Wedding ceremony

As part of the Russian wedding ceremony, people still enjoy the tradition of ransoming the bride. Before the young couple leave to go to the ZAGS
(Registry Office), the groom must go to his future wife's house where he will
be greeted by friends of the bride, relatives and guests. They organise
various fun games for the groom, like, for example, asking him challenging
risque questions, persuading him to carry out certain tasks and demanding a
ransom for the bride. The groom must fulfil all the tasks, namely, singing,
dancing, reciting poetry, solving riddles and various other challenges. Then,
as a ransom, he must give out sweets and money to all those who have
arranged the obstacles along the way to him winning his bride (in other
words, those who have set the groom challenges to prove that he is worthy
of his bride.)

There is an age-old tradition that on the day before the wedding the bride
will arrange a hen party and invite all her friends who will support and
protect her in her new life. It is now also common for the groom to arrange a
stag party; a tradition that has been imported from the West. The groom will
say goodbye to his bachelor lifestyle whilst in the company of his friends.

Official documentations of marriage in Russia

After the registration in the ZAGS and (often) the ceremony in the church, the newlyweds and all their guests go to the reception which is usually held
in a restaurant, a banqueting hall or at someone's house. By tradition, the
young couple are met by the mother of the groom or all the parents who
offer them bread and salt. The young couple must then take turns to eat the
bread. The person who eats the largest piece of bread will be the head of the
household. This equal opportunity ritual between the couple has only been
observed recently as before it would have always been the male who would
stand at the head of the household. As the young newlyweds enter the
reception hall, they are showered with oats or wheat and occasionally rose-
petals to make the scene more beautiful. This tradition is often neglected

Old custom of Russian weddings

An essential part of a Russian wedding, whatever form it's in, whether
traditional or European, is that someone will “steal” the bride  (often her
friends or relatives) and hide her somewhere. The groom then has to find
her. His friends and relatives help him carry out the fun search.

Compulsory kiss in Russian wedding

A fundamental component of the Russian wedding is the cries of “gor'ko”where the newlyweds must stand and kiss for as long as possible. All the guests stand round them and count “1, 2, 3… 15…. 20, etc.” The longer the young couple can kiss for, the stronger their union will be. The guests always demand that they kiss for as long as possible. Often, the reception can be a tiring experience for the young couple as they have to entertain their guests by this kissing ritual.
