Love transcends all borders – space, language, culture, or anything else that might stand in its way.
Love is not about the language you speak or the culture you belong to – it’s the connection that brings people together regardless of where they or their families come from.
If you are among the happy couples who hail from different cultures, you surely want to bring your heritage into your Big Day. This is, after all, who you are – and it’s important to celebrate your backgrounds on such an important day of your life.
But how do you do that? How do you plan a multicultural wedding? Here are some tips to keep in mind:
· Celebrate each other’s ancestries. There’s nothing more beautiful than showing the world your love goes beyond all differences – so why not surprise your loved one (and their family) by saying a few words in their native language during the wedding? You could say a sentence or two in their language during the wedding vows, or you could include something nice in their language in your wedding speech – no matter what you choose, you are bound to bring tears of joy to their eyes.
· Bring your languages together. You want their side of the family to be fully immersed in the wedding experience – and creating bilingual wedding stationery is one of the best ways to do this. Furthermore, if the ceremony will be held in one language and you want to make sure all the members of your significant other’s family understand what is being said, why not hire an interpreter so that everyone can be included?
· It’s more than just the language; it’s everything you grew up with. Your mom’s hot chocolate, their mom’s cookies, your traditions and theirs, all combining to create a unique ceremony. Even different traditional wedding attire can be paired together to celebrate both cultures. Including parts of your culture in your Big Day will not only show everyone how proud you are of your ancestry – it will create a completely unique event every single guest will love.
