Friday Fiestas

The wedding fiestas are a big part of the Hispanic culture. They can last for days, with the start of cooking and preparations. Deeply rooted in Christian faith, many of the weddings are held in Catholic churches. Involving the family is a must. Everyone has a role and responsibility, down to the youngest children. The festivities are centered around family, friends, and food. It is a celebration of love and culture. The church is decorated in gorgeous colors and the flowers are left in the church after the wedding as an honoring to the Virgin Mary. "Mariachi" music can be heard at the start of the party. Food during the wedding can range from full service traditional Latin food served by waiters or a buffet line with finger foods. My daughter loves the part of the weeding where they cake is served with a huge assortment of Mexican cookies. The party goes on through the night when the wedding party leaves the reception center and heads over the family's house. The wedding ends early morning with a big breakfast for everyone. The wedding couple is honored and well served at their wedding. It is an amazing celebration to participate in.

  15. Love the Spanish theme wedding. Its closer to a typical Filipino wedding, our tradition were based on Hispanic culture, since we were colonized by Spanish for 300 years...
