- Wedding: August 2012
I need your help.
Ive been a practicing Catholic my whole life, always attended mass, although Ive never been quite well with knowing “what is what”. Aka- knowing the correct terms for what is happening. (Homilee (sp), gifts, readings, processional, recessional, praying to the family, offering flowers) I have never felt like a bad Catholic, I pray, I attend, I sing, but I guess I never knew alot of the terms, or the background and the “whys”.
Also, Neither Fiance or I have ever been to a wedding with a mass. So Im very lost, and kinda concerned. The only weddings Ive attended are the bride walks down the aisle, the pastor or whoever reads some readings, etc etc and they do their vows, kiss, announced, and GONE!!
When I mentioned this to our priest he kept saying “theres rehearsal the night before, youll be fine”, well Im a worrier- and Id love to be able to see what this will actually be like BEFORE the night before our wedding. The way that he explained it it seemed to me like the actual MARRIAGE of us would be akwardly put into the mass, is it really? Im so confused. Please help me, the priest didnt seem too sympathetic or helpful. My wedding is in 24 days, Im about to cry…
