A Conversation for Wedding Etiquette

Long Island Wedding

Post 1

Shea the Sarcastic

Since getting married last year, I've found out that the "traditional" wedding I'm used to from living on Long Island is quite different from those in other parts of the U.S.

Receptions seem to be more formal, catered affairs here, and there are many local "wedding factories" that exist solely to put on big, lavish affairs.

My husband's mid-western family was rather taken aback by the whole thing, while enjoying it immensely! Even if they couldn't bring their own covered dish. They also commented on the fact that it was a short reception ... "only" 6 hours versus their typical going on all night affairs!

As far as wedding etiquette, I'll have to fill it in later, when I have more time! smiley - run
