So as you can tell from my ticker… I am planning to be married fairly soon! YEAA But I have a few questions concerning the wedding ceremony. First of all my mom wants us to have a lasso and coins… I believe these are hispanic traditions? I think I would feel uncomfortable doing these things. Could anyone better explain these traditions to me? And do you think I am being selfish for not wanting to do them at my wedding???
Also on another note… my fiancé is not Catholic, but he is strongly considering becoming Catholic… but is not to that point yet. He has spent years learning about Catholicism, and says he agrees with 99% of the teachings, comes to mass with me and he has agreed for to raise our future children Catholic. He comes from a very strong protestant background. So for our wedding ceremony we have not decided if we will have a mass or not (either way we will be getting married by a Catholic priest). One reason for our debate is concerning receiving the Eucharist… instead of being a uniting sacrament; it will instead show our current differences. Also I think a mass may make his side of the family very uncomfortable. But not having a mass will make my side of the family very sad… So what should we do? I know in the end the decision should be ours not our parents… I think he worries that if he does indeed become Catholic that we will regret that we didn’t get married in a nuptial mass. We are not very sad about this, just a little confused and looking for some advice. Also I would love to hear experience from anyone who was in a similar situation? Thanks
