In Russia there are two types of Russian wedding ceremonies namely:

1. Orthodox/Church Wedding

The beautiful bride and groom stand inside the entrance of the church and the priest blesses them and gives them lighted candles which they will hold throughout the ceremony. The couple each has a witness who holds gold crowns above their heads as the ceremony takes place. The priest then says two brief prayers for the couple and the rings are blessed and placed on the couple's right hand. The bride and groom each publicly professes that they are marrying of their own free will and that they have not promised themselves to another. The priest places the crowns on the heads of newlyweds making them King and Queen. The two then sip wine three times to signify their union as one.

2. Traditional Wedding

Traditional Russian wedding celebrations usually last for two to three days involving lots of merry making and traditional practices. At the wedding reception, the newlyweds take a loaf of bread instead of the conventional wedding cake. The couple attempt to take a big bite from it at the same time with no hands allowed! There are lots of desserts and different kinds of cakes served.

Popular Wedding Traditions And Customs Practiced In Russia

Russians have a rich sense of culture and their weddings are very beautiful and full of interesting cultural practices that will leave a foreigner wowed. 

  • The family of the bride “steals” and hides her before the ceremony and return the beautiful queen of the day, only after the groom has presented money or jewelry.
  • The bride’s wedding dress should be white and should not have been made by the bride or her mother. A friend of the bride who is already married also places the first earring on the bride-to-be before the wedding ceremony to make her more beautiful.
  • The groom is required to prove his love and commitment to his future bride by arriving at the church before her.
  • Once rings are exchanged, the newlyweds are blessed and sip wine; they break their glasses for good luck. Guests shout “gorko,” which means “bitter” and the couple has to kiss to sweeten the wine.
  • After a wedding ceremony the newlyweds have to take a tour of their city.
  • Finally families of Russian brides traditionally give salt and bread to the couple to wish them prosperity and good luck.

Russian Wedding Superstitions

  • The right hand is seen as good, while left has is considered as mischievous.  For this reason the wedding ring is worn on the right hand.
  • To avoid unhappiness, brides never wear their dress or shoes before the wedding day.
  • Russian ladies believe that a marriage on the month of May is doomed to failure.
  • If it rains on someone's wedding, it means they'll be wealthy.

  • Taking your wedding ring off to show it to someone else means you are giving away your love and happiness to a stranger.

A senior student majoring in translation ( from and into English and French), a freelance translator and an amateur digital artist, trying to doodle my way into the world of happy, making-a-living, sleep-deprived professional artists. Somehow I bet that a good majority of people here won't get past my profile photos. But just in case you decide you want to know a little more about me, here are a few little fun (and not) facts about me: *I'm athletic, always have been. I represented my school in every available sports competition (except for maybe skiing), used to be a part of my university volleyball team, did a bit of boxing and wushu later on. If I had the time I'd probably hit the gym everyday at least for the benefit of keeping my insomnia at bay. As of last December, a big CrossFit enthusiast. *I love China. It's language, history, culture, cuisine. and it's wonderful people. I spent a year studying there and working on the side as an editor, the English language tutor and model, and it was one of the most wonderful experiences in my life. *I am a big foodie. I love tasting new things and trying to make them on my own, but I rarely have someone to share them with. (麻辣烫 3) *I am big on reading and not very picky about genres. As long as the writing is good and catchy and the plot is not too predictable, I can enjoy a non-fiction, a historical novel, a sci-fi book or even a romance novel. *I like being around people but I'm not very sociable. I know it sounds strange. In short, you'll never find my going to a club or to a big social gathering, but if I have some translating to do or some sketch ideas in mind, I'd rather take them to a coffee shop, a park and maybe have an occasional, friendly chat with someone just for fun. *I am very hardworking when I do something I truly like or when I have a certain goal to reach. *Among all the forms of art landscape painting is my favorite, more specifically the works of Hudson River School artists like T.Moran and A.Bierstadt, T.Cole, E.Church, A.Durand and many others. I adore the works of some Norwegian artists like Even Ulving. They are not widely known but their portraits of fjords and rural life are absolutely wonderful. Aivazovsky as my favorite marine artist, do I even have to mention his name? :D *I might add a few things to this list later. Or not. Somehow I feel that not many will care to read it all anyway
