- Wedding: June 2011
I’m Aly – and I’ve been a lurker for such a long time, I thought it was about time to introduce myself and pick your brains over a few things.
My fiance and I are getting married in a year (!) – so June, 2011 and will be having a Catholic wedding. The church is booked and the fiance has a cousin who is a Catholic priest, so both of those things are secure. That is about as far as we’ve gone so far in our planning.
We are both baptised Catholics, but my fiance is practising and I am not. We’ve spoken to a local priest who seems happy to skip the pre cana counselling course, provided that I start going to church each Sunday. Has anyone been asked to do this before, and is this generally all that is needed?
We’re undecided on the service too; he wants a full Catholic mass and I would prefer to have the Catholic ceremony but to skip the Eucharist, since my relatives and friends aren’t of the same faith and I feel it would be too long for some of them to sit through. So lots of things to hash out yet – I wondered if there are others with similar planning problems too?
It’s great to meet you all in advance! 🙂
