Wedding season is beginning, and that’s a problem according to Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser. The latest pandemic order issued by the Mayor limits capacity for indoor and outdoor weddings to 25% and bans dancing at weddings. The Mayor’s office says it put the dancing ban in place as “an extra layer of safety,” saying that when standing and dancing, people are more likely to get close and touch each other.
Where’s Kevin Bacon when you need him? This order is obviously causing a lot of problems. According to Stephanie Sadowski, a D.C. wedding planner and owner of SRS Events, says the couples she’s working with are turning to nearby Virginia and Maryland to hold their weddings because of the new directive, many with just one or two weeks’ notice.
That’s a big restriction to put into place just before someone’s wedding. D.C. isn’t alone in a ban on dancing, though; there are similar bans in both Illinois and Michigan. New York and New Jersey had tough restrictions on dancing, but both have relaxed those orders recently. It’s unclear how long the dancing ban will be in place in D.C.
