There’s no denying that the pandemic is a joyless beast. As well as stopping us from drinks at the pubs, hugging our loved ones and generally having normalcy, it has robbed us of one of the greatest pleasures in life—weddings. I know I’d give any opportunity to dress up, eat great food and booze and dance all night until I take off my heels and go barefoot. Of course, my missing out is nothing compared to the couples who have had to postpone their nuptials. Thankfully, this month, small weddings are now permitted to take place. Civil ceremonies and receptions with no more than 30 people are allowed. However, due to the often last-minute nature of the restriction easing announcements, there will be plenty of brides scrambling to find an outfit. Perhaps the big-day dress they thought they’d be wearing in their grand South of France venue doesn’t quite work at the local city hall or the flouncy tulle full-skirted gown feels over-the-top for a more minimal event.
