In a Catholic Church a marriage ceremony can take place during Mass or outside Mass. Catholic couples may opt for the first choice. If one spouse is non-Catholic, we suggest having a ceremony outside Mass, given the fact that half the congregation may not share our tradition.
Since the order and rite of celebrating marriage is very important, please schedule a meeting with the priest who will preside at your wedding for the final touch, or for any change in the liturgy.
Please note that the liturgy, be it during Mass or just a “ceremony” has a certain order. However, you may check with the presider in regards to any suggestions or cultural adaptations. Should you need more clarification, our marriage planner and secretary will answer your questions. Hopefully, the information provided below will help you make the ceremony of your wedding meaningful and beautiful! Congratulations!
