My priest keeps referring to our marriage blessing and/or convalidation as our “wedding.” During our first meeting I figured if the Church sees this as our actual “wedding” (we got married in a civil ceremony without family or friends) then why not make it a wedding?
My question is can it be formal? Can I wear a dress and my husband wear a tux? I know that he cannot receive Communion until after the ceremony and I cannot until I am baptized, so we can’t have a traditional Nuptial Mass, but can we make it a “wedding”?
There would only be close family there for the ceremony. Also can we light a unity candle? Can we have music? Does anyone know? My priest is off on vacation until Friday and I’m eager for so knowledge.
