Bulgarian Wedding Day


The Bulgarian wedding day begins on Thursday with a ritual kneading of bread called “medenik”. On Friday the wedding day flag is prepared, on Saturday the “kalesnitsi” (inviters) are sent, who invite guests to the wedding on Sunday. The wedding day begins with putting the bridal veil on bride's head and singing to her, after that she is taken away to the home of the fiancé. There she gives gifts to the guests of the rich wedding feast. On Monday after the wedding day, the ritual is performed of taking the bride out of the house in order to fill water and take the bridal veil off. The beauty and fantasy of the folk tradition even today is implicated in the wedding ritual of young Bulgarian, who respects their origin.
