A fun dinner — maybe outside on a beach?

Are you the only ones who speak both spanish and english?

My Maid/Matron of Honor is getting married in 2 weeks, and her extended family speaks only spanish, while all of his family speaks only english.  There are several people who speak both (her immediate family, some friends, and me), so we’re going to act as liaisons for the non-english speakers.

as for mingling, she is putting simple games & board games on the tables – games that don’t require too much verbal interaction.  You can do a lot without saying anything!

If both your families are dancers, you dont need to talk to dance. I’m sure everyone would have fun.

If you want to have your reception in the Bahamas, then you could go to a restaurant…they may let you book a private room, or the patio, or some such (though that’ll probably be expensive).

If you want to have a reception at home, then I vote for a backyard BBQ/picnic at the local park.

In terms of the language barrier…dancing. And you and your groom must be prepared to translate.

I agree with good music!  Also as favors you can get them all a spanish/english dictionary or even translate the ceremony for the english/spanish speakers.  Good luck!!
