Why this petition matters
I want to make a petition about wedding receptions, I believe that if pubs and restaurants are allowed to re open with new rules then wedding receptions should go ahead. People can stay in there bubbles and write down contact information. I believe that you should be able to enjoy your wedding day with your loved ones, I think that if you can go for a pint on a weekend you can have one at a wedding reception. If needs be there could be a rule put in place for all guests to have a test 48hours before or have their temperature taken before entering. 1m rule can still take place and social bubbles. I strongly believe that wedding receptions should be allowed after all this is the biggest Day of people’s lives. I really hope that this can be resolved in some way and with new safety measures. I also believe the father of the bride should be able to walk the bride down the isle if they are from the same household or social bubble, this is a big thing for father and daughter and most can only do it once. It’s supposed to be a happy day. My sister is getting hopefully getting married end of August and she is so upset and so stressed to the point it’s making her ill that she can’t have the wedding day she’s saved so much money for and so much time and looked foward to her whole life. She deserves the day of her dreams not a half hearted wedding along with many others. My dad should be able to not only walk her down the isle but propose a toast to her and her new husband with all our loved ones not just leave after the church. This is a big deal bigger than other things that are open such as pubs etc. I really hope that the prime minister reads this and imagines his wedding day and how he would like to celebrate his big day and understands the pain so many people are going through.
