My Fiance and I are in the midst planning out wedding. I may be mexican but I am a country girl at heart. I grew up camping with the family, spending weeks at the lake and fishing. My life pretty much revolves around country music. My Fi developed his country roots when he started persuing Fire Fighting. He chews tobacco, drives a truck , works with his hands and the soundtrack to our romance/life’s has been Coutry Music.
So I want a rustic country wedding reception with Mason Jars, Burlap, Sunflowers, globe lights, country music and boots. My family has been fighting me every step of the way and now he is starting to side with them. I showed his an idea for a first song, Miranda Lambert: Makin’ Plans and suggested a country two step and he said that now i am going too far with the country theme. I am so frustrated and need people to help me figure out a way to tell my family that this is really improtant to me with out hurting their feelings. Help!!!!

I know how you feel as I am also latina and in terms of music I have no clue what i will play! I would say do what YOU and your fiance want the most and your fam should understand. I think the country theme sounds lovely and really matches your personalities. I would either go for it, or try to find a happy medium if you really want to please your family. Good Luck! 🙂

I am Mexican. It is hard when you’re guests are so diverse and when you yourself are so diverse. I know how you feel, but do what you want to do. You will be fine as long as you make guests feel comfortable and appreciated. Don’t ask for opinions if you don’t want them, which was something I did at the very beginning. At the end, I ended up doing what I wanted. Be polite to people’s suggestions, but do what will make you happy. This is a one in a time celebration. Make sure to come to the same terms with your future hubby though:) best wishes!

Well I am boricua and my fiance is not but might as well be lol, but he is mostly white. We also spent some time down South together. So we will have some country music and our first dance will probably be a country one. I’m sure the family will be a little weirded out (both sides) but then again maybe not. I am mixing up the music because of the crazy amount of different tastes there are going to be. I say go with your wedding theme but switch up the music so everyone can be happy, keep your song if you and your Fiance want it. Talk to your family and say that this is important to you but see if maybe you could met them halfway and give them something they want too. Its your wedding but your family will be there so it might make them feel more comfortable to have things they are familiar with. Just don’t comprimise to the point where they are taking over your day. Pick and choose your battles.
I went to a wedding in Texas that was some sort of latino (not sure which didn’t know them that well I’m guessing Mexican though) and the bride did have the more classic theme but they switched up the music between latino music, hip hop and country and even did a two step at one point. My Fiance and I were suffering a bit of culture shock because we had never been to a wedding like that but we thought oh when in Rome (Texas) lol. A good time was had by all.
