- Wedding: July 2012
I am Mexican American, born and raised in the Northwest…and my Fiance’ is Samoan American, born and raised in the Northwest…..and we are getting married in Mexico next summer…we are soo excited, and there’s absolutley no doubt our wedding will ve very Mexican. =) However, we have alot of pressure from those members on my American dad’s side and my fiancee’s side most of whom will not be able to come to oru wedding…to have a receptin when we get back.
I wasn’t sure this would be fianancially feasible…on top of the fact I don’t want to have to plan a second wedding!!! But I found a resonable venue, very classy that will feed up to 160 people and be totally within our very modest budget..plus it was all inclusive meaning I don’t have to worry about renting anything else..or hiring anyone else to do anything…everything down to modest centerpieces is included.
My hometown reception will include plenty of cacasians, hispanics, asians, and islanders alike…it wil truly be the melting pot of all wedding receptions!?! My fiancee’ really did not want to have to hire friends and family to take care of the food and made it clear he wanted it catored (as do I) to avoid stress on everyones part…but now I have my Mother-In-Law telling me I need to ask the venue if they can bring in Samoan food (seriosuly, after I’m paying for the food to feed everyone already???) She wants us to wear giant Samoan leighs…and she wants her friend to decorate the venue Samoan style…on top of that I have one of my Bridesmaids, who’s also Mexican American…and VERY pushy, telling me it will be ‘weird’ if I have ‘only white people food’.
I’m getting really angry here.
