Getting married in Astrakhan
When it comes to weddings, Russia is still a country proud of its traditions. Some traditional aspects of a wedding in Astrakhan are a friend of the bride putting her first earring in when she’s getting ready and the groom paying a ransom. In this tradition the groom comes to the bride’s home and goes through a comic routine of paying a mock ransom and receiving a false bride until he ups the ransom and finally takes his true bride to the church.
Sometimes the couple also choose to have a crowning ceremony after their betrothal. The Eastern Orthodox Church uses the placing of crowns on the newly wed couple’s heads as a sign of matrimony rather than rings. Couples used to wear their crowns for eight days but luckily for their comfort they are usually removed at the end of the ceremony now.
