My FH is from Nepal and is hindu and I am from America and I’m catholic. My family is not super traditional but his family is. I need advice on how to mix both cultures without insulting either at the same time. Also I am having a hard time finding articles on a traditional nepalese/ hindu wedding. Any advice will help thank you!

Can you do two different ceremonies? Hindu weddings are simply AMAZING! I’ve only been to indian hindu weddings, but I’m wondering how much they differ from nepalese hindu weddings? might be worth looking into. I’d suggest doing the whole hindu wedding ceremony for sure. Some friends of mine are hindu & did that, but also added a time where they said vows to each other to make it more modern/American.

Most likely not because we have to fly his family over here for it. My family is ok with me having a hindu wedding but there are some things i want to bring into it as well. I tried looking into what is different but it is hard to find because there is so many different ways to do the cermony in his country.

We had the issue of different cultures and religions for my brother’s marriage so we decided to plan two different weddings: the Hindu one for her side and the Christian one for ours.
Currently I’m trying to mix three cultures into my own wedding and am having a really hard time. I’m planning on doing just one ceremony but the more I think about it the more complicated it’s getting. I would say to make a list of traditions and rituals in your culture and the ones from your fiancé’s and try to incorporate them all without having them overlap.

You also will want to check with your officiants about what they are willing to do. My husband is Kenyan Catholic and I am Jewish American, and we were all about the idea of having elements from both in the ceremony. That is, until we found out that neither one of our officiants was willing to do that lol. So we ended up picking one (Jewish) and went with that.
