  marriage and religion - the vin d'honneur Version en Français

The "vin d'honneur"


When there is a lapse of time mattering enough between the ceremony and the meal, it is the custom to offer a "vin d'honeur", constituted by diverse drinks and by light meals, to the participants.


 For some of the guests, who are not invited in the meal, it is the slightest politenesses which we can make them.

In a reserved room for that purpose, or in the place of residence of one of the parents, and if it is possible, outdoor, a table will be decorated, to which the dinner guests will come be been of use .

Seats or benches will be at their disposal, especially if there are old persons, but there will be no other tables where they could settle down. It will be an occasion, after the tension that caused the preparations and the ceremony, to relax, to make more ample knowledge, and to chat quietly. 

The bridegrooms will have to linger more particularly with those who are not invited in the meal, that they thank them, verbally, for having come and for the presents that they made.
