The wedding of the Mari peoples is quite a long event, which consists of three stages. But the most vivid moments of the rituals were presented at the RUSSIA EXPO by the ensemble "Morko kundem" from the Republic of Mari El.

In total, there are three key stages in the Mari wedding cycle. The first lasts from the viewing to the wedding ceremony, the second is the wedding itself, and the third - the post-wedding stage - is the newlyweds' entry into family life.

At the exposition, the artists showed how the bride is prepared. They put on the most beautiful clothes and jewelry, sing folk songs, and perform traditional wedding dances with stomping and shouting.

The visitors also saw how the groom was welcomed to the bride's house with bread and salt. There was also a mock competition between the bride and groom for the fastest eating of bread. The roles of the bride and groom were performed by folk dancers Andrei and Natalia Dmitrievs. In life, the artists are already a married couple.

"I myself am from Voronezh. I met my future husband while working in Kazan, and then he brought me to the Republic of Mari El", - said Natalia Dmitrieva.
