Northern Asian Bridal Traditions

In Central Asia, a ceremony is a major event that reflects the area's wandering history. Although some traditions were outlawed during the 60 to 70 generations of Soviet/russian theory, marriage continues to be a large encounter. This is largely because of the fact that the people in this region are generally big, and each has its own unique beliefs.

In the past, a pair may spend time with their families before arranging their relationship. The wedding was usually held in autumn or late summer, when the climate is cooler and inexpensive food is available. The princess's family had plan a huge dinner and her female cousins would grant her gifts. In some regions the groom's home do pay a dowry to the bride's family, which could include horses, cattle, money, embroidery or clothing.

The potential man and his male family would then abduct the woman ( in the old nomadic weeks, by horses, now, by auto). He did finally taking her to the household of his parents or his community. His parents and elder relatives may try to persuade the bride to put on a light jacket that signified her endorsement of the marriage, or danger pain and even death. This practise, known as ala kachuu, was outlawed during the Communist era, but it appears to be making a return turkmenistan bride.

On the day of the wedding, the woman would be sent with her marriage wagon to the couple's property. She would been expected to walk it outdoors, and on the manner she was supposed to be showered with pastries and coins. She also had to perform farewell music before she left her filial residence, such as the well-known Kyrgyz melody Koshtasi Zhari.
