We state “special” because contemporary Ukrainian wedding positively don’t look like ours. Often from the contemporary Ukrainian wedding groom and bride are putting on exactly the same like in most the entire world, it is white gown and bridal veil for bride and black colored costume with white shirt for groom. But Ronnie and I also made a decision to have a marriage in Ukrainian folk design also to have costumes like our parents and grand-parents had. Additionally inside our wedding invites we noticed about desirable dress-code for all your visitors, it had been old-fashioned wear that is ukrainian components of such wear. Well, well, well! When we knew what’s going to happened next! And took place such thing that numerous our visitors had been dressed a lot more gorgeous than groom and bride! We also had been joking into the Ron, “Are you truly certain that is your bride, evaluating these stunning girl and girls? ”. But talking after all, it had been REALLY pleasant to us to see a whole lot therefore good and bright individuals on our wedding. Also it ended up being some secret code and good indication for people, that almost everybody regarding the our wedding ended up being putting on in old-fashioned Ukrainian clothing. Because embroidered Ukrainian shirt for Ukrainians it really is a lot more than wear. It is sign of unity with all the current nation, and expression of Ukrainian soul, like Ukrainian language and Ukrainian track. Oh, it had been so excited to choice a marriage costumes for all of us! I happened to be shopping for the use for Ronnie and for me personally regarding the all Ukrainian souvenir markets of Lviv and Ternopil, and lastly I have discovered it! I purchased nearly all elements when it comes to our costumes in the Vernisazh Souvenir marketplace in Lviv. Specially i will be proud of my embroidered long top. Whenever my friend, ethnographer Mila Strotsen looked over this shirt, she stated, it had been made about 80 years back. We unearthed that shirt do not have any device stitch! All of the manual work! The textile for shirt is from flax, and embroidery threads are woolen. They didn’t loss a сolor also through 80 years! Also we forgot to state that my shirt produced in the Kitsman town (Bukovyna area). This area situated on the south from Ternopil state.
