    hey ladies!

     

    my FI and I are having a civil ceremony at secrets maroma beach just the two of us! we can not wait.

     

    we are both catholic, but don't really practice. we had hoped that at our AHR in July, we could do a quick vow renewal with a priest or minister so that "god" could bless out marriage so we weren't completely out of touch with out religion and that our marriage was recognized in the eyes of god.

     

    well. i was wrong about that one!

     

    apparently for just a blessing or vow renewal from a priest in a catholic diocese we still need to do pre-cana and it would need to be performed inside a church??

     

    well thats not going to work.

     

    anyone know of another christian religion that does not require pre-cana and would be willing to do the ceremony outside of the church??

      I think Catholicism is the only one that requires pre-Cana and being inside the Church.

       

      You should be able to go with any other religion to skip pre-Cana and to be outside the Sanctuary. Maybe Lutheran, Protestant, Episcopalian, non-denominational? I think they are all less strict with location requirements, but could be very wrong. Orthodox won't work since they have even more rules than we Catholics, I believe.

       

      Good luck with your search!

        I think the same thing. Catholic should be the only one with those requirements. Most other religions are not as strict.

          Hey this might help you.  You can have a Catholic blessing if you do it this way.

            Hey, I'm curious as to what you ended up doing with this issue? My problem is that my family is Roman Catholic (super strict!), I'm not really practicing and my FI is atheist. I'm happy to do a beach wedding with a non-denominational minister, but my mom is really pushing for a catholic wedding. Are there any priests in Mexico that actually do perform beach ceremonies?
