Collective Wedding in Mexico City Sets a Record with 800 Couples Tying the Knot
Eight-hundred couples were married Saturday in the borough of Iztapalapa in the Federal District — all at the same time, breaking the record for the largest collective wedding in Mexico.
They were among some 8,000 people married in the capital so far this year with the support of a program called Collective Weddings, which saves each couple the expenditure of 1,200 pesos.
...The newlyweds enjoyed breakfast, slices of a huge cake made for the occasion, a traditional toast and raffle prizes. Among the latter were two donated personally by Valencia: a pair of all-expenses-paid honeymoon trips to Cancún and Acapulco.
While the event set a record for Mexico, there have been other collective weddings with a far greater number of participants. In India in 2012, 3,600 couples were married in a single ceremony.
