Just relax. For most people, the first meeting is a pretty casual get-to-know you, answer some questions. Don’t freak out when they ask you stuff like “have you ever been married before” and some other stuff that seems personal. They have to, according to Canon Law, and they do so for everyone. Just answer honestly. (They’re just making sure that you don’t have any reasons your marriage would be invalid, like if you were forced into it.)

I’m not sure about adding elements to the cermony. Most (but not all) Catholic priests are pretty strict about following the book, but of course different priests are different.

Good luck!

I agree it depends on the priest you get. There is one preist at my church who is downright mean and judgemental…and another is so accomodating and willing to “make it our own” day. Im hoping you have a great experience!
