Special Occasion Wedding Etiquette
Ask any fifteen year old girl any question about absolutely any aspect of wedding etiquette and planning and chances are she will have an answer. And chances are just as good that her answer will be correct. Thanks to weddings becoming even bigger and grander affairs with a larger audience and wedding magazines staring us down at every supermarket check stand, most of us have been exposed to several weddings in our lifetime already (and the ones we see on TV and in the movies count, too). They all follow the same basic pattern and most have the same expectations.
But, what do you do when your daughter is marrying a military man? How is that wedding different from a traditional wedding? And how are weddings conducted overseas? Are they the same as in the United States? As gay marriage becomes legal across the country, what is the etiquette when it comes to throwing or attending one? Weddings are always special occasions, but, with this kind of criteria, these weddings become even bigger special occasions of their own, each with different sets of etiquette rules to follow (and, therefore, their own category on our site).
Whether you are throwing or attending a wedding that is not quite the norm for you, or even if you are just curious, these articles will explain what the differences are between a traditional wedding and the special occasion wedding and what will be expected of you. Do not worry, though – they are all still fun and filled with love!
