What is the Ukrainian wedding? What is the ukrainian tradition?I will tell you on my example.
In the morning the groom with his family comes to the bride, but bride's friends first but do not let him to see her. Friends of the bride say that they have a very good, intelligent, smart girl and groom must prove that he is worthy of the bride.
He must perform several different tasks. Which task – depends on the bridesmade.
By the way, there is always one main bridesmaid and bridegroom the wedding . Recently, we also can a lot of bridesmades, but still there is one main girl.
Tasks to be performed groom are: guess the smell of bride, called her favorite movies, shoe size, clothes, say I love you in many languages, etc. Tasks can be either. If the groom does not know answer - he has to pay a lot of money.
Once he passes all the tasks he can see the bride.
The groom gives her bouquet and bride puts him buttonhole.
Then parents blesses the young couple and they go marry to register office or have ceremony. Traditionaly young couple went to the church, but in soviet Union it was forbidden so we used register office.
The ceremony is the same as abroad, only there is a towel with stitchery.
Bride must stich it by herself and think about good future life. Traditionally every girl do this, but now mostly everybody buy it. I do it by myself – I stich my destiny and don’t want to delegate it women from market.
Then we step on the towel. Who will be the first – he will be the head of the family.
Then begins the celebration of the wedding. We celebrate a wedding in the restaurant and cook a lot of food. - all my american friends who were at my wedding were shocked that we have so much food. Although the comparison with Ukrainian wedding, I haven’t so much food.
We have a special presenter at the wedding, which entertains people. In addition there are musicians who play and sing.
Totally wedding have three stages. That first people eat - and then dance and entertain. Then again bring new food, eat again – then have fun.
Someone can steal the bride and ask groom to give money she back.
And in third stagesnobody eat because everybody is full, but again bring new food, dessert and dancing and then begin the most interesting parts.
Take off the veil of the bride. This is a sign that she was not a girl but a woman now.
Then all the girls who are not married yet dance with a veil.
Then throw the bouquet and starts a family dance.
And everything ends with a wedding.
This is a brief description. In West Ukraine is a lot of tradition, in eastern Ukraine is much less. This is such a middle option.
The next day, all the guests come back and just sit, eat and have fun, but not as the first day.

I was lucky to be invited to a wedding in a village in Western Ukraine. It was great... 3 days of wedding fun. 1 day with traditional Ukrainian dress, walking in the streets singing (with the whole group of bridesmaids), the special tree, bread and more. Then the day after in western clothes..to the church and party in the evening.
They stayed up all night and then in the morning the groom came to the bride and tried to buy her (what you described..tried to outsmarten her friends and family). It was really special...!
+JaLingua Jacqueline Oh yes, only West Ukraine and villages keep ukrainian traditions of real wedding. it always was a great celebration, just now we try to repeat european tradition, when wedding is just like party((((
+Андрей Полковник Ого, здесь прям сообщество волговоов)
Да, это моя машна, весьма ее люблю) Купити с супругом еще на 3 курсе института,этак, для себя... Вот она стоит и красуется, время от времени выезжаем)
Да хорошо, у меня кушать несколько друзей, у которых была весьма роскошная свадьба, и они развелись не прожив и года. Совершенству вовек дудки предела... Но самое главное, это то, что вы чувствуете в этот момент. Если вы чувствуете себя счастливым - это самое главное. И совсем не принципиально, будто и где ваша свадьба проходит.
Студенческая свадьба - это весьма классно. И забавно.
+Papa Bear Ha ha, this is not me! This is my husband's fantasy and his friends... But why not? It's better that paper decoration, because it look very poor after the first rain.
By the way, you know a lot about ukrainian wedding! How?
Owned buildings at another site may be used as alternate workspace if a building cannot be occupied. This depends upon the location of the building and whether the building would be affected by the same hazard that prevented use of the primary building. The alternate facility may be a viable business recovery strategy if the building can be configured with the required equipment or existing equipment can be configured to need business requirements.
Systems and Equipment.
Evaluate these systems to determine whether they meet the needs of the program. Identify and plan to overcome emergency communication system limitations such as weak radio or cellular service or areas where a warning system cannot be heard. Upgrading this critically important system may be required. Verify that these systems are in reliable working condition.
If fuel, battery backup power or batteries are required, make sure the system can run for the required time and chargers are available. Document how to operate these systems and mark the locations of controls. Make sure the information is available during an emergency. Many of these systems also require periodic inspection, testing and maintenance in accordance with national codes and standards. Train staff so a knowledgeable person is able to operate systems and equipment.
Materials and Supplies.
Be sure to compile a list of available resources using the Emergency Response Resource Requirements and Business Continuity Resource Requirements worksheets as a guide.
Preparing for an emergency, responding to an emergency, executing business recovery strategies and other activities require resources that come from outside the business. If there were a fire in the building, you would call the fire department. Contractors and vendors may be needed to prepare a facility for a forecast storm or to help repair and restore a building, systems or equipment following an incident.
The following external resources should be identified within plan documents. Include contact information to reach them during an emergency and any additional instructions within the preparedness plan.
Public Emergency Services.
Contractors and Vendors.
