It sounds complicated and although it makes sense why you want two ceremonies I can see your guests being a little confused and not wanting to sit down for two ceremonies. 

Could you instead have a small mass with close family and friends and then the ceremony at your reception venue with the rest of your guests. 

You could add on your invites that “mass will be held at 1pm at the xx church for those wishing to attend”

Could you pick another church that would allow for the kneeler? It doesn’t sound like you are choosing a church you were raised in or have belonged too… I’m assuming you only joined this church for the looks of the church for your ceremony?

Your ceremony is stated as 3 hours long… 😳 

maybe as PP stated, have a small mass with just family.

I am not familiar with significance of the kneelers in the traditions, so I am unable to make any suggestions as to how to incorporate them in your wedding.

What if you did the vail, rope, and the coins in the church; and Then did the unity candle at the head table prior to/as part of your welcome speech?

pocketbridetobee:  Totally not trying to threadjack but I’m doing the veil and cord ceremony (but skipping the arras) however my priest is unfamiliar with the tradition. I’ve been looking for a good video of it, or some helpful info to provide him (and include on the programs for my non-Cuban guests). Do you have anythign like this?

I agree with BaxterBride’s suggestion to make the mass attendance a pre-wedding event. Otherwise, just chiming in to say I think the incorportation of these traditions is a very beautiful idea 🙂 Good luck!
