The rules for weddings in Scotland are set to be relaxed this month - but dancing is strictly off limits.

The Scottish Sun reports that live music will return at weddings from May 17, the date Scotland is expected to move to Level 2, however, guests will not be able to show off their best moves until the pandemic is over. 

This week the Scottish Government updated its tourism and hospitality sector guidance.

By June 7 all of Scotland is scheduled to be moved down to Level 1 before all restrictions are lifted and guests are able to take to the dance floor again by the end of the same month. 

A statement reads: We expect to permit live music, with appropriate mitigations, from level 2.

"We do not expect to permit dancing earlier than level 0."

Currently, live music is not permitted with only low-level background music as an exception. 

The guidance for level 3 states that "singing and dancing must not take place.  

"The only exception to this is the couple's 'first dance' and a dance between parents where they live in the same household."

"Not allowing singing and dancing generally is consistent with the measures being applied to hospitality as a whole."

In current level 3 restrictions, weddings are able to take place with up to 50 guests
