I don’t have any direct experience with this, but don’t Indian weddings happen over multiple days? Is it important to you both to have the actual wedding ceremony in both religions? If not, you could just do one or more of the Indian rituals/traditions the day before the wedding and then have the Christian wedding the next day. The reception could be a mix of both cultures.

I think it would be less stressful to split the festivities into two days.

My cousin got married in Sept. and they did 2 ceremonies and 1 reception. They held the christian ceremony first and the the hindu ceremony second. They started at 10 a.m. and did it all in one day. Their main reason for holding it all in one day was because all the guests were from out of town. For the reception they had an Indian menu and an American menu. It made for a long day, but was worth it. It was really fun and it turned out beautifully.
