It should only take about 30 minutes or so. We are not doing a mass, because most of the people there will not be catholic, and if you’ve never been to a mass before, it is a little different and can make lot’s of people feel uncomfortable.

But like I said it shouldn’t last longer than 30 minutes. It is more like any other wedding (not Catholic) you would attend.

Depends on how long your priest’s homily is, how many people are processing in (large bridal parties take a long time!), if you have any hymns (we had one)…ours was about 35-40 min.

It should take approximately 25 minutes.  I used to attend mass every day and that is how long it took when it wasn’t the full mass.

I agree it was pretty short. About 25 minutes.
