reception 跟 party 有何不同?

昨天參加朋友的婚禮,剛好有對日本夫妻經過,很好奇的問我為何這麼熱鬧。他用了 'wedding reception 這個字,而不是 wedding party。請問有何不同? wedding reception 是固定用法嗎?

    wedding reception 是固定用法

    christmas party, Birthday party. 但是不用wedding party

    慣語吧.

    reception 是指為歡迎或紀念某人某事而舉辦的正式(formal)活動. 結婚是一件值得紀念的事. 而新人是主客. 並不是主辦人. 所以才要用wedding reception 吧.

    party 也有正式(formal)和非正式(informal)之分. 正式(formal)的要發請帖和穿著整齊.非正式(informal)的就不拘服裝了

    A wedding reception(婚宴) = Wedding+Food+Drinks

    An after reception party(婚宴後的舞會) = Drinks+Dancing+Finger Food

    wedding reception 是固定用法嗎?

    Yes!

    在台灣通常只有wedding reception(婚宴), 沒有after reception party(婚宴後的舞會), 但國外有此習慣
