    No, to me it’s no different than going to a wedding at a Catholic church, synagogue, temple, etc

    I’d definitely go.  A wedding is a wedding, no matter where it is held.  Anyone who feels differently should probably not be invited.

    There is definitely an air of myster around Masons.. but it would in no way stop me from going.  There’s actually a very popular restaurant in my city which used to be a Masonic Temple (not just memorial).

    If you are ok with it then go ahead and do it. Anyone who has a problem will get over it if they want to be there to support you on your day.

    Oooh are you doing it at the Masonic Temple in DC?  I would go to an event there in a heart beat!

    Either way, I wouldn’t care at all.  I would just think it was cool. I’ve been to weddings in all sorts of venues, and none of them made me think twice…I wanted to be there for my friend/family getting married 🙂

    I’m going post this with the hope that I don’t get attacked by the people who are anti-masonic.

    I will say that my entire family is masonic, and the hearsay that you may hear is not true.

    Masonic organizations are Christian based, they aren’t a cult, they don’t put a sword to your throat. They are actively involved in serving the community, they help youth to develop good morals and values, and they have a heart for not only God but community.

    Meet with the place you are thinking about having your reception or wedding, and honestly and sincerely talk with the masonic leaders and they will be completely honest and open.

    Don’t judge by what you hear, make your own decisions.

    I know nothing about the Freemasons, so I wouldn’t care either way.

    @NJmeetsBX ETA:  There is “masonic” ceremony being performed.  We’ll have the same officiant as we would anywhere else.  We are just renting the space.

     

    There IS going to be a masonic ceremony? If that’s something you’re involved in wouldn’t your friends and family have some idea already?

    I’m having my wedding/reception at a Masonic Temple, no one has said anything weird to me about it and if they did- they don’t have to go!
