The month of June is known to be the most favorite month for weddings. So if you have an upcoming wedding marked on your calendar, and are scrambling around for Korovai suggestions, you will have a great head start after this post.
Korovai is a special, creatively decorated bread, with one, two, or three tiers, which is usually made by the mother of the bride, and presented to the bride and groom, with a special blessing.
Today I will share some of my thoughts, and pictures, about the last wedding of 2010 which I attended at the end of December, in upstate New York.
I have been keeping you updated with all the weddings I attended this year, and here is one more, and it might not even be the last once for this year, since I just received a “save a date” for a December wedding.
This wedding was a traditional Ukrainian wedding as you have already learned about his culture, in my previous posts.
Today, I will quote from the Wedding Ceremony Program booklet, prepared by the Bride and Groom, especially for their wedding, to give you a better understanding of the similarities between the Byzantine and the Jewish wedding ceremony traditions.
