Guest Post: Making a Multicultural Wedding Work!

You’ve finally decided to settle down next to the most wonderful person on the planet, and you set a date for your Big Day! There is so much to do, from picking the right venue and trying to book your favorite band, to trying to talk the price of those flowers down.

With all that on your mind, the last thing you want to think about is the fact that you somehow have to make a multicultural wedding work. Unfortunately, this has to be one of the topmost entries on your to-do list, especially if your romance is interracial.

Interracial romance is a wonderful thing because you have more than one country and more than one town that you can call ‘home’, and the best part is that interracial babies are the most adorable babies in the whole wide world. However, when it comes to your Big Day, both the bride’s and the groom’s side want to see their cultures equally represented. And that is putting it lightly.

Your best bet is to follow our simple yet killer tricks that will knock everyone’s socks off and give you a wedding that you’ve always dreamed of.

Real Bride Tales: My Travel-themed Bridal Shower

My bridal shower was planned by my maid of honor and bridesmaids, with the assistance of my mum and fiancé. Involving my mum in the planning process was extremely helpful, as she was the main link of the coordination required for the surprise.

Months before the actual day, I shared my guest list along with a list of ideas that I would like as the theme. In the options listed, there were various cities mentioned which is why a couple of my friends decided to host a travel-themed shower. This included the elements of a few themes that I suggested and turned out to be the perfect theme, especially since I love travelling and exploring the world!

Since my mum was aware of the shower and the theme, she asked the designer to design my dress accordingly. There were different elements from London & Paris incorporated into my dress that went well with the theme.

I was expecting the bridal shower to be held on the weekend around my birthday (January), but it was planned for mid November. It took place at Plantation, Sofitel Hotel in JBR and the weather was just perfect to host an outdoor event. All in all I’d say that it was planned and executed very well by all my friends and was a pleasant surprise.
