In all cultures, weddings are very important, mixing religious beliefs and tradition. Every country has thier own way to celebrate. Mexico, as a multicultural country also has very different ways to celebrate a wedding. Usually, as in many cultures, the bridge is dressed in white, and also there is a dance /usually with a banda playing a vals) where the couple dance alone, later with thier parents, and then with thier in laws.
Guadalajara also adds a particular characteristic to the weddings, the use of a marichi in the party.

Two of my former students. Acording to Wikipedia, "People in Mexico is made of Mestizos (those of European and Amerindian ancestry) form the largest group, making up to 60%–75% of the total population. The percentage of Amerindians, called indigenous peoples (indígenas) in Mexico, is estimated to be between 12% (pure Amerindian) or 30% (predominantly Amerindian). Ethnic Europeans make up 9% and 15% of the population, mostly descendants of the first Spanish settlers, although many have German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Irish, Polish, Romanian, Russian and British ancestry; many are found in major cities after the waves of immigration that brought many Europeans at the end of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, along with some Canadians and Euro-Americans from the United States."
The girl in the left is of Italian ancestry, but here it does not matters where your parents were born. Mexico is ethnically diverse, and the constitution defines the country to be a "pluricultural nation". According to law all we aere mexicans, despite our origin, and people consire themselves mexicans.

All mexican haciendas had a chaptel or a church, this is not the exception. This is a detail from the Ex-Hacienda Santa Lucia, close to Guadalajara. The place now is used for weddings, both, the ceremony and the party.

This bike is parked in the window of a stair. That nite Liz and I were walking in the street and she saw the bike, it was a good idea to have a shot of it. The owner arrived and look at us with an unfriendly face, so we just walk away.
