A formal event may take place at a public location, or in someone's home. Although some aspects of these social affairs have evolved, strict protocol remains involved for most formal dinner parties, dances, and other official events. Whether you are the host, or an attendee, there are certain rules of etiquette to be aware of; being prepared for certain situations will ease the tension, and make for an enjoyable event.
