If they’re the sort of place that has an issue with talking during lent then I am surprised they’re letting you get married during lent at all!

I admire your ability to stay cool with all of this! I would be a horrible human being. Your patience is astounding.

Luckily one of the 10 commandments is thou shalt not kill. I would have been seething. Congrats on keeping your composure you are a better woman than I.

  • Wedding: March 2018

Gosh, we’re getting married tomorrow (also Lent), but in UK and we’ve had none of this, bar no flowers in the Church, and no alleluias in any readings or hymns surprised

Sounds like your Church needs to just have a ‘no lent weddings’ rule if it’s that strict. Our Priest also very relaxed about remembering details – found out a few days ago he can no longer do the wedding, a Deacon is doing it instead. Turns out the Priest forgot to tell us loads of our ceremony last month, so our orders of service have missed loads out as a result – like the Lords Prayer, and the hail Mary’s. Found this out yesterday, so too late to print new ones now! 

It will all be ok on the day though. Very sensible to keep reminding them about your wedding though! I’d remind them a few days before, then the day before and even the morning of if that gives you peace of mind.

samael :  Read this and had also seen your other thread about issues with the meetings and dress. Sounds like getting your wedding planned and scheduled has been quite the trial! Sounds like calling to check in a couple days before the wedding may not be a bad idea. 

I hope the wedding goes perfectly on the day-of and wish you a very happy life together!
