Wedding in year 2021 with a knit sweater or knit cardigan
Wedding boom in 2021?
Will it be possible to celebrate a wedding ceremony with more than only the couple theirself? Today, as I am writing this article, only the bride and groom can be present. For some, this may be the dream wedding, others may prefer relatives and closest friends attending their wedding.
What's next for weddings in pandemic times?
Last year at the end of October before the second "lockdown light", I assumed; we're back to normal. I had a lot of orders again. With the 2nd lockdown things went downhill again, as nobody knows exactly when a normal wedding is possible.

Should you wait and postpone your wedding?
I could imagine the situation easing from May onwards. It is getting warmer again and some vaccinations have been given. Nevertheless, if I were to plan my own wedding, then I would try to make myself independent of a wedding location. So why not have a wedding in your parents 'or friends' garden; a caterer might be found with short notice. Only invite your dearest guests. The trend is towards "intimate weddings". Only the closest friends and relatives are invited.

Are there still appointments at the registry office?
In Berlin the dates are already quite booked out, many couples have postponed their autumn 2020 date to year 2021. That is why many weddings will already focus on 2021. The future bride and groom should secure an appointment at the registry office and church. Getting your favorite appointment was a challenge even without Corona.
I still remember my wedding planning in 2006, the summer dates for 2007 were already taken for the weekends, so we got married in autumn. In September we had wonderful sunshine at the champagne reception on the Elbe a river floating through Hamburg. Thanks to my own knitted jacket, I wasn't cold. I knitted the jacket with fine mohair. On the back I knitted the writing "BRIDE" with golden yarn.
This was the beginning for my label Beemohr.. Nowadays we knit a variety of sweaters, jackets, bolero and loops for brides. All models can be found here.

How can the couple spend their honeymoon?
Spontaneously I would say: in the garden on the deck chair with a well-stocked cocktail bar. The advantage here is you don't have to go through the latest rules and regulations and go on a vacation full of restrictions. If you want to travel abroad, you will very likely have to show proof of vaccination and, in the worst case, be in quarantine. In addition, many hotels are restricted in their services when they reopen:
- no buffet
- no swimming pool or sauna
- in the worst case, the restaurant and bar are closed 😱
If you perfer to travel, the Baltic Sea, Lake Constance or another place in Germany would be a nice alternative. That was already the holiday trend in 2020. Even if not voluntarily. For outdoor fans, a camping holiday might be the right thing, or the couple can rent a tiny house in the middle of nature.
Despite Corona, I wish you a pleasant wedding planning, with creative ideas and more opportunities - yours Sabine.
