As rule says that colour of brides dress has to be white only on death in family occasion she was wearing a black dress. “Venčok” is composed of tiny wax flowers mostly in shape of roses and white sprouts joined with rosemary. Brides used to give it to another bride in family on another wedding occasion. Hairstyle of young bride has its base in thick pigtail added up with two white ribbons.
