Laurencio Adot for custom made wedding gown, Santa Fe 1752 4 A
Not sure I have ever seen off the rack wedding gowns here.
For the dinner attire Rochas for the suit and George for the shirt, both on Alvear. It is not referred to as a Tux but Smoker or Smoking attire.

There is another store that I have seen on Callao between Marcelo T. Alvear and Sante Fe for smokers. Seems that they display Morning Coats in the window.

Re: buying a Wedding Dress from Buenos Aires

Why don't you buy you wedding clothes where you live? What if there is a problem? How are you going to carry the stuff home? Will you have to pay a duty charge when you get home? Do you think that the styles will be any different here from there? They won't be. Prices may be higher here and the quality; no comment. The only reason that I can think of buying your wedding attire here would be just to tell everyone "I bought my dress in BA".
Why don't you come to BA and enjoy everything that the city has to offer, instead of going crazy looking looking for clothes. Also, as a foreigner, you may (will?) pay a higher price, ever if you speak fluent Spanish.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

take a walk at AVENIDA 9e DE...

by szabolcs

take a walk at AVENIDA 9e DE JULIO - this is the main avenue in Bs As running North to South.
It has two remarkable sights: the Teatro Colon and the Obelisco. The other buildings are made colourful by the vast advertising signs on top of them. The avenue is said to be the widest in the world (although when I was in Beijing the Chinese claimed their Chang'an Avenue to be the widest). Whatever the truth is it is impressive. There is no way you can pass through the avenue during one green light at a pedestrian crossing, maybe this is why this avenue is said to be a pedestrian's nightmare. Anyway it's worth some time since this is the bustling heart of this lively and vibrant Argentine metropolis.

Street Tango

by Bwana_Brown

Tango dancing is the soul of Argentina! This dance form is thought to have originated in the 1880s as a form of entertainment for the many labourers of European descent who settled in the poorer areas of the city as they tried to make their fortune in the New World.

Because they had left their loved ones behind, the men were lonely and frequently sought out the company of ladies of the night. While waiting for their favours, the men entertained each other with their new dance invention, dripping with sorrow and longing as well as a touch of aggression.

We went to a tango musical while in the city (see my Nightlife tips) which tried to convey this history of the amazing Tango dance!

This couple, on the streets of La Boca, were entertaining for the passing tourists, or you could also have your photo taken with them - for a price!

Quality goods

by trvlrtom about Plata Nativa

While located in an arcade off calle Florida, Plata Nativa's shelves have more unique and high quality items such as religious images, reliquaries, charms, domestic altars, old paintings and crafts. On display are pre-Columbian, colonial and indigenous pieces including a contemporary jewelry made of silver and semi-precious stones.
You can spend a little money and buy some one-of-a-kind silver earrings, or spend a lot on original pieces. Either way, it is worth the time to step in off calle Florida just to see what is on display.

Azucar for Salsa & Best Cines

by Waterdance

For salsa dancing many locals go for classes and meeting to:

Azucar Disco Bar, Av. Corrientes 3330
www.azucarsalsa.com

or to: Azucar in Cabildo 2040, subte linea D, station Juramento, Belgrano

My favourite cines are (and I think they are the best options):

-Village Recoleta (Plaza Frances, Recoleta)

-Cinemark Palermo (2 blocks away from shopping Alto Palermo, station Bulnes, linea D).
