New Coronavirus Wedding Rules Mean You Can Actually Only Invite 13 People

In the News

It should be the ­happiest day of your life – but the pandemic is turning ­wedding dreams into messy nightmares.

The Government ­introduced tougher restrictions this week and from tomorrow, only 15 guests will be allowed at a wedding, which has been cut from 30.

And there is more bad news for the bride and groom too. Here’s what you need to know:

The sting in the tail.

The Government has said you can have only 15 people at the ­ceremony and ­reception. This has been ­interpreted as you are allowed to invite 15 people.

As a consequence, those who already have a wedding booked under the old restrictions have been trying to chop their list down to 15 loved ones.

But the law is you can have a maximum of 15 ­people at the ­ceremony and reception – and this includes the bride and groom plus any third party suppliers. That would mean anyone you hire in, such as a DJ who does not work for the venue.

So the reality is the actual guest list for weddings will be far smaller than 15.

It is what it is - I guess people who want a bigger event can just wait - it will be felt far more harshly for funerals which don't have that option.

What I find difficult to grasp is why you can have 30 at a funeral but only 15 at a wedding!

lilyflower It could be that funerals can be held outdoors, but in England and Wales weddings must be indoors, although I notice in Wales the number for weddings is still at "up to" thirty.

davidstockport Ok, have the 'official wedding bit' indoors with minimal persons and the rest wait in the garden and look through the window. What happens at a cremation, that's all indoors. And there's as much hugging and hand shaking goes on at a funeral as at a wedding.

When I got married all I cared about was that we ended up as Mr and Mrs. I would be fine with that number, I could have immediate family and vendors and still have an invite left over. If it was me I would do the legal part just now and do the big wedding and reception later.

Seems a bit bizarre really when you can go and sit in a pub with 100 other people all day if you want, I haven’t been in a pub since COVID as there is no social distancing whatsoever where I live. It’s a free for all. Absolute disgrace
