Wedding in Ukrainian style

Ukrainian wedding is always crowded and filled with national ceremonies. After the main ceremony of meeting the bride and groom, guests sit at tables and eat, socialize, say a lot of toasts for the health and happyness. After all have had enough food, guests go out to the dance floor. Musicians sing with guests some national songs with accompaniment of instruments like accordion, violin and others.
Then after an hour or two of dancing, the MC invites guests to the table again. After more eating, the guests go to dance again. During the second dance break ukrainians have some more traditions to present, like the veil dance. This is where the mother of the groom takes the veil from the head of the bride and puts a white kerchief on her head. This means that this girl says goodbye to single life and from now on her party life is over as she should be an exemplary wife for her husband. While mother-in-law takes off the veil, all unmarried girls on the dance floor make a circle around the bride holding each others hands. After the veil is taken, the bride takes girls inside the circle one after another, puts her veil on the head of a girl and dances with her 1-2 minutes. This ritual gives the other girls an opportunity to know how it feels to be a bride and sort of offers a good luck blessing for being a bride in the future.
After the veil dance, the bride is throwing her bouquet to the unmarried girls - you probably are familiar with such ritual. The groom then takes off the bride's garter and throws it to the bachelors. People dance some more, and then the MC invites them to the table again, as it is time to have some food again. The conclusion of the wedding involves sharing the Korovai or wedding cake. All guests will get their portion, which they will also be able to bring home.
Accompanied with a nice Ukrainian style march, the guests say goodbye to the bride and groom and to each other and go home with happy bellies and tired legs from dancing..
