The reason I came to this board around a year and half ago was that my son’s longtime girlfriend is Catholic. Well, this past weekend they officially got engaged. The wedding is going to be in a Catholic church. My son is a non-Catholic Christian. He is not it RCIA so he will still be a non-Catholic next summer when they get married. However, I expect him to become Catholic at some point in the future.
At any rate. I have never been to a wedding in a Catholic church.
What will be the major differences between the wedding ceremony and a typical non-Catholic Christian wedding ceremony (Baptist, Methodist…)?
Are the bride and groom restricted on things like music that is played, decorations and so forth?
Is it true that there will be an open bar at the reception?
Anyway, we are excited to have a daughter in law join our family.
