These limits include the couple, but exclude the Licensed Solemnizer, the interpreter (if required), and vendors who must be kept to the minimum. You will need to comply with all other SMMs for your solemnization.
 
Weddings receptions are allowed with the following limits:
  • For wedding receptions at external venues: max of 250 attendees with VDS requirement, or the safe capacity of the venue, whichever is lower, with group size of up to 5 attendees.
  • No wedding receptions in the ROM/M Building or in a place of residence or in a place of worship will be allowed.
Children aged 12 years and below (i.e. born in and after 2009), who are currently not eligible for vaccinations under the National Vaccination Programme, must not make up more than 20% of the overall attendees. This applies to marriage solemnizations with more than 50 attendees or wedding receptions (regardless of the number of attendees). These children seated within the groups of 5 attendees must be from the same household.
 
For solemnizations held outside of the ROM/M Building, please submit your attendee list to your Licensed Solemnizer at least one day before your solemnization. The attendee list must also be made available on site for both wedding solemnization and receptions:
The bride and groom must use either face masks or face shields throughout the solemnization ceremony. They may remove their masks or face shields for key moments of the solemnization, which includes the exchanging of vows and rings, kiss between the couple, and during march-ins/outs. However, the bride and groom must maintain a 2 metres distance from the rest of the attendees of the solemnization whenever masks or face shields have been removed. All other attendees must wear their masks throughout the solemnization. Masks may be removed momentarily for photo-taking and must be worn immediately after photos are taken.
 
Up to 10 individuals are allowed to unmask when engaged in public speaking for solemnizations in external venues (i.e. in venues excluding place of residence and the ROM/M building), as well as for wedding receptions, while maintaining a distance of at least 2 meters from the audience. The unmasked individuals must maintain a distance of at least 1 meter from each other unless the individuals are members of the wedding party.
 
The following special provisions for weddings will take effect from 22 November 2021, subject to safe distancing measures (i.e. maintain a safe distance of 2 meters from the audience):
