Dating and marriage traditions in brazil
I was also part of a children's fairy tale during the ceremony (as the "moon"). Your description of the Russian wedding was very accurate, and I made a copy to keep in my private scrapbook of the wedding.
Thank you for providing an insight into Russian ways and traditions.
When considering the customs of Mexican culture, one cannot fail to note the role that weddings play in the celebrations of the country.
Another element that is key to note is that of the padrinos and madrinas.
After the engagement is announced, each couple has to choose a set of Godparents, a large honour for those selected, who they consider wise as advisors for their marriage, and who will be there in times of trouble and as aids and counsellors for problems.
Her parents, the groom's parents, and everyone attending the wedding made me feel very honored, loved, and respected.
