Planning an inter-religion wedding can be tricky. The concept of interfaith marriages is not new to the society. Love has no religion, so why must marriage? It is lovely to see people from two different faiths come together as one. The challenge is planning the wedding without hurting the sentiments of either families. Both families have expectations, hence special care is needed to make arrangements.
If you are a couple looking for ways to successfully conduct an inter-religious wedding ceremony, here are tips you may consider.
Each religion has its own rituals and customs, they are important to families following them. Respecting this will help you stay away from developing any negative feelings. Creating space for each others traditions can help you create a good fusion.
Have two invitation cards
In India, every community has their own style of wedding invites and so does every religion. In case of an inter religion wedding, you can choose to create a neutral multi faith card. But if you wish to send your guests something that depicts your culture, the bride and groom can have two cards created in their own styles.
Pre-decide marriage rituals
Have regular meetings before the marriage to discuss details about how the marriage ceremony would be conducted. Decisions must have consensus from both sides. You can even have a registered marriage instead of following religious traditions.
Have a tie
Both the families might want the marriage to be conducted as per all the rituals of their respective religion. You can conduct the wedding twice, respecting both the faiths. Have one ceremony in the morning and one in the evening. Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza, did the same. It is a great way to respect everyone’s sentiments.
Understand the traditions
As soon as your plan falls into place, learnabout each others customs. If you understand the significance, you will feel more involved, and will enjoy the wedding better. It will also bring you and your partner closer.
