People are considering getting married in a bootcamp under new isolation laws

Sometimes you have to work with what you have!

While most weddings have been cancelled for the forseeable future, some are adament to keep their nuptials afloat under the Coronavirus restrictions. 

So under a new law, Scott Morrison has implemented a social distancing rule for weddings which allows only for five people present. 

And to break that down, five people only includes the two getting married, the celebrant and two guests which will be a hard conversation to have with both sides of parents. 

However, in a bid to keep small businesses afloat, the Prime Minister has at the same time allowed bootcamp groups to reach 10 people. 

“What we are talking about is people, up to 10, for training, that is a business, that is someone’s livelihood and you are saying that I should turn their livelihood off,” he said in a recent press conference. “I’m not going to do that lightly."

So, for those looking for an alternative, some have been considering holding a wedding bootcamp to extend their guest list.

But you guessed it, the dress code will probably have to be changed from Black Tie to... Active Wear?

Since announcing the news, it has sparked a viral response on social media. 



"So you can only have five people at your wedding but ten at your boot camp? Looks like we all getting married in yoga pants," another wrote on Twitter.

Another has shared their thoughts on the logistics when they wrote, "If I marry my (non-existent) personal trainer in an outdoor boot camp themed ceremony, how many people can I have at my wedding? Does the groom count as a guest? Asking for a friend."

While we don't have any confirmed cases of bootcamp weddings going ahead as yet, we're hoping to see a few jump up! Pardon the pun.
