I think a translator is a good idea for the ceremony. ( I've been to weddings where the priest translated from the native language to English) For the toast I think it is beautiful to have it in your native language.
Good Luck :)

We are getting married in Switzerland.  Most of my FI's side speak English, but his parents do not!!  I think that most of the public speaking will done by bilingual people so they speak in English and German.  I also plan on throwing in other languages of the guests to highlight diversity.  If anything seems to confusing, my FI can translate for everyone.  I have been to a few weddings that were in German and not knowing the language allowed me enjoy the wedding in different ways and notice other things (like the ambiance, environment, sites, and smells).
