This is a REALLY broad request.

Are you looking for Khmer (Cambodian?) wedding tips, or a planner/ hair/ makeup/ and outfits?

Because we can’t plan your wedding… I think your best bet would to go read some wedding planner reviews on this website and others for your area (The Knot, Wedding Wire, etc.) and take it from there. A good planner can help you find most of the things you are looking for.

And as an FYI, I am in a mixed couple as well but we didn’t defer to one culture or the other – we just had a wedding that made both of us happy, while integrating a little bit of culture from both our backgrounds.

@Jewelsx:  OK, not a problem! I thought you wanted a wedding planner.

Also, I really liked the website (and book) “A Practical Wedding” for help planning our not-so-traditional wedding.

The good news is if you’re getting married in May ’15, you have a LOT of time to research all these things.

Have you thought about maybe looking for a Khmer website/message board to ask some questions on? Might be helpful. 🙂

@Jewelsx:  I think that any Khmer aspects you bring in should be planned with the help of your fiance or one of his family members.  It’s too bad his mother is sick, but does he have any other relatives that might be excited about the wedding?  It’s difficult for outsiders to know which parts of tradition his family embraces and which parts would not be appropriate for whatever reason.  Plus, it’s an opportunity to bond with his family.

@Jewelsx:  That sounds like a great way to get closer with that side of his family!
