I am finding it hard to write this post since all I want to do is brag about my beautiful girls. I will try to stick to the facts!
On May 9th my cousin Flavio married Linda, their wedding was as interesting, colorful and thought provoking as they are. Flavio wore a typical vest and Linda a wedding dress with an embroidered guipil waist band. Many of the details in the wedding were about their love for photography and Guatemalan craft.
Nicole and Megan were asked to be flower girls, we splurged and got the latest fashion on typical outfits: a single color pallete.
The girls outfits are typical to Olintepeque and their hair do is typical of Quetzaltenango. The outfits consist of the 'blusa', blouse, (it is called blusa when the embroidery is sewed on the fabric with details on the neck and sleeves vs guipil which is all done in a loom); the 'corte', skirt, and the 'faja', the belt. Linda wore on her hair an adapted version of a 'tocoyal'.
