Wedding Venue Owners Struggle With New Standards Nashik News

Sunil Chopda, president of the Nashik Wedding Halls and Lawns Association, said most of the wedding halls have been booked because there are still muhurats until the end of 2021. After that, the wedding season starts to go. January 18 and will continue until the end of May.
“Right now, the concern of many wedding venue owners is to call the parties who have reserved the venues / lawns and inform them of new guidelines issued by the government,” he added.
According to the new guidelines, the total number of participants at any time should not exceed 100 for confined spaces (such as banquet and wedding rooms, etc.) and 250 for open spaces, or 25% of the capacity of these spaces.
