The meaning behind the “ring finger”

The term ring finger goes back to ancient times, when it was thought that a vein ran directly from the fourth finger (known as the ring finger) on the left hand to the heart. Eventually, they called that vein the “vena amoris,” or vein of love. Although modern science demystifies this belief, bride and groom still proudly place the ring on this special finger of their beloved one to declare their eternal love for each other. Depending on the religion, wedding rings are worn on the left or right hand. In Ukraine, where the dominant religion is Orthodox Christianity, people wear rings on the fourth finger of the right hand.

Did You Know?

Why do Ukrainians shout «Гірко!» (Bitter!) at weddings?

This is probably one of the most interesting Ukrainian wedding traditions: guests shout “Bitter!” to prompt the newlyweds to kiss. According to one version, it refers to the bitter taste of vodka, with which you are expected to drink to the health of the young couple. In turn, after crying “Bitter!” the newlyweds should sweeten this bitterness with their kiss.

Pumpkin and its practical use in matchmaking

In Ukrainian wedding traditions, the pumpkin is widely associated with a woman’s refusal of a man and often is mentioned in jokes. If, during a matchmaking process, the girl didn’t like the man, she “gave pumpkin” to the matchmaker, signifying her refusal to marry him. Probably because of the numerous vitamins and health benefits of pumpkin, it was believed it would help the man recover from his disappointment. So such an elegant refusal could be thought of as wise and considerate.

Perfect Place

The creators of Perfect Place weren’t exaggerating when they chose that name. Perfect Place is an alluring park area on the shore of Kiev’s Venetian island, also known as Hydropark, with an amazing view of the right bank and its Kyiv Hills, Kiev Pechersk Lavra, and the Motherland Monument. It’s a perfect choice for a wedding ceremony, offering a base for realizing all your dreams and hopes for your truly memorable day. A large tent for hosting up to 300 guests and basic equipment is already at your disposal, but you’re free to imagine all the additional elements you want for a chic ceremony.
