what religions do not require pre-cana??

Recommended Posts

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!

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?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
