  1. 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

    • 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

    Thanks.

  7. 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!

  8. 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).

  9. These wedding carpets are looking very nice and the design is very good. use discount coupons to save money on wedding favors.
