Hola Hispanic Bees!
I’m wondering what kinds of fun stuff you are doing (or did you do) for your wedding that incorporates your race/culture/heritage/latina/hispanic spicy-ness!!
Songs? Special drinks? Special decorations? Mariachis? Themed gifts?

I’m probably going to add Papel Picado as a decoration.

if you think of something, let me know. I’m Colombian too and marring an…well a pure bred Alaskan man lol. I wanted to do an “hora loca” but thats only if alot of my family get to make it for the wedding.
I have no clue what Colombian traditions there are out there. I even asked my grandma and she had no clue. lol. It’s always been a traditional catholic ceremony from what I can remember.

I’m Mexican decent and grew up in a border town so I really want to bring some of that into my wedding. I am planning on using the lazo and arras since all the weddings in my family have used them. I also really want mariachis for cocktail hour, I’m hoping that we can work it into the budget. I also want to get a mexican wedding banner made with our names, and we are thinking about making paper flowers to decorate the gazebo. For our rehersal dinner we are going to my favorite Mexican restaurant, so at the very least if I can’t afford mariachis for the cocktail hour we can have them at the rehersal dinner. It’s funny because to me these all seem like normal things, I keep forgetting that for my Fiance who is from Ohio these things are not tradition! It’s been fun sharing my culture and traditions with my Fiance over the last three years!

Thanks for the responses! I love the idea of papel picado! And lazos and arras?! HOW COOL! Las ideas estan super buenas!! So awesome!
As far as Colombian traditions go, i don’t know of any either!! 🙁
But, I know we’ll be doing Spanish music along with music in English! We’re going to be giving everyone a little bottle of Ron Medellín Anejo (Aged Rum from Medellin) as a gift! Woohoo!
Tambien vamos a utilizar flores de Colombia! Also, we’re going to be using flowers from Colombia in our floral arrangements 😀
Que sigan las ideas! <3

We’re both Tejano so we included a few things:
We had mariachis, pan de polvo as our favors, and during our ceremony we had a lasso and arras. It was really nice. 🙂

He’s Jewish, I’m latina. The ceremony will be a tradtionally Jewish, even though I am not Jewish. My one requirement, a Spanish speaking rabbi. Preferably Spanish being their native tongue. The problem is we haven’t found one yet. But I have family coming from the homeland so I want them to understand part of the ceremony. Got my fingers crossed that we will find one.
