Mexican Wedding Vows and Customs
Hey everyone! I'm trying to learn about Mexican wedding customs and vows because I am marrying the love of life(who just happens to be Mexican!) I either want to learn how to say my vows in Spanish, or learn some traditional Spanish vows. I dont know how much their vows resemble ours, but either way i think it would be a nice surprise if i could learn.
I would say it sort of depends on what type of wedding you're having: a traditional catholic, a not-so traditional catholic, an open christian... etc, etc.
I found this link with some other ideas, this time in Spanish.
Congratulations, I wish you both all the happiness in the world. I hope you find somthing here to help you.
I'd say that the "The Thirteen Gold Coins (Trece monedas de oro)" is definently a big tradition amongst Mexican families (the traditional ones). You can find out more about the tradition in Robertico's link.
HI mamabeth, good news, congratulations
I am sure Roberto has already given you a good link, I am from Spain, the vows might differ.
I too am marrying a mexican. I have been looking for some type of book that has all the vows, meanings, and everything else that is involved in the traditional wedding. I don't speak spanish, so we will be doing the vows in english, but we still need to know all the stuff! If anyone knows where I can find a book it would be greatly appreciated. Congrats and good luck with your wedding!!
I once saw a wedding somewhere in southern Mexico. The two lovers stood in the middle of a shallow river and had a chicken thrown over their heads.....it was....interesting
Hmm... This is not my area of speciality, but Roberto's link is pretty informative.
Congratulations by the way, I wish you both the best of luck!
