Summary/Abstract: The work is devoted to the traditional Bulgarian wedding seen in categories of the rite de passage. As for the very rite, it is approached in the study as a text of “culture” made up by elements belonging to different semiotic languages. By taking advantage of the fact that the activities undertaken upon enacting the said rite combine some elements of its personal code (subject and/or object), temporal and spatial code (the placement in time and space), object code (utilising rite-related propts) as well as verbal and musical codes (if the rite is accompanied by words uttered and music), while eliciting source material the emphasis was put on the wedding’s action code. The ethnolinguistic analysis which is based in ethnographic and linguistic data (folklore texts, terminology, phraseology, proverbs) is also conducive to unveiling symbolic senses brought about by certain actions and functions performer by them in the rite’s semantic plane.
