Argentines to Wed at Buenos Aires’ Most Iconic Sites

BUENOS AIRES – The Caminito street museum in the La Boca neighborhood, the Palermo district’s Rose Gardens, the historic Belgrano tango bandstand and the majestic Colon Theater, besides being some of the most iconic sites in Buenos Aires, from now on will serve as settings for the weddings of those fortunate couples who win the raffle.

“Weddings are to be held at emblematic sites, of which each community has different places, and starting today, those interested can visit the Web site of the Civil Registry to enter their names” for a chance to make their weddings even more unforgettable, Agustina Javiv, an employee at the Undersecretariat of Government which manages the Civil Registry, said in a statement to EFE.

This Monday, 12 couples of the 4,000 who registered online were the first to get married in the Salon Dorado of the Colon Theater in its “justice of the peace” mode.

“We were going to get married some time ago...but we won the draw so we had to change all the dates and, well, here we are,” Gala Alonso told EFE after marrying Mariano Lo Cane.

For this couple the chance to have their wedding in the majestic Colon Theater signified a “dream come true.”

This project fits into a program of citizen participation that aims to take “more and more government decisions that affect the daily lives of the people, and have them decided by the people themselves,” the head of government of the autonomous city of Buenos Aires, Horacio Rodriguez Larreta, said Monday morning.

The Colon Theater, being the location that got the most votes (60,747), was the first to officially launch an initiative that will allow special places in the city to become, from Feb. 13 to April 30, improvised “altars” where happy couples will say “I do.”
