    Has anyone had an unofficial wedding and incorporated some of the Mexican Catholic traditions such as the lasso and coins? We are getting married outdoors and our friend will be the officiant. He is not a priest or reverend, but he is wonderful and also very religious. My Fiance and I would like to incorporate some readings and the lasso and coins since he is MX, but don't want to offend either. Looking for guidance and possibly an outline from a wedding someone else has planned which is similar. Thanks for your help ladies!

      I have the same question. I wonder if anyone else has done this.

        we thought about doing the coins as well, but we aren't religious (more spiritual) and they represent Christ and the disciples (sp?) so we thought it'd be a little disrespectful. However if you are religious, don't not do it just because the ceremony isn't catholic.
