Inter Ethnic Wedding Dress, Which Is Right? by Years(m): 9:38am On Oct 03, 2014
How do I get this right? My wedding ceremony is coming up few weeks from now Buh I have a problem with dressing in the right attire. This is an inter ethnic traditional wedding, and I was told by the bride's family to dress in their native dress Buh I don't want to wear another tribe's attire because I feel I should be in my own attire as well show casing were I'm from which is the main essences of the union (two diff tribes coming together).
But since I know little about inter ethnic weddings I really want your candid opinion and experience on how's it's done. Thanks

I don't know a thing about inter-ethnic weddings but I think you should dress in your desired attire. And your wife in hers. It's your wedding after all.

I don't actually know about parts in traditional weddings Buh I intend to perform the traditional rights in the morning while church wedding will start by noon. So I might not have the privilege of changing cloths
Buh thAnks for the insight

Exactly what I thought Buh I'm just been attacked from both families of what is norm and what's traditional that's my issue here .
