Hi, im mixed-irish/jamaican, but my h2b is ghanaian(created uk but was raised over there and returned in belated teenagers). We looked for venues that would allow you to bring your own caterers, but they either charged pretty much the same as it would to have them cater, wouldnt allow it, or were social club type venues and we wanted something nicer when we first started planning.
We have been compromising now and achieving canapes that mirror our countries- soft drink bread and butter for my irish, bun & cheese for my jamaican, and wele that is kele his ghanaian. We shall additionally be making small booklets about the places our families result from (dublin, st thomas, accra & takoradi)to put in the tables making sure that guests which are not knowledgeable about our countries will know much more because of the end associated with the time.
We additionally considered changing into ghanaian old-fashioned gown, but as a bonus bride (im generally in the big stunning brides forum) I believe ill be that in deep love with just how good i appearance in my own dress i wont desire to simply take it off-ever, ive already told h2b im resting in it, so that the consumation will have to wait till the following day, i’ll desire to feel an attractive princess as long as poss.
I have talked to my h2b about obtaining a hip life dj, but he is explained he will cope with all that. My mum’s hiring a ciedhl (irish band), www.colombianbrides.org/ but my h2b believes getting an african party team in is using it a bit far, he stated like they didnt or get a good beating from their other halves if we do we need to get some bashment and some yardie dancers!! -but i dont think many of our guest would approve, well the men might but they’d have to act! He might have recommended an excellent soca team or steal musical organization, however it needs to go on it to your extreme!
I have maybe maybe not ventured onto this forum prior to, but I may pop in once more once in a while. All the best along with your wedding preparations
