Asian Weddings

Bilingual DJs

edited June 2016 in Asian Weddings
After looking high and low for a DJ/MC with the right price and services, my mom insists I find a DJ/MC who also speaks Cantonese, as many of my family members are Cantonese speaking only. My fiance and I however, do not want that. 

I have been to bilingual weddings, and not only do I feel like it is awkward; it interrupts the flow of the wedding (Translating a joke after everyone laughs, stopping to translate during wedding games, etc.). I want to be fair and considerate to the Cantonese-speaking guests, but I also want a good experience for our own wedding.

I have thought about limiting the Cantonese to announcements only, and providing Chinese programs. I'm just frustrated by the limited choices of DJs I can now choose from. 

How can I approach this situation where all parties can benefit somehow?
