Unveiling ceremony
In this charming ceremony named oczepiny, the mother takes the bride's veil off to signify her entering womanhood and places it on the maid of honor, who then waltzes with the best man. The maid of honor then places it on the next bridesmaid, who dances with the next groomsman in line. The passing of the veil symbolizes the bride offering her maids good fortune to marry in the future.
