Italian Wedding: the new rules on wedding receptions

Love does not go into lockdown, and although thousands of future brides and grooms this year were forced to postpone their big day, the desire to realize their dream has remained unchanged. Many couples have decided to choose functional and flexible solutions, able to assure the right quietness, without depriving the event of poetry.
Not surprisingly, the latest trend concerns weddings surrounded by greenery, where venues with large outdoor spaces and spacious indoor rooms are favoured, which can ensure social distancing and compliance with safety regulations. A wise choice that, if you rely on a structure with high professionalism and with the right requirements, such as the Antiche Scuderie Odescalchi, allows the future couple to live the preparations with the essential serenity and with that sense of joyful expectation that precedes the wedding day.



Marriages in numbers: the case of Italy

According to the latest report, published by Istat in November 2019, in Italy 195,778 marriages were celebrated in 2018 (2.3% more than the previous year). A growing trend that, as can be easily guessed, had a sharp stop in the first half of 2020.

The Uecoop, European Union of Cooperatives, has estimated that between March and June 2020 in our country have been postponed about 60 thousand marriages. A shocking data, which has affected about 80 thousand companies in the sector. Phase 3 of the emergency, fortunately, has opened up new prospects, allowing a gradual return to normality.

Wedding receptions: government guidelines

On 14 July last, in addition to the previous dispositions regarding the execution of civil and religious rites, the Government issued new guidelines with specific indications for the organization of wedding banquets.

During the receipt, the wedding venues are required:

  • to provide adequate information on the preventive measures to be observed;
  • to keep the list of participants in the event for a period of at least 14 days;
  • to reorganize the spaces, in order to assure an orderly access to the event, to avoid crowding and to guarantee the maintenance of the distance of 1 meter between the guests, except for cohabitants and relatives;
  • to privilege, where possible, the use of outdoor spaces (such as gardens and terraces);
  • to assure the adequate cleaning and sanitization of the indoor areas and any equipment used.

In this step, the possibility of organizing the banquet with the buffet mode has also been restored, through the provision by staff in charge and properly equipped.
