I am not sure, so don’t quote me on this but being from the South and having grown up with many Southern Baptist friends/relatives, I am not sure that they would *allow* you to incoporate other faiths/traditions in  your service. I’m sure it depends on the pastor, etc. but if you are having an honest-to-goodness 100% SOUTHERN Baptist wedding (which is different from just a plan old Baptist wedding) then you are going to run up against some obstacles.

Churches who belong to the Southern Baptist Convention are typically extremely conservative and limited in what they will allow in worship. I’d suggest talking to your pastor.

I don’t mean this to sound condescending, but is your Fiance an actual Southern Baptist (meaning his church belongs to the SBC?) or is he a Baptist from the South, and you are just using the term “Southern Baptist” to describe his church? Because there is a huge difference theologically and rules-wise between the two factions.

You can add little indian touches to your wedding. Like wear henna on your hands, change into and indian dress for the reception, tell your friends to prepare a bollywood dance and rather then having a bachelorette party have a small mehndi ceremony.

There is so much you can do and most of all enjoy every bit of your wedding.
