Our Lady of Guadalupe Church - Do both Partners need to be Catholic to Marry here?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am interested in getting married in Our Lady of Guadalupe church. My fiance is Catholic; I am not. I know at least here in the US, only one partner needs to be Catholic to marry in the church. I am not sure what the rules are in Mexico - I think they vary depending on the church.

 

Does anyone know if it is OK if only one partner is Catholic or will they require baptismal certificates from both partners?

 

Thanks!

I don't know the answer to your question but I know how you can find the answer. Why don't you use the search function in the forum and search for brides that got married at the church and send them personal message with your question.

 

One bride that I know "Jess" got married at the church and had her reception at Dreams PV. Good luck

Thanks. I have searched for other posts about the church, but most seem to be from couples who are both Catholic. I will try contacting them anyway and see if they know the deal regarding marrying a Catholic and a non-Catholic. Or I could just call the church I suppose

I am getting married there on December 28th and there seems to be no problem with only one of us being Catholic.  I am Catholic and my fiance is Lutheran.  We went to my parish and filled out all paperwork, we had to give them a copy of both of our baptismal certificates, my communion and confirmation certificate, and take a precana class.  My priest had no issue with us getting married in the Catholic church and had me sign a form that indicates that I intend to remain Catholic and raise my future children Catholic.  He is sending all paperwork now to Our Lady of Guadalupe.  We also spoke with Father Esteban and a women who works in the office there and explained groom is Lutheran and they did not say it would be a problem. 

 

The only thing that we need to still figure out is if it will be a full mass or not since he is not Catholic.

 

I hope this helps

    • 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?
