Dating and marriage customs in russian total bulgaria dating site
This puts a lot of pressure on the man and requires their 100% effort and enthusiasm.
This includes calling, asking the girl out, fixing all the details, paying for everything during the date, walking her home or at least organizing a taxi.
Wedding Dress The bride never wears her dress or shoes before the day of the wedding, to ensure her happiness.
Apparently, the family of the bride “steals” the bride and hides her before the ceremony and refuses to return her until the groom has presented money or jewelry in exchange for her return.
As with much of Russian culture, the wedding celebration is full of traditions.
The traditional Russian wedding lasts for at least two days, but sometimes lasts as long as a week.
"I love you" means I accept you for the person you are and I do not wish to change you into someone else.
It means that I will love you and and stand by you even through the worst ...
In fact, much of what you’ve learned in your dating career probably won’t do you any good when it comes to Russian women.
Sometimes, they will dress a cousin of the bride (occasionally male for more comedy) up in white and cover his/her face with a veil and present him/her to the groom after he has made the first “payment.” After he has realized that the cousin is not his bride, he has to make a second payment in order for his real bride to be returned to him.
Another version that I found said that the groom is presented with a napkin with the lipstick prints of all of the bride’s family, including the bride herself.
If he can’t correctly identify his bride’s kiss, then he pays tribute.
One form of this is said to be covering a shall with rubles in payment.
Dating in Russia is pretty much the same as everywhere else - it is fun and a good way to meet people!
