What is the Traditional Russian Wedding?
In every country, there are different unique wedding traditions that are being followed. Though traditions may not be followed at all times because of differences, it is always great if you know some practices. You never knew, even though Russian brides do follow your wedding traditions, they might as well want to incorporate theirs in the plan. It’s cute though, to have a wedding in mixed tradition. It would be fun and amazing.
Russian brides have this belief that a marriage on the month of May is doomed to failure. Certain things will not work when it is conducted in that certain month. So you might not schedule your wedding on May if you want to live happily with your Russian bride. However, Russian brides are open-minded, and they are willing to cooperate with your plans, anyway it’s just a myth. However, there’s nothing wrong if you follow it. So just try the June wedding instead. It would be a great idea to join in the fun of almost all the people in the world. Alternatively, have your wedding date on the 14th of February to make it more Romantic and memorable for your Russian bride.
Another belief of Russian brides is this; the first person of the newlywed to step in the wedding carpet will rule the family. So if you don’t want your Russian bride to rule over you, better take the first step. Alternatively, if you want to have fair domination, then it would be cute if you both step together. This one is pretty cool; what if you race with each other? That would be great.
Other traditions of Russian brides are in line with salt and bread. Families of Russian brides traditionally give salt and bread to the couple because they believe that this will bring prosperity and good luck to the couple’s marriage life. Other countries have this practice too and just like the Russians; they too believed that salt and bread brings prosperity to marriage. Basically, because bread symbolizes food and salt adds flavour to everything. So when your Russian in-laws give you these, accept it! You wanted to have a good future with your Russian bride right?
These traditions and beliefs are just a myth. However, if you want to woo Russian brides, you might as well give this a try. Nothing bad will happen to you if you don’t practice these beliefs but at the same time, you will not lose anything. Traditions are just some sort of belief from the ancient people, and if you incorporate them in your wedding, it will look like you respect the traditions of Russians. So when you do such, you gain trust and admiration from the parents and friends of your Russian bride. However, a good talk with your bride to be great, you can ask her about that issue. In the end, it will be the two of you who will get married and not you and her traditions.
