I am having a destination wedding in Las Vegas. My fiance's father and mother-in-law will be flying in for the wedding from China. I'm so excited because I've been to China twice and they are wonderful people and we got along well (except for the language barrier.. I'm American, only speak English :P), they already treat me like their own daughter, and this is their first time coming to the US.
So where it gets a little crazy is here- our wedding is on July 9th, and they are coming to stay with us here in Dallas for 3 months! (they are planning to get here May 20, and stay well past the wedding.) This stresses me out a little because I am the sole income right now so I work alot, and I'm trying to get all the wedding details together, but then I also have to worry about making sure they stay entertained while here.
Where I really need help is:
1) What type of gifts would you recommend I have for them when they come to the US? (every time I went to China they showered me with gifts.. but I don't know where to start- it seems everything here in US is made in China :P)
2) How can I be sure they are comfortable during their stay? Should I get a Chinese newspaper delivered to our house weekly/daily? Should I call my cable company to see if I can order Chinese cable channels?
3) Should I really be stressed about keeping them entertained? I've heard that in the Chinese family tradition, the parents are just worried about taking care of their kids so while they are here I will probably never have to worry about cooking or cleaning. That kind of makes me feel weird though considering I've been self-reliant since I was 15.
4) How would you manage the stress?
Thanks for listening, any encourage words? I really appreciate it! I really want them to enjoy their trip, I want it to be a great experience for them (wedding and all), but I also want to maintain my sanity before/during my wedding.
