25 thoughts on “Russian Wedding”

  1. He is just trying to be polite and give it to a young bride… What happened to that guy left to the bride? WOW! What a face! I think its not a good picture of a poor wedding from a very deep country! People dont look like this all over Russia! A girl looks fine – I do ope she was happy at that day! But her fresh husband looks terrible – not happy, not dressed well… Probably a marriage-in-need… Who knows!

  2. Explanation – you never hand a knife to another person blade first! This is considered very rude. And to think about it – this rule makes perfect sense, it is very easy to hurt someone when holding the knife blade forward. Pure safety, nothing more. I do the same, not being Russian.

  3. I think this is a regullary wedding which could take place too in Germany, Poland, Sweden or any other country. There are different budgets for a wedding all over the world.

  4. I fantasize that the bride punched the groom before the wedding.

    I think too many Russians are taking offense at this website– they need to relax. As an “American of Russian blood” I know that most of what is shown on this site isn’t the COMPLETE Russia, just a tiny and funny part. If this site were all “GLORIOUS RUSSIAN ACHIEVEMENTS!!” it would be boring state-sponsored propaganda.

    America isn’t perfect, but don’t pretend that Russia somehow is.

  5. My question is – how many westerners actually know what real Russian weddings look like?
    Second question – why not show to the westerners what real Russian weddings look like?
    Talk about “state-sponsored propaganda”, ilyich…
    If you moved to America (just a guess), you just substituted one Soviet Union for a another one.
