Language woes

If one is a Russian speaking individual like myself and decides to have a wedding, one somewhat important question comes to mind: who to invite.

A Russian speaking individual will--in the case being discussed--have Russian speaking relatives and Russian speaking friends. Which is dandy.

So what's the problem, you ask? The problem is in the overwhelming majority of Russian speaking guests and a tiny minority of almost-oblivious-to-Russian American guests.

The ceremony would be conducted in Russian. Most of the conversation threads would also be in Russian.

All thoughts and suggestions are welcome.
