The time has come. I need some help. So we are currently planning our wedding & picked out a venue for the reception that does not have a ceremony area. We are hoping to go ahead and use the reception venue as a ceremonial venue but my fiancé's family is catholic and they keep going on and on that you need to get married civilly and by the church. I'd rather not get married in a church because it adds extra cost & it seems harder to customize the ceremony how you'd like it especially since we will have a translator so both sides of our families can understand what is going on. Has anyone done a Hispanic/American wedding with a catholic & non-denominational Christain because I need some help! Another thing I'd like for y'all to know is my fiancé is not religious so I'm getting a bit frustrated that we MUST get married in a church according to them. Can someone please make some suggestions I don't know what to do.
