If you are attending a Latin wedding this bridal season, take a look at some traditions to expect below.
Venezuela: Often the bride and groom disappear during their wedding reception — good luck comes to whoever notices first, and good luck comes to the bride and groom if they don’t get caught.
Guatemala: After the ceremony, a reception is held at the groom’s home. The mother of the groom greets the couple as they enter and breaks a white bell filled with flour, rice, and grains to represent prosperity and abundance.
Chile: It is common for couples to wear their wedding rings before the wedding, but on their right hands. The rings are switched to the left hand during the ceremony.
Panama: The groom gives the bride 13 gold coins that have been blessed by a priest before the wedding. These represent Christ and his 12 apostles.
Costa Rica: The night before the wedding, the groom usually serenades his bride-to-be to show everyone in her neighborhood how he feels about her.
Mexico: Sometimes the bride carries two bouquets — one for herself, and one as an offering to the Virgin Mary in hopes that she will bless the marriage.
El Salvador: In El Salvador, Seven white cars escort the bride and her family to the church.
Colombia: Bachelors place their shoes under the bride’s dress at the wedding, then the groom chooses one from beneath the gown. Whoever’s shoe gets chosen is said to be the next person to get married.
Puerto Rico: A unique Puerto Rican tradition is the bridal doll. This doll is fashioned to look like the bride and is dressed similarly. Charms from the doll are taken off and given to the guests, who will often pin dollars onto the doll in exchange.
