Mexican wedding tradition question

Recommended Posts

20 minutes... oh no,, that's out then.. I don't want our ceremony to be an hour long.. Kind of takes away from the point of having a DW, IMO at least. She (MIL) will just have to deal with it, and when we get back to the states we'll have our marriage blessed.

 

Thanks for the info, btw..

i think people are getting alittle confused the rosary yes that takes 20-1 hour depending on who does all of the prayers it IS very tedious.

 

The lasso is what several people have already explained it is placed arround the coupple just to signify unity etc.. This take sno time at all so it could be incorporated to your ceremony maybe right after the vows and the ring?

OH.. well that's not bad... It looks like we might not be doing the "sand Ceremony now" but instead doing the "hand ceremony" Oh hell, I just want to be married and be done with all of this.. :-)

yep... the rosary is mostly done after someone has died... now if you did the bus thing then maybe the rosary would be worth doing . I can help lead it:)

 

Happy Birthday! Tammy

We're planning on doing the Lasso ceremony. I'm Catholic and I'd like to find symbolic ways to integrate some tradition to our non traditional ceremony. I'm also wearing a traditional mantilla veil. We are still designing our ceremony so that's all that's concrete for now

Anyone planning on doing the Lasso ceremony??  We are getting married at our church 2 weeks before the DW in Cancun and wanted to incorporate the Lasso ceremony with the church ceremony.  I like that we can keep the rosary in our family and pass it down to our future kids.  Just wondering if anyone else is doing it or incorporating it in their ceremony and where they found their rosary/lasso?  My fiance's mother got us one when she visited Guatemala recently but it wasn't a rosary it was more of a beaded rope and I was looking for more of a rosary so we can have it blessed at the church where we are getting married.

I believe the lasso is where a couple puts this rope around you and your husbands shoulders and it signifies the union of the two. I believe it has to be a married couple that share a good union. I thought this was done only in catholic churches but I can be completely wrong. Hope that helps.smile159.gif

This is right, usually just done at Catholic churches, but I have seen people doing it at beach weddings. Why not?

I definitely want to incorporate some local traditions... We aren't having a church ceremony but like the idea of doing the lasso.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
