I am not Catholic (I was raised protestant) but my fiance is. So I agreed to get married in the Catholic church because I knew how important to him it was. BUT NOW I know nothing about what to plan or account for or even expect and he is absolutely no help. So if there are other brides out there who can answer some questions I have you would be saving the sanity of one anal retentive bride!!!!

As you get closer to your wedding date, you’ll meet with the priest for counseling/ceremony planning so that should answer any questions you have.
In the meantime, what exactly do you want to know? I grew up Catholic and worked as the pastor’s secretary for 5 years. I should be able to answer most questions. 🙂 Feel free to PM me if there’s anything private.

Mmm I was also raised protestant and my SO is a mix of methodist and catholic, I do know that where I live you have to do the first communion and the whole nine yards to be married in the church but that might change from country to country maybe? You should go ask the priest, he’s the one who could really tell you what to do 😉

@minipenguin: At the church where I was married (the first time) they would still marry you even if you were not Catholic/had not had first communion, but they charged a higher fee >:( So I lied and said I was Catholic!
