Blessing young — extraordinary rite
Wedding ceremony is the most beautiful rite, which exists in all peoples of the world. The process involves a wide variety of traditions and customs. But one of the main points is the blessing of the young. Without him there is no wedding celebration. Therefore, this practice will be considered in more detail.
Bless young parents, both the bride and groom. In the old days were not allowed to get married, if the future spouses have not passed the rite of the so-called purification of the soul. In the modern world, of course, everything is much easier. Young will no longer feel guilty for their actions to parents, if the blessing is still not received. Despite the fact that the custom is more formal, the couple still trying to get the blessing of their parents. Then the atmosphere becomes more pleasant, and the young couple feel more confident, bolder, go further in life.
The blessing of young parents today is divided in an Orthodox ceremony and modern. In other words, if the bride and groom don't want a too serious approach to this issue, the procedure can be greatly simplified. So, if you follow tradition, which came from a distant antiquity, it is necessary to acquire the icons for the bride and groom. Prerequisite: all participants must be members. In that case, if someone has not been baptized, this can be done immediately before the wedding. Blessing young first takes place at the bride's home, and then, after the Registrar, to the groom's house.
At the first ceremony the future spouses put on the towel, and the young have to kneel down, then the parents of the bride recite the required speech and cross-referencing the young icons. Blessing of young parents of the groom is as follows: the spouses are put on the so-called "carpet-being", the mother and father speak words of encouragement.
But the modern ritual can take place without icons, "carpet" and the handbrake. Parents of the bride and groom enough to say kind and warm words of encouragement for their children. If such variant suits the young and they will continue to feel confident in themselves, the ritual is appropriate.After blessing the young received, everyone involved in the wedding ceremony, continue the Banquet, speaking your words of congratulations to the couple, having fun and dancing. But the ritual involves another little tradition: the parents of the bride and groom must convey their home to the young. This happens in the following way: mothers should light candles, which are flying across the room, disseminating new lights. The last candle lit on the table of the bride and groom. Or the parents on both sides are lit one candle, which stand the fire on the candle in the hands of the young. Thus, the new family should be even warmer and happier, and love will increase several times.
Of course, rites today very much, and which one to choose, everyone decides for himself. The blessing of the young should not be imposed, and to proceed from a pure heart and sincere desire.
