Ethnic: Ukraine

Ukrainian Wedding:

Toward the start of the wedding recpetion the mother of the bride removes the veil from the bride and places on her head a "wife's hat."

Today, the "wife's hat" is an ordinary woman's hat but formerly it was supposed to be a hat similar to the hat worn by frontier women. The hat is very plain and relatively ugly when compared to a veil. It is supposed to signify the hard work the wife must go through to satisfy her husband.
