Proposal Idea
Posted on March 15th, 2010 at 4:14 pm by ksyed100 and tagged , , ,

For our  project Elizabeth Reyes and I were thinking to compare cultural differences. Elizabeth and I are both from different ethnic backgrounds and we thought it would be interesting if we could  experience and compare each others cultures.  Elizabeth with her family actually moved here from Mexico when she was 14 and I was born in the US but my parents are from Pakistan. We both decided on comparing our own traditional wedding rituals to each others. Elizabeth and I will both attend a traditional Pakistani wedding and a traditional Mexican wedding and we will try to compare and understand each others cultures through our own eyes.  Some ideas are the comparison of the bridal gown and representation of certain colors and different rituals preformed during and after the wedding.
