New Year’s Eve Wedding

June is a month for weddings…..at least that is what everyone is saying.  Well, since I am running behind in my wedding posts, I am taking this opportunity to create a short post about a New Year’s Eve wedding I had a pleasure of attending.

I have attended a Christmas season wedding before, but this was my first time at a New Year’s Eve wedding.

It actually was a lot of fun, because until midnight we all were enjoying a typical wedding atmosphere, but as the clock struck midnight the party switched to a New Year celebration.

Ukrainian Wedding – Traditions And Lots More

This was a very traditional Ukrainian wedding, with the Starosty (Elders…Godparents carrying the icons), the Korovai – a Symbolic Ukrainian Wedding Bread, Greeting Bread with salt and wine, lots of embroidered runners (rushnyky), special Icons for the Newlyweds, the Wedding Cake of course, and lots…lots…lots…of food at the Cocktail Hour and at midnight at the Venetian Hour.

This time I will even share pictures of the dress of the Bride, the Bride’s Maids and the Starostyna (Godmother carrying the Icon).

June – Traditional Wedding Month

Many weddings take place in June, maybe because lots of engagements occur before Christmas, and after New Year (close to Valentine’s Day).

I have not been attending any weddings lately, so I don’t have any new pictures to share, but if your did not get a chance to check out my previous wedding posts, you can enjoy them now, by clicking on the links below.
