As of two days ago, the decision to ‘lockdown’ the UK was made, and as a result, all weddings and events were to be cancelled or postponed until who-knows-when. I know that there are so many couples out there right now who are utterly devastated that their special day has been put on hold. Not only has this affected those who had weddings booked this year, but it’s also affecting venues and suppliers across the industry, PLUS couples who were hoping to book their wedding next year (like myself).
Debbie and I had been planning a wedding next year, we booked a venue however over the last month we had fallen in love with a different venue, and decided to re-book AND change our date from October to a summer 2021 wedding. We’ve been in touch with our new venue, and not surprisingly they are holding all bookings for next year until all of the summer weddings this year have been re-scheduled. Being in the industry, we totally understand that they’re 100% doing the right thing, however this does leave us a little uncertain to wether or not we’ll even be able to have our wedding next year at all. We also haven’t booked all of our suppliers yet, and by the looks of things, mostly all suppliers are following in the steps of our new venue, and holding dates until everyone else has been re-scheduled.
