For the past year, my fiancee and I have been trying to plan our wedding, but we always come to a hault by the fact that my family is Catholic and I am a Christian. My family raised me as a Mexican Catholic (it's somewhat different than other Catholics- so I've been told). When I told them I was a Christian all hell broke loose. My family started to tell me not to let my fiance change who I am (which is not true), and the worst was my mother telling me that I was going to hell for turning my back on "my true religion"...
A year later, my mom and older sister are still trying to tell me to "come back to them," while I'm trying to plan a Christian wedding that will accomadate everyone as much as possible without crossing the line.
Can anyone please offer some suggestions as to how we can accomodate my family so they don't feel offended? There are some customs that my mother needs to have part of the ceremony, and I was going to ask our pastor about it. However, is there anything that I can ask him about?
Any help and encourangement would help and would be welcome with open arms.
