Off topic: Information needed about Ukrainian wedding traditions (in Montreal)
Thread poster: Nina Khmielnitzky
I will be getting married at a Ukrainian church in Montreal next year and in order to get ready, I would need information about the traditions and ceremony. I found a few descriptions in English on the Internet.
Are there translators who could tell me, for example, what the traditional cloths (2) that I must find should look like?
Be happy - this is the most important tradition to follow, I strongly believe.
Then, you can visit http://www.infoukes.com/ and browse the site for the info you need. You can even go to infoukes mailing list there and ask people - you may probably get a knowlegdeable consultant right there in Montreal. Other general resource: http://www.brama.com/ and results for my search on 'Ukrainian wedding': http://www.brama.com/cgi-bin/htsearch

Every church has its own understanding of the wedding ceremony, so You need to consult them.
In fact, most of the traditional rites are to be performed at home (yours and your fiance). To get to further information, You must tell 1) what region of Ukraine You would represent, and 2) if You can read Ukrainian textes (I may recommend You some major books).

Thank you all for the links and information!
Another question: Is it usually tradition for the bride and embroider to sew her own rushnyk, or can it be bought? (I'm not good at sewing, but I'm willing to learn!)
