Wait so your wedding was done PR style and you wanted it done American style? 

I grew up in Vieques but haven’t been there for a while, I was born stateside.  FI is white but he respects the PR culture and knows Spanish, so he doesn’t mind incorporating the PR traditions.

If you wanted it to be more American I guess he should have backed off and let you do some American things. Like have some say you know. 🙁  Who paid for the wedding?  Usually whoever pays gets the say.

I want to do a blend but its easier when there are two different cultures, its too bad that you weren’t able to get more of what you wanted out of it.  My mom is white and my dad is Rican and my mom was disapointed that Abuelo spoke in English instead of Spanish during the ceremony.

You think maybe at some point you guys can have an American Vow Renewal so that you can still get that experience?

That is cuckoo.  At least you got what you wanted though.  Just let them complain.  Funny because for my wedding we don’t have a caterer, we are cooking it beforehand with help from family because we are picky lol.  And we know we won’t get a caterer to make what we want.

I think famillies always butt into things, I’m letting my family have some say because we haven’t had a wedding for so long.  But putting my foot down on the things that matter.
