Wedding Presenter and Toastmaster
It is difficult to imagine the Wedding Banquet without the toastmaster. Toastmasters are invited to a wedding not to turn into a banal meal "drink - a snack" and to this day memorable for the newlyweds and all guests. In Russia up to 90 years in the role of toastmaster speaking any of the guests or relatives. The will of fate, this role is often dropped out to me. As the "Witnesses" and voluntary "Toastmasters" I spent all of my friends wedding. Now this problem is solved by the people for whom holding weddings and other celebrations is a profession. Has not escaped this fate and I - something had to learn that something has come with experience. As toastmaster should not just keep the wedding painted on the script, but have a subtle psychologist, to feel when it's time to say a toast, and when to have fun contest ensure that no guest is not sad at the table. Although to be honest, I still believe that toaster - it's not a profession but a vocation.
Wedding - an event where one table is not just going to different people, but different generations. It is very important to set the tone of communication, combine the guests by the groom and bride, young people and older people so that all guests feel at ease and relaxed, and the holiday for many years remained in the memory of all those invited, not just on the video and wedding photos...
So, I spend weddings (mainly wedding banquets), that is, speaking in Russian I'm "Tamada". Тhe Russian word "Tamada" means more than the english word "toastmaster". "Tamada" - this is leading to the wedding, and toastmaster, and the organizer of the traditional wedding ceremonies, as well as entertaining quizzes, contests and dances.
As toastmaster, I must know all the modern Russian (and not only) wedding traditions and ceremonies.
I can see how they change over time - there are new traditions
and some rites taking new forms.
Perhaps many will be interested to know about it, so to speak "first-hand".
If so, this page will be the beginning of the project
"Russian wedding traditions and rituals: the modern and ancient" (aka - a mirror of the modern tradition:
"toastmaster" should have its own page on the Internet. :)
It would be interesting and important to know your opinion about this, dear readers. (You can speak at the Forum)
Since English is not my native language, then I'll never be a classical English writer (though as Russian, too). :)
