We are so proud of our cultural traditions! Here at Mi Padrino, we want to continue to promote the traditions that exist in Latin America, no matter where we may be in the world. A very important tradition for us is the madrina and padrino tradition.
Here in the United States, we have found that sometimes it is weird and hard to ask someone to be your madrina or padrino because many people here don’t know about it, or didn’t grow it up with that tradition. We want to promote it because it is one of the most wonderful and generous parts of our culture that demonstrates how much of an honor it is to be considered part of the family.
So that it is easier for you to ask someone to participate in your event as a madrina or padrino, we have compiled some ways to help you ask someone you care deeply about!
Hello __________! I am planning my event, and I would love to incorporate some of the Latino traditions I grew up with. I want to include the madrina/padrino tradition into my event, and would be really honored if you could participate in it. If it isn’t possible for you to participate, no hard feelings! I would be just as honored to just see you come to my event. I hope you can make it!
Hello! I don’t know if you knew that my event is coming up soon, but I would love to have you as a padrino/madrina of my event. I would be elated if you decided to accept my invitation and help me in prepare for my big day, but I also understand if it is not possible.
Hello ________! I am planning my event but I would love to have padrinos and madrinas to help me on my big day. Would you be interested in being one for my party? If it is not possible, don’t worry! I would still be honored to just be able to see you the day of my event.
Still need some help?
We hope you found this helpful while getting your padrinos together. If you need another example, check out “Traditions and Technology, How I asked for Padrinos and it worked!” and see how our CEO Kim got padrinos for her son’s Quince Años!
