Overview

Prepared By a Priest and a Music Coordinator who over the past twenty-five years have helped hundreds of couples prepare to celebrate their weddings in the Catholic Church, this book provides in a few brief pages an extraordinary amount of practical considerations regarding such matters as: who makes the final decisions, what paper work is required by the Church and by the State, how and when should plans be made for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, how to handle family and in-law problems, why is time alone together so essential, what are the liturgical options available for the couple, what are the roles of the various members of the wedding party, what about witnesses, licenses, baptismal and confirmation certificates, seating arrangements, processions, recessions, the readings, the vows, the rings, the unity candle, flowers for the Blessed Virgin's altar, music, costs, etc., etc. Each chapter makes use of a short story related to the authors' experiences to illustrate the points that follow. The material covered in this handy guide will save couples planning their Catholic wedding an untold amount of time, money and, above all, grief. It is hoped that, as a result, they will enjoy a particularly engaging, joyous and prayerful wedding liturgy.
