I think in some places, like the United States- weddings are straying more and more from traditions!

In Argentina , engagement rings are your wedding rings, and you wear them on your right hand ( both man and woman) and on the day of the ceremony , you switch them to your left.

There are no bridal parties, so your parents bring each of you to the altar, and they stand with you. 

Legal marriage and Church marriage are two different entities, you can’t have a pastor sign off on your papers. You have two weddings: The courthouse then the religious ( if you are).

Parties last all night long and into the next morning. Argentineans typically eat dinner around 9-10 p.m

What do you plan on doing for your wedding? Are you keeping to Brit traditions or venturing out?
