The further easing of coronavirus restrictions across regional Victoria continue to force couples getting ready to head down the aisle to pivot plans.
Acting premier James Merlino announced on Wednesday that weddings can have 50 attendees while religious ceremonies are capped at 300 and funerals can have 100 mourners.
"I have a wedding coming up and I think the new restrictions will change their plans unless further easing is announced before next Friday," she said.
"When new restrictions come in, I can suggest a couple of options for couples to get married in public spaces as that worked well before.
"I had a big wedding booked for the long weekend in Mitchelton but they were a Melbourne couple so we've had to reschedule.
"It's hard for couples with the two sets of rules because if they have Melbourne attendees those people have to abide by Melbourne rules."
Ms Begg said she understood the difference in restrictions between funerals and weddings because it can be near-impossible to reschedule a funeral but weddings could pivot.
"I think Covid has changed weddings," she said. "I think it's forced people to look at other options and it's put attention on why it's really important to get married.
"Last winter when we were down to five people in attendance, some couples still wanted to go ahead.
"I've started an elopement package with a local photographer and we've had lots of enquiries from people looking at getting married with under 25 people.
"I'm still getting enquiries for the summer wedding season and I can barely say yes because it's so busy but I'm encouraging couples to be flexible and look into options of Friday and Sunday ceremonies too."
