        I am so curious about the origin of that particular "rule". You're right though, it's just so ridiculous you can't help but laughing about it. Even though it's throwing a monkey wrench in the plans.

        Good luck and make sure to post if you find out where that comes from.

        You know....that got me thinking, my godfather is one of those catholics that knows EVERYTHING about the symbolic origins and particular doctrines of anything to do with the religion as well as other faiths. I'm going to try and find his email and ask if he's ever heard of that.

          Vikki - let us know. My Grandma was the same way. It's sad that I don't have her around for these types of questions anymore. But I bet she knows ALL the answers now!

            If they are wearing shoes, then technically their feet would be protected from touching the sand, right?

                Okay - I have no idea about the sand rule...we catholics are a little wierd. then again several years back, a friend of a friend wanted to get married outside but have a catholic ceremony. She was told that the priest could only marry her in a church becuase the ground on which the ceremony would be performed has to be consectrated.

                  i asked my nanny (my grandmother ) and she had never heard of such a rule! Vikki - definitely let us know what your grandfather tells you!!!

                  personally, i think that is has to do with what jamiaca0619 said. i bet it has nothing to do with "sand" per se (also - from the pictures, the gazebo is in the grass - HELLO) but with consecrated ground. just like a priest won't perform the ceremony on non-consecrated ground, after you receive communion, i bet you have to stay on the gazebo, because it must be the only thing that is consecrated or something.

                  oh yea - someone gave me another suggestion - a catholic wheelbarrow! we could paint it and everything! he he. but where would we wheel everyone?? and wouldn't that be a sight to see on the baggage claim carousel??

                    bahaha that is quite funny. being a catholic I have never heard of this.and they def didnt teach us that in my catholic highschool or ccd growing up! Why put a church or anything catholic related near sand if you can not walk on it after communion?!

                      Beach Wedding? - Catholic Answers Forums

                      I did a quick search and that's what I found. Apparently a marriage isn't valid unless it is performed inside a Catholic church, and doing a church wedding followed by a "symbolic" ceremony is a big no-no. I have no idea, I'm not Catholic, in fact I was raised Anglican lol. I'm going by what I read on that board.

                      Hope this helps!

                      Oh, and the wheelbarrow idea? PRICELESS!!
