A fellow employee emailed this to me today, I couldn't help but post it up here. So awesome. happy.gif Here is the Difference Between White & Mexican Weddings.



WHITES: send out invitations.
MEXICANS: send out maps.

WHITES: receive their invitations 3 months in advance.
MEXICANS: find out about the wedding 1 week before from the tia or the abuela, or the chismosa neighbor

WHITES: have seven Bridesmaids.
MEXICANS: have seven pages of Padrinos.

WHITES: RSVP their invitation.
MEXICANS: show up with three car loads and one gift.

WHITES: go to the wedding AND the reception.
MEXICANS: just go to the reception .

WHITES: have elegant food.
MEXICANS: have arroz, frijoles and birria.

WHITES: order the cake from a bakery.
MEXICANS: have their cake done by la señora down the street.

WHITES: eat the food and cake.
MEXICANS: eat the food and cake.......... AND take some home para mañana.

WHITES: at the reception, they drink wine.
MEXICANS: at the reception, they drink Coors, Budweiser. Bud Light , Bud Ice , Corona , Tecate, Pacifico, Casadores, Patron, Presidente, Jose Cuervo , Gusano's, Reposado, and anything else that is not glued to the decorations.

WHITES: relatives get drunk and pass out.
MEXICANS: get drunk, shed a few tears and start singing to Vicente Fernandez songs, fight, then show up at your house drink more, then pass out.

WHITES: dance at the party....................YEAH RIGHT!!!
MEXICANS: dance at the party to Norteñas, Rancheras, Reggaeton, Rap, Old School, Oldies, House, then precede drunk to the parking lot and resume the dancing.

WHITES: party ends at midnight.
MEXICANS: party ends when the COPS show up , then everyone goes to your house lol.

WHITES: wake up the next morning NOT WANTING another beer.
MEXICANS: wake up the next morning at your house WANTING another beer and left over menudo and pastel.

Now, you know you are laughing - cuz you've done at least 6 of these. I sure have!!!

Send this to all of those who have a sense of humor and are Proud to be MEXICAN!!! And to the Gringos that love you for being a MEXICAN!

¿why is swine flu spreading faster in US than in Mexico? simple answer: Americans are idiots.

<> Outstanding Posting! <> Thank you! You are absolutely correct!!! <> Many thanks for your insightful remarks. As an immigrant from Nicaragua we also celebrate our weddings like Mexicans do: With emotion and gusto! <> Every time I attend a Gringo Wedding, I find little spontaneity and lots of pre-planned moves. I know part of it is cultural. I like many things in the USA but as Latins we know how to have fun and be more spontenaous in our celebrations!!! (compared to my Caucasian friends and colleagues) <> From: Carlos Gomez

Funny, is just that we Mexicans actually have a party and not a play :p We celebrate the wedding, not act it. XD

I came here after searching for how to convert a .mdf to an .iso and somehow I end up with a lesson on how us gringos with our "boring," "quaint" notions of civility and consideration are inferior to the noble "La Raza" who is doing us all a favor by leaving their failed states in droves to impart some "Latin" flavor to us all. Thanks again, La Reconquista crowd.

Thank you for this post. Our white son is marrying a beautiful Mexican girl. While she is young and independent, wanting a white wedding with Mexican food and dancing...her mom and sister wonder why we would have a rehearsal dinner or wish to ask our friends. Our family is remote and our friends are our "family". When we respectfully ask for a coming together of ideas...mom and sis are dug in. It seems that Mexicans want their own way instead of cooperating; unless they have education and have learned to expand their minds. We embrace them...but they do not seem to really care. Just sayin'.

Sounds like a Greek wedding, but with Greek food instead of Mexican

For the guy who asks about white mexicans weddings ( i will assume that you assume that for being "white" they are from upper socioeconomic status). They are exactly the same as the one described here, only with more expensive tequilas.
