Wedding Ceremony

With This Ring

Couples may plan to be married either during Mass or outside of Mass. If you attend Mass regularly, you may choose to be married at Mass. If you do not attend Mass regularly or if many of your guests are not Catholic, you may decide to be married in a Wedding ceremony (a Liturgy of the Word). The engaged couple together with ________________________ and the priest or deacon who presides will plan the liturgy.

If you have a relative or friend who is a priest or deacon whom you would like to preside at your marriage, mention this at the time of your wedding interview. It is preferable to have a presider who is known to you and your family.

If your fiancé is of another faith and would like to have a minister or rabbi be part of the ceremony, mention this at the time of your initial planning as well.
