Wedding in Russian folk style

  1. Loca­tion. The roots of the Russ­ian folk­go far into the vil­lage tra­di­tions, and there­fore it is advis­able to cel­e­brate in the coun­try­side. So, choose a land­scape with beau­ti­ful ponds, a birch grove away from set­tle­ments. The option of a cityin restau­rants, cafes dec­o­rat­ed in eth­nic style is not exclud­ed.
  2. Suits for ain the style of Russ­ian folk. The clothes of the new­ly­weds should be designed in white and red col­ors. The tra­di­tion­al out­fit of the future wife is a com­bi­na­tion of a red sun­dress and a white shirt. As a dec­o­ra­tion for your head, choose a wreath woven from field herbs, or an old cres­cent-shaped head­dress, a kokoshnik. Weave col­or­ful rib­bons into your hair. Wood­en beads, bracelets will serve as acces­sories. The groom puts on a white shirt, loose pants with a red belt. Ask guests to come in sash­es (belt), caps (men’s head­dress) and embroi­dered sun­dress­es.
  3. Hall dec­o­ra­tion. Add tow­els, table­cloths embroi­dered with pat­terns, white lace nap­kins to the inte­ri­or. Place field bou­quets of flow­ers tied with a bright rib­bon on the tables. If pos­si­ble, put them in clay jars (a ves­sel for milk). Above the ceil­ing, win­dows and, direct­ly, the front door, hang flower wreaths, gar­lands. Do not for­get about white cur­tains, wood­en charms, wick­er rugs.
  4. Ban­quet table. Give pref­er­ence to one of the main tra­di­tions of the Russ­ian folk wed­ding: loaf with bread and salt. Do not for­get that thetable should be long. Crock­ery should be cho­sen with wood­en spoons, birch bark trays. Dish­es paint­ed under the old dec­o­ra­tive Khokhlo­ma looks bewitch­ing. In the hol­i­day menu, include kurnik (a kind of chick­en pie), pan­cakes with fill­ings, roast in pots, pies with cab­bage, rice, berries, veg­etable sal­ads, meat and pota­toes, bagels, herbal tinc­tures, kvass, kalach bread, berry fruit drinks. Do not for­get about tea from the samovar. As for the­cake, it can be in the form of a large cake, or a trio of hors­es, a wood­en hut.
