I really enjoy weddings with numerous special traditions, intertwined with the typical wedding traditions,
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.
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.
I had the pleasure of attending three weddings this year, and will share some of the special traditions and pictures from each of these weddings.
This wedding was very special to us, since the daughter of our long time friend was getting married, and also because the wedding ceremony was taking place in the same church as the filming of the, the ever so popular movie, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”.
June is a very popular month for weddings, at least in the United States. I have attended many weddings with various traditions, but if you ever attended a Ukrainian wedding, you can attest to the fact that there is lots of food, endless desserts, special breads (Greeting Bread and Korovai) in addition to the Wedding Cake, and lots of dancing, to most likely lots of very fast beats of a Ukrainian live band.
