- Wedding: September 2014
Hello bees! My parents are from Ethiopia but I was raised in the USA in an Orthodox church. Fiance is American AA raised in a Methodist church. So while we “look” the same, our families cultures are completely different. We’re going to have a mostly traditional, elegant, American wedding. I’m wondering how I can incorporate as much of the Ethiopian culture into the wedding as possible. Where are some areas that Bees found the easiest to change in an American wedding?
So far I’ve come up with the following:
1.American Bridal dress/Ethiopian Bridesmaid dresses
2.Garden ceremony/nondenominational officiant
3.Have both Ethiopian and American food if the venue allows outside catering
