The Pomak weddings of Ribnovo
Situated in the western Rhodope mountains about 30 km from Gotse Delchev, the village's 3,000 inhabitants are ‘Pomaks’.
The festivities last for 5 days, and include much singing and dancing in the village square. On the second day the bride's face is painted white, and decorated with sequins.
During the ceremony the bride's trousseau is displayed on wooden racks in front of her home.
