My venue is located in Wisconsin, we have a mask mandate here. It's followed semi-decently. There are flaws no matter how anyone chooses to look at it. My venue is a hotel and ballroom. In the hotel in the common spaces i.e. the hallways, the bar area (when getting a drink), the lobby etc folks are required to wear a mask. In the ballroom the only time the mask mandate is enforced is when you are up at the bar and the buffet line/ grabbing a cupcake in individually wrapped containers. it will not be enforced when sitting at a table, eating, drinking or dancing. To me that makes sense and seems reasonable; maybe enforce it a bit while dancing but not a big deal IMO. My FSIL called the hotel yesterday and found this information out, she is pissed. She says someone needs to enforce the mask mandate more at the venue. She even yelled at the person working, my coordinator told me this that works there. I feel awful, no one should be yelled at for this. Then she came back and said that her daughter, one of our flower girls doesn't feel safe coming to the wedding because of COVID. She is 8 years old...idk what to do.
Honestly to me after all the crap we have gone through with my FSIL; this just feels like a way to not attend. Which is fine we don't care anymore if they attend or not. I would rather they just be upfront about it.
