@lila2012:  I am also having a catholic ceremony and I believe that the padrinos de iglesia do have to be married by the catholic church. It’s kind of like they are your role models for a good marriage.

I dont think it really matters. Although, some people will tell you that they have to be a married couple or that its best is they are older. I am catholic, my entire family is catholic, and my fiance is now catholic. My fiance decided to convert. His family is not catholic though (except for his paternal grandparents). He is also Puerto Rican (i am Mexican) which even if his family was Catholic they would have completely different traditions. For example the “lazo” is something that is commonly used in Mexican Catholic wedding sbut are not so common in Puerto Rican Catholic weddings.

We have decided to get padrinos for the Mass but I didnt follow any rules. I chose the people that i knew cared about us and that had special places in our hearts. Some people are just perfect for some of the padrino “roles”. So dont worry about it too much. Its your wedding and it will perfect no matter what you decide.

The lazzo is normally by a married couple but for the arras can be male/female. The rings can also be whoever i think
