Ok, who is involved in the tea ceremony? I plan on having the ceremony prior to our wedding ceremony. My parents are divorced. Do I them separately or together (I tink they’ll kill each other if together). Do I do grandma? My fiance is American and do I involve his parents? HELP!

@jenjen96: you would traditionally get your parents input, they decide who you serve tea to. But usually you serve your parents first, then eldest to youngest (grandparents etc).
my understanding is that you serve the brides family first as a way of representing her exiting the family. Then you leave the brides house for the grooms place to serve tea to his family.
for divorced parents it’s ok to honour them separately, your father first (and partner, if he has one), then mother (and partner, if she has one)
