    Please disregard my last question about songs!  But, did you have programs?

You just worry about showing up for mass like you would any time you attend regular service. LOL

     

     I really liked all the songs so I did not change any of them.  When I asked for a quote they sent me the list below showing the suggestions of songs and when they will play them. If you don’t like the program I’m sure you can tell them to play something else. If you’re not familiar with the songs just go to you tube and type in the name of song and author. There are plenty of samples on there so you can be familiar with each piece and decide if you like it or not.

     

    Also if you don’t want to spend so much money on a quartet you can ask to have a trio, violinist or something simpler.    Your wedding coordinator can also suggest musicians for the mass, In my case I asked for a quote on the musicians and a list of songs. After months of no reply I just outsourced and did it myself.  Of course I had to pay the outside vendor fee.

      Question, since we're having a Catholic ceremony in MX, do we need to apply for a marriage license/have a civil ceremony in our hometown? I tried calling our hometown office to schedule a date but the woman on the phone told me that I did not need to since we are already getting married in MX and that there's no reason to get married twice. I was trying to tell her that it was a religious ceremony and not a civil but she was adamant about not needing to schedule a date with our hometown. From what I understand, a Catholic ceremony is not considered a legal marriage in MX so usually people have both. I thought it was more of a symbolic ceremony anyways. What were your experiences? Your replies are truly appreciated. Thanks.

        You are correct. A religous wedding is not valid in the states. You should get married in your hometown first then go to MX. That lady does not know what she is talking about.

              Hey does anyone know how long the chapel is? I bought 2 spools of tulle that are 25 yards each to place on the pews down the aisle with pew bows and pom poms. And does anyone know where we meet the priest for confession? My date is less than a month away!!!!

                  We met the preist at the chapel and had our meeting there. As far as how long the aisle in the chapel is, i know i had the same question and my WC was able to answer it for me. She gave my distance and the number of pews on each side. I can't remeber the exact number now, so i'm sorry!! But ask your WC, and she should be able to answer you with no problem!

                    Does anyone know how many guests the chapel holds? I am having 50 guests and my WC, Elsa, told me that she will need to set up 20 chairs to fit all of my guests. Each chair is $5.00. From pictures, it looks like the church would hold more.

                      Kmsatter - I had 55 guests and they fit in the chapel just fine and with room to spare. No chairs were necessary.
