Are Pearls a No, No for mexican weddings?
Posted 06 April 2009 - 03:21 PM
I've been doing a lot of research about mexican wedding traditions some of which I would like to incorporate into our ceremony. Something that has cropped up is that in Mexico a bride is not suppossed to wear pearls as it is beleived to symbolise future tears and unhappiness in the marriage
I had considered using pearls as my big theme. I was going for the whole affinity between pearls and love such as the length of time it takes a pearl to develop, how it begins as a grain of sand and can only be complete if all the elements come together perfectly etc.
Im not big on superstition but I dont want to cause offense to the judge or co-ordinator or for all the mexicans I encounter on the day to be aghast at my faux pas!
Is this something any of you have heard of? Should I play safe and consider doing away with my pearls theme altogether?
Thanks for the help.

I think it is really up to you, if you want to use pearls go right ahead. I'm sure they will understand that it is not your tradition. If you want to stay with the mexican tradition then maybe think about incorporating something else. In the end it is your wedding and it should be what you want.

A few links (some of them are from people who sell pearls, however.... does not mean the content is less accurate as I find them in different languages and they all say the same thing) :

The final say is to the bride and groom - as very well said here :
