Differences in a White and a Mexican Wedding

A good friend sent this to me and when I was finished rolling on the floor laughing, I knew I had to share it. Enjoy. There is a lot of truth to it.

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 de los pasteles

WHITES: eat the food and cake.

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

MEXICANS: at the reception, they drink Corona , Tecate, Pacifico, Coors, Budweiser. Bud Light, Bud Ice , 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 to 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 proceed 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

WHITES: wake up the next morning NOT WANTING another beer.

MEXICANS: wake up the next morning at your house WANTING another beer, for la cruda and left over menudo and pastel
