When your wedding venue or party space is located in an upscale area of New York City, you will likely experience formal dining at your next event. There are certain etiquette rules that are commonly used during a formal dining event. Watch the video for a detailed look at etiquette rules regarding silverware.

Silverware will be placed on either side of your dish. You will use each utensil, from the outside going in, as your meals arrive. When finished with each dish, use the silent cues seen in the video to let your wait staff know that you are finished eating.
