Bride not permitted to speak to groom's family after engagement?

Q: There's a practice here in my country that after the bride is engaged, she can't see/appear in front of anyone (even females) from the groom's family. Is that practice from Islam?

A: She can speak and appear for them like she may speak and appear before other women.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
