Weddings have made a massive comeback after being continuously put off for two years. Caterers and other businesses involved are working around the clock to keep up with demand as couples seek to finally tie the knot. The rare Friday celebration has become the norm.
Chamber for Small and Medium Enterprises (GRTU) head Abigail Mamo said that spring 2022 was always planed to be busy ‘as we hoped to be back to normality after two years of pandemic’.
And that expectation was surpassed since weddings had to be redistributed. The government had announced several restrictions for mass events including weddings.
After the initial outright ban was lifted, guests had to be seated and lists limited to a small count of people. Despite some deciding to hold a small wedding for loved ones, other waited it out and are set to celebrate the wedding in traditional Maltese fashion, with upwards of 500 guests.
