Just figure out which traditions are most important to you from each culture, then start working them in!

You obviously won’t have a wedding that’s completely one way or the other, so you have freedom to pick and choose, and create your own ceremony, just as unique as your own marriage will be.

You can do both ceremonies.  You can do an orthodox ceremony with western style wedding clothes and sign the marriage certificate and then the day before or after or on the same day, you can do an “simple” cambodian wedding ceremony without the processional, just the ceremony.   My husband is Lao and this is what we did, an American style wedding on Saturday and then a simple, scaled down Lao wedding ceremony on Sunday.  And it wasn’t stressful at all…it was actually nice to spread the celebration out a couple days and spend time with our out of town family.

I’m Cambodian too!! My husband is Vietnamese and he’s Baptist while I’m Buddhist. We didn’t let our differences interfere our relationship. We agreed to get married my tradition. We had our Buddhist ceremony and wedding ceremony.. then wedding reception. Everything went well.

I think in your problem, you need to talk with your fiance and his family. You guys need to have an agreement somewhere.
