The continual changes in COVID-19 regulations have been hitting the wrong notes for those in the wedding business.
Yet despite taking a huge personal and financial toll on wedding singers and newly-wed hopefuls, there's no denying the importance of safety first.
Bride-to-be Meriah Cronin has already postponed her May wedding once, and is holding out to see what happens before pulling the trigger on canning the second date in September.
"Anyone who has planned a wedding knows how much work and effort is involved, and to reschedule when we were so close it made it that much harder," she explained.
But while crowd numbers are dependent on how many people a venue can fit maintaining the four-square-meter rule, there is now no singing, no dancing, no mingling.
Both coming from large, close families it is important to have them there. Another other factor also adds to their determination to wait and see.

"We picked our vendors for a reason, and we would love to continue supporting local and will do everything we can to do that," she stated.
Coupled with the fact that Michael hates summer, and her beautiful gown is made for the winter.
"At the end of the day you can't plan it. Everything is changing ever so rapidly, but we want everyone to be happy, safe, and healthy."
Holly and Aaron Bolton, are wedding singers from Tamworth making up the Entwined Duo. Mrs Botlon thanks their lucky stars music isn't their only gig.
All the weddings they had booked after the start of the pandemic have been postponed, and all the ceremonies they would normally have during the busy wedding season are just not there.
"There is zero interest, zero inquiries. Everyone is scared to book because everything is changing daily," she explained.

She feels for those with planned nuptials still going ahead, which will lack some of the most memorable moments weddings provide.
"Music is such a big component - the song you walk down the aisle to, the first dance song; it's the letting your hair down at the end of the day when the bride and groom relish their hard work in creating the day.
"It's quite sad."
But their hearts go out to others who are more fully in the music business.
"It's just musicians themselves, but the entertainment industry as a whole ... they need support because they can't get back to their day to day.
"I would hate to think of the head space of someone with no income, no support, no JobKeeper - there needs to be a support network for this industry to revive it."
