two weddings

When ONE wedding just isn’t enough, sometimes folks have two weddings! The reasons can range from intercultural issues to geographical distances…

Why we had two weddings to avoid family drama

Are you thinking about having two weddings? Whether it’s to celebrate your multicultural union or protect your mental health, here are a few reasons why you should feel empowered to throw a wedding more than once!

A colorful and multicultural Indian and Vietnamese wedding

The couple had a gorgeous Indian and Vietnamese wedding that spanned two weeks! From the red lehenga to the ao dai wedding attire, this multicultural celebration is filled with color and cultural traditions.

We had a super secret commitment ceremony before our legal wedding. We leaned into the “super secret” aspect, so our theme was “super secret spies”. Instead of invitations we sent dossier packages with code names for our guests and GPS coordinates for the location of our ceremony.

For our mental health, we had two weddings

As an introvert, I envisioned a private and intimate wedding. My fiance, being the extrovert and community-minded person he is, wanted a big party. Our version of a compromise was simply to do both: We got married twice.

We’re planning two weddings: family-friendly AND kink-friendly

One of things my fiancé and I most cherish about our relationship is that we lead the kind of double-life worthy of one of the superhero comic books he loves so much. Normally, we are responsible, hard-working citizens who live and parent together in a small, quiet town. But after a quick change in a phone booth (aka, when my ex has the kids and we travel), we become adventurers well-versed in kink and non-monogamy who love to find weird bars, get tattoos, and go out dancing until the wee hours of the morning.

So it stands to reason that we have to plan not one but two weddings…

South Carolina Lowcountry meets the colors of India in this two-day wedding

Elizabeth grew up in Charleston and wanted to incorporate the classic, southern style of the Lowcountry. Sriram grew up in India and they both wanted to make sure that his culture was well-represented. So we’re talking the addition of a mandap for the ceremony, a two-day split celebration, and lots of Southern-inspired holiday details.
