The Wedding Reception - Did you know?

In most Western countries, following a meal with copious quantities of food and alcohol (traditionally paid for by the bride's family and known as the wedding breakfast), speeches are made by members of the wedding party wishing the couple well in the future. Traditionally, the speaking parties include the bride's father and the groom. In the modern U.S., speeches are more often given by the best man (who usually slips in a few good-natured jokes at the couple's expense) and the maid or matron of honor.

After the speeches, the bride and groom begin their first dance, which used to be called the "bridal waltz"; in most contemporary weddings a recent romantic pop song is played and the bride and groom's dance is rarely an actual waltz. Different dance styles are now used, depending on the nature of this pop song

The wedding reception dance party may involve a certain sequence of special dances. For example, after the first dance, the groom may escourt his bride to her father for a special father/daughter dance

Following the various special dances, the guests are invited to join in the dancing. The party continues with toasts and various celebrations until the bride and groom leave in a car "decorated" by the couple's friends.
