Planning a wedding can be an exciting and fulfilling experience, but at the same time, it can be a little overwhelming. Especially if you are planning a cross-cultural wedding! India is a mix of more cultures you can count on one hand, and now more than ever, love doesn’t recognize the boundaries of geography or language. One of the things that make India so unique is the myriad of cultures and traditions it has. Every state in India has a different culture and tradition. That is just India and its cultures though! 

Think about all the ones that come from different parts of the world. Cross-Culture weddings don’t just have to be Indian customs and traditions, they can also be with cultures from across the globe. Having planned and executed multiple weddings like these, we do have some tricks up our sleeve. Here are a few pointers you can keep in mind to execute the perfect cross-cultural wedding:

Consider the different traditions that will be present at your wedding, and choose a venue that can cater to all of them. If you’re having people travel from across the country or the world, a venue closer to the city’s airport might be a good option. But if you have family from all across the city as well, then try to choose a venue that’s in the middle of everything. Certain cultures in India need a closed mantap for a wedding and some wedding themes might make you want to get married outdoors. Keeping all these factors in mind will also help determine if you need an open venue or a closed one. 

Plan Ahead for Different Customs and Traditions

Before you start planning your wedding, research the customs and traditions of the different cultures that will be present at your wedding. This will help you plan the different ceremonies and events and ensure that everyone feels included. Even though rituals differ according to culture, each family carries them differently, so check with the elders on following customs and traditions. Traditions that are non-Indian may add a fun element to your event and a happy surprise to the family who has traveled from abroad. Trying to incorporate these small additions will make the wedding more special and personal.

Create a fusion menu that incorporates different cuisines and flavors to cater to everyone’s tastes. Make sure to take note of everyone’s likes and dislikes, and most importantly make sure no one has allergic reactions to the ingredients. You could also put up little cards stating what ingredients are used so guests are better informed.

Music and dance are an essential part of any Indian wedding. Consider incorporating multiple genres of music and dance into your wedding events to celebrate the different cultures of your wedding. A mashup is a great way to add to the mix. Adding the famous Naatu Naatu song that has global recognition to the mix is also a great way to bring both cultures together.

Communicate with Your Guests
