How Is the Traditional Chechen Wedding Celebrated in Grozny

Traditional Chechen weddings are very special events and are celebrated for three days, but they have their own features that may seem rather strange to us. This post will tell us about all the features of traditional weddings in Chechnya.

The bride, with her friends in her bedroom, waits for the groom’s relatives, who should pick her up.

Friends of the bride, who wears a traditional Chechen dress, make sure that she looks perfect.

In Chechnya, the girls are usually about 17-18 years old when they are married, and the groom, who traditionally pays for the wedding, is a little over 20.

The bride stands there, where she will be until the end of the ceremony. Throughout the day, she will be presented to the new family. She must remain standing, and can sit down only when she is given permission to do so.

Relatives of the future husband escorted the bride to the place where the wedding ceremony is held.

The groom can’t get close to the bride.

Traditionally, no one in the bride’s family can attend the wedding.

At the wedding ceremony, guests ask the bride to bring them a glass of water. Guests and relatives joke, talk to each other and discuss the appearance of the bride.

The bride must remain silent because talkativeness is a sign of immodesty. She can offer guests a glass of water and wish them health.
