Blending Culture

On May 19th, the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle marked a monumental moment in wedding history of blending cultures on the big day. The lovely couple took this opportunity of coming from different backgrounds to make their day represent each of them but also update the traditionally stuffy past of royal English weddings. Most couples wish to represent both cultures on their big day but may be unsure how to go about doing it.

D├ęcor is a great way to show both sides of your culture and heritage. This can be done with small details throughout the room such as vases or candles, the types of flowers used in your reception space, or even your wedding colors. Traditional culture prints may also be available for your napkins or place cards.

Food is personally my favorite part of any event. By offering different food stages that each have different traditional cuisine, it gives a more personal feel and helps your guest see the type of food you were familiar with when growing up. Another spin on this would be to make your signature cocktails a traditional cocktail that aligns with your heritage.

Ceremonial details may be brought in from both sides. One side may have a traditional dance done at weddings or celebrations to show their excitement. Another may have traditional outfits instead of the well-known white gown and suit. A couple may switch into these different outfits for their wedding photos or reception. Research your significant others culture to see what you feel comfortable with incorporating into your wedding.   

Music can be a very emotionally moving element. Traditional music from different cultures may be played while the bride is walking down the aisle or in the reception space. Music has a way of making us feel immersed in its message and may help your guests better connect to these different cultures.
