Newfoundland Weddings in 2021

We are close to entering another Wedding Season here in Newfoundland and with COVID restrictions still in place, many brides and grooms are searching for information about their wedding events. There are still COVID-19 restrictions in place for weddings here in Newfoundland and Labrador. These restrictions limit what a bride & groom can and cannot do during their special day.

Dancing is still not permitted for Weddings here in Newfoundland and Labrador. The exception to this is ceremonial dances (i.e. Bride & Groom First Dance) are permitted. Venues are still at limited capacity to ensure that you contact your venue with respect to how many guests are permitted to attend. Places of worship also have restrictions in place.

One of the questions that we are being asked about here at TheDJS.ca is “Will you ignore COVID guidelines and still play music for our party?”  Our answer is No.

While this might be disappointing for brides and grooms here in Newfoundland who have planned their wedding and booked our company as your wedding DJ, we hope that you understand that we are liable if an outbreak occurs as a result of our activity. Our insurance does not cover our operations in the event that we violate the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador’s COVID regulations. Your safety and the safety of your guests are our primary concern. The regulations have been established to protect everyone and the potential consequences of violating those regulations could endanger lives.

We will provide services for your ceremony, dinner music and ceremonial dances but unless COVID-19 regulations allow for dancing and partying, we hope you understand our decision.

If you have booked with our company for the 2021 wedding season here in Western Newfoundland, please reach out to us to discuss your options.
