The coronavirus has been devastating for people across Pakistan and the world.Many people have had to postpone weddings and hospitality has been affected with this too.

Arguably, it would be a lot safer to attend a wedding reception with friends and family plus mitigation to keep everyone safe, than watch a film or go to a restaurant with multiple strangers. If the suppliers and guests are happy to go ahead with safety measures in place, it should be their choice whether to attend or not.

Recently, there have been scenes of thousands of people gathering at markets and Parks. If these groups of people can make their own decisions on what to do, brides and grooms should have the decision to meet safely with their friends and family, as no doubt, these gathering will be a fraction of the crowds seen in the markets and parks. 

Those that have been planning weddings for years are being told that we cannot have our special day! I know I have certainly come into contact with more people, queuing to go into a supermarket and attending work, than I will do with guests at our wedding. Whilst we understand the virus is still with us and there is still a risk, if mitigation is applied, this will make it safe for everyone.

We are calling upon the Prime Minister to have a look on this matter . If mitigation and hospitality guidelines are followed and safety measures put in place, including sanitation stations, this will lower the risk to all and allow everyone to enjoy what should be a celebratory day. Couples have worked hard for their special day and should be allowed to celebrate with their guests, as well as enjoy the build up to one of the biggest days of their lives.
