People from around the world have different customs and traditions when it comes to wedding ceremonies. And as an American, I will admit — some aspects of our weddings in the US can seem a bit odd, amirite?

So, hey, non-Americans, what do you think are the weirdest things about American weddings?


Like, maybe doing popular line dances like the "Cha Cha Slide" during the reception are more awkward than anything else.


Or maybe the idea of a wedding gift registry is actually very uncommon — and would be kinda weird — where you’re from.

Or perhaps you’ve always thought that most American wedding ceremonies are wayyyy too short compared to the HOURS — or even days — of celebration in other countries.
