Many Slovak marriage customs properly sound foreigners unfamiliar, but Slovaks truly do cherish them. The ceremony bratislava brides should look beautiful, and if something does n’t look good on camera, they are n’t afraid to retake it. Ethnologist Zuzana Jakubikova told The Slovak Spectator,” It’s like filming a scene: if it does n’t turn out well, you just film it again.”

In a ceremony known as pytacky, grooms used to go to the bride’s parents to ask her for her hand in marriage. However, the groom would have to carry out a number of things to demonstrate his worth to her if her parents objected. Running a gauntlet, dancing with the entire community, and giving presents to her kids were some examples of this.

The” savojka” meeting, where the bride’s family gather to braid her tresses, is another custom. This is a really emotive moment as she prepares for her new living. The pair will then take the same bowl and knife of soup, indicating that they will be combining everyone from now until the end.

Slovak honeymooners were formerly required to see a logs as well. People who needed wood for cooking and heating knew how to use a saw, so they learned about it. This ritual had realistic roots. It’s a much more metaphoric behave now, but it still helps them labor together and grow in respect with one another.
