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.
WHITES: at the reception, they drink wine
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
Now, you know you are laughing – cuz you’ve done at least 6 of these. I sure have!!!
