If you do choose the catholic church can the ceremony be shortened?

Well the priest doesnt seem very flexible so I say do what you want to do and dont second guess yourself.

Hey fellow Clevelander 🙂

One thing to comsider is that there is often a big gap of time between Catholic ceremonies and the reception due to having the mass at a specific time. You will probably get more flexibility out of the little church. So it may be more personalized and interesting to guests, especially the ones that are not Catholic. Will your Fiance regret not being married in his childhood church? Will you regret not having the big formal wedding?

I think I know what little church you are talking about. My soon to be mother-in-law lives down the street from it and it is really cute.  She actually talked to us about getting married there 🙂 I think you should sit down with your fiance and figure out what the two of you really want.  It’s nice that a Catholic service would make your parents happy but this isn’t their wedding. I’m sure they’ll be fine with whatever you two want.  I’ve noticed that a lot of problems the brides on these boards have are all based on trying to please everyone else. Sadly, you can’t.  So why not choose something that you can be happy with, so at the end of the day you can say you had the wedding you wanted.

what about getting married in the church you like and then doing a convalidation ceremony in the catholic church afterwards? That way you’re married in the eyes of the catholic church (and your parents) but you stil get the ceremony you wanted.
