Wedding customs in Russia

Citizens enjoy celebrating their marriage with family and friends Depending on where you live, wedding customs can vary greatly, but countless people stick to a few tried-and-true elements and incorporate some eccentricities into their festival.

A pair goes through an wedding phase known as pomolvka before deciding to get married. The wedding did repeatedly pay visits to his future girlfriend's parents and residence during this time in an effort to win her hand in marriage. This talk typically has questions and answers and is riddle-like in nature. The response could get"yes," "no," or "maybe."

The couple must then wait at the register business until their time of subscription. It might take three times to finish this. They are not permitted to join or see one another during this time. This is done to stop a marriage from erupting.

The partners must conquer a variety of challenges on their manner to the registry company, which the princess's relatives makes up for them. Checks of strength, intelligence, and a variety of other skills can be included in this list. The man must give a compensation, which is typically cash, treats, or candy bars, if he fails.

After the civil ceremony the couple goes to a venue where they have a reception. There they are greeted by their guests and the toastmaster, who is known as tamada (tamaa). The toastmaster runs all of the contests during the celebration. He also says several toasts, tells jokes and sings songs. Once he drinks the first shot of champagne or vodka he starts all the guests to shout “Gorko!” which means bitter.
