will Weddings Be Allowed In The UK?
The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted many couples’ plans for their nuptials and, although the UK is starting to relax its lockdown restrictions and life is returning to something closer to normal, we’re not likely to be allowed to host large gatherings in the near future.
However, there is a glimmer of hope for any couples who plan to tie the knot later in the summer.
The government is currently looking at how to allow small ceremonies to take place by the end of June, and at present churches and other places of worship are set to reopen on 4 July, the Metro reported.
Northern Ireland has already announced that weddings with up to ten attendees that are held outdoors can take place in June, and it’s expected that the likes of England and Wales will follow a similar kind of system, Woman and Home noted.
The publication suggested that, not only will weddings be much smaller for the time being, but there are also likely to be more weddings hosted on weekdays as couples look to tie the knot as soon as they can, rather than having to wait for a weekend slot to open up next year, many of which are already booked.
Bridal dress designer Holly Winter told the news provider that lockdown has given some couples a chance to think about what they really want from their wedding day and that she has found many are re-evaluating their choices for their big day.
One factor that seems certain, however, is that outdoor weddings will be given the go-ahead before any indoor ceremonies.
