I concur with Antony-Paul on this.

If she wishes to become Orthodox it is a commitment, and I don't think offering the extra wedding is the right way to go about it.

I was reading on another forum a few days ago about a young Coptic girl in America whose fiance was considering baptism. She was worried that he was just considering Baptism so they could get married. Someone asked if he would have joined the Orthodox Church if they were no together, and this pretty much killed the conversation.

You need to think about whether your wife would consider Orthodoxy for what it offers her in itself, rather than tempting her into it she needs to be willing to become Orthodox in herself.
