How should we have the ceremony if his family speaks English and my family speaks only Spanish?

My fiance is Caucasian, I am Mexican so any ideas would be great.

A bi-lingual minister would be great, as well as bi-lingual emcee (or two emcees) at the reception. You can also incorporate traditions into your celebration.

My sister had the same problem when she got married. What she did was she got a priest that spoke both spanish and english, he did eveything in both languages. She even had the scriptures she had chosen read in both languages. It was a beautiful wedding. But I definitely do not think that you should choose one language over another, Like the other person said incorporate both. It will make it just that much more romantic.

Have your priest/ wedding offical speak both during the ceremony, each line, one in Englsih, then in Spanish, or have a translator also stand next to him/her and have them go back and forth. One of the prettiest things I had ever heard was the Our Father prayer in Spanish, incorperate both languages in your ceremony, it's all in the language of love. :)
