Covid restrictions return for Indian Wedding Guests

Covid restrictions for Indian Wedding Guests in 2022

As Omicron bites globally, and as the number of active Covid cases rise, many Indian states are in 2022, bringing in restrictions on the number of guests who can attend a wedding down to just 20 guests (depending on the state).

This is leaving a lot of unhappy brides and groom to be, unsure of what to do next. The big question on everyone’s mind, is whether they should abandon their dream of a big fat Indian wedding or hunker down, and hope things improve on the Covid front soon?

This confusion and concern has led to a number of wedding industry experts to call on the Delhi government to increase the minimum number of guests allowed at an Indian wedding from a paltry 20.

In return for increasing the minimum number of guests they are suggested that all guests and staff are double jabbed and double PCR tested before the big day.
