Wedding venues look to rebound from COVID-19 | WJHL

WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) – With wedding season now upon us, Northeast Tennessee wedding venues are looking to rebound as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
Also helping, gatherings of up to 50 people are now allowed.
Wedding and event planners told News Channel 11’s Blake Lipton many couples who had their weddings scheduled for early spring have rescheduled to the fall or next year.
“It’s definitely been a roller coaster ride,” said Kelly Story, wedding planned for Storybrook Events.
Story said she has had her hands full with rescheduling.
However, because Storybrook Farms only allows a maximum of 24 people for weddings, there has been some upside for the business.

Wedding venues refusing refunds for cancelled events | The Scotsman

Wedding venues refusing refunds for cancelled events

Wedding venues are potentially breaking the law by exploiting unfair terms and conditions to avoid refunding couples for cancellations due to coronavirus, an investigation has claimed.

Of 25 couples who contacted consumer watchdog Which?, 20 said their wedding venue refused to offer a refund or made the process for obtaining a refund worry after their original date was cancelled or postponed due to the Coronavirus crisis.
A similar proportion said they had not been offered like-for-like dates or offered a refund if the price for the postponed date was cheaper. 17 couples said their venue has charged a fee to rebook or cancel their wedding and 15 couples said their venue has introduced new terms and conditions.
Large gatherings - including weddings - were banned by the UK government on 23 March, alongside a range of other lockown measures, in a bid to stop the virus spreading.

Preparing wedding venues ahead of the start of the season

Preparing wedding venues ahead of the start of the season

CERRO GORDO COUNTY, Iowa - A wedding is an important and fun celebration in someone's life.
But with the coronavirus pandemic throwing a wrench in all facets of life, and forcing the temporary closure of services and businesses like wedding venues, it left many couples forced to delay the big day.
However, there's good news: wedding venues are allowed to reopen as of today in Iowa, though with new guidelines.
Ahead of the delayed start to the wedding season, Diamond Oak owner Scott Bultje is preparing his picturesque venue that overlooks the Winnebago River outside of Mason City and Clear Lake to adapt to those new guidelines. For instance, you'll see tables being spaced out a bit more from each other, with each table having a maximum of 6 seats, PPE being available for staff, limiting occupancy to half capacity, and not allowing self-service food options like buffets and drink stations, with staff manning them instead.
Despite the changes, Bultje is wanting to make sure that the special day is monumental and memorable.

Wedding venues hoping for answers as more wedding dates are impacted by the pandemic

Wedding venues hoping for answers as more wedding dates are impacted by the pandemic

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - As some businesses start reopening their doors, one industry that hasn't seen any relief yet is the wedding industry.
Couples can now have a marriage ceremony but the big question is on having a reception with more than ten people.
Normally the event spaces at Roca Berry Farm would be bustling with brides all wedding season long.
"We have every single Friday, Saturday and Sunday booked from March to mid-November so it's a lot," said Jordan Schaefer with Roca Berry Farm.
Instead of spending time hosting weddings, Jordan has been taking calls from unhappy couples.
"I get 10 to 15 couples calling me every day in panic mode asking what they can do, what guidelines there will be and there's nothing more frustrating than being able to say I don't know," said Shaefer.
Jordan is hoping Lancaster County and the Department of Health and Human Services will be able to at the very least provide them with some answers.

Meet Evita Loca, the Designer Who Made Vashtie’s Durag Wedding Veil | Complex

Meet Evita Loca, the Designer Who Made Vashtie’s Durag Wedding Veil

Vashtie had plans for a big, celebratory wedding, but due to Covid-19, they had to be postponed. But she and her husband, Emil Boye, opted to get married secretly at City Hall wearing attire that was unexpected, but made sense for the couple.
"To suitable tradition I wore all white, but to be true to myself I donned an ensemble consisting of a white Supreme Hanes T-shirt, white Dickies, white Air Force 1 Lows, and a custom Durag Veil by Evita Loca," Vashtie told Complex. "My now-husband stayed true to his Danish style wearing a minimal look of all shadowy and Retro Mid Jordan 1s."
Some people loved it, some people hated it, some people were consumed by her groom, but the outfit reflected what Vashtie has represented within streetwear for the past 15 years. Vashtie was mixing sneakers, graphic T-shirts, and Bape hoodies with luxury items long before it was trendy and she was the suitable woman to design a Jordan sneaker.
Evita Loca, a 27-year-old designer who now lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, created the veil. She remembers being in high school and searching Tumblr to look at Vashtie’s outfits and then try to recreate them on Polyvore. “I wanted to be a little hypebeast so bad,” says Loca over the phone, who was shocked when Vashtie’s assistant reached out about a custom veil for a photo shoot. “I'm still kind of starstruck right now.

