The Groom’s parents should contact the bride and her parents when the couple become engaged and invite them for a visit.
If the bride lives in another city, a note should be written to welcome her into the family. A friendly note should also be written to her parents.
A dinner or some party should be given for the bride.
Traditionally, the bride’s parents cover the major financial portion of the wedding. Since the size of the wedding is often dictated by the affordability of the bride’s parents, it is appropriate for the groom and his parents to limit their guests to the number of people that the bride’s family suggests.
The groom’s family may give a rehearsal party or dinner.
