What is the Sepharadi minhag of standing or not standing during a wedding reception (wedding ceremony)?

When Hakham Ya'aqob Menashe performed my wedding, the attendees stood for the ceremony. That is in accordance with our Sepharadi minhag.

The way people make weddings and Barmiswas are really KOOKOO.
THey spend on a wedding $500,000.00 and when asked to help a fellow jew they have no money. Do not tell me that they spent all their money on the wedding because I see that they have much more. How do I know they have more? can see from their businesses

Hi Eli Cohen
who spends on a wedding $500,000????
In Israel for example people make wonderful Weddings and Bar-Miswas for 300-500 people and pay only 30,000-50,000 IN"SH. which is about $7,500 - $12,500. and the Minhag here is that everybody brings a check as a gift and everybody is happy and the money of the gifts almost covers all the payments!!!
what do you think about it??

Rebmaster, $500,000? Did you add some zeros?

Back to the topic - I've been to sefardi weddings that were performed according to the Baghdadi customs and everyone stands. Syrians do not stand for the ceremony.
To the tangent topic - I'm sure there are some who spend $500,000 on weddings, but regardless, we're all spending way too much, and we'll all agree that its out of hand. In our religion, if we have a question, we ask the rabbis. The Rabbis along with the caterers should come up with a standard for weddings. Obviously, it cannot be enforced as mandatory, but it would be an unbelievable Miswah if someone who could afford the $500,000, opted for the "standard wedding". It would take a lot of pressure off those who cannot afford to mortgage their lives for a one day event.

Here in the Holy Land it is most common to stand during all sefardic weddings.

Agudas Yisrael has made massive restrictions on the way weddings are to be conducted. Ask around for more info.
Even though these restrictions apply to Ashkenazim, it would be a good idea if Sefardim adopt this as well.
It would save alot of money!
