This topic is definitely more stressful than I thought!
So, my fiance (i love him so much :] ) is Chinese and I am Filipino (Catholic). He agreed to get married at my church and we were dreaming about having this great reception with all our family and friends after at a lovely catering hall...great right?!...well...
Not until his mom insisted that he also has a Chinese banquet reception. Fine, I'll do that too....but the problem is...his mom wants to do it on the SAME DAY! So it would be our Saturday morning church ceremony, followed by our afternoon reception at a catering hall celebration, followed by the Chinese banquet dinner (with that 10 course meal!). Sounds like it will be a tiring day!
I don't know if this is even a good idea! I tried to ask him to ask his mother to have the Chinese banquet on a different day...but she says it's "bad luck" to have 2 wedding ceremonies. I'm not sure what to do...i have a year and a half till our wedding date (June 2011) to try and convince her to change the date. ADVICE PLEASE LADIES! THANKS!
