Latina Bridal Traditions

There are so many inventive ways to honor your Latinx identity on your big day, from a mantilla veil to a papel picado-covered roof. You can also demonstrate your passion for your traditions with your food and beverages, as well as simple details like scalloped ribbons, but it’s not just about including classic elements. Below, marriage managers share how they helped couples recognition their history with their list, tunes, and decor.

The lazo and somme meeting, which involves wrapping a cord or rope around a child’s shoulders to show unity, is a well-known Latina bride custom. Any wire or ribbon can be used, but Catholic Latinx nations value this in particular. During the meeting, the groom and wife did trade bracelets, pledges, and blessings. The padrinos—the bride’s and groom’s godparents—will finally tie the bola, representing their help for the partners throughout their wedding.

A recurring concept in Spanish marriage traditions is los padrinos—godparents who provide direction 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 one.

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. The dance can last for up to five songs, depending on how much music is pinned.
