@ahigg396:  I’m chicana with a bunch of family who immigrated and I haven’t seen most of those customs! My family is LAME! 🙂 Your wedding looks like it was so much fun. 

I know it’s a tiny detail- but I just LOVE the vellum bags for the candy bar! They are just such a special little touch instead of clear or paper.

@ahigg396:  Omg I love Mexican culture! This looks so cool! 

I’ve never seen a lot of those traditions. What part of Mexico is your husband from? 

You guys looked awesome. I especially loved the pic of you on either side of the door. The look on his face just melts my heart 🙂


ETA: Just read the last part of your post! My FI is Dominican so of course there will be a lot of dancing and drinking but I’m not sure about any other traditions. My family is Southern (at least the ones who I grew up with) so we are having a family friend play the bluegrass fiddle for the ceremony and will probably mix it up with some country music, and of course plenty of good down-home cooking!

Adorable! We’re decorating with Mexican accents, but not having most of the traditions, like the lazo, arras, etc. Or the dances. I was for them, but FI was not.

We’re decorating with papel picado and bright colors and I am going to sneak a Dia de los Muertos cake topper on our cupcake tower (FI, is not for it, lol)

@ahigg396:  I’m somewhat familiar. I had a feeling from the pictures that it was somewhere towards Oaxaca, since the further south you go the less “Americanized” the traditions seem to be. I just looked it up and it’s actually closer to Mexico City but I’m pretty sure I’ve heard of it having more of a “country” vibe. I grew up with a lot of Mexican friends and have always had the BEST time at their get- togethers so I am super jelly that you get to do this all the time! You should definitely visit his city one day 🙂
