Haha!

We’re doing the gold coins and the lasso.

What kind of ceremony are you having? The first things that automatically come to mind are the laso and the aras.

@steampunksurprise:  Yes, we’re doing the arras as part of the ceremony. I’m only familiar with Mexican Catholic traditions, so I’m unsure how they’ll work in a different setting. I’m having an interfaith ceremony, so we’re trying to work it out as well.

I think the biggest traditions are in the ceremony, which you can still have at a non-Catholic wedding. Outside of that, I think the easiest way of incorporating his heritage would be the music, maybe some foods? I’m having a Mexican-Eastern European wedding, in Mexico – and will be having Eastern European foods, drinks and music for cocktail hour.

Mariachi’s it’s a must in a mexican wedding at some point of the day 🙂 I don’t know how hard would be to find a mariachi band overthere. Good Luck.

I agree with the Mariachi, 

 

Are you also doing the Vivora del Mar? It’s a dance, lots of fun

@steampunksurprise:  Congratulations!!! Besides the arras (coins) and the lasso, there’s the throwing of the rice at the bride and groom upon exiting the church.

La Vibora de La Mar is also very typical at the reception. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_KFH8UET4U – This is only done at (Mexican) weddings.

“El Baile del Billete” (the money dance) A dance where wedding guests pin money on the groom and bride clothes as a gift.

🙂
