My fiance is black and I am white, and our ceremony will be held in our church which is primarily black. Our food is southern which is where both our families come from. But our friends and family is very diverse. As far as being an interracial couple it doesn’t phase us at all. People are always going to look at different, and being different is special!

Gotta say, all these couples are so gorgeous! Y’all are going to make (or already have) some good looking kids!

Here’s my Fiance and me. I am Vietnamese, he is Norwegian/English/German/etc. This was taken around Christmas time!

@toasty:  what a good looking couple!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I am half Filipino, half caucasian (with dashes of Spanish, Cherokee and German with a French last name).  FI is half Polish, and and the other half is composed of Scottish and British.  I want to incorporate some Filipino traditions, like the coin, veil etc. ceremony but am having trouble trying to incorporate Polish, Scottish and British traditions.  Maybe we will incorporate the Polish bread and salt blessing?  FI refuses to wear a kilt or tartan Tongue Out darn. i love a man in a kilt (seriously).

Yep! My Fiance is Dominican (NYC born and raised between NYC and DR.) My father’s family has been in the southern US as long as anybody and my mother immigrated from Morocco as a little girl. Being an interracial couple is not something that crosses my mind often either, unless it comes to weird family behaviors that one or the other is trying to explain.

We are but we also don’t think about it much we are well versed in each other’s cultures and both grew up in the same city as kids.  The only time it is apparent is when he is in a room with my family or I am in a room with his.  He’s mostly white and I am mostly Puerto Rican.

Our clashes are usually personality based and very rarely a cultural diference.

We are interracial, too!  I am from a Caucasian woman from the South, and my fiance is Japanese from Tokyo..haha  weird blend of hometown cultures.

I always forget we are interracial, too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi all!  We’re also interracial.  I’m… well, a mutt (Native American, Irish, Italian, etc. but mostly I just look white), and my Fiance is African-American.  We’re not having a particularly cultural wedding, so I don’t think we’ll really be incorporating this into our wedding.

He’s Filipino (but self-described “whitewashed”) and I’m as white as can be. I really enjoy his large family and their cooking, though every time I enter someone’s house I feel I’m going to burst into flames under the Virgin Mary’s gaze.

korean-persian couple here ๐Ÿ˜‰ i’m originally from korea(left when I was really young), and my fiance’s from iran (ditto) both raised in canada.

We both don’t know much about our tradition, but somehow we’re ending up incorporating few cultural colors to our wedding!

ceremony will be held with a beautiful persian sofreh, and we’re considering on entering with korean traditional dress.  But the veil my fiance got me for my dress is downright beautiful and almost want to enter wearing the wedding dress instead.  I even thought of entering with the korean dress first, then making the guests wait for me to change to the wedding dress and enter again! All because reception won’t shine the veil too much heh
