In France, it's nearly similar to celebrate marriage : civil wedding and christian wedding most of time, but there's a lot of religions too. I don't know their customs.
Tolerance, complicity, good health and a lot of children make for a lasting relationship.

Hello there! interesting video but I have a question: what's the difference between wife and bride?

Hello Frederica911,

Bride is the word we use to describe the woman who is getting married at a wedding ceremony. Wife is the word for a woman who is married.

nice video, in my Country Peru the most of the wedding ceremonies are Christian, some people take it as tradition others with the properly meaning, there are many couples also live together without any wedding ceremonies some of them later make a civil or religious ceremonial.

The civil ceremony is the real wedding.
All the others like traditions, religious ceremonies, etc... are not part of the official wedding.
