Why this petition matters

Started by Jonathan Bryans

The wedding industry in Ireland is worth over €750,000,000 to the Irish Economy each year and has been impacted massively since the onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic.

The industry comprises of Hotels / Wedding Venues and Wedding Suppliers and there are a huge number of self-employed and business owners in the group.

It is also impacting on the very fabric of society as weddings cannot proceed currently.

Whilst there is reason for the postponement of weddings currently, what is suffocating the wedding industry and couples who were planning their nuptials is lack of clarity in terms of your phased re-opening plan.

The lack of clarity we refer to is around the following two areas:

  1.     The number of guests allowed at weddings from the 20th July & the 10th August 2020.
  2.     The social distancing regulations that may or may not be introduced for the roll out of these phases.

We call on the government to give answers to the above questions and allow:

  1. Venues to plan re-opening
  2. Wedding Suppliers to make plans to help and service couples
  3. Couples to be able to make concrete plans for their own futures

Join your colleagues in the Irish Wedding Industry by signing the petition today.
