Weddings: Latest Guidelines - Helpful Information

WEDDING CEREMONIES AND VENUES 

From the COVID 19 Info Hub: Can I still get married? Are wedding venues open? YES, so long as ceremonies and receptions comply with the limits on gatherings and other safety guidelines.

Below are the guidelines as of Friday, February 5th:
 

Outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions may be held while following appropriate gathering limits.

  • Outdoor wedding ceremonies do not have an attendance limit
  • Outdoor wedding receptions must comply with the limits on general outdoor gatherings, which limits events to 25 people and requires social distancing

Indoor wedding ceremonies and receptions may be held while following appropriate gathering limits.

  • Indoor wedding ceremonies must be limited to 150 people or 35% of a room's capacity - whichever number is lower

  • Indoor wedding receptions must comply with the limits on general indoor gatherings which are currently limited to 10 people. All attendees at indoor gatherings must wear face coverings and socially distance.


* Note: Indoor receptions held separately from wedding ceremonies are currently capped at 10 people, while outdoor receptions held separately from wedding ceremonies are limited to 25 people under the current limits on gatherings.

 

Unfortunately, dance floors at all venues are closed due to the high-risk of spreading COVID-19 in these spaces, where many individuals may be in close contact with one another.


In addition to complying with the gatherings limits outlined above, any establishments that serve food or alcohol, including banquet facilities and wedding venues, must comply with the health and safety protocols for indoor and outdoor dining.  The statewide requirement that all bars and restaurants end indoor service as of 10 p.m. has been lifted. However, municipalities or counties may continue to regulate the hours of operation of in-person restaurant service after 8 p.m.

Surrounding states have different guidelines. Visit forward.ny.gov for New York and visit Pennsylvania info at www.governor.pa.gov

To save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19, wear a mask, wash your hands, practice social distancing and stay home if you are sick. 

Individuals are currently allowed to tour restaurant and catering facilities for event-planning purposes, but must wear face coverings at all times.
