Hello!

I’m white, but my FI’s family is Vietnamese and his mother and grandmother want us to incorporate some traditional elements into our engagement/wedding.  So, his family is throwing us an engagement party in two weeks.  The attendees are as follows:

– Me & FI
– My parents
– FI’s mother and quasi-stepfather
– FI’s three siblings and 2 of their significant others
– FI’s grandparents
– FI’s 2 uncles, 4 aunts, 3 cousins, and the SO of one of the aunts
– 3 to 5 of FI’s grandmother’s extended family from Vietnam

So, a total of 26-28 people.  The extended family from Vietnam are a last-minute addition; we just found out that they happened to plan an overlapping trip to the state, and they’re staying with FI’s grandparents, which is where we’re having the party, so obviously they’re invited!

Hello I’m new to wedding bee. I’m Cambodian and my husband is Vietnamese. Our culture are totally similar; tea ceremony and wedding gifts such as plenty of gifts from the groom and his family. Gifts include a whole roast pig, 2 roast ducks, 2 steamed chicken, fruit trays, dessert trays, etc. Weddings are expensive, but its once in a lifetime so its worth it. I got married Cambodian tradition. I had 7 Cambodian traditional outfits including an American style wedding dress.
