Tips for Proper Etiquette – When To Stand

There is nothing worse than finding yourself in an unfamiliar situation where everyone is standing and you are sitting, or vice versa.
Here is a short list of when to do what:
When to stand
§  When an older person enters a room
§  At a wedding when the bride comes down the aisle
§  When shaking hands
§  During a salute to the flag
§  When being introduced to someone
§  When the Star Spangled Banner is played
In future posts I will discuss sitting, bowing and kneeling.
 Until then, remember you need to practice good etiquette to be able to meet demanding social situations with confidence.
