It’s officially called the Catholic Rite of Marriage Outside of Mass.

But on our invitations we just put Dad & Mom request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter, Me, to DH. Date Time Place. Reception to follow.

Bumping. We are having a Catholic Wedding also but we are having a mass and paying for our own wedding. So what’s the wording for that ?

soon_to_bee_trophy_wifey:  you could do something like this

The honor of your presence is requested
at the celebration of the Nuptial Mass uniting

Sophia Anne
to
Alexander Michael Miller

In the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony

Saturday, the eighth of July
two thousand and fifteen
at three in the afternoon

But there are other variations you could use as well.

I put “the honour of your presence is requested at the marriage of mangobreezy and mrmangobreezy on date, time and church name”

 

It’s pretty neutral and generic lol. We are hosting ourselves so didn’t include our parents names.

You can’t call it a Nuptual Mass because it’s outside of mass. FYI. So like I said you’d have to replace that with “the celebration of the Catholic Rite of Marriage Outside of Mass”

I think it’s still a sacrament though so that should be ok. Pretty sure…

But you don’t HAVE to mention it at all. We didn’t because it’s a mouthful. We just called it a marriage. You can just use any generic self-hosting template from the internet. That way you don’t have to worry about saying the wrong thing.

we’re having the catholic rite of marriage, no mass. it’s definitely a sacrament, and our priest even told us its in no way “halfassing” the ceremony (using better words!). we’re hosting but want to include parents names so..

the honour of your presence is requested at the marriage celebration of (this is traditional if ceremony is in a house of worship)

bride name & groom name

daughter of mr & mrs. dad and mom bride and son of mr. & mrs. dad and mom groom

date

catholic church nameaddress

i added that we’re celebrating the catholic rite of marriage on our wedding website, just so those in the “in” (catholics) will know it’s not a full mass. Fiance is lutheran, so it’s the appropriate type of celebration to have, according to my priest.

Did not use “honour” as everyone in my family kept telling me I spelled it wrong or the “Canadian way” so I changed it so my guest didn’t think I made an error 😒 *eye roll* but I’m happy with the outcome!

ce2015:  We used ‘the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony’ wording on our invitations. It seems more Catholic to me, but that’s a personal preference. Using ‘marriage’ seems to be more popular.
