Planning a wedding for 450??

A colleague of mine, who is getting married in March, just informed me yesterday that the guest list is comprised of 450 people.  I was rather surprised since the date is only 5 months away.  I told him that a gathering of 450 people is illegal right now and it could still be illegal come March.  He didn't seemed concerned at all.

 

I just find it silly to be planning a huge event in the middle of a pandemic.  I don't get it.  What are your thoughts?

Where are they planning on having this wedding?   Someone's home?  

 

Pandemic or not, a wedding for 450 people is just too much, IMO

@Bri369  - Church wedding and some rented placed for the reception.

@San Antonio Gal 

 

Maybe they are planning to hold the wedding in Florida... We are 100% open now. They can have as many people squeezed together as they want here. Of course, people will still get COVID-19 and possibly die but the powers that be say it is safe so it must be. Yeahright.

I can't imagine planning a wedding for 450 even in the best of times.  I am an old fuddy duddy and a scrooge.  It is all a big waste of money JMHO.  

 

Sometimes it is all about the wedding fantasy instead of the marriage union.  Again, JMHO.

 

Hey, all the best to your friend.  It seems a bit foolish though......just saying......

@San Antonio Gal  I don't know how they're going to manage that.  It's illegal.

I don't even know 450 people.

Probably just wants lots of gifts and doesn't expect most people to attend. Or he just doesn't care if his guests get sick as long as he can have a good time. Either way it reflects very poorly on him.
