Hello to any vietnamese/south east asian bees out there 🙂
my Fiance is vietnamese-american, he doesn’t really follow vietnamese culture since he was born and raised here but his parents stick to their culture most of the time. they’re catholic which makes things easier, since I’m catholic as well.
but here’s where I need advice: I’ve gotten along with his parents the whole 3 years we’ve dated. his mom has always been very sweet to me even though I had heard that asian moms can be scary at times (stereotypical comments). His parents have offered to pay for the reception since they’re really well off in the money department. I am very grateful and appreciative of this, however his mom has already picked a reception venue without even consulting me. this made me very upset and my Fiance told me that’s just how his mom is and that’s how she was raised..
we’re talking to them this wednesday so I can let her know that I want a say in my wedding and I want to show her the reception venue that I found, I have all the pricing info and pictures.
what is the most respectful way to go about letting her know that even tho I appreciate her paying for the reception, it is my wedding day, mine and her son’s, so we should get a say in it too..
p.s. the venue I chose is cheaper than hers… it’s more my style, her venue is an asian restaurant that a lot of asians have their weddings at. I have never been there, Fiance says it’s really big and nice.
thanks for any advice 🙂
