This may be a long shot, but is there anyone out there that is planning or has been to a wedding in Ecuador that could offer any advice on major differences between weddings there and in the states?
My fiance is from Guayaquil and we are planning our wedding in Salinas in March of 2011. I have one friend there that is going to help me with planning but I would like to see if anyone else has any advice.
I put the wedding website together in both english and spanish, and my sister-in-law is designing two sets of invitations and save-the-dates in each language. I already bought my dress here and brought it there on my last trip down and left it at his parents house.
I will be moving to Ecuador in September and plan on living there for the next two years or so, so I will be able to work directly with florists, photographers etc.
My major concerns are that I don't know what is traditional in an Ecuadorian wedding and how to make sure everything goes smoothly for my guests from Minnesota who are coming down for the wedding. Also any advice on appropriate attire for the wedding party, I really like the idea of knee-length chiffon dresses for the girls and khaki suits for the guys.
