These include the otsitki, where the few is presented with salt and a round whitened wheat bread. A piece of bread is supposed to be broken off, seasoned with water, and eaten by the pair. The more the bread is broken, the better, because this indicates a much and content marriage. They are subsequently supposed to crush the remainder. The newlyweds also receive a blanket that they must step on as they leave the festival house. This is meant to be the first action into their upcoming house.

The newlyweds are pampered by the family’s ( starosty ) on a rushnyk-style embroidered cloth. A short while before the formal ceremony, this happens. If the relatives are feeling dramatic, they might also attempt to deceive the Bride into paying a fine by bringing out an impersonator.

On the day of the bridal( Saturday or sunday ), the house would get prepared. Flowers and food were picked, food was prepared, and cooking began, typically making korovai, a special ritual bread made of dough and decorated with birds, flowers, and animals. It was customarily made by women who were regarded as having sure traits, including that they were not wives, had happy babies, and were wealthy.
