Newlyweds in England can share their big day with up to 30 friends and family, but some traditional activities like dancing are discouraged.

On May 17, the rules changed again, easing the restrictions even further.

The government website states, “Up to 30 people can attend weddings, receptions, and wake and funerals.”

If you dream of an outdoor wedding, do it. ”
