Redemption of the bride. Contests and tasks
Wedding is the most important and solemn day inthe life of the newlyweds, and each nation has traditions and customs associated with this day from ancient times. So in Russia, one of the popular customs is the ransom of the bride. Contests, which are prepared by the girlfriends of the future wife, are the most diverse. It is worth remembering that the ransom should not be much delayed, 20-30 minutes is the most optimal option. Here are some original competitions for redemption of the bride.
Competition with a fiance's fiance. When a happy young man comes to the housea fiancé, then another "bridegroom" appears and says that he has come for his bride. Then the girlfriends should volunteer to resolve the question, which of the two is real. Begin to take turns to ask questions to both about the subject of their dispute. Questions need a little - 5-8. An unmarried fiancé must make mistakes in the answers, but each time deftly twist. For example: "How much waist does the bride have?", "75", "wrong, 68", "so I know that 68, just want her to know that I love her very much with any waist size." Or "how much do you know?", "Year", "wrong 3", "of course 3, but time with my beloved flies so fast that I just do not have time to count it." After all the questions, the "fake" groom is ashamed to be removed, and the real continues to buy out the bride, the competitions for him are just beginning.
Variation of the popular test "Find your favorite sponge". Impressions of lips are put not simply on whitesheet, and on the poster of some famous singer or actor. For each incorrectly named variant the groom should pay the ransom (examples of ransoms are written below). The main feature here is that among the prints of the sponges there is no bride. When the future husband becomes clear, the witness comments indignantly: "What kind of nonsense are you doing here? Do not you know that your fiancee could not kiss another man? Pay a ransom, if this is so slow! "
Lovely I recognize by the sizes. It is necessary to cut off the ribbon equal to the growth of the bride, anda few others are longer and shorter, after which the groom is offered to choose the right one, for every wrong answer he must "buy" himself the right to the next attempt. Instead of growing ribbon, you can measure the size of the legs, nose, arms, waist, and so on.
The real reason for marriage. For each step is placed the reason (bycalculation, my mother forced, my friends advised, the devil pissed, lost the cards, etc.) The fact is that they are not all the best. The task of the groom is to go upstairs, but on the step with what reason it will come - that is the true one. The "highlight" of this competition is that the witness (the groom's friend) must guess to lift him upstairs in his arms.
When the bride is redeemed, the competitions shouldto be different, that is, alternating dances, songs, logical thinking, demonstration of strength and dexterity, answers to riddles, so that the ransom would pass interestingly and diversely, and the groom could rest from physical exercises.
Options for the groom for the groom:
Of course, the most common option ismoney, but in order not to ruin the budget of the future family, alternate options for buying back, as such can be used: chocolate, sweets, champagne ... Or, as an option, when girlfriends think about bride price, contests, options for buying, they can prepare several cards- promises of the future husband. And for every mistake in the answers the groom should pull out one of them to choose from. On the cards you can write: "I'll wash the dish for a month," "I'll buy a fur coat in the first year of my life together," "I'll bring coffee to bed two Sundays in a row", "I'll write my favorite poem today," "in the first year of our life together we'll go on vacation together for border "...
The main thing that should be considered: when the bride is redeemed, the contests for the groom must be within his power, and, at the least, so that he can always pay off.
