I don't know what that question means but no fewer than a dozen people have asked and all the bridal magazines talk about formal versus informal weddings. None, however, have given a metric.
Therefore, I'm declaring this a formal wedding. The bride is wearing white. The groom is wearing a tuxedo. At the end of the service, we will be married.
If you wish to shine a bit of light on this issue or would like to petition for an alternate classification, please submit your plea post-haste.
