Nowadays in the UK you can either get married in a church or in a 1.registry office, but for both you have to get a marriage 2. licence
Before the day of the wedding, the groom traditionally celebrates with his friends on his 3.stag night, while the bride goes out with her friends on a 4. hen night.
The groom chooses a 5. Best man and the bride chooses bridesmaids to accompany them on the wedding day. The best man keeps the ring until the ceremony and the bridesmaids wear special dresses.
The church ceremony is similar to an Italian one, but 6.hymns are always sung. When the couple comes out of the church, the bride throws her 7. bouquet in the air. They say that the woman who catches it will get married soon herself.
The 8. reception after the wedding consists of lunch in a hotel or restaurant. Then there is usually a party with live music and dancing. The best man has to give a 9. speech during the reception.
He tells funny stories about the grooms life. After the reception, when the bride and groom leave to go on their 10. honeymoon, the guests often write Just Married on their car and tie cans and balloons to it.
