Wedding Celebration

Wedding celebration in German village in Russia
"The bride and the bridegroom choosed somebody, who represented them by guests inviting. It was usually a man, who knew a lot of little poems, rhymes and jokes. He took a stick with a ring and went from house to house invitng guests. If the family agree to visit the celebration, they bend a colored ribbon on the ring. The man told jokes and rhymes for them. At the end of invitation his stick was full of blue, red and white ribbons. On the day of wedding ceremony the bridegroom and his guests went to the bride. The man with a stick was at the head of the prosession, and more gusts joined them later. The most funny was the second day. It was a kind of peformance. The gusts performed the bride and the bridegroom (it was shown on the picture) and again the whole prosession marched through the village with orchester, dancing and singing and making jokes. Sometimes the streets were 'closed' and the wedding prosession had to 'pay', that they could move further. They 'paid' wodka for the russian and with cakes and sweets for the Germans."
