Wedding Processions

It may not be a thought that crosses your mind right off the bat but processional order is something you should think about. Especially if you’re wedding isn’t from the 1950’s. Times have changed and with it so has the makeup of families and those who are getting married. The Groom’s best man could very well be a female and vice versa. Does that change the order of procession? Is the bride’s father deceased, does she walk down the aisle alone or can someone go with her?

These are just some of the types of questions that can come up during the final days before your wedding. So if you don’t want to get blindsided by these, visit Martha Stewart. 

Engagement Party Etiquette.

Today, those rules don’t really apply, as any friend of the couple can offer to host the event, especially if the couple’s family lives far away. Just make sure you’re not stepping on any toes by playing host.

As for tips on a more formal etiquette, Martha Stewart is  a good place look.
