Wedding «a train»
The site www.articlewedding.com advises you to forget about luxury cayenne, brutal SUVs, «tax-like» limousines.

Such a national crew, one hundred percent, will give odds to any, even the most expensive and trendy car.

Of course, the ideal place for such a themed wedding is the Russian field! Interpretations in the spirit of a forest edge, ennobled terrain on a river, a country estate are permissible. You can pick up a cafe for the wedding, but it is always stylized as a peasant's hut, well, or as a boyar’s tower.

Speaking of bast shoes and pots. The wedding portal www.articlewedding.com thinks this is a great idea for a seating card.
