I use the word "formal wedding" for a wedding followed by a reception, with dances, toasts, food, etc. I'm not from the USA, nor my native language is English, but I think in USA it's pretty common to not have a huge party after the ceremony. Where I live, for example, almost all weddings are "formal", with very elaborate and long receptions afterwords. Last wedding I attended was a 14 hours long thing, from the ceremony to the last dance at the party. Same here. Last wedding I attended was a weekend thing, as it was one of my cousins wedding and it is family tradition from my father side of the family as the wedding happen on Saturday and on Sunday the groom and bride have lunch on their place with all guests. Not many chances of elopments, lol! Family enjoys the party after! Edited November 22, 2017 by spidergirl Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
