Congratulations! Tahniah! Felicidades! Felicitations!Grattis! Mazel tov! In all the languages, I would like to wish you the very best on the news of your engagement. I am thrilled that you have come to my blog. My name is Alin Anuar, I am the Lead Planner & Owner of Asian Atelier. I am excited to start the first entry of my blog in line with the launch of our 2018 campaign on Biculturalism & Interracial Wedding.
Interracial Wedding is a delicate event to organize due to the different religion & cultures. However, even if you and your fiance have two different backgrounds, it's completely possible to create a service that intertwines your individual beliefs and represents you both beautifully.
Here are some important tips to consider:
- BECOME YOUR OWN EXPERTS - Take some time to read about each other's religion in books and online. As you research, set aside rituals and tips that appeals to you. Some religions are very tolerant on interfaith unions, while others are much less so.
- INVOLVE THE FAMILIES - Since your marriage will ultimately blend two families together, it's a nice idea to sit down with both sets of your parents next. Listen to them about what's important to them, but remember that it's your wedding and what matters to you should come first. It would take a few conversations to settle it all
- WEDDING WISDOM - Take the time to explain culturally specific rituals in your program so guests feel in the loop and can appreciate the custom
Incorporating traditions from your heritage is a great way to honor family members and infuse your ceremony with personality
