Well, to put it bluntly, what an absolute s***storm this is proving to be!!!
Covid-19 has been, very much, the elephant in the room for small businesses such as ours while we plan for uncertain times ahead. Brides and grooms, we totally get you and empathise with your feelings of worry in these troubling times. But please don’t panic!
To our March, April and May brides, WE SEE YOU and will do as much as we can to help at this difficult time and we will do our very best to accommodate you all.
Here’s our current position:
Bus and Bug Vintage Weddings will be continuing with business as usual and we have no plans to cancel any weddings or events unless advised otherwise by government or local authorities, so please rest assured that being at your wedding is still our absolute priority.
With regard to payments and cancellations, our standard terms and conditions remain in place however we understand that this is causing a conundrum for many of our couples and urge you to make the decision that is right for you and your family/ guests; whether this means going ahead as planned, or postponing, we will always do our best to accommodate your needs. If you are considering postponing, please do get in touch as soon possible to discuss your new date. Of course, if you just want to chat about any concerns or special measures, please do call or email at any time, we are here to help above all.
Our vehicles already have a basket on board containing tissues, antibacterial hand sanitizer (while stocks last of course) and wipes for your use and as a precaution, all our drivers will be instructed to wear gloves and the vehicles will be thoroughly cleaned and handles disinfected before and after use to help the spread of the virus.
We have currently removed all photobooth props such as masks and glasses that are worn on or near the face to help minimise the risk of transmission, however hats, wigs and prop boards will still be available for use. We already clean and sanitize our vehicles and all of our props before and after each event and will be using antibacterial wipes on seats, handles and any other areas that could transmit the virus regularly throughout each event as an additional measure. Tissues, wipes (and hand sanitizer where available) will be made available for all guests to use throughout the duration of your event. Staff will continue to wash their hands regularly and avoid close contact with guests.
The health and wellbeing of our passengers, guests and staff is our absolute priority and as such, we politely request that anyone feeling unwell, or exhibiting any symptoms of cold, flu or Covid 19, please refrain from entering or travelling in our vehicles on the day. Likewise, should any of our staff become unwell, appropriate cover will be sought.
From a small business perspective, this is going to have a huge effect on us and those effects will not be known for some time. We would like to thank you for your continued support and urge you to continue supporting your small local businesses at this awful time. Hopefully the situation will settle soon and we will all have a clearer picture of what the future holds.
To all our 2021 and 2022 brides, we haven’t forgotten about you! <3
Stay safe everyone x
