It’s a tricky time to be getting hitched.
According to Level 3 restrictions, currently in place until October 27th, a Covid-compliant wedding can have no more than 25 people at the ceremony and reception. If the situation goes downhill even further, Level 4 and Level 5 allow only six guests to attend.
Many couples who are planning on pressing ahead and tying the knot anyway have settled on a small family party for the big day, followed by a proper bash later on when The Virus isn’t stealing all the limelight.
Now a local mobile bar is getting in on the act, offering the perfect alternative to a sit-down dinner for your nearest and dearest, without the worry that it will all be cancelled at the last minute.
The Nom Nom Café has just launched a set of custom packages with reduced rates for gatherings of up to 25 people.
“We are reaching out to brides/grooms/event planners who have had to face reducing their guest lists once again.” owner Hazel O’Donovan told Yay Cork.
“We don’t want people to lose hope and feel completely disheartened about their special day that they have been planning for months, even years… it’s a very stressful time for couples and we still want them to really enjoy and make the most of their day.”
You can book a pop-up cocktail or coffee bar to pull up in your choice of location for a half-day (2.5 hours) from €249. If you choose the cocktail bar option, you supply the alcohol and the Nom Nom Café will shake it up into a mojito or a fruity gin smash.
The coffee bar option will serve up freshly brewed barista drinks and hot chocolates alongside delicious shortbread fingers. They’ll even supply the music and a gazebo in case of showers.
Limited dates are available for October, November and December so email [email protected] for more information or to reserve your date.
Sip, sip, hooray!
