    The priest usually tells the congregation when to stand, when to sit, because they know not everyone in attendance is Catholic. Also, I think it’s pretty easy for people to know what to do since everyone else is doing it.

    i would keep it simple. most everyone at our wedding was family but there were a few dozen non catholics in the crowd…they will figure it out, and i had my priest say things they will just watch and do what everyone else is doing.

    you could also have your priest do it, like say “you may now be seated” or “please kneel” when the time comes….

    I am catholic, but I have a lot of friends who go to catholic weddings and have no clue what to do.I’d make it as detailed as possible.


    One of my friends was recently a bridesmaid and didn’t understand why she couldn’t take communion and that she was supposed to cross her arms for a blessing. The priest had to say something and it was awkward. Make sure your BMs and GMs are informed!

    We did a detailed program because a lot of our guests weren’t Catholic.

    I like your idea of a simple program, maybe just include the main things like peoples name, proclaimation of faith, and so forth
