Many Slovak marriage customs perhaps seemed foreigners unfamiliar, but Slovaks truly do cherish them. The ceremony should look beautiful, and if something does n’t look good on camera, they are n’t afraid to retake it. This is what matters most to them. Ethnologist Zuzana Jakubikova told The Slovak Spectator,” It’s like filming: if a scene does n’t turn out well, you just film it again.”

In a past festival known as pytacky, brides used to go to the bride’s parents to ask for her hand in marriage. However, the groom would have to carry out a number of jobs to demonstrate his devotion to her if her families objected. Running a labyrinth, dancing with the entire township, and giving presents to her parents were some examples of this.

The” savojka” ceremony, where the princess’s family gather to plait her hair, is another custom. This is a pretty heartfelt slovakian brides instant as she prepares for her new career. The partners does then consume the equal plate and knife of soup, indicating that they will continue to share everything.

Slovak brides were usually required to see a logs as well. People who needed timber for cooking and heating were taught how to use a see because this tradition had functional origins. It’s a much more metaphoric work today, but it still helps them work together and grow in trust.
