The purpose of this is, with the help of the Almighty, to never to think of going back, because in the end, marriage is exactly that, a person living a new life with their beloved one.”(SOUNDBITE) (Bulgarian) MAYOR OF RIBNOVO, MUSTAFA ISA, SAYING:”Traditional weddings in Ribnovo have always taken place like this. They were revived after the fall of communism and started to flourish. Because during communist times, our music, religious rites, and the costumes that the people in Ribnovo wore were all banned. This was an obstacle for us to live with our ideas and traditions. But for 30 years now, everything has been going well, which is very good.”
