Conversation A
(Jack and Laura have just received a wedding invitation.)
Jack: What should we give Ben and Tammy for a wedding gift?
Laura: I don’t know. I’ll find out where Tammy is registered.
Jack: Registered?
Laura: Every bride registers in a department store or “home” store. She makes a list of things she wants you know, dishes, linens, things like that. I’ll look at her list and choose something.
Jack: How much do you plan to spend?
Laura: Oh, probably $50 to $100.
Jack: We could just give them money.
Laura: True. But I think a gift is nicer.

Conversation B
(Jack and Laura are at a wedding reception.)
Laura: The bridesmaids’ dresses are beautiful! I love that color of blue.
Laura: I guess they wanted a big wedding.
Jack: And an expensive one.
Laura: The average wedding now costs $25,000 to $30,000.
Jack: Wow! I’m glad ours didn’t cost that much!
Laura: Me too! Well, let’s go through the receiving line. We should congratulate the bride and groom.
Jack: Good idea.

 

Chat Room
Teaching Topic: Who's the best man? 教學主題:伴郎是誰?
groomsmen是男傧相,但有groomsmen还不够另外还要找一个best man伴郎,best man通常是新郎的best friend最要好的朋友或是他的兄弟
maid of honor伴娘只能有一位,所以另外还有3-5个bridesmaids女傧相做伴,bridesmaids 地位没有maid of honor崇高,当maid of honor是种honor荣耀。一般maid of honor 找未婚女性担任,但是如果有时候实在找不到未婚的女性,也可找已婚女士代替,不过这个时候就不叫作maid of honor,而改叫作maitron of honor
