Currently, weddings can only take place with up to six people, who are only present in exceptional cases.
As of March 29, marriages are no longer restricted to exceptional circumstances, but the limit of six people remains in place.
However, according to the roadmap, ceremonies and receptions for up to 15 people can take place from April 12th in premises that are allowed to be open at that time.
From May 17th, events for up to 30 people can take place. On June 21, social distancing is expected to be relaxed with no limit on numbers.
