I don’t think you have to worry about too much. I’m not from the UK, but know there are a lot of Muslims there. In the States, it’s pretty easy to throw a Muslim wedding as long as you are even remotely hooked in to the local Muslim communities in your area. 

I’m also a little curious, what do you mean when you say you want an Muslim influence in your wedding but it’s going to be a European marriage? I don’t think those things are mutually exclusive since there are probably millions of married Muslims in Europe who don’t separate the idea…

FWIW, I’m really not trying to come accross as standoffish, I’m just trying to understand what you’re saying/ planning to do?

Are you muslim? Or is your FI’s family muslim? If you’re trying to plan an interfaith wedding, I think your future inlaws might be a great place to start. Certainly, they would be able to tell you what they feel are the most important aspects that need to be included in a wedding for it to feel “real” and “official” for them. Plus, they might have a great handle on places you can buy certain things.

Good luck!

A wedding is a wedding…there is no ‘symbolism’ in Islam, this means you can have your general wedding cards (Im opting for a very vintage glam look), but for an ‘Islamic’ wedding it would be advisable not to have the ‘non-Islamic’ elements like wine, pork, music (Nasheeds are amazing and compliant), dancing, cleavage flying, mini skirts etc while his family is around. Thats basically it. Everything else is cultural/traditional and thats a separate issue. As long as you stick to the basics, Im sure you can have the wedding you want!

Good Luck!
