Wedding Etiquette Tips 3


Wedding engagement speech and venue
What about engagement speeches? Fret not, usually there are only two. The first will be the bride's father to officially announce the wedding engagement and wish them both good health and prosperity. The future son-in-law will agree to it and together with his bride-to-be, they will wish their parents good health. The speeches need not be solemn, you may toast to other good news too, if you want.

Right after the engagement party speeches, the couples will lead by either going to the dance floor to start the first dance or go to a night club to celebrate further. They have to make the first initiative. After that the parents may stay behind to catch up with their families or leave the young crowd to themselves.

The engagement party is usually an informal event unless you want to make it a glamorous one. Invitation cards are unusual, a phone call to notify your friends and family is adequate.

Please do not plan it like it is your wedding day, place-cards are not necessary, even sitting arrangements for your guests are considered too much.

The host should be smart enough to show the guests their seats on that day. So some planning is needed, you may discuss it with your family that your relatives should be guided by your father or brother and your friends yourself.

If the couple are from two sides of the country, it will be almost impossible to fly their friends to a designated venue. The engagement party will usually be held at the bride's house, so it will be impractical to fly all groom's relatives and friends to the wedding engagement party. So the only alternative is to have the engagement party at the bride's house, then have a smaller party at the groom's house.
