Mexican Latino Wedding Traditions

Mexico Mexican Latino Weddings
By: Wedding Connections

Before the ceremony, the bride and groom are blessed at home by their parents.

Spanish influence is wide-spread in Mexican-Latin culture and Mexico-Latin-Philippino also use these customs.

Starting with a "Traditional Catholic Wedding Mass" - The Lasso (lazo) and the 13 gold coins (arras) are originally a Spanish custom. The groom presents to his bride thirteen gold coins as his promise to support here. The arras, a small chest of coins symbolizing wealth and strength, is blessed during their ceremony.

The wedding cakes are small, round pastries made of almonds, flour and butter. They are wrapped in colored tissue paper and given to each guest as a wedding favor to bring home.

Pinata - good entertainment for the children

For the first dance, guests form a circle around the bride and groom

Mariachis are a MUST! Please don't forget the dollar dance.

The Padrinos, or godparents, also are honoured by being part of the wedding.
