The bride’s friends kidnap either her or her shoe and the groom and his friends must pay a real or symbolic price for the stolen maiden during the wedding.
Wedding master of ceremonies Sergei Sokolov recalls a particular event: “When, the visitors chose to take the bride but didn’t state exactly exactly how she could possibly be purchased straight right back. We stated: ‘Ok, therefore now the bride is taken, but exactly how are we going to purchase her straight back?’ The visitors said: ‘Have the groom beverage eight shots of vodka.’ But we just arranged a party battle. if he had been to take in eight shots of vodka, he’d be just like gone too… in the long run,”
