A Spanish bodas or wedding is a cheerful event, when families get even closer and celebrate together. In Spain, families are very tight-knit, especially the closest relatives – parents and children, siblings, grandparents and grandkids, etc. Traditionally, couples invited lots of relatives to a wedding to show them respect and share this happy day with them, so there were often at least 200 wedding guests. Though today, weddings got smaller and only close relatives and friends are invited. But still, there are wedding traditions that show how important it is for Spanish people to keep in touch and maintain good relationships with their immediate family.
