I admire that you want to get married before you move in together.  But are you doing that for your parents or your own morals?  It sounds like you want to do the right thing and want to have a Catholic wedding.  The problem is the Catholic Church would still see you as living in sin, until you get your marriage blessed.  (If that is important to you.)

To answer your question.  Could your first ceremony be very quiet, just the witnesses, without the big wedding dress?  Then when you get your wedding blesses you can wear your gown and have the whole reception and shooting match.  And feel like the day you got married i fornt of God was your real wedding day.

Of course you said you’d feel horrible about having a big church ceremony after living together…  I sounds like it is important to you to do the right thing and have the nice wedding.  Why do you have to live together?  I think when it’s all said and done, you’ll feel better for sticking to your guns and having that Church ceremony and fancy wedding all in one shot. 

Good luck.
