I am Asian and My fiance is Eastern European. I am Buddhist and he is Muslim. We knew that we were from two very different backgrounds, but it never really bothered us. Both of our families are very supportive. Our culture and religious differences were never an issue.
We are planning our wedding in Las Vegas. We will include very minimal culture elements in our weddings. The ceremony will be non-religious.
I know I am very lucky to have such open minded family and future in-laws. My wedding planning is very stress free so far. They let us do whatever we want.
Let me know your wedding planning experience.

I’m part of an interfaith and interracial couple as well. My now husband is American and Jewish, and I’m Hindu and was actually born in Venezuela (Parents are from India). We actually did quite a bit to combine both elements of our weddings. Had two ceremonies, different types of foods, and in general combined important rites from both sides. We really had a fabulous day, and yes a big part of it was because both our families were extremely open to the other culture.

Yes we fit the description. I am native american and his family is Peruvian. My family is Catholic and his is family is Jehovah Witness’. Neither one of us however really practices our families religions. There were some issues that came up at our wedding. Mostly with seating charts because of the huge difference in opinions. Plus JW;s can be very radical in opinion and lots of people aren’t very accepting of them.
