When greeting someone for the first time, one could say that the protocol would be to shake hands. This is an accepted response and invites further communication. The natural progression of getting to know one another has begun.
Indeed a wedding reception with a successful grand entrance, for example, is kind of like a handshake. Guests are welcomed and the event is set in motion.
In this episode, Tobey posed this question “Is Protocol what happens at a certain time?” Or “is protocol what is traditional and customary?”
I think it’s a combination of both. And much like a handshake, protocol invites further communication, and in the case of a wedding celebration, facilitates the joining of two families.
And now please enjoy Wedding and Event Podcast episode 28 “Protocol” Part 2
