That is great to hear!  Whew – one more thing checked off the list!  (Well…minus all those readings and prayers you have to choose from…hehe!)

Was the book “Together for Life”?  The best way to wade through all your choices is to put initials next to the ones you like the best, and see if there are any that you and your Fiance both initialled.  Otherwise you’ll be reading through the whole thing several times over.  🙂

@chicklet1587: not to overwhelm you even more, but…you can go “off book” if you want.  If you or Fiance have a favorite passage or verse, the priest is usually very willing to go with it.  Mr. & I went totally “off book” & chose our own readings for all readings & consulted with our musicians for the psalms.  It made our mass rather “personalized”.  So feel free to choose what means most to you & Fiance.  Good luck!

@jenbrandner: We did that too! I choose my fave and he choose his fave. Most we actually agree’d on, a few we liked different versions (the prayers)… We still BOTH have to decide which vows… We both don’t know which we like, haha

We also have to finalize the 2nd and gospel. I need to get permission on our Psalm since it’s “outside of the book.”

We are meeting with the deacon from our church on Wednesday and I am getting excited, albeit a bit nervous! Glad to hear your appointment went well. We don’t meet with our priest who will be officiating until next month. Hoping all goes well though 🙂

@chicklet1587: I felt the same way after we met with our priest. It actually got me really excited for our wedding! Althoug he said he doesn’t support couples living together, it wasn’t a big deal. Our priest was a teacher for many years before joining the Church so he’s pretty “normal” on alot of things. Lucky us!

Now to pick all the readings…yikes haha
