Has anyone had a wedding in tier 3? We’ve rearranged for the 4th time and we went and booked a whole new wedding to accommodate the 15 guests we were allowed. However we are now at the point where we’re possibly tipping into tier 3. We want to go ahead as I’m completely exhausted and I’m done with crying over cancelled weddings but I just wondered what to expect from a tier 3 covid wedding
Boris is due to confirm what restrictions there will be in the new tier system that will take place after this lockdown. Before lockdown, in tier 3 you could have up to 15 for the ceremony but receptions weren't allowed.
They said on the news this morning that Boris should be outlining on Thursday what areas will be going into tier 3. Sorry it is all a crap time! A lot of us 2020 brides (and grooms) feel your pain! Fingers crossed it will all work out 🤞
I got married a week past saturday in tier 3 Edinburgh. Let me know if i can help answer any questions
I got married on 1st November in a tier 3! Well actually my church was technically in a tier 1 but my reception was tier 3! Our venue were amazing and did everything they could to accommodate us! We had the perfect day! Xx
We got married in tier 3 on 30th October, ceremony was 12 guests as me, the groom & photographer were included in the 15 so it was best man, maid of honour and immediate family only. Alot of family and friends came to the register office to wave us in & out. We had a lovely day, no reception but went for a meal after and got a cocktail delivery to the house from a local company!! We have rearranged the celebration with everyone for October next year, hopefully that can go ahead??!! X
I did not think the photographer was counted as part of your 15. That has been the case in the few weddings I have done this year.
Our covid wedding was lovely we just had me my now husband my mum and dad our photographer and our 2 registrars. Just remember the important thing is you are marrying the person you love, I promise you nothing else will matter on the day I thought I would be worried that I didn't have a big wedding I really wasn't. Best of luck to you and anyone getting married in these times
Yes we got married at the end of July when we had just come out of the first lockdown. We got married in my in-laws back garden. At that time we weren’t allowed to gather inside so had a buffet for our wedding meal outside (in the Scottish rain!!) and only invited our parents, siblings and partners and our maid of honour and best man. We had a fabulous day. We live streamed the ceremony so all of our other guests could join us and we had a great photographer who made us feel special. I didn’t even get to wear my wedding dress but we are planning to get it altered and get photos taken this summer as it looks like our wedding celebration will be cancelled 😞.
We had the best day full of emotion and happy memories. But it was tough not being able to share it with our extended families and friends. I think everyone understood why we did what we did though. And now we are married and couldn’t be happier 🥰 xx
I didnt think there were teirs at the moment?
Where not if in UK whole countries in lockdown.
We are not in tiers it’s a national lockdown and tier 3 you can still have 15 guests if I’m right
Im due to get married in may, we have said we aint going to cancel no matter what happens its our day and we will make it special in our way and have a big party when all this over x
Yes we had a tier 3 wedding. It was wonderful. 15 people including us and no reception. It was so relaxed It wasn't the wedding we planned but I wouldn't change it now it was perfect xx
Got married in December in tier 3. It was wonderful. So relaxed and chilled out, everyone we wanted to be there got to share our amazing day. I wouldnt have changed it. Best decision ive ever made. X
As others have said, we’re no longer in tiers, we’re in a national lockdown. I’d say it’s very likely all the tiering rules will change coming out the other side if it.
I got married at the end of October, the day before lockdown 2.0 was announced, and before the tiering system came in, but we had 8 guests, a socially distanced reception and a 10pm curfew. It was still the happiest day of my life. Xx
Got married 4th november day before last lock down. Only 9 of us and no reception. Was the best day ever. So intimate and relaxed. Best decision ever to have brought wedding forward rather than postpone xx
We had a Covid wedding, in September. We were very lucky to be able to have 30 people, including us, but it was all very relaxing and mostly for us and we loved it. If is stresses you out, just have something small now and have a big reception when all the craziness will be done. Trust me, the days goes on soo fast that you barely have time to enjoy it!
I think the question might be pre lockdown.
I got married on 19th December in tier 3 with 15 people and a meal in a restaurant. It was the most perfect day, I couldn't have wished for better thb. It was amazing xx
Those who had a small wedding due to restrictions... silly question but did you have a first dance? Or was music not permitted?
Yes we got married 23rd October 13 guests plus us and a lovely reception was a great day planning out night do for Oct 2021 hopefully xx
We are in full lock down which means you can't get married unless ur basically on your death bed
We got married 10th october when it was 16 , and honestly it was the best day. Really relaxed and everyone said it was thd best wedding thd had attended. However I think numbers are now 6 as we are in tier 5 , almost total lockdown so no reception either.
We're not in a tier system at the moment, the whole country is in lock-down, I'm afraid so weddings are not permitted unless exceptional circumstances
We got married in September when there were only 15 allowed, it was difficult to choose the 15 as both sides has large family, we went ahead with the help if my best friend who was my matron of honour, that had two days to arrange everything. It was just 6, us, my Matron of honour and her husband, bestman and his wife. My Matron of honour did a 3 course meal and she did her back garden lovley for us. Were planning a blessing and a party in May this year, which I hope will go ahead. It was so romantic. At least I get to wear my dress twice.
We changed from august last year to July this year. We spoke to the venue on Sunday and we are trying to rearrange to next year. We are not able to cancel completely without losing all of our money, and we booked this specific venue as we wanted a huge family gathering. So we decided to wait.
We just went ahead and did it at the registry office with two witnesses. Not what we planned but at least we are married. We can have a party when this is all over.
