Are wedding venues open?


Outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions may be held so long as they comply with the limits on outdoor gatherings, which limits events to 500 people at one time, and social distancing must be practiced.

Unfortunately, dance floors at venues are closed due to the high-risk of spreading COVID-19 in these spaces, where many individuals may be in close contact with one another.

Indoor wedding ceremonies may be held so long as they comply with the limits on indoor gatherings, which limits events to 100 people or 25 percent of a room’s capacity, and all attendees are required to wear face coverings and stay six feet apart.

However, to save lives and prevent the further spread of COVID-19, indoor wedding receptions may not be held at this time, and indoor wedding venues, indoor catering halls, and indoor banquet halls remain closed in New Jersey along with all indoor dining.
