My fiance is muslim, i’m not!! I honestly don’t see myself converting but I respect what he believes. Our wedding ceremony is non-religious but I want to do something for him in honor of what he believes…any suggestions?

I am not religious but I will be using my mother’s rosary to wrap my bouquet. Maybe you could incorporate a star and crescent somehow into your bouquet wrap? If you could find something like this, you could use it as a tribute to his faith. But ask him how he feels about it first to make sure he doesn’t have a problem with it. I think it’s sweet that you want to honor him in that way.

My husband is Mormon and I am Catholic, but we decided to go non-denominational on the ceremony. We did however, incorporate a prayer into the ceremony that seemed to satiate both sides of our family. It wasn’t a big deal to us though. We both believe in God, but the similarities end there.

You could have some traditional stuff incorporated into teh reception, is there a specific kind of food that is particular to his faith, a prayer, music, anything small that he can recognise and sppreciate.
My fiance and I are the same and I will incorparate some of his music into the reception.

My Fiance is not Muslim but I was raised in the religion and it is an important part of my mother’s life. What I am going to do is have the Imam from the Masque I grew up in marry us.. It is a modified ceremony so as not to be heavily religious but it adds that touch that will be perfect for my mom. I would suggest a simple prayer…perhaps a short surrah reading and blessing at the end of your ceremony. Blessings are universal and i think everyone would appreciate that 🙂
