A change of plans

June 2, 2020

Be excused for feeling frustrated and perplexed. Reorganising wedding plans causes uncertainty – the most certainly used buzz word during these times.

'Recent Government guidelines are stated as: Marriages and civil partnerships are a vital part of our society, uniting couples to start their new life together and affording certain legal rights. However, by their very nature, in bringing families and friends together, they are particularly vulnerable to the spread of COVID-19.

The government has been working closely with stakeholders in the wedding industry, the Places of Worship Taskforce and the National Panel for Registration to consider how we are able to allow small marriages and civil partnerships to take place safely'.
You can gather more information here however your wedding venue should know more and be able to direct you further.

'Key principles for planning COVID-19 secure marriages and civil partnerships
For the purposes of a marriage ceremony or civil partnership formation, the number of attendees should ideally be kept to a minimum as far as possible. The lower the number of attendees, the lower the risk of spreading the virus.

However, we understand the unique significance that marriages and civil partnerships hold in people’s lives. For this reason, up to 30 people, but no more, can attend a marriage or civil partnership, where this can be safely accommodated with social distancing in a COVID-19 venue.

This guidance remains under review and may be updated in line with the changing situation'.

Lily Anna Rose helped some clients by drawing on our complimentary postponement service – this consists of a modest A6 postcard – it’s just to help clients during this tricky time. Terms and conditions applied as there with most sectors our challenge was a shortage of available paper stock. In situations where printing was unavailable we were able to design a digital version for sending by email. A small gesture.

Pictured are pocket folders in Baltic Blue with the monogram in aqua foil. Postponement note printed on Arjo Wiggins Keaykolor Natural Parchment with watercolour Thistle and Rose artwork from Etsy.
