Traditions of Ukrainian weddings

Published by

In addition to the official marriage service at the register office, it is customary to hold a few standard events if you are planning a Ukrainian wedding. Among them is the otsitki, where the few is presented with a round white food baguette and salt. A piece of food is supposed to be broken off, dipped in sodium, and eaten by the handful. The more the breads is broken, the better, because this indicates a long and content marriage. They are finally supposed to love the rest. The newlyweds also receive a blanket that they must move on as they exit the service house. This is intended to be the first step into their upcoming home.

The newlyweds are pampered by the family’s ( starosty ) on a rushnyk-style embroidered cloth. A short while before the formal festival, this occurs. If the families are feeling dramatic, they might even attempt to deceive the Bride into paying a okay by bringing out an imitation.

On the day of the wedding ( Saturday or sunday ), the house would be prepared. Flowers and food were picked, food was prepared, and cooking began, typically making korovai, a unique ritual bread made of dough and decorated with periwinkle with birds, plants, and other wildlife. It was customarily made by women who were regarded as having sure traits, including that they were not widows, had happy toddlers, and were wealthy.
