My cousin did that. I’m pretty sure he even had a huge mass for the church wedding.

@kt131: Yes, but its a vowel renewal and not a wedding ceremony.  You only get one actual wedding per couple!

We did/are doing this.  We had the city hall ceremony in May.  We will have the “wedding” hopefully next summer. 

I would have preferred to just have a church wedding, but we had a few reasons why it was better that we married sooner rather than later, so we got married at city hall.  We are Catholic and waiting on an anullment to be processed.  Once it is granted, we will schedule the wedding.

And for us, as we are Catholic, even though the city hall ceremony was our legal marriage, the convalidation will be the “real” wedding, not a vow renewal.  In the eyes of the Catholic Church, we are not yet married, even though we are legally.  The convalidation ceremony will actually be the sacrament of matrimony.  I do believe that in other churches, that may not be the case.

The topic ‘court then church?’ is closed to new replies.
