Summary/Abstract: This paper deals with the weddings in smalltown. Those weddings are likely to urban weddings in general by being formed as the complexuality of the traditional elements, foreign affections and amplifying presence of the secular rituals and the Orthоdox ones. The presence of the tradition as well as the acceptance of the new and of the foreign elements are observable in these weddings unlike those in some larger cities. The way of how crisis and pauperisation affects the nowdays marriaging and the image of the contemporary wedding is to be considered with the special accent.
