Latina Marriage Beliefs

There are so many inventive ways to honor your Latinx heritage on your big day, from a wimple shroud to a papel picado-covered sky. You can also demonstrate your adore for your tradition with your food and beverages, as well as delicate particulars like curved fabric and ruffle, but it’s not just about adding in conventional elements. Here, bride managers share how they helped lovers respect their traditions with their menus, audio, and decoration.

The lazo and somme festival, which involves wrapping a cord or rope around a woman’s hips to show cohesion, is a well-known mexican ceremony custom. Any string or thread can be used, but Catholic Latinx faiths value this more. During the ceremony, the groom and wedding does change jewels, pledges, and gifts. The padrinos—the bride’s and groom’s godparents—will therefore link the rope, representing their assistance for the partners throughout their marriage.

A recurring theme in Latina wedding traditions is la padrinos—godparents who provide instruction for the bride and groom before, during, and after the bride. 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 at the reception where guests deposit money on the bride and groom for a chance to dance with them. The dance can last for up to five songs, depending on how many people are pinned.
