Every year, millions of couples celebrate their love by getting married and millions of their family and friends celebrate with them. In the U.S. alone, Americans spend $100 billion on weddings annually. Think invitations, wedding dresses, rings, venues, flowers, gift registries, honeymoons and more all on saying “I do.” But at a time when a child is married somewhere in the world every three seconds, who’s invested in making sure that girls can say, “I don’t” or “not yet”? Let’s work together to create a world in which every girl can decide if, when and whom to marry.
In a time where it still feels like things are changing weekly (if not even daily) it's important to keep on top of the constant changing restrictions and laws.⠀
We are joining Heidi Hughett, Alicia Falango, and Kate Whelan, the founders of the California Events Coalition. Together they walked us through how to determine the lawfulness of an event, how it effects you and your client, and most importantly, your business.
The California Events Coalition was created to provide advocacy, support and resources for our community. We aim to communicate the catastrophic effects of COVID-19 on the business of live events during the statewide conversation to ensure we’re included in policies and relief aid packages moving forward.
