Usually the only difference between the everyday dress and the wedding dress was the color of the dress and the beautiful traditional embroidery.

Of course, the wealthy Mexicans (there were not many of them) didnt have to get married in traditional Mexican dress because they could afford to buy the western wedding gowns from the Europe.

The wealthy minority could also order the custom-made wedding dress that was the mixture of the traditional Mexican wedding dress and the western wedding gown.
