"The Wedding Rug"
The Wedding Rug is a tradition from the villages of the Carpathian Mountains in the Ukraine. Wedding rugs are usually about 6 feet long by 1 foot wide and made of white cloth with embroidered designs at both ends. The Bride and Groom stand on the middle solid white section during the marriage ceremony in the church. The rugs are made in many different color combinations and with a variety of designs. Flowers, wedding rings, wheat and birds are common themes. The most popular color combination is red and black on white fabric although pastels and bright multi-color combinations are also widely used. Most of the rugs have a message of luck embroidered into the white fabric. Symbolically the rug wishes wealth and prosperity for the couple so that they never need to face poverty standing on a bare earthen floor. After the ceremony, the wedding rug would be displayed in the newlyweds' new home.
When using props for your wedding be sure to have a detailed list of all the props being used, who is to bring and take them away, and when they are to be used in the service. This applies to almost everything you will need like the rings and ring pillow, unity candles, carpet runners (or wedding rugs), etc. You will want to make copies of said list to be given to the marriage officiant, the people caring for the items before and after the service and to your coordinator (even if it's your mother). A list of all sentimental and cultural props should also be given to whomever is preparing your wedding program so they know to include information of cultural significance or the fact you are using your grandmother's ring pillow. The last thing you need on your wedding day is the stress of trying to find these important items at the church or the worry of losing them. Planning is the key to being able to blissfully sail through the service without a hitch.
Many couples start their first dance on the floor. This tends to add
to the awkwardness of the moment. You will almost always have to wait
at least 10 or 15 seconds for the music to start. Even from a professional's
viewpoint, standing still with 200 eyes watching you can be nerve-wracking
if you are doing nothing. When the music finally starts couples tend
to begin dancing with a jerky start. We have all of our grooms lead
their brides out onto the floor as the music starts,
take dance hold and then start dancing. It is simple and elegant, shows
off the bride more and leads to a sense of anticipation on the part
of the guests. Additionally it is often hard for the groom to hear the
beat and be on time during the musical introduction of a piece of music,
which often tends to be different rhythmically from the rest of the
song. Having him escort you onto the dance floor not only adds a touch
of confident regal ambiance to the moment but also makes his life easier!
