Published March 17th 2021 – Wedding ceremonies and receptions for up to 50 people (with no alcohol) will be allowed in Scotland from April 26th, if the lifting of Covid restrictions goes as planned.
Hope was the key message in yesterday’s Scottish Government announcement. The first minister stressed the importance of sticking to the rules to keep suppressing the virus, but also said that this is the most hopeful she’s felt in some time.
We know you have questions. And we hope to see updated guidance coming out in the next week or two.
We’ll keep you posted as and when we know more.
But what we know so far is that, if all goes as hoped:
⚡️ Wedding ceremonies and receptions for up to 50 people (with no alcohol) will be allowed from April 26th
⚡️ If weddings progress in line with hospitality, alcohol may be allowed from May 17th
⚡️ The hope is that Scotland will be in level 1 by early June and level 0 by late June, and wedding numbers may rise accordingly.
Hope is here.
