Latina Bridal Practices

There are so many inventive ways to honor your Latinx history on your big moment, from a mantilla mask to a papel picado-covered sky. You can also demonstrate your passion for your lifestyle with your food and beverages, as well as subtle information like fluted ribbons, but it’s not just about including classic elements. Around, ceremony organizers share how they helped spouses respect their heritage with their menu, tunes, and design.

The lazo and reims ceremony, which involves wrapping a wire or rope around a couple’s arms to show unity, is a well-known Latina bride custom. Any series or ribbon can be used, but Catholic Latinx civilizations value this in particular. During the meeting, the wedding and bride does swap bands, pledges, and riches. The padrinos—the couple’s and groom’s godparents—will next link the bola, representing their support for the few throughout their relationship.

A recurring concept in Spanish bride traditions is new padrinos—godparents who provide assistance for the bride and groom before, during, and after the wedding. Hispanic brides and grooms had their own personal padrinos and/or madrinas as part of the bridal party, but they did n’t traditionally have a maid of honor or best man.

A fun Hispanic wedding custom is a money dance during the reception where guests deposit money on the bride and groom for a chance to dance with them. Up to five songs can be pinned during the dance, depending on how much is pinned!
