There are so many inventive ways to honor your Latinx heritage on your big moment, from a chosen veil to a papel picado-covered roof. You can also demonstrate your passion for your culture with your food and beverages, as well as refined information like curved lace, but it’s not just about adding in standard elements. Here, bridal managers share how they helped couples recognize their lineage with their restaurant, songs, and decoration.

The lazo and reims meeting, which involves wrapping a wire or rope around a woman’s hips to show unity, is a well-known mexican marriage custom. Any wire or thread can be used, but Catholic Latinx cultures value this more. During the meeting, the wedding and wife does exchange jewels, vows, and riches. The padrinos—the bride’s and groom’s godparents—will therefore weave the lasso, representing their help for the pair throughout their wedding.

A recurring theme in Latina ceremony practices is los padrinos—godparents who provide direction for the bride and groom before, during, and after the ceremony. 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 one.

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.
