Bilingual Wedding Invitations

It’s common for multicultural weddings to use bilingual wedding invitations.  Often times couples will choose to have either one invitation with both languages or two separate invitations. If you are doing a single wedding invitation, you may choose to have one language on the front and one on the back. Another option is to have both languages side by side.  If you’re thinking of going a different route and like the idea of two different invitations, I suggest coordinating colors and themes or matching the two completely. Here are a few ideas to help you achieve your desired look.

Multi-Cultural/Fusion Wedding Etiquette
Be a Good Guest

Are you planning on attending a Multicultural/Fusion wedding? If so, we have some tips to help you be the perfect wedding guest!

Multicultural Indian weddings  usually include two ceremonies, here are a few dos and don’ts.

  • Never wear black or white, unless otherwise noted, as they represent mourning.
  • Be colorful but conservative. No plunging necklines or open shoulders.
  • Carry along a scarf or handkerchief, as it may be customary to cover your head during the ceremony.

Mazel tov! Attending a Jewish fusion wedding?

  • Dress moderately, avoid sleeveless, open back, or short dresses.
  • Ladies, be careful wearing white. Leave that for the blushing bride.
  • Try to stick to monetary gifts or items that can be easily returned.

Chinese a go go!

  • Avoid wearing red.  This is a color that is sacred and for the bride.
  • When giving gifts, make sure that what your giving is not considered unlucky.
  • Always remember to thank the bride and groom for allowing you to share in their joyous celebration.

If your planning on attending a fusion wedding, have fun, enjoy yourself, and remember…stay classy!
