It’s always important to consider appropriate host etiquette when attending a wedding. This includes taking a good shower (especially if the pair has specifically requested that ), dressing appropriately for the occasion, and abstaining from embarrassing yourself or others. There are, however, a few more important factors to take into account when planning Latin ceremonies.

It’s common for the soon-to-be husband to give his bride 13 las arras during the “money dance” ( El Baile del Billete ) in Latin culture during the “money dance.” This is a representation of his commitment to pay for her. It’s also a nice omen for their union.

It’s popular for the bride and groom or a designated people to travel from board to desk to side out tiny items known as detalles to their attendees during the meals. These can range from practical things like personalized mementos to symbolic items like a role-playing heart or 13 pairs of arras.

Spouses are expected to sway and hold hands under an arch made of the couple’s shroud when the audio begins to play during a traditional Puerto Rican dancing known as la Vibora de la Mar. This is a fantastic way to show the couple how much they care about their friends.
