In Central Asia, a bride kazakhstani women is a major occurrence that reflects the area’s wandering history. Although some customs were outlawed during the 60 to 70 years of Soviet/russian principle, relationship continues to be a considerable affair. This is generally because of the fact that the families in this region are typically big, and each has its own special practices.

In the past, a couple do spend time with their families before arranging their wedding. The ceremony was typically held in fall or late summertime, when the climate is cooler and affordable food is available. The princess’s home would create a great feast and her female cousins would supply her gifts. In many regions the groom’s home may pay a bride to the couple’s community, which could include horses, cattle, money, needlework or clothing.

The potential man and his male relatives would then kidnap the woman ( in the old nomadic days, by horseback, today, by automobile). He may therefore get her to the home of his parents or his home. His parents and elder relatives may try to persuade the bride to put on a white shawl that signified her endorsement of the union, or danger pain and even death. This practise, known as ala kachuu, was outlawed during the Soviet era, but it appears to be making a return.

On the day of the wedding, the lady would be sent with her dowry wagon to the groom’s home. She would been expected to walk it outdoors, and on the way she was supposed to be showered with chocolates and currencies. She also had to sing goodnight songs before she left her familial apartment, such as the popular Kyrgyz melody Koshtasi Zhari.
