Sunday’s are normally packed back to back with masses and confessions so that’s probably why. My church does one wedding per Saturday latest time they will marry us is at 2:00 bc of mass that night. And they won’t do wedding the two weeks before or after Easter, they are super picky with those dates!

Oooh yeah they are sticklers if you aren’t a parishioner… Sorry you are having such a hard time! It took forever to even get the priest to call me back from my church… They are impossible sometimes! It reminded me of that episode of sex and the city where Charlotte had to go to the rabbi three times! I literally had to stalk him… And I was a parishioner!!

I did hear that story before.  But some churches are more open.  You just have to keep trying different places. 

Good luck!

We’re getting married on a Sunday in our church… they didn’t even bat an eye when we told them we wanted to do Sunday.  I’d say keep looking for a church… there definitely are ones that will do weddings on Sundays.

There are actually rules about how many times a priest is allowed to celebrate the Eucharist in a given day. A church might be more open to a Sunday wedding if you tell them that you do not want to do the full mass.  

Something to keep in mind, however, is that if you get married on a Sunday you will not be able to select your own readings, you will have to use the readings assigned to that week in the lectionary.
