hey moondancepastor!! I am a peruvian-american bride…well partly…my father is 100% peruvian and my mom is american (polish/french candian)

 

I am also wanting to incorporate some customs to honor my father’s heritage, but haven’t really found too many.

I found one where they put ribbons in the cake and one of them has a charm attached, the single ladies each pull a ribbon and the one that gets the charm is set to marry next.

We will be incorporating some yummy pervuvian dishes to our dinner buffet.  I am not sure what will be made yet, but I love Lomo Saltado and I think that is one of the contenders…I just hope that my Dad is up for the task of making such a large amount.

My father also was thinking he might want to hire a salsa band for part of the reception, which would be pretty neat.

that’s a great idea for the signature drink! we thought to include this as well…trouble is that not too many people really know what it is (well at least a lot my guests might not)

I also wanted ceviche, but don’t know how well received it would be by guests…it’s one of those things that you love or hate.

I don’t think so!  My dad loves that stuff!  Or chicha morada (sp?) that stuff is good too, but soo very very purple and has horrible staining potential!

I’m peruvian and I know that to my father is very important that we dance the vals.. I tried explaining the daughter/ father dance and he got mad.. because according to him he always waited for me to get married; so that we could dance the traditional vals. It’s like a 10 minuto long song. But you dance it first with your dad and then he hands you over to your grandfather, then dance it with your brothers and finally your uncles. We are doing this .. and it seemed that its very important to the boys in my family  =) Now the song is over 10 minutes but when I was watching my cousing wedding which was in Peru .. I got the meaning of it. It was very pretty.

Hello there,

Another Peruvian bride here! I was trying to incorporate Pisco somehow into my wedding reception and might try to get little pisco carafes… I saw the idea in the website below but it does not say where to get them :-(. I guess I’ll be looking for them my next Peru trip.
