would it be too much to have someone speak English and also their language?

Could you do parts of it in both languages? Like maybe the readings or parts of your vows?

I don’t think you should feel bad, I think you should definitely have the mass in your language. I just think it would be a nice touch to pay tribute to their language by doing some of it in spanish 🙂

I went to a quinceanera (15 b-day/latin tradition) where the mass was in spanish but the readings were in English and it was a beautiful little birthday ceremony. I know it’s a lot different than a wedding. I mean it’s your wedding how would you like it to be?

mine will mostly be in english, even though most of my and my parents guests will be korean… my pastor is korean american, so hopefully he’ll ease it over with a lil korean thrown in there… 🙂

Fiance is caucasian, and it DID NOT make sense for us to have the ceremony in korean!

first and foremost have the ceremony in a language both you and your FH understand. if you would like they can have a translator to echo your vows in spanish as well for the more fluent spanish speakers in the audience.

Mama knows best!  I agree w/ her.  YOU & YOUR FIANCE are the ones getting married.  It’s most important that the language be in the language you both understand.
