It’s something strange even for those who have seen a lot of weddings – these guys for some reason decorated their cars with carpets.
That looks nice
To my little knowledge, a rug is something you use to build a tent (house), in ancient muslim culture.
and, as such is valued dearly….
Beats the rice any day in my book
So they attach rugs instead of boots and cans as in the UK…I wonder what they throw at the newlyweds?Scatter cushions?
No , they usually throw candys mixed with coins (russian rubles ).And little kids pick them up and get to keep them.
I bet they don’t get into their car with dirty boots/shoes :p
Very good looking custom.i would like to use this idea for my marriage.
I like it, too. If they are giving these rugs to the newlyweds to help them get a start, it is a good thing, and helps build a sense of family and community.
Also good for keeping the bird poo off the paint. Ever notice how birds rarely poo on a dirty car?
Take it easy. I thought I was making a valid point. You take me too seriously. I could care less if someone wanted to put wall paper on their car.
(I’m sorry) Zafarad, each time I see one of your postings I have to laugh. You’re “English” is too weird. LOL
Can you speak “traditional Chinese”.
Carol lynn,Ms may be your “English”is far batter than me,but we can`t participate in grammar and language competition.yes i admit,English is not my native language but i am trying to write correct English but i must say, “All your geese are swans”.
Are we still friends?
the masking tape (gaffa tape) adds a nice touch…
They have Mercedes!….
The carpets are a simbol of prosperity of the groom. They by tradition are given to the bride’s familly. This comes form the arabic tradition of payng to the bride’s father to marry his daughter.
Marina, thank you for explaining this custom.
I’ve been to Russia, and to a few places beyond Moscow, but I’m not as familiar as I would like to be with regional customs, geography, etc. That’s one of the reasons I check this site.
So, can anyone tell or guess the region where this ceremony took place?
probably chechnya or ingushetia, there are a few other muslim republics
I grieve with my Russian comrades and offer my heart felt condolences to the friends and families to the victims of this cowardly terror Islamist attack. Ban Islam in Russia now!!!

My deepest condolences to my Russian comrades and friends and family of victims in this cowardly terror attack.

I love the many interesting Russian customs for weddings! We had two weddings one in Eastern Europe and the other in the USA. Guys the Russian wedding was so much fun! The weather may be cold at times but the people are best. Russians have way more fun then Americans!
looks like Armenians
In certain parts of Russia (not just the Russian Federation, but the whole former USSR), owning expensive carpets has long been considered a sign of wealth. Therefore, displaying them (at home–on the walls, or, as in this case, as decoration on the wedding fleet) is a demonstration of beaing well to do (according to their standards).
They suppose to ride on the flying carpet.
You suppose to fly on your carpet.
These wedding carpets are looking very nice and the design is very good. use discount coupons to save money on wedding favors.
