Individuals enjoy celebrating their marriage with family and friends. Depending on where you live, marriage customs can vary greatly, but many couples stick to a few tried-and-true elements and incorporate some eccentricities into their ceremony.

A couple goes through an proposal time known as pomolvka before deciding to get married. The wedding may make some trips to his potential girlfriend’s household and families during this time in an effort to win her hand in marriage. This conversation typically has questions and answers and is riddle-like in nature. The response could remain »yes, » « no, » or « maybe. »

The couple must then waited at the registry business until their day of registration. It might take three weeks to finish this. They are not permitted to interact or see one another during this time. This is done to stop a wedding from erupting.

The few must defeat a variety of challenges on their method to the registry workplace, which the bride’s household makes up for for them. Checks of power, intellect, and a variety of other capabilities can be included in this list. The man must pay a ransom if he fails, which is typically cash, treats, or chocolate restaurants.

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.
