At Japanese wedding party, the presenter will introduce how bride and groom met each other

At Japanese wedding party, the presenter will introduce how bride and groom met each other.
But not all of the couples met each other in "clean" way. Some of them met through dating app, or picked up on the street.
In these case, the presenter cannot straightforwardly "They met through dating app!!!". If they do, it will be a tragedy.
Therefore they rephrase these awkward acquaintance into "clean" one.

Lets see 4 examples how they rephrase.

In case they met through SNS, dating app or online games.... → "They met though common hobby"

In case they met through dating app or SNS or anything online, the presenter would most likely rephrase it as "they met through common hobbys".
In this way, the presenter is not telling a lie. And even if someone asked bride or groom how they really met, they can answer "we met at meet up event of this hobby! We found this meet up online!"
See? They are not telling a lie.

If groom picked up bride on the street... → "They found out destined one out of thousands of chances"

In case groom picked up bride on the street, it is so hard to explain. The best choice would be make it blur.
Therefore presenter tends to make it vague. Thus they would say something like "They are destined to meet each other....". or "They are meant to meet each other since they were born"

In case they met at matchmaking interview party... → "They met at an event that she attended with her friends"

matchmaking interview party (婚活パーティー) is getting more and more popular these days. But it is still awkward to say "We met at 婚活パーティー" outloud.

Therefore presenter likely to rephrase it as "They met at an event". But this is not good enough. By adding "with her friends", it gives groundless persuasive power to this lie.

If bride is groom's friend's ex-girlfriend or vise versa → "Groom met bride with an introduction of his friend!! "

This is the most awkward case.
In this case, let's super positive and rephrase it "with an introduction from his/her friend".
Maybe bride/groom and his/her friend quarrelled like crazy or even broke their relationship. Maybe they refuse to attend the wedding party. But presenter would say "with an introduction from his/her friend".

"with an introduction from his/her friend" is very convenient expression because presenter use this expression when bride and groom truly met through friend's introduction. Nobody knows the truth.

If you have a chance to attend Japanese wedding party, you can carefully listen how presenter rephrase their "acquaintance".
You can kill time by imagining how they really met while someone is making boring speech on the stage.
