I think it’s important for your guests to understand what is being said at the ceremony.  If it’s going to be difficult for a lot of people to understand, I think you should spend the money.  I think it probably depends on what you mean by your family understanding “some English”.

When my aunt got married the entire ceremony was in Ukranian.  My grandparents, my father, and my aunts and uncles can speak Ukranian fluently, but I can’t – and I think a lot of other people at the wedding could not understand the ceremony.  It’s very awkward and frustrating (and boring) to not understand what is being said.

We are having our ceremony in two languages. My Fiance is Swedish and all his family will be coming from Sweden and I am American so we found a Swedish church in LA and will be doing the ceremony in dual. We have not worked out exactly what parts will be on what except the vows for sure will be in English. I am not worried about people understanding because it will make it meaningful for us and it is our wedding!
