    Hi Everyone,

     

    I need help. I am getting married this year in December in Punta Cana. However, we will be doing legal catholic church ceremony at home Calgary AB. We will keep it small 20 guest just immediate family and bridal party with casual cocktail reception to follow.

     

    I don't know what to wear to the church. Do I wear white? Or just a formal outfit? Do we have to do full mass? Anyone who got married in Catholic church, do you know if can get married during a week instead of weekend?

     

    I would appreciate any ideas and advices.

     

    Thank you,

     

    Anna

      Hi! I too am getting married in December in Punta Cana and am having my legal church ceremony at home two days before I leave. This is a "don't do what I'm doing" post.

      My fiances family does everything over the top, so of course now the church is turning into this big to do, with a dinner afterwards that is costing over 5000, 50 (close family only originally turned into extended family and friends who can't make it to the destination) people are coming and because I want to keep my DW special I refused to wear my wedding dress. So someone his aunt convinced me that she would buy me another dress, at the time I got all swept up into getting another gorgeous wedding gown, but now I wish I had put my foot down and kept it to just our immediate family (i.e. parents) and wore a white short dress or suit. Now I have two weddings, way more stress, and it isn't the simpleness that my future husband and I imagined. I am still excited because I am going to keep it christmas themed and make it more of a christmas party dinner but it still isn't what we originally wanted and that definitely puts stress on both my fiance and I. Hope that helps!

       

      P.S. Where and when are you getting married?

        We are getting married on Dec 3d at the Majestic Elegance 5pm beach ceremony. How about you?

         

        By the way, thank you so much for sharing your experience and thoughts. Your story sounds like something I am trying to avoid. I was also thinking to hear a short white dress or suite. I already have one special dress, so I am trying to be proper for church and ceremony. 

         

        Good luck with all your plans, britb618! And the end of the day, we will get married and it will be great!
