@PinkAndPearls2013:  Haha this is a funny position to be in since even your Fiance doesn’t speak Spanish! I definitely agree having their invitations in Spanish and a few “special” programs you made just for them – maybe also having one of them doing a Spanish reading? Especially something close to FI’s family? Especially if it is a surprise on the day. Also thanking them in the speech for coming so far to celebrate with you.

We will have a similar situation. As ParisM suggested we will have family members from both the uS and germany reading something in their own language during the Ceremony. My father will have his speech in German and English and also we are trying to combine rituals from both countries. Our candy bar will include sweets from germany and sweets from America – thats a nice idea for both sides. Everything written (invitation, chuch booklets, …) will be in two languages next or under each other). We are lucky that we found a native speaker priest in germany so we will have the ceremony mixed up. We choose songs you can sing in german and english and try to mix it up…
