After a ‘bump in the road’ at the end of July, seated wedding receptions of up to 30 people have been given the green light from the 15th August in England. For those couples sticking to their original wedding dates in 2020 this is fantastic news. They can now celebrate and raise a glass with those near and dear, plus a few good friends!
We have been doing that here too at the Something Blue HQ – raising a glass! August is a special time for us as we celebrate our own wedding anniversary and a birthday. I look back at all the planning involved with our wedding in my hometown of North Carolina, in the good old US of A, when the two of us were actually already living here in Sussex - I give great thanks to my wedding planner…my mother!!! I honestly do not know how we would have managed in today’s climate, but one thing is for sure - my Mom would have done her best to find a way! I expect we would have needed to be very flexible. My heart goes out to all couples who have had to cancel or change their plans.
Looking at August in the petrol tank half full kind of way (remember we are a wedding car hire service!), the wedding industry is slowly starting back up. A lot like when you start up a Vintage VW. It takes a few moments for the engine to warm up but once warm, that VW is reading to go! Wedding suppliers and venues have warmed up in the heat of the summer and we are all ready to help you on your wedding journey! With the seated reception being allowed caterers and cake designers will be able to get to work in their kitchens again. Event planners and prop hire will be able to get back to what they do best; creating a day for you to remember. And here at Something Blue Wedding Car Hire, we can hit the road and transport you to your special day.
Don’t leave your chauffeur driven transport to the last minute. Remember that 2021 will be a busy year, with weddings deferred from this year plus the normal yearly demand. We have been talking to venues and suppliers who think that weddings will likely to be happening almost every day in 2021 you wouldn’t want to miss the (VW) bus!
