3 Tips to Throw a Multicultural Wedding, Honolulu, Hawaii

Love is a universal language, making unions between two people from different cultures extra special. However, it can be tricky to celebrate two cultures in a single wedding venue if you don’t plan carefully. Here are three tips for throwing a multicultural wedding that everyone will enjoy. 

A Guide to Hosting a Multicultural Wedding

1. Educate Yourselves

Every culture has its take on what should happen on the big day. A Hawaiian groom might exchange lei with his wife, while a Chinese bride may open a lucky red envelope from her parents after a special tea ceremony. 

Before you start planning everything from the food to the venue, spend some time as a couple learning about one another’s cultural wedding traditions. Decide which customs you want to include and how you want to perform them on your wedding day. 

2. Get Family Members Involved 

venueMany cultural traditions are passed down from generation to generation, so make your parents and significant family members part of your wedding. Whether you want to borrow heirloom jewelry to wear while you say your vows or have a family member sing a song unique to your culture, asking for help will incorporate your culture and loved ones. 

3. Don’t Try To Do Too Much

While many cultures have dozens of wedding traditions, don’t feel pressured to include them all. It’s your day, and you can pick and choose what you want.

Give equal attention to each culture, so one set of ideas and values doesn’t overwhelm the other. During dry runs of the wedding ceremony, time how various long customs take, so the event doesn’t feel one-sided.
