Formal and informal wedding

When determining the style of the wedding you are really deciding on how formal or informal you want it to be.

The formality is related to the location of the ceremony and reception and time of the day.

Let’s make a few examples.

Evening weddings and those held in place of worship tend to be more formal.

Afternoon weddings, at home celebrations or beach events are generally less formal.

It is also possible to combine different moments according to the taste of the couple and the circumstances. The style of the wedding, furthermore will impact and influence the small touches and how you personalize the space and the guests experience.

But what makes a wedding formal? The clothing for one thing, everyone at a formal wedding is decked out in their finest. The bride and the bridesmaids wear long gowns and sometimes even white gloves, the groom and his attendants may be in tuxes. Besides, every single detail such as the invitation, the font, the setting and the time of the day adhere to tradition and weddinquette rules.

Informal weddings may take place in a place of worship or in a home or garden or a beach. Here the bride and her attendants wear more simple floor-length or knee-length dresses. The groom and his boys might wear suits or sport jackets. The reception can take place in a restaurant or at home or in a garden with a caterer or a friend providing refreshments. A breakfast, brunch or lunch follows morning or early-afternoon wedding and informal buffet or simple hors d’oeuvres and wedding cake for an afternoon reception.
