But wouldn’t you have liked to be him, just for that moment? (I cherish the image, unsafe and unwarranted though it may be, of Slater grabbing a beer, punching the button, and sliding down the safety chute.) You know the moment.

It’s the moment when the jerk sitting next to you won’t turn off the his (or her) cell phone, even though the flight attendant has said, repeatedly, “Please turn off all cell phones.” It’s the moment when, although the flight attendants have said, “Please remain in your seats until the plane has safely reached the gate,” some jerk gets up and starts jerking his (or her) bag out of the bin, even before the cabin lights have been turned on.

A wedding reception is a large party like any other large party.

Planning the Wedding If your wedding is to be a large or formal affair, if you have the budget, you may want to hire a wedding planner. You may be perfectly capable of planning the wedding together and with the help of your family and friends.

However, if you do decide you want a party, then there are some important engagement party etiquette rules and guidelines to follow: 1. The bride's father is the first to invite the guests to raise their glass in honor of the bride-and-groom-to-be. After his short speech, other guests may propose toasts to the couple and their parents. While the bride-to-be has her new engagement ring to flash around, it may be a nice gesture on her part to present her husband-to-be with a long-lasting gift as a memento of this occasion.

No one should be invited to the engagement party that is not invited to the wedding. Guests are not expected to bring gifts to an engagement party, but if they do, open them in private or after the party. It is not a rule of engagement party etiquette, however, a popular gift of choice is a watch engraved with the date, his initials or a special message. Traditionally, the parents of the bride host the engagement party, but there aren't hard and fast rules.

Engagement Party Etiquette requires the bride's family to host the first social gathering to share the good news with family members and close friends.

If the groom's family resides in a distant hometown, they may also host an engagement party for the couple.
