@mrsztobee:  Your spacing is fine, something with the website makes it not show up correctly for the OP’s. If you’re happy with your original choice, stick with it. Don’t let Future Mother-In-Law try to guilt you into changing your mind or re-arranging things just because she isn’t satisfied. It’s you and your FI’s wedding anyways, not hers. You might let her down gently by saying, “Thank you. We’re going to keep ‘Jane’ as our officiant, but I do appreciate your suggestion.” and leave it at that. 🙂

You can have co-officiating people from different Christian denominations. In fact, it’s pretty common.

The only question is whether you would want to!

Your Future Mother-In-Law must not know very much about her own religion, because no Catholic priest is ever going to co-officiate at a wedding that is outside of the Catholic church – it’s completely against their rules and beliefs, and they could lose their position in the church for doing so!

I’d let your Fiance deal with it though, his mom so she’s less likely to lash out or try to pin the blame on you if he’s the one to tell her no. But seriously, it’s not even like it is just you guys telling her no. Even if you wanted to say yes, no Catholic priest is going to agree to an arrangement like this.

No Catholic priest is going to agree to this.  If you have an extra seat, I would suggets Mother-In-Law be allowed to invite him, and Mother-In-Law ask priest if he could do any type of blessing at meal, etc.  But only if you want to.
