The delicacy and fragility of the model in the painting is complemented by the plant ornament, especially the motif of tulip, rose and branches in the colours of clothing typical for the Lower Pohronie region – white and red. In the magical-poverty imagination, red was seen as a protection of the bride from evil influences. The symbol of a tulip in the shape of a cup-shaped flower with three petals was taken from embroidered women’s boots. The archaic, geometric motif of a rosette with a star in the centre is also richly represented in the background of the painting. The wreath is referred to in the village as ‘tornyos koszorú’ which translates as a wreath as tall as a church tower. It consisted of a number of wax buds, flowers, glass beads, nylon flowers and a gathered, white veil reaching to the waist of the bride, which had a significant contribution to the inclusion of this wedding wreath in the project. The wreath in the picture was made in Štúrovo in the 1950s. Wreaths were not borrowed in the village, each bride was provided with a new one. The last wedding where the bride was married in her wedding attire with a wreath on her head took place in the late 1960s. Three original wedding wreaths from the first half of the 20th century have survived in the village.
