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. 婚禮婚礼

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...!
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
+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((((
demonsoldierchem (3 years ago)
The wedding looks so fun, it's like club in house!!!! :D
Nikolai Harhai (3 years ago)
Why are people not going to the church anymore? I didn't catch that...
Nikolai Harhai (3 years ago)
+spacecadet16141 Makes a lot of sense. Could very well be.
spacecadet16141 (3 years ago)
+Nikolai Harhai I think it has something to do with when religion was banned under communist practice. not entirely sure on that though, so don't quote me on it.

Beautiful wedding day.......
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
Thank you, this is just a little part of all day)
Какая волга-кросотка на первых минутках показана!
Молодец! А я в юности грезил о Жигулях. Тогда это было весьма круто...
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
+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)
Кстати, 2-ая серия!
Good good job!
К огорчению, у меня не было таковой классической женитьбы. рядовая студенческая вечеринка, в общежитии и с приготовленными блюдами своими руками. Но я доволен, люблю свою супругу.
+Olga Reznikova Да, это этак. Тогда шикарные рестораны и кортежи казались нам сказкой. 
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
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.
Beautiful bride! And why do you have a christmas tree?
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
+Papa Bear Huh, I'm not expert, because wedding is really different in every part in Ukraine. But it's always interesting, because always you can see something new.
Papa Bear (3 years ago)
+Olga Reznikova My relatives is in Ukraine and onces time 3 my cousin got married at the same time. So I'm expert in ukrainian wedding now!
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
+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?
Papa Bear (3 years ago)
+Olga Reznikova And decorate it with pink stripes...
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
+Papa Bear Yes! I look at traditional "giltse" and it looks boring and poor for me, so I decided to make a little changes)
