Can I have a marquee wedding in 2021?
We wish we could just say yes. Unfortunately it's not as simple as that.
The government's road map says:
- From 12th April: weddings and events of up to 15 in licensed venues
- From 17th May: weddings and events of up to 30 in licensed premises and – this is new – in private gardens!
- From 21st June: No restrictions was the promise. We are awaiting further guidance
Of course following the roadmap is dependent on hospital numbers and deaths going down; and the vaccination programme continuing to roll out succesfully; and low infection rates; and no difficult variants emerging.
So although the prospects for weddings are much more encouraging than they were, it's not a done deal yet.
It may also be sensible to consider the limits on foreign travel for overseas friends and family. And to consider that some people may not feel confident about attending a closely packed wedding.
Socially distanced wedding marquees are still an option. Below are two examples for small events that were permitted at the time.
Or if your circumstances suit an all out dream wedding this summer, browse the gorgeous examples in our wedding gallery.
