nasecoeur:  I am not catholic but from my understanding the convalidation happens after the legal ceremony, not before. Thered be nothing to convalidate!

nasecoeur:  I agree with MrsBuesleBee – you might be able to have a full Catholic wedding before the legal ceremony, but I really doubt you can convalidate a marriage that hasn’t happened.<br />

nasecoeur:  well then I would just keep it immediate family. Theres no need to explain to your dad that it doesn’t mean as much to you, I would just say you want to keep this part just parents/siblings/grandparents, and have the large ceremony with everyone. It’s insane to have two 200 person ceremonies in one day! It’s too much pressure. (unless that’s your cultures tradition- not the case for you though!)
