hmmm, I haven’t thought of this honestly.  I’m interested to see others’ suggestions/ideas too.

We said grace before the meal began (just the regular “Bless us oh Lord and these thy gifts…” version).  98% of our guests were Catholic/raised Cath/attended our Catholic college, so we weren’t really worried about alienating too many people.

My sister initially suggested making escort cards/favors from vintage holy cards. The Catholics in the family would appreciate it and the non-Catholics would think it was cute kitsch. I nixed it because I didn’t feel right doing it knowing a lot of them might end up in the trash!

We’re going to say a blessing before dinner and I might put a rosary in my bouquet if I can find a good one.  Otherwise, that’s about it.

@Mrs.Anchors: I love your cake topper!

I really want to incorporate Catholic things into my wedding. About 60% of my invited guests are Catholic, but these things are really for FH and I:

We will have a wedding cross (the one with the double rings) which the priest will bless; and a wedding bible + rosary which I will carry with my bouquet. The wedding program will have a catholic image on the front, such as the Holy Family.
