The article Celebrating the Quinceanera shows us how some young Latina women are opting to celebrate their arrival into womanhood. Many are incorporating the traditional with the modern, making the experience not only reverent, but fun!

Do enjoy the article entitled Traditional Mexican Weddings

Were you aware that in ancient times, traditional Mexican weddings were often held at a bride's home, or in her parents' yard, decorated for the occasion? Both the bride and groom appeared very formal because if they were regular people, it was the one day that they could wear their most lavish clothing. In those days the groom may have even traveled, on horseback, to meet his bride.

Following the matrimonial ceremony he would take his wife to the home of his parents where they would live. They would ride there in a palanquin, a cart.

Illuminating the journey from the groom�s home to the bride�s home would be hand lanterns. These were lit on the evening before the wedding and the groom�s family would show up with a chest packed with goodies and gifts for their soon to be in-laws.

Please share YOUR Traditional Mexican Wedding traditions. We�d love to 'hear' them.
