Q: How many guests can we bring for Rotunda Wedding?
A: City Hall allows to bring no more than six guests. City Hall started to enforce this number in May 2019. Groups that include more then 6 guests may not get a Rotunda and may be directed to a Ceremony room located near the County Clerk Office. We try to avoid this situation and have a number of advices for larger groups on how to get married in the Rotunda.
