OF GUIDELINES PERTAINING TO WEDDINGS AND EVENTS.

BARS

Based on Vermont's guidelines for bars, restaurants, catering and food service, we do not believe typical bar service is possible at weddings. Beverages can be served to guests at the table by the waitstaff. It's best to check with your vendors for specific guidance.

bUFFETS

Use of shared food service (buffet style) and self-serve utensils, plates or napkins, are prohibited. However, a staffed banquet style buffet may occur if serving lines can accommodate physical distancing.

COCKTAIL HOUR

Guests must be seated while consuming food or beverage.

DANCE FLOOR

Dance floors are permitted in Vermont, however all social distancing guidelines are strongly encouraged and guests must wear masks while on the dance floor.

GUEST COUNT

Guest count must be capped at 50% of approved fire safety occupancy, or one person per 100 square feet of guest space. Indoor events cannot exceed a total of 75 people. Outdoor events cannot exceed a total of 150 people. Staff and vendors are not counted in the maximum number.
