- Wedding: August 2013
Groom’s side is Mexican, Bride’s side is Caucasian. Since I’ve never been to a Mexican wedding before (or to many weddings at all, for that matter), I want to make sure this sounds okay!
1:00 PM Ceremony at the church
1:45 Ceremony ends, family pictures taken at the church
2:00 Reception site opens. DJ plays, salsa and chips on tables
2:10 Bride and Groom go to closeby locations for their photos
2:55 Bride and Groom arrive at reception site
3:00 Blessing, lunch/dinner buffet line opens (lots of good Mexican food)
3:40 First dance
3:45 Slow dance with parents
3:50 Slow dance with “padrinos” aka people who helped pay for the wedding
4:00 Slow dance with any family and fiends who wish to.
4:10 “La Vibora”
4:30 Regular dancing (5 songs Spanish, 2 English. Repeat, etc.)
5:15 Toasts given by Best Man, Maid of Honor, Father(s). Thank you toast by Bride and Groom
5:30 Cake cutting
5:45 Shoe Question Game (can find easiliy online)
6:00 Regular dancing (5 songs Spanish, 2 English. Repeat, etc.)
8:55 Last slow dance
9:00 Bride and Groom get sent off
How does that sound? Is 9:00 a good end time? I know Groom’s side will want to dance a lot. Is 3 hours good enough? Or will people expect it to go til later? Thank you 🙂
Also, who takes care of cleaning up the reception place afterwards? Should we actually stay and do that, isntead of having a send off? Thanks!
