How the wedding industry is struggling under strict coronavirus restrictions

By now, wedding season should be reaching a triumphant end, thousands of bouquets thrown and garters tossed, with vendors retreating with fatigue. This year, of course, it never really got started.

Like most in the industry, Marianna Vaki, founder of London-based cake makers Whisk and Drizzle, began 2020 with a diary full of bookings but due to ongoing restrictions, she has been able to fulfil just 10 per cent of those orders, many of which had to be downsized. The rest of her brides have moved their weddings to next year, with some considering postponing again to 2022. If they do, she faces a second year with little-to-no income and the prospect that her business might not survive. “If weddings don’t resume next year, a lot of us won’t be here in 2022,” she says, adding that she is having to look for another job

Asian Wedding Venue Owner slams Government Restrictions

The owner of a South Asian wedding venue in Bolton has revealed that the impact of Covid-19 has been huge.

Bolton Excellency is a grand wedding venue, with one hall able to fit 1,200 guests and others capable of seating hundreds.

However, due to current government restrictions, weddings are now limited to 15 people.

No weddings have been held at the venue since the initial lockdown in March 2020.

Nusrat Khan, who runs the venue alongside her husband, said:

“It has affected us massively but I think people don’t really understand that so many businesses are linked onto the venue – cars, florists, cakes, decorations.

“The financial impact is a loss of approximately £35 million for 2020 to the group of business we represent in the north alone.

“This is further compounded by the myth that we will have a bumper year in 2021.

“This is not the case as

    ST. LOUIS, MO (KMOV) — Jessica Ly and her fiance, Ryan, are scrambling after they say they learned last week about St. Louis City’s restrictions on dancing, a cocktail hour, and mingling for their wedding, which is happening on Saturday, October 10.

“Being on social media, I could see so many weddings happening that allowed dancing and cocktail hour but mine didn’t,” said Ly. “I was confused as to why am I the only bride that can’t have dancing or a cocktail hour.”

The couple is having their ceremony and reception at the Fox Theater. Ly said she and her wedding planner received an email from the city last week stating: “We have asked venues to restrict dancing, suggesting that the only dancing be traditional bride/groom and parent dances.”

The email also states traditional cocktail parties are not allowed. Instead, the email states:

St. Louis couple says the city gave them unfair wedding restrictions

Posted on by iwano@_84

ST. LOUIS – Just days before a couple’s dream wedding, the event has become a bit of a nightmare.

The bride-to-be says the City of St. Louis is selectively enforcing COVID-19 restrictions, ruining her plans and costing a lot of money. City officials deny doing so.

It’s three days before Ryan Cauley’s and Jessica Ly’s big day. Though the bride is in good health, she is sickened by what’s just come her way.

“I never expected to not be excited for this day,” Ly said.

The wedding and reception are scheduled for Saturday night at the Fox Theater.

Ly and her wedding planner say they were blindsided one week ago by news of restrictions that were not in place for other weddings in the City of St. Louis.

They say the champagne diva and rolling table are already paid for and coming from Tennessee won’t be allowed.

Sex parties allowed but dancing at weddings banned under Queensland’s COVID-19 restrictions

Posted on by iwano@_84

COVID-19 regulations that prohibit wedding guests from dancing but allow group sex at approved swinger clubs and adult parties should be reviewed, according to a member of the Gold Coast entertainment industry.

Wedding entertainer Nik Edser said “we have had so many bookings cancelled because of the dancing rules” and has called for the State Government to ease the restriction.

“The irony is if I was invited to a wedding this weekend to attend with my wife and I wanted to dance with her there, then I wouldn’t be allowed to,” he said.

“But if we decided
