Wedding Industry Under Lockdown
We are currently living through historical times people.
In my lifetime I have never witnessed a lockdown at such unprecedented proportions, not just in the UK, but throughout the world.
I have been working in the travel industry for over 30 years and I have never seen 90% of the world's flights grounded. Events such as the sad times of 9/11 or the unpronounceable let alone spell-able Icelandic volcano springs to mind, but nothing on this global scale and for this timescale.
So that leads us on to your wedding.
Well the whole wedding industry ground to a halt, with weddings banned for at least the next three weeks, no one can or will predict when this embargo will be lifted.
Zoom to the rescue
A small amount of couples are getting married on Zoom*, I am guessing you would need at least 3 different screens.
- Clergyman or minister / registrar
- Bride and groom
*Other reputable video calling platform are available, however across devices Zoom is pretty good, and the security has been stepped up.
We have found that lots of bride and grooms have simply rebooked their wedding and their stag and hen weekend for the same date in 2021. So watch out next year is going to be busy!
Some couples have rejigged their wedding dates for Autumn or even Christmas 2020.
Once all lockdown measures have been released it's going to be business as usual, so don't think this lockdown is going to be the norm, it isn't. Thrive is what human beings do best and by the end of it, boy will we all need a stag do!
So what happens to the lockdown stag party?
Well first and foremost check out our stag do ideas under lockdown, this will help you with what you need and ideas on what you can do.
Remember, a lockdown quarantined stag do shouldn't replace your actual stag weekend, you'll need some decent social interactivity after all this has blown over.
Stay safe everyone
