With Ireland slowly opening up from its COVID-19 lockdown, couples around the country were given some good news last week with weddings once again a possibility this summer. Leo Varadkar announced last Friday that weddings can take place indoors with up to 50 people from June 29th and up to 100 people from July 20th.
You can download the full guidance for weddings from Failte Ireland (PDF) to see how the new rules might affect your Mrs-to-be’s wedding day plans. Check page 29 for wedding details.
From June 29th until July 19th, weddings in Ireland will be allowed to go ahead with up to 50 guests indoors and up to 200 guests outdoors.
From July 20th, weddings will be allowed to take place with up to 100 guests indoors and up to 500 guests outdoors.
On the day, the following social distancing measures may have to be in place for your wedding ceremony and reception:
Some wedding venues have suggested that the guest list number restrictions for the dates outlined above include everyone in your venue space, including you, the groom, your guests, your suppliers and the venue staff.
Just to be safe, you should probably have a chat with your wedding venue to see how they are implementing the rules and how this might affect your guest list size.
With many countries still under partial or full lockdowns, there is no clear guidance yet for destinations weddings in 2020. Your planning will have to depend on your destination and what local rules your suppliers there will have to follow.
We recommend you regularly check the Irish government’s advice on travelling during the Coronavirus pandemic to see how you might be affected.
