In the next step, the bride and groom have an optional traditional ceremony in a church. The wedding ceremony takes place in a church and is divided into two parts: the Betrothal and the Crowning.The service traditionally takes place in the morning, after the celebration of the Divine Liturgy, during which the wedding rings were blessed by being placed on the Holy Table (altar).The best man and maid of honor are called witnesses, svideteli in Russian.The ceremony and the ring exchange takes place on the first day of the wedding.As in many cultures, during the reception, friends of the groom would sneak away to play tricks on the couple such as walling-in the door of the couple’s new home or putting itching powder on the bed.

In the Eastern Orthodox Church Holy Matrimony is considered a Sacred Mystery (sacrament), and the sign of the marriage is not the exchange of rings (that takes place at the betrothal) but rather the placing of crowns on the heads of the bride and groom.The groom should probably bring a cheap tie for this event.One of the oldest traditions is the giving of candy-coated Jordan almonds.During the proposal, a groom will typically serenade her first and then present her with a diamond ring because of the belief that a diamond was created by the flames of love.Sunday weddings are the luckiest and if a bride wears green the night before the wedding, it will bring luck and abundance to the couple.
