Russian Marriage Cultures

Every culture has a wealth of wedding traditions and Russia is no exception. While many modern Russian people opt for a more «westernized» service that only requires them to sign their names in a registry office ( or as we call it Zags https://www.shutterfly.com/ideas/i-love-you-quotes/), there are still those who want to go the whole hog and have the traditional Catholic event with all of its related entertaining.

As an example, a standard Russian couple likely greet their relatives as they enter the house with bread and salt. This is a means of wishing the new partners a long life together. After this, the newlyweds will have a special dinner of korovai, a rounded wedding food filled with different icons such as pigeons, flowers, sun and stars, all wishing the couple health, prosperity and happiness.

During the welcome, guests are encouraged to fall a bit of cash on the floor around the brides, known as «dvoryanka». This traditional custom embodies a couple’s hope for great success in life.

Another custom is that the wedding throws her flower at the attendees instead of the bride. Someone https://toprussianbrides.com/russian-brides-club-review/ caught it is thought to be the second couple to marry, so they must be very cautious not to kick too difficult. A piece of the plate must be positioned underneath their pillow for those who do n’t catch the bouquet.

The «ransom» is another well-known part of a Russian bridal. In essence, the groom’s associates abduct the wedding and keep her until he finishes a string of commitments that will inevitably humiliate him. To free the girl, the wedding must make either authentic or metaphorical payment.
