There are so many creative ways to honor your Latinx lineage on your big day, from a wimple veil to a papel picado-covered ceiling. You can also demonstrate your love for your culture with your food and beverages, as well as gentle specifics like scalloped lace and skirts, but it’s not just about adding in conventional elements. These, bride managers share how they helped people recognize their history with their list, songs, and furnishings.

The lazo and arras ceremony, which involves wrapping a wire or rope around a couple’s arms to show unification, is a well-liked Latina bride custom. Any series or string can be used, but Catholic Latinx civilizations value this more. During the meeting, the groom and wife did transfer jewels, commitments, and riches. The padrinos—the bride’s and couple’s godparents—will finally link the lasso, representing their support for the pair throughout their union.

A recurring concept in Latina bride customs is new padrinos—godparents who provide advice 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 traditionally they did n’t 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!
