This is the traditional wedding costume from Macedonia. This costume is wear by the girl on his wedding. The costume weighs 12 kg, sometimes more, depends of the gold which receives the bride from the parents and his husband. The bride is adorned with gold jewelery or with silver if the family is poor.The Galičnik Wedding Festival (Macedonian: Галичка свадба) is an annual festival held in the Macedonian village of Galičnik near the city of Debar in which a selected couple gets married in the traditional "Galička" style wedding. Traditionally the wedding lasted for 5 days with the main activities on St. Peter's Day (12 July) every year. It was the only period of the year when couples got married. Today it is part of the festival "Galičko Leto" (Galičnik Summer) and it is a two-day event held on the weekend nearest to 12 July and it serves as a cultural and tourist attraction.

During the wedding, men dance Teškoto, symbolizing the suffering of the Macedonian people through the centuries.[1]

Each year, couples from all over Macedonia enter a competition run by the organisers to be the couple that gets to have a "Galička" style wedding. Every year, a new couple gets the opportunity.
