Fun Wedding Fact Friday-It’s All About The Dress

Who buys the dress? If you said the bride you’d be right, but that is not true for all cultures. Did you know that in traditional Mexican culture the wedding dress is made at the groom’s expense? That is right ladies, it is up to your future husband to purchase your dress! The bride or her family would sew her dress with fabrics purchased by the groom. These dresses have been greatly influenced by the culture of Spain. The imagery of good luck, prosperity, and fertility have also been worked into the design of these dresses. Nowadays that job is given to a tailor. Can you imagine having to plan your whole wedding and make the dress too?
