My fiance and I are also having communion.  And like yourself, we are doing it right after the unity candle and before we are pronounced husband and wife.  Are you using any special music?

We are also doing communion, and since we are catholic, we will be exercising the “prayer to MAry” which many people don’t do anymore… I will be collecting individual flowers from significant women in my life and FI’s life, and placing them at the altar of Mary, asking for a blessing as wife and mother.  I am really excited for this part of the ceremony.

@miss-spunkin:  When both the bride and groom are Catholic, it’s my experience that they usually opt for a full nuptial mass with communion.  If one of the couple is not Christian, a lot of times they’ll skip communion to avoid making that person and their whole family “uncomfortable” at the ceremony.

Ours is a full Catholic mass as well, so I don’t think there’s a single thing about ours that isn’t religious!  I’m not sure about other religions, but the unity candle isn’t a traditional Catholic thing and doesn’t have any religious significance either.

There’s a nice tradition from FI’s Mexican heritage to bring flowers to the Virgin Mary (at which point the singer often sings Ave Maria) that I was thinking of incorporating into our ceremony.  Any excuse to have Ave Maria at our wedding is good!  ๐Ÿ˜€

Ahh so you’re Protestant.  Smile  It’s an interesting coincidence that you mention the difference between the two churches…  I recently learned that the bride being “given away” by her father is a tradition that still stands in Protestantism but not in Catholicism.  Apparently for Catholics, the father of the bride is just there as an escort!

And LOL yeah Catholic masses can run over an hour depending on how fast the priest speaks.  O_o

I think having communion together on your wedding day is a really special thing to share, especially because it’s one of the first things you do as a married couple.  Thanks for this post; it’s made me excited for our first communion as a couple too.  <3

@ miss-spunkin: We are using the song, “Come and Listen” by David Crowder.  Two former students of mine are performing it.  One singing and the other playing the piano.
