ok, so who is supposed to put the lazo on us? Originally mr. chitown’s aunt and uncle were going to do it-but now it doesn’t look like they will be coming to the wedding so FMIL said she and FFIL would do it….my mom thinks that’s a no-no…any thoughts???

I believe it would be the Godparents. In Latino culture, there seems to be Godparents for almost all of the important events within a young lady’s life. As such, the lasso, is typically placed around the bride and groom by the Godparents…

Typically in the Latino culture it’s the god parents. We don’t have god parents, he’s not Latino or Catholic, so I chose to have a married couple do this for us…his sister and brother in law. I’ve seen in laws do it as well. I think you can bend the rules.

oh I know about the godparents-thats what his aunt and uncle were going to be godparents of. But now they are not coming and my FMIL said her and FFIL would just do it like not a big deal. My mom thought that it should be a different couple-not the parents of the groom…thanks though!

My parents are putting ours on because we are not having padrinos. And it’s really special to me if they were to put it on us. 🙂

I’m not havig a Lazo at my wedding even though we were both raised Catholic. I don’t really know what the “rules” are, but if it is something like the Unity Candle, why not have both moms do it?
just a thought…

- Wedding: October 2009 - Church Ceremony/Reception at The Waterford House
Padrions & Madrinas (Godfathers & Godmothers), but I’ve also heard of parents doing it. Since we only had two godparents to participate and three parts of our ceremnoy, we just had another aunt and uncle, that are very special to Mr. Beagle, participate. When it comes down to it, I think they just need to be people that are important to you.

I’m having a couple who have been like and aunt and uncle to me all my life. They’re latinos so they know the significance of it. I know it’s typically the Godparents, but you can choose any adults who mean something to your life. Who have been there to support you through good and bad and who will be there to support you throughout your marriage. I would however, make sure that they are from the latino culture so they know and understand the importance and honor being padrinos is.

Maid of honor and best man are also common since technically they are considered “padrinos de honor.” We are contemplating on having both of our parents do it, his parents on his side, and my parents on my side, but we’re not too sure yet. And if not may go with our MOH and BM.

We are having my aunt and uncle who recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary be our padrinos. I feel they’re a great role models for us to follow, and they will bless our marriage to be as happy and everlasting as theirs. They are so cute together.
It should be a married a couple who you look up to and will unite you two.

My understanding is that it has to be a married couple; this couple must have a strong marriage!
