What Are Formalities?

Formalities are procedures that are traditionally carried out at a wedding

These normally consist of hymeneals, nuptials, the wedding ceremony, speeches, the first dance, and the cutting of the cake.

Key Points

  • When it comes to speeches the best man normally starts the toast and gives his speech. He is then followed by the maid of honor.
  • The groom normally responds to the best man and then the parents as well as other guests can also say a speech.
  • The speeches are usually followed by the first dance and then the cutting of the cake and the throwing of the bouquet.
