Mexican wedding shirts are also known as a guayaberas and contain up to four small, patch pockets and two rows of vertical, fine pleats.These shirts are commonly made of linen and are of equal formality than any tux out there.Old fashioned dresses were heavily influenced by Spanish tradition and purported designs inspired in the Flamenco-type dress.Alternatively, indigineous brides would craft their dresses according to their local traditions and customs, many times incorporating imagery elements of good luck, fertility, and prosperity. Sponsors may be grandparents, parents, godparents, relatives, or friends.
According to a study by the Latin American Association of Religious Studies and discussed by an article in Sipse, about 50% of Mexican wedding ceremonies today involve a Catholic mass. And before 1910 the state and the church were not separated, which means that all weddings were celebrated in the Catholic church.
In more recent times Mexican brides look to bridal magazines for inspiration and have their dresses tailor-made to their own body type and preferences from barely-there Monique Lhuillier inspired dresses to modern and contemporary Vera Wang type dresses.
Of course, traditional fabrics and a rich inheritance of local design are still present at bridal shops adding a touch of tradition to modern styles.
