Background: I am a born and raised white American girl. My fiance is Chinese-American with two chinese parents.
Current Wedding Plans: Almost two years away. Rehersal "dim sum" breakfast Friday, Saturday morning a wedding at 8am-ish breakfast reception afterwords, leave that day or the next for the honeymoon.
Cultures: I have stated that I am happy to encorporate traditions of both cultures ("east meets west") into the wedding (wearing red at the reception, having a red silk instead of a guest book, puting the double happiness sign on everything...)
The surprise: MIL informed me that FIL will be holding a banquet (second reception) the night of the day we get married (not asked, informed). I apparently do not have to do anything accept show up because he is planning this and putting it together.
I am focusing on looking at this as a lovely gift, but I wanted to know if there was any imput from other brides who might have a better idea of what this means? I still feel a little weird about having this told to me.
Feel free to send your thoughts!
