Wedding Etiquette Tips 35


Civil wedding recession - After the wedding vows
We will continue from last chapter on civil wedding vows. Right after the exchange of vows, the husband may kiss the Bride. Everyone in the room will join in hands and gave the newly weds a big round of applause to celebrate their new beginning together.

The bride and bridegroom should be starting to walk down the aisle and kick off the civil wedding recession. The chief bridesmaid and the bridesmaids again form up their positions and follow them to the door.

The wedding banquet will start right away with some fanfare which has been planned by the hotel or the wedding planner. During this time, the bride will return to her room and change into a formal evening gown.

Some wedding planner may feel that since the Bride and Groom are the host of the evening, the wedding banquet will only start when they have changed and walk through the entrance again.

During the time waiting for the bride to change which takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes, the wedding planner may plan a video presentation of the wedding couple for the guests to enjoy.

Once the Bride is ready for the Groom to lead her back into the ballroom, the Best man will announce the entrance of the newly weds. When the bride and groom take their seats, the wedding planner will give the banquet manager the cue to start the wedding banquet. And because the wedding ceremony and reception or banquet are put together, the punctuality of the guests arrival is very important, you may want the guests to arrive early to avoid starving any of them as the wedding ceremony can take quite a while.
