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 kele wele for their ghanaian. We are going to additionally be making small booklets about the places our families result from (dublin, st thomas, accra & takoradi)to put from the tables to make certain that guests that aren’t acquainted with our countries will understand much more by the finish associated with time.
We also considered changing into ghanaian old-fashioned gown, but as a bonus bride (im ordinarily regarding the big gorgeous brides forum) I do believe ill be that in deep love with just just just how good i appearance in my own dress i wont wish to simply take it off-ever, ive already told h2b im resting with it, so that the consumation will have to wait till the following day, i’ll wish to feel an attractive princess so long as poss.
I have talked to my h2b about getting a hip life dj, but he is said he will handle all of that. My mum’s hiring a ciedhl (irish band), 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 webpage, well the men might but they’d have to act! He might have recommended a soca that is good or steal musical organization, however it has got to go on it into the extreme!
I’ve perhaps maybe maybe not ventured onto this forum prior to, but I may pop in once more once in a while. Best of luck along with your wedding preparations
