Today I present Tanya (Tatayana) Poyko who is broadcasting for an event held multiple places around the Eastern world known as the Parade of Brides. Women put on makeup and dress as if they are going to their weddings, then parade around the city to advertise their support or willingness for marriage. There is often a sponsor, competitions and prizes, but not like you might see at a similar event here in the west.
If you can get past the hat she wears (it’s making me jealous), you can see from the other participants that a lot of work went into making this event. Aside from the effort on the part of the ladies to do their hair and makeup, you can see that there are many themed outfits complete with accessories. As someone who had been a part of the bridal industry for several years, I can also add that these ladies show more shoulder (and do it better) than many of the (western) women I’ve seen. There’s even some pretty daring cleavage sneaking in at 1:08.
Most importantly, it stresses that Eastern European women think very much about being married. Many consider it a fantasy that they entertain, and dressing up like this will be something like us putting on a superhero costume for Halloween. To maintain a willingness to hope for marriage despite the odds says much about their character.
Worldly Wednesday is possibly a semi-regular feature of WesternWomenSuck.com featuring information regarding the culture of Eastern Europeans. If you have anything to add or feel that this post contains errors, please submit corrections in postings below and I will be happy to review them.
