Mexican Wedding Traditions

In Mexico, a traditional couple getting married is sponsored, financially, by their Godparents, to act as ‘padrinos’, or sponsors of the wedding. They are mentors to the bride and groom throughout their engagement, and even after they are married. Needless to say, the bride and groom honor them with a place in the wedding program. The padrinos may present the couple with a rosary and a Bible during their wedding ceremony. They are mentors to the bride and groom throughout their engagement, and even after they are married.

Mexican Wedding Ceremony

TraditionsDuring the marriage vows, a white ribbon or rosary, called a “lasso”, is symbolically wrapped around the necks of the couple, which represents their joining. It is customary for a Mexican groom to give his wife a wedding present of thirteen gold coins, which are then blessed by the priest during the marriage ceremony. This gesture represents the groom’s commitment to support his new wife. As the newlyweds leave the church, red beads may be tossed at them, to bring good luck. At the wedding reception, all the guests will join hands and form a heart shape around the newly married couple as they have their first dance.

Wedding Receptions in Mexico

At a traditional Mexican reception, it is customary for the guests to form a heart around the newlyweds, as they begin their first dance as husband and wife. A paper mache container known as a pinata is suspended from the ceiling at Mexican wedding receptions. It will be shaped like a heart or an animal. Filled with candy, it is hung by a string and swatted at by children. When it breaks, the candy falls out and is shared among the guests. The Mexican wedding cake is traditionally a fruitcake that has been soaked in rum.
