Buklija (čutura)

.
First thing that you will notice at Serbian-Orthodox weddings is the Buklia.

It is a round, decorated, wooden bottle, filled with homemade brandy (rakija). It has a strap and can be carried around like a purse.
This is the only purse-like object that men will not resist to have.

In modern day, cousins and uncles welcome the guests with the buklia, while in the past it was used as a formal invitation to weddings. It used to be that a family member would visit the invitees home with the buklia in order to give a personal invitation. At each wedding, there is always that one uncle, that if you happen to make eye contact with him, he will not let you go until you take a sip out of his fancy bottle.
