You would think that today it would be easier than ever to integrate someone of a different faith or culture into your family. I’m finding that the opposite is true. In working with my cross-cultural clients I’ve discovered that while we’re exposed to other cultures more than ever, some families still experience a hard time accepting your relationship.
A lot of times when emotions take you by surprise it leads to overwhelm. This inevitably leads to paralysis and you start to ignore your responsibilities to your wedding. As the clock keeps ticking the overdue tasks will only start to weigh you down. Having a planner by your side will make each stage easier to navigate through as well as will keep the planning moving along even if you aren’t quite ready to hop back into the process.
In this post I’m going to walk you through a Jewish marriage ceremony we planned for our Indian-Jewish-American client. This wedding example in particular was more Jewish centric because the bride’s family was planning their Indian inspired wedding in India set to be a few months after their American wedding.
