First of all, welcome! I wish I had some good advice for you, but it sounds like you’ll have a tough time planning a wedding from so far away! Are family members going to help you check out venues/vendors before you arrive? I’m actually curious how this works. Maybe bees in the UK could be helpfulif they know the area or bees who have done destination weddings might have good tips. That might be a good place to ask for advice with planning? Good luck with everything.

Hello there, m’dear! I’m UK based, a long term traveller, have lived all over the world, had an interfaith/Catholic wedding, and would be happy to give you advice on anything which might be relevant to your situation. Please feel free to drop me a line any time.

Welcome to the bee!

@Mrs_Purple:  Ah, I did wonder about Catholicism when you mentioned Nicaragua, which is why I brought it up. I’m a non-conformist/Methodist, but DH is Catholic, so I know about dealing with all of that side of things!

@Mrs_Purple:  Ah, you’ll find this is a common problem, often discussed on here. DH and I have a disagreement on this issue… I say that I would like our children to attend both churches, and also to attend religious ceremonies with our non-Christian friends, and then to find their own path to the divine. He says that this could be confusing for a child.

Our main disagreements involve infant baptism (I am against, he is in favour), and Catholic first communion and confirmation (he is in favour, I say only when the child is old enough to actively decide for themselves).

Anyway, there’s a great bunch of ladies on here who will be sure to give you great advice when you need it. It’s an awesome community. They won’t always “get” you, if you are not American (I never realises before the bee that American culture is so different), and especially if you are non-American and religious (the American bees have different cultural cues which lead them to assume things about what you say which you don’t necessarily mean), but they are, in general, a really well meaning bunch of very nice ladies.

Hope you can make some lovely friends Smile
