I’d say the most common traditions from the States are the engagement ring and wedding band being worn on the left hand, the father giving away the bride, the tossing of the bouquet and garter, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, the first dance, parent dances, and cutting of the cake and feeding it to each other. I’m not sure how prevalent these traditions are around the world, but they’re all very indicative of a traditional American wedding.

Lighting a unity candle to symbolize the joining of the couples is also very popular in the States.

I think if you do a search on here, you’ll find many responses to this. There are not only cultural but regional differences as well.

@CassidyR: Jumping the broom is a tradition in the African American culture. Also, I don’t know if I saw the first kiss mentioned previously and of course consummating the marriage on your wedding night.
