@AngieN: I am having a Catholic wedding also, and our priest won’t meet with us either!! Apparently he is very overwhelmed with too many responsibilities and doesn’t meet with couples?  I don’t feel like this is normal, but I don’t really know what to do about it.  We are getting married at a chuch where we are not parishioners so I dont know if its just the way this church does things or what. We have a woman that is helping coordinate all the other details at the church, but what will he talk about during the ceremony?? I guess just give generic marriage advice and not say anything personal about us? 

Everything else is going pretty well, I NEED to work on the programs.  Have you created yours yet?

ha, I am having a Catholic December wedding too! I am doing okay. However, I don’t like the musician the church has selected, so I am hoping to talk the church’s little Christian youth band(they are so amazing!) into doing our wedding. I hope it works out! 

I still need to get in touch with a florist/hire one. Then find a makeup artist. I hate this constant checklist thing going on….. I sometimes wish I had just eloped to French Polynesia or something….sigh…. I mailed my invitations this week, my dress arrived(yay!) and so needs to be altered, way too big in the chest… We also have to deal with our honeymoon this week.

I’m having an internal struggle with programs. Yes, no? Why should I? It’s just more money. Considering it’s going to just be a small 30 minute ceremony I don’t really think it’s necessary. We’ve mailed out invitations and so far I haven’t heard a peep from anyone about them, which I didn’t expect. But I’m sure I’ll have lots of mail come next week with the RSVPs.

I wasn’t completely convinced about the need for programs all along either, but with a full Catholic mass I think its more necessary.  I also think the programs are a great way to “honor” the people involved in the wedding – it lists all the members of the wedding party, anyone else involved in the ceremony, etc.  Also I plan on writing a little thank you note in there and honoring our relatives that have passed away.  I will also probably put our address on their for guest’s reference.  I think this is a great way to communicate with your guests on the day of.
