The #WhatAboutWeddings campaign has been created to highlight awareness of the critical need for assistance for the £14.7bn wedding industry. Wedding suppliers, venues and couples are paralysed as a result of the pandemic restrictions which have not been lifted in any recognisable form for weddings.
The wedding industry employs 400,000 workers and is worth £14.7bn* to the UK economy every year – and we have grown our sector without relying upon grants or the public purse.
85% of wedding businesses say their wedding business is their main source of income. (Source: The #whataboutweddings August survey for wedding venues and suppliers).
