Forchheim – Schnapszahl dates are popular for weddings. Is there a big rush for the 2.2. and 22.2.22 in the district of Forchheim? Has Corona left its mark on the planning of wedding ceremonies? We have inquired in Forchheim, Ebermannstadt, Eggolsheim, Gobweinstein and Neunkirchen.

The demand for the 2.2. and 22.2.22 in the district of Forchheim is quite different. While one registry office is completely booked, other communities have not experienced a rush at all so far.

In Gobweinstein in Franconian Switzerland there are no weddings on the special February dates. "There was an inquiry in the registry office, which was withdrawn then however again", reports Katrin Krasser from the registry office. In the current Corona situation, she says, it is difficult if you do not have large could celebrate.

"But we had not necessarily expected a rush either. In the summer simply much rather one marries – and in the meantime also again just as much as before Corona ", she says. Only 2020 was a dip, she says, as some weddings had to be canceled in the first pandemic year.

In Eggolsheim there were likewise no inquiries for the liquor number dates. The registry office also did not expect a rush. Reason: The current pandemic situation and the associated difficult planning of wedding ceremonies, it is said on request.

Completely booked out

In Forchheim the registry office is open on the coveted schnapps date 22.2.22 completely booked with five marriages. For the 2.2.22 were originally planned three marriages. Of it in the meantime a wedding had to be canceled and/or shifted because of Corona , communicates a city spokeswoman on inquiry.

In 2019, there were 148 marriages at the registry office in Forchheim, in 2021 there were 141. The number of registrations was slightly higher – for marriages you have to register at the respective place of residence – in 2019 there were 193 registrations, in 2021 there were 176 registrations.

The weddings turn out differently in Corona times: Corona-conditioned currently two additional persons may be present in the wedding room of the city of Forchheim, so the bride and groom plus two guests. In the emperor hall of the emperor palace however ten guests may be present according to the city. Five people of the city of Forchheim are allowed to perform weddings.

2021 there was an innovation: Saturday appointments are now also possible. Up to five wedding ceremonies a day are performed. "The offer was well received: Of 25 possible wedding ceremonies, 16 were booked," the city announced at the time. Accordingly, weddings will also be performed on some Saturdays this year, namely on 19. March, 9. April, 7. May, 18. June, 23. July, 17. September and 8. October.

Ebermannstadt on the other hand, has no inquiries for the 2.2. and 22.2. can book. "Wedding ceremonies in February are rather rare, most take place from May to September", reports registrar Gerti Lang. Five marriage registrars exist.

But there was a special wedding ceremony on the 30th.12. – a lightning wedding: "One couple absolutely wanted to be married before the end of 2021. You are on this day at 11.45 o’clock with the necessary papers at the registry office appeared. These were checked and were ok. The couple could then be married immediately afterwards", reports the registrar.

How many relatives can be present at the wedding ceremony in the meeting room would depend on the number of households in accordance with the room size. "The bride and groom share these before the ceremony. It is then checked whether the distance between the individual households can be maintained. However, it is difficult for the married couples to plan, since it can be possible that the number of guests must be reduced at short notice due to changes in the infection control ordinance", explains the registrar.

Caution when postponing weddings: "There are double costs"

Some marriages were already canceled, because the planning of the celebration is difficult, if one does not know, how many guests may come – not only in the registry office, but also at the celebration in a restaurant. "The joy of the upcoming wedding is often very clouded by this, as the couples do not know whether the celebration can take place or not", says Gerti Lang.

If the civil marriage is postponed, it should also be noted that the registration is only valid for six months, after which the papers must be checked again. "There are double costs. All in all, the pandemic has made it very difficult to plan marriages."

In Neunkirchen is "only one wedding ceremony registered. "With a little more we had perhaps already counted", says Tanja Hauenstein from the registry and residents’ registration office. Overall, however, there were not significantly fewer weddings due to the Corona pandemic. The majority of wedding ceremonies take place during the warmer months of the year: "It’s spread out over the whole summer."
