Wedding traditions of Latin America Like most weddings in other parts of the world, Latino weddings are happy, family-filled times literally stuffed with traditions, some dating back thousands of years. From something as important as what the bride wears on her wedding day down to the most trivial detail, a Latino wedding oozes Tradition and is filled with reminders that, as humans, we have been going through these rituals for eons and will continue to do so far into the future.

The coins are blessed by the priest and passed through the hands of the newlyweds several times, ending up with the bride. She then carries them in a small bag during the ceremony as a sign that the groom has pledged his support to take care of her all of her life.
