So my fiancee is Persian, I’m not. I was originally planning on a regular american ceremony, but when I saw how beautiful the persian ceremonies are, I’m contemplating one too. However, I don’t want people to think it’s weird if I do that, especially his famiy. If you attended a wedding where the bride is not persian but had a persian ceremony, would you think its weird?

no, I wouldn’t think it was weird at all. In fact, my cousin got married this past summer to an American girl, and all the family commented that they thought it was so nice that she had incorporated persian traditions into their wedding. I guess it’s dependant on the particular family. As long as his close family is happy with it then I say go for it!

Not weird at all… in fact I’m willing to bet that his family will be very disappointed if you don’t incorporate his traditions… and as a guest I’d love it!

I’m Persian and my fiance is not. We are having a mixed ceremony and definitely incorporating the Sofreh Aghd! Good luck!

It’s not weird at all, it’s a beautiful thing to observe traditions of both the bride and groom. I’m catholic, my FI muslim. Neither of us are converting, but wish to a ceremony to blend our faiths. I say go for it!!!
