- A bride is questioning if she should allocated unvaccinated guests to one table
- Heidi, from Sydney, is getting married in March 2022 and is unsure what to do
- She appeared on Kyle and Jackie-O to ask for assistance
- The two radio hosts agreed the single table idea ‘won’t do anything’
A bride-to-be has admitted she’s considering seating all unvaccinated guests at one table at her wedding.
Appearing on Kyle and Jackie-O on KIIS 106.5, Heidi, from Sydney, said she’s getting married in March 2022 and a few of her family members are yet to be vaccinated.
Both Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson agreed assigning unvaccinated guests to a single table ‘won’t do anything’ as they are likely to mingle with other guests throughout the night.

‘I’m thinking do I have a special “anti-vax table” so all the other guests are a little bit more at ease with having people that aren’t vaccinated there or do I not worry about it?’ Heidi asked.
Kyle was quick to point out if you are fully vaccinated ‘you’re protected’ against those that aren’t.
‘The anti-vaccinated, they’ve chosen not to do it for whatever reason, that’s fine, it’s their own choice,’ he added.
Jackie said: ‘I don’t think separating them at a table is going to do anything, like everyone’s going to be dancing.’

The radio duo also deemed it to be ‘reasonable’ to ask all unvaccinated guests to have a Covid-19 test before the wedding.
‘It’s so standard these days, Heidi, and especially with the at-home [tests] it’s pretty easy to do,’ Jackie said.
The duo also mentioned the venue will likely ask to ensure all guests are fully vaccinated prior to the wedding.
