OMG, i think you may have solved one of my biggest dilemmas! My FI and I are both raised Catholic. My mom, especially, is not too crazy of a non-traditional ceremon. She jokes she will be carrying a bible w/ her. Anyways, I think she would feel better about our wedding if we were at least blessed by a priest. Do you mind posting your ceremony itinerary (readings, vows...)? Are you going to be reciting the catholic vows and having readings from the bible?
