Restrictions on wedding guests may not be eased next month, the government has warned today.
Numbers at wedding receptions are currently restricted to 50 people and were expected increase to 100 next month. However, the easing of numbers were subject to Covid-19 restrictions.
An Tanaiste Leo Varadkar told couple today that they should plan for 50 guests, rather than the higher alternative.
“As has always been the case, we’ll often set an indicative date or a target date for the further easing of restrictions but we always say to people to operate on the basis that they won’t change,” Mr Varadkar told reporters today.
“Don’t assume that they will change. So, I’d say to anyone who’s planning a wedding in August, operate on the basis that it will be 50.”
