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.
