Miniature sombreros are really fun and a colorful idea for your Spanish wedding reception. If there are children who will be present at your wedding reception, amuse them with a piñata, which you can make yourself or purchase from a party supply or craft store
Favors are distributed to guests as a parting memto of the wedding to thank them for attending.
Favors also are a way to share the gook luck of the wedding couple. Typical favors include candies, matchbooks, notepads, perfume bottles, and crouched items.
Another decoration and favor ides from Puerto Rico centers around a doll dress as a bride.
Tradition calls for placing ribbon favors(capias) on the doll’s dress. During the Spanish wedding reception, the bride removes these ribbon favors from the doll and pins one on each of the wedding guests.
The ribbons generally are printed with the bride’s and groom’s names and wedding date.
