Melissa Barker, Editor of Your West Midlands Wedding magazine

Entertainment specialist, Mark Tolliss explains what you should take into consideration if your entertainment booking has been affected by COVID-19.

"Make sure you have complete clarity over the what-ifs," says Mark. "Due to the circumstances, your deposit or booking fee should be fully returnable. You'll need to discuss the availability of your wedding and the dates they have available, as so many events and weddings have been postponed to 2021 and 2022 those dates will be getting very full already. Finally, your deposit or booking fee that you paid for on the initial date should hold for the re-booked date.

"If you're booking completely new entertainment for your wedding, you need to find a supplier that reflects your personalities and brings out the fun side in you. Make sure you click with your entertainer before booking or paying any money. I always say to my clients that if they don't feel comfortable around someone, don't use them! That one person will give a different feel to your day, so it's not worth taking the risk.

"Make sure the entertainment you book will be flexible enough to offer what you want from your big day. Take their advice, but you need to be involved in the decisions as well, so you must find a balance."
