Firstly, we hope you and your family are all safe and well. With the rapidly changing nature of the COVID-19 outbreak, information and advice from Government can change quickly. For all the latest Government information on COVID-19 and the measures the Government, and Devolved Governments, are taking, please visit the UK Government website, the Scottish Government website & the Welsh Government website.
The Wedding Business Awards are OPEN as normal
The Wedding Business Awards entries & votes are open and we are still receiving a huge amount. So please keep them coming. To enter your business, click here.
What do we have in place?
We very much hope that the awards events can still go a head as normal. However, we will follow government guidelines and if we cannot run the events as normal, we will announce the finalists & winners online. All certificates will be downloadable from the entrant’s profile and winners trophies will be sent via post.
Voting will still go as normal. We understand that all weddings have now ceased for the foreseeable future. So we understand you may have concerns in the voting process. The voting will carry on as normal. As the voting dates were from 03.01.2019 – 30-07-2020, you are able to still receive votes from last year and the beginning of this year until 23-03-2020.
All entrants will be in the same situation and also understand that entrants will ALL have fewer votes. Even though you will receive fewer votes, all entrants will be in the same boat. So it will be a level playing field. Entrants will receive the voters feedback as normal.
We had a criteria that entrants required to have a minimum of 3 votes to be considered to be a Regional Finalist. Anyone who didn’t receive 3 votes or above would automatically be removed. Due to our current situation, this year, we will remove the requirement of 3 votes. There will be NO minimum number of votes.
We are here for you!
Finally, we understand this is a very scary time for us all. As a community, I think it’s safe to say, we are one of a kind. Businesses and suppliers are coming together to help one another get through this turbulent time. We are here for you. Hopefully, being part of the awards can distract your mind, even if it’s for a few hours. Being part of the awards can have a positive effect on your business and yourself. Looking after your own mental health is just as important as your physical health.
We are hear for you to help you through the process as much as we can. If you want to connect with other like minded businesses i the industry, we have a Facebook group to join. Please click here to join.
