With this year being a challenging time for couples around the world, planning the big day has been an overwhelming task due to the novel coronavirus. While wedding season should be in full-swing by now, soon-to-be-married couples have questioned whether it’s possible to go ahead with their dream wedding this year.

For those planning their upcoming nuptials in Ajman, there’s some good news. Couples who wish to tie the knot in the emirate with a larger public gathering can finally do so, after a months-long ban on social gatherings to curb the spread of the pandemic as per an announcement made by the emirate’s Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Team on Sunday.

In a statement, Maj Gen Sheikh Sultan Al Nuaimi, the Commander-in-Chief of Ajman Police and Head of the Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Team said, “The ban was lifted to allow people to celebrate joyous events together.”

This comes after Dubai announced it would allow wedding receptions and social events to resume a couple of weeks ago.

In a statement issued by Dubai Media Office on October 22, 2020, it was stated by the emirate’s Committee for Crisis and Disaster Management that guests must avoid shaking hands, kissing or hugging while maintaining a distance of at least 1.5 metres with a maximum capacity of 200 guests in large halls.

In addition, guests should have their face masks on at all times with the exception of wearing them while being seated at a table of no more than five people.

So if your big day is approaching soon, you can now start planning.
