im curious if this is a local thing or not, asked it on another forum and i got outraged comments about this being a “gringo low class thing and no mexicans would do this”
in a few weddings ive been to , in monterrey and/or coahuila. the bride stays in reception hall, the groom gets carried away by friends and they take his clothes off in the bathroom. then bring it back to the bride and she holds them up and takes pictures with them. then she goes back to him and gives them back. and everyone was mexican (except me) but no one could explain why…
anyone ever heard of this?! or carryign the groom around the hall as if hes dead (eyes closed arms crossed across his chest). and giving him the bumps (but that to me is much more normal haha)
It most likely is a local thing. If other bees are telling you that no Mexicans would do this, it’s maybe because they haven’t seen it happen. But since you have seen it in some weddings, it’s logical that it must be a local thing. You answered your own question.
Its normal for the groom to lose his shoes and socks, but thats it -actually I think there is one of those pics in my wedding recap-. I’ve never seen / been to a wedding where the groom takes off anything else (and I’m mexican, my wedding was in Mexico)
My family is from a central state in Mexico. I’ve been to about 5-15 weddings in mexico in my whole life. This has has been done at every wedding I’ve attended. I don’t really know what the purpose behind it is though.
I’ve heard of this and my DH actually did this to his best friend at his wedding, although they didn’t carry him off the bathroom, they did it in the reception hall. The groomsmen undress the groom and then the bride dresses him back up in the bathroom. It’s all for fun but I also think it depends on the crowd. DH’s best friends mother was furious they did this at her sons wedding. I guess it just depends on people’s preferance.
It all depends on where the groom is from, where i’m from they have at some point almost gotten the groom naked. Or they play a “mandilon” song which is the wife is the boss and they dance with an apron and broom..Don’t listen to comments like that…HOpe it helps
