We had a full mass, and we recently got the DVD from our wedding. We’ve made several copies. Where are you located? If in the US, I’d be happy to send you a copy. The entire mass was recorded. Just send me a PM if you’re interested.

she said “although Ive never been quite well with knowing “what is what”. Aka- knowing the correct terms for what is happening.”
I read that and assumed she was trying to figure out the sections of Mass– how the readings lead to the Gospel that flows into the Homily and leads to Communion. I stand by my advice and think she should go to Mass and really pay attention to those things– perhaps bring a “cheat sheet” or guideline of the order of Mass, so she can follow along and put names to the things she’s seen over the course of her life. Then she can see where the vows would fit in just before Communion.

This is so helpful! I was also confused with the steps, and what the bride and groom are supposed to do during Mass. I guess that because there’s way more examples of non-catholic weddings available to the public, I’ve been sort of propagandized.
