Weddings – Couples deposit refund scheme extended

Following lengthy talks and representation we are pleased to announce that the SME Chamber and its Wedding Section Committee have been successful in the following:

  • Extending the scheme to cover 2021 at well

  • Covering BOTH postponement of weddings and cancellations

Government Press Release available here.

We are aware that you were encountering numerous difficulties dealing with clients due to the numerous postponements and increase in cancellations. As we had advised you are not obliged to refund the deposits since it is not your fault that the weddings cannot take place. Now you can direct any clients that would have lost their deposit to claim it back from this scheme and avoid complications and confrontation.

Apart from this we wanted to remind you some other wins we have managed to achieve for your sector:

We are also working on the following:

  • Seeking clarifications from the authorities about some aspects in the Covid guidelines, we will let members know once these are available

  • Working on the gradual return to normal weddings
