In Russia the wedding ceremony starts in the bride's house. The groom and the bride go to the civil and religious ceremonies, then there is the reception. There are a lot of relatives and friends. However it depends on the couple. Sometimes the bride and the groom want to celebrate this event without any guests.

we never write or say - Groom and bride in english (It's an unwritten law)

It's always bride and groom..... out of politeness to women :O)

And yet...  by the same unwritten rule, we say "husband and wife" not "wife and husband"!

So it seems we are only polite to the women on their wedding day :)
