Coronavirus: The Wedding Industry

The wedding industry has been "left out in the cold" during the pandemic, Labour has said as it urges the government to provide more support.
The party estimates that the sector has lost out on more than £430m due to cancelled or postponed weddings.
Wedding receptions have either been banned or restricted to a limited number of people.
The government said wedding businesses could access the government's coronavirus support package.
But Labour has argued that some businesses are ineligible for support as they are technically still trading despite having little or no custom due to Covid restrictions.

Cutting the Cake

Wedding Etiquette, Traditions & Customs:
Cutting the Cake

The cake is traditionally cut after the speeches and toasts, and would normally conclude the formal part of the wedding reception. It was believed, in order for the bride to bear children, she (with the help of her groom) should cut the first slice. Today the first cut is more symbolic to the couple's shared future together. The couple would normally pose for photographs just prior to cutting the first slice, allowing guests to take snaps of the occasion. The cake is said to spread good fortune to all who eat it, hence the reason for sending a slice to all those who were unable to attend the wedding.
