Deaf guests

I was wondering if anyone planned to have an interpreter for their wedding? Or has ever attended one with an interpreter? My parents are both deaf as are a few of my Aunts and Uncles. I'm trying to figure out where an interpreter could stand so my guests could see both me AND the interpreter. I'm probably going to say and sign my vows and possibly teach my fiancé to do the same but I'd like to have someone interpret the rest.

Any thoughts/ideas/experience to share?

Xposted for sure.

We're having another colleague interpret ours. So far I think she will stand outside the wedding party, with the wedding party being on the left. That way she can hear but not interrupt in bridesmaid duties.

I would definately keep the interpreter to the slight left of the bridesmaids. That way, your family will be able to see the interpreter just fine, and they'll have a good view of you, too!

Congratulations. :D
