Wedding traditions vary greatly all over the world. In the Czech Republic a tree is planted in the couple’s honour, and in India weddings often last for multiple days, with various rituals taking place in the family’s home.
Perhaps one of the biggest cultural differences is the amount of money couples spend on their celebrations. According to The Knot’s 2015 Real Weddings Study, Americans are spending an average of $32,641 on their weddings, while Europeans spend much less, averaging around $5,000.
But no matter where the celebration occurs, you can usually spot a happy bride and groom beaming at the camera. In celebration of that, photo-sharing app EyeEm gathered some of their users’ best shots of modern weddings all over the world. Keep scrolling to see them.
