Lately many weddings are devoted to certain thematic ideas. Some couples choose real wedding rituals of forgotten past like the traditional Chuvash wedding.
On April 25 the Marriage Palace of Cheboksary welcomed a Chuvash wedding. Groom Ruvim and bride Irinia dressed in ceremonial outfits decorated with traditional ornaments proceeded into the palace to a Chuvash tune.
Of all the 43 marriages on that day this might have been the most colorful and extraordinary as all the guests who saluted the newlyweds were also dressed in traditional costumes.
