People Are Having Drive-Thru Weddings And It's Genius

As many weddings across the country have been postponed, postponed again and are now only allowed to go ahead with 30 guests thanks to the pandemic, a select few have come up with a genius loophole to the problem.

Not content with having their big days ruined, brides and grooms to be are holding drive-thru weddings, where their friends and family can come and bid them good wishes from the comfort of their car.

The clever get-around - which maintains social distancing at all times - means newlyweds don't have to cut their large wedding guest lists down to just a handful of their nearest and dearest.

Following intimate ceremonies, the couple can stand outside their venue white a conveyor of cards (holding very well-dressed guests) can each take their turns to say their congratulations.

It's hardly ideal, but with all that's going on right now, we think it' a lovely idea - and we're already seeing drive-thru weddings taking place all over the world.

Nicky Wynne-Williams and Shaz Russell, from Durham, are one couple who decided to do their wedding drive-thru style.

The couple managed to tie the knot with social distancing guidelines while still having all their loved ones present.

Nicky and Shaz were due to get married in front of 180 guests in Newcastle on 13th June but the pandemic threw their plans into chaos as guest numbers were slashed to 30 by the government.

Instead, they invited all of their loved ones to drive up to their ceremony while staying in their vehicles; the couples themselves also stayed in their vintage car right up until the last moment so as not to mingle with guests.

For those who aren't willing to give up on their hopes of a 2020 wedding, we think this is a brilliant idea.
