As of May 19, 2021 

Please be excited that we are finally going forward and keep in mind these rules can be changing and relaxing even more at any time 

Q: What is the Guest list now allowed ? 

75% of legal occupancy up to 150 guests - Our legal occupancy is 225.

For The Appel Inn we are allowed 150  guests.  ( Generally rule of Thumb - Mail invitations 8-12 weeks before the wedding and we recommend a RSVP date 3 weeks before your wedding.  This allows you a week of telephone tag for those that did not respond and 2 weeks of knowing exactly who is attending.  Do not be surprised if we see just a slightly higher number of guests not feeling comfortable traveling right now.  

Q- What is the largest table size -

No Longer restrictions 

Q- Is Dancing Allowed ? 

They are now allowing Dancing- yes - again NYS is following CDC rules - if you are vaccinated -masks and social distancing is not required - If you are NOT VACCINATED -  please wear a mask indoors and maintain social distancing - This is on the Honor System  

Q- Are Masked still required ?

Again CDC and NYS - Unvaccinated guests are asked to wear masks and maintain social distancing 

Q- ***Tracing list and Guest Requirements***
