How to plan a bilingual wedding?

April 3rd, 2010

Ok, I have this idea to maybe have two weddings. My fiance is Mexican (so therefore A LOT of people that he knows speak ONLY spanish). I’d like to plan two small weddings so that when people come, there won’t only be two specific groups of people (people who speak english and people who speak spanish). So I’ve offered to my fiance to have a traditional american wedding and then have a traditional mexican wedding. (I don’t speak spanish so either way it’s going to be uncomfortable for me) Does anyone else have any tips on how to do this?

    Have a translator and keep the ceremony short. Also have a translator for the reception for the toast and announcements when the food is ready. But everyone can dance together…in any language. I would have one wedding. Also have two programs one each language. I would also incorporate Mexican traditions in your wedding so they feel included. As your FH to ask his mom what kind of traditions would she expect. Good Luck
