The history of wedding tuples and crews
The history of creating wedding corteges is very rich and very diverse. In the old days, the means of transportation that made up the wedding cortege were determined by the time of the year and, of course, by prosperity.
In winter, the bride rode on a sleigh, wrapped in expensive fur, and in the summer - on a cart. Boyar weddings were a special luxury. The people on horseback were necessarily in gold. The groom drove exclusively on the Argamak. The bride was under the sledge in a sleigh. The sleds were covered with satin material or taffeta, a velvet cushion or a feather made of gilded satin was laid in sledges, and it was absolutely necessary to lay the carpet.
Transport in the city weddings stood out with great sophistication. They were carriages and carriages. The carriage or the carriage of the bride must necessarily differ from the rest. Some picky brides demanded a means of transportation extremely close to the royal carriage: a huge size painted with gold for envy of girlfriends, and that it was beaten inside with white silk cloth.
Harnessed such a carriage at least four, and even six. The horses were chosen only white. They were stationed in a carriage, rigidly following etiquette: only her parents, sisters and girlfriends went with the bride. A significant place was occupied by the boy, who was supposed to keep the image. In the usual carriage went groom, best man and his parents. Only after the wedding, the groom could join the bride and go together in the royal carriage.
