Here We Go Again…

Here We Go Again… June 17, 2011

invitacion de bodaI’ve playing piano and organ, and helping sing for a wedding tomorrow afternoon. Weddings are always a beautiful thing, when it comes right down to it, but I’m usually not that excited about the preparations. Brides are fussy creatures, by nature, and they naturally want things to turn out well on such a special day. They’ve got ideas about what they want, but they’re not always too savvy about the specific rules that govern Catholic weddings, even if they are Catholic, and woe betide the bride who isn’t Catholic, but is marrying a Catholic groom in a Catholic ceremony! I just have to shake my head and pray a little bit more.

Tomorrow’s wedding is even more interesting! Not only is a non-Catholic bride marrying a Catholic groom in a Catholic ceremony, but she is “Anglo” and he is Hispanic. So half of the wedding party doesn’t speak the language of the other half! Fortunately, it’s not a large wedding, and the couple is pretty easy going!

Maybe it’s not so bad living in a small town.

  • ohhhh would I know them? Sounds interesting.

  • A little catty, perhaps? In fact, I think it is wonderful that a non-Catholic bride is willing to be married in Catholic ceremony.

    • I’m not trying to be catty. I’m just saying that planning the ceremony can be an interesting compromise of what-I-want versus what-is-allowed. I’m certainly not trying to imply that it’s wrong to marry someone not of your faith, although it can sometimes cause difficulties that are not often taken into consideration in advance. No, “hope springs eternal” is my motto in this.

  • Have fun, Mommy! I know they appreciate your help. And as soon as you are done it is MOVIE TIME!!!

    • I did have fun! And she looked just beautiful… I pray that they are very happy together for the rest of their lives.
