Mexican Wedding



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.

I once attended a wedding in Mexico, and it was beautiful, especially the mariachis in their elaborately decorated suits and sombreros. Very, very romantic.
