WEDDING TRADITIONS: SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE
San Miguel de Allende is probably Mexico’s favorite destination to celebrate beautiful wedding ceremonies and it is thanks to its traditions that make you part of the magic. Whether you choose to hold one or more of the traditional events mentioned here, it is a fact that during your wedding weekend many photographs will be taken that will remain forever. Scheduling your Makeup and Hairstyle in advance for these events will give you the opportunity to plan every detail of your look without pressure.
In this account we prepare everything you need to know about the main wedding customs of this magical place.
The Callejoneadas began to be part of the weddings in San Miguel about 20 years ago. The custom marks that they can be celebrated the night before the wedding or the same day, at the end of the ceremony. They are fun tours of the alleys and historical points of the city led by a tequila burrito, adorned with flowers, and a Estudiantina, Mariachi or Musical Band that is responsible for putting all the participants of the Callejoneada to dance along the way while they are tasting a good mezcal or tequila in the traditional clay jars of the region.
Another important part of the Callejoneada are the Mojigangas. These are giant sculptures that are customized to represent the bride and groom. The head and bust are made of cardboard and papier-mâché and then mounted on a structure that gives them their height of 2 to 6 meters.
It is these sculptures that transform the tour into a true walking festival, astonishing the guests and leaving incredible photos to remember. They are created in great detail and always seek to replicate the most representative details of both members of the couple. For their beauty and the tradition they represent, they are an essential part of the Callejoneadas de San Miguel de Allende.
The role of this “Party Before the Party” is to start the weekend of your Wedding. It is the opportunity for families and other guests to spend time together, get to know each other and feel comfortable to enjoy the big day.
The custom is to organize dynamics to help your guests integrate and start enjoying. For these events the most beautiful locations are the terraces of San Miguel de Allende. Among its hotels and lounges you will find the perfect venue to start your Wedding Weekend in the best way with all your guests.
