A ‘Nicho’ (Niche or Shrine) stems from the Spanish religious practice, where Colonial homes who have a niche in the wall featuring an image of a saint that would bless the house. Sometimes carved into walls, or made of tin a nicho is a recessed frame that holds either a figure or an image of a particular saint. In today’s contemporary Mexico, nichos and alters to Saints (particularly the Virgin of Guadalupe – or Patron Saint of Mexico) can be found in homes and businesses often accompanied by candles and flower offerings. This wedding nicho is a blessing for newlyweds!
