What to do?
My Fi is Argentinean and his immediate family plus some friends are flying here (Washington state) for the wedding. They all speak a tiny bit of English but only one or two people are fluent enough to know what's going on. I want to show how much we appreciate them coming to support us, and I don't want them to feel lost throughout the whole process. However, basically none of my family or friends speak more than a few words of Spanish; I would even say that some older members of my family (who I have to invite) are a tiny bit racist (there is a large Mexican population in my area and unfortunately some people interpret things attributed to that group as applicable to all Hispanics). They would certainly never say or outwardly show anything to them, but I know they would be uncomfortable with any major portions of, well, anything to do with the wedding in Spanish. How do I make everyone feel as comfortable as possible? How do I deal with trying to deal with a wedding and helping these guests with their (for many, their first) visit to the US? Normally my Fi and I function as translators, but we will be too busy and I don't know who else can do it!
Should I try to ask someone I know not in the wedding party to be a "generally helpful translator"? Should I stick to English for everything and hope they can follow along? Should I just not worry about it?
Anyone with experience with this, your advice would be much appreciated!