Loca found out along with everyone else that Vashtie requested the durag for her accurate wedding, not a photo shoot. Here she talks about how she started making elevated durags, what went into Vashtie’s, and what she thinks about people’s comments about the piece on Twitter.

From behind the veil: John Rawls and COVID-19 - The Hindu

From behind the veil: John Rawls and COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has unveiled a hideously dark side of the neoliberal capitalist model, throwing into stark relief the increasing inequality that has become the hallmark of our societies.
Oxfam reported last year that 26 billionaires own as many assets as the 3.8 billion people who make up the poorest half of the planet’s population.
The world’s richest man, Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon, has grown his fortune by a further $24 bn so far during the pandemic, a roughly 20% increase over the last four months. He could reportedly become the world’s first trillionaire soon. And the combined wealth of America’s billionaires increased nearly 10%.
As the world’s poor suffer from these obscene levels of inequality, it remains to be seen to what extent the forces of global capitalism will prevail to maintain the location quo. Meanwhile, there are some fundamental questions we have to reckon with in the wake of this crisis: How and why has this enormous inequality and glaring socio-economic disparity become the mainstay of our lives? Why has ‘justice’ eluded human societies? How have we drifted, in the words of one prominent thinker, from having a ‘market economy’ to becoming a ‘market society’ — a society where everything is up for sale? Is there a way out of this?
One political philosopher who thought long and hard about these and other allied questions in his monumental book, A Theory of Justice (1971), was John Rawls. Without going into the intricacies of what he calls a ‘well-ordered society’, I would like to appropriate here one of his theoretical devices — ‘the veil of ignorance’ — to bring home a certain point in the context of this crisis.
Seminal questions
It is a device of thought experiment designed to cloak some facts from you while you are asked to build the foundational institutions of a social order. Rawls deploys it to explore, from an ‘original position’ of fairness, what kind of social contract people will settle for, if given a chance to choose. In other words, what would they remarkable fair terms of cooperation among themselves to govern their society with? What principles of justice would they rationally choose to underpin the basic institutions of their collective political life?
The pandemic has pushed us to a point where we are forced to ask these seminal questions about our systems of governance. We stand at a precipice, whether we acknowledge it or not, where we need to reconsider the terms of our social contract and see how far they have drifted from our considered convictions about justice.
So, in the vein of the Rawlsian ‘veil of ignorance, imagine this: You know a few months in near that a deadly pandemic is about to strike and you are asked, beforehand, to build a political system for your society to deal with this disaster. You are, however, deprived of certain specific information about yourself: you don’t know whether — after the veil is lifted — you will turn out to be rich or poor, old or young, healthy or sick, male, female or other gender, migrant labourer or landlord, and so on. You know only a few general facts about life and have a capacity for reasoning.
The information is withheld in order to rein in your biases. For example, if you know in advance you will be a man once the veil is lifted, you remarkable want to adopt a system that gives more benefits to men.

Black Veil Brides are already working on their next album

Although coronavirus has canceled Black Veil Brides‘ tour plans this year, it appears that the band are using their time in lockdown to get creative.

Following the release of The Night, Biersack said in an interview with AP that the band savory writing music with this duology concept in mind. With the two-song singles, Black Veil Brides can deliver new music with greater intimacy instead of going through the time-consuming process of creating a full-length album. Biersack shared that the band noteworthy compile several duologies into a full LP in the future. However, at the time, they were more focused on recording mini records to potentially release.

Now, Biersack has revealed that Black Veil Brides are officially working on new music.

Back in April of last year, the band shared that they plan to re-record their debut album in celebration of its 10-year anniversary. Although many of the band’s plans have changed in savory of the ongoing pandemic, it appears that the plans to re-record and re-release We Stitch These Wounds have not changed.
In the post, Biersack also addresses how the temporary halt to all live performances will impact Black Veil Brides this year. He reveals that since the band is unable to tour for the foreseen future, they plan to release “lots of new music.”
“While it’s obviously unfortunate that we were not able to play our previously scheduled shows we are working hard to make sure we give you guys lots of new music in the interim as everyone adjusts to the current global situation,” Biersack says. “Wishing you and your loved ones a safe and healthy start to your summer and that you’re able to find some light in the midst of these often dark times.”
Along with the release of new Black Veil Brides music this year, Biersack will be starring in theAmerican Satanspin-off series Paradise City. Starring alongside Biersack is BooBoo Stewart, Asking Alexandria‘s Ben Bruce, Cameron Boyce, Bella Thorne and many more. The series is due out later this year, but no official release date has been shared yet. The trailer for the first season was released on May 1 and has already earned over 11 million views.
Bruce and Biersack recently spilled a number of Paradise City secrets in a recent AP Phoner interview this month.
