If you are planning a wedding in another country or in Canada, outside of British Columbia, please contact us directly with any Covid-19 concerns.

If your wedding is in British Columbia AFTER April 8th, 2022, you will not have any restrictions and can disregard the following information.

If your wedding is BEFORE April 8th, 2022 please continue reading.

Due to the current restrictions and circumstances pertaining to Covid-19, our company is taking the following steps to do our part to comply with the instructions provided by the Canadian government, and appointed medical professionals:

  • Please be advised that venues may be checking your guest's vaccine status prior to them entering your wedding on the day of. This policy is in place until April 8th, 2022.

  • Some venues are leaving vaccination checks up to the venue renter independently (you the couple). While we support the government's policies and our team is fully vaccinated, SRW will not be held responsible for checking vaccine status. We do have some recommendations for third party companies you can hire to check vaccine status should your venue require you to take on this responsibility. This policy is in place until April 8th, 2022.

  • Some venues are asking vendors to provide proof of vaccination upon entering your wedding. This is a "grey area" and is up to each individual venue. Please check with your venue if your vendors must be vaccinated or ensure the vendors you are booking have had at least one vaccination. This can be anyone from those delivering your rental items to the photographer or even officiant. This policy is only in place until April 8th, 2022.

  • All planners and coordinators will be wearing masks during any and all functions at their OWN discretion.

  • Some venues still require a Communicable Diseases Plan in place. Please ask your venue for one and if they cannot provide this, we will be happy to assist at no additional cost.

  • Indoor weddings occurring at this time can only proceed without capacity restrictions and dancing is permitted. Venues can determine their own table limitations. Masks are no longer required.

  • Outdoor weddings occurring at this time can proceed at full capacity and dancing is permitted at outdoor events. Masks are not mandatory.

  • We will continue planning for 2022, 2023 and 2024 with added contingency plans and new precautions in place reflecting what is currently ordered by health officials at the time of booking, and the time of the wedding.

  • We are now taking in person meetings.

  • Destination Weddings can only be booked for January 2023 or later at this time.
