An engagement ceremony marks the beginning of a wedding celebration. It is the day when the bride and the groom make a commitment to wed. While traditionally an engagement announcement was made at a private ceremony attended by close family members, recent times have seen a trend towards more lavish ceremonies where usually the bride’s family throws a party and the announcement is made public.
