They say that love is blind and it doesn’t discriminate between different languages and cultures. What an opportunity then for a bilingual wedding to add a depth of richness and diversity to such a happy occasion.
Get the planning part right and you’ll be sure to make the event inclusive and unforgettable for all the right reasons. Here’s how to prepare.
If you don’t mind being less formal and plan to send the invites electronically then this will make things easier. You can get creative and send out your invitations in multiple languages.
Plan the Ceremony Carefully
Ask Guests to Participate
The ceremony and toasts are great opportunities to include family and friends in the celebration. If you can, get as many guests involved in equal measure from both cultures.
Ask friends that speak both languages to help out instead of buying a wedding gift. If you can plan where they sit during the ceremony and meal afterwards then they can help by offering a quick translation at important moments.
Signage and Speeches
Food and Music
Nothing brings people together more than these two wedding components. Guests may not always be able to understand each other’s language but they will get a sense of the different cultures through food and music.
The Secret of a Successful Bilingual Wedding
