that FI of mine...

I dont mind having the marriage recognized by the church, cuz FI wants to raise our kids as catholics and that is fine, as long as he realizes that is his thing.
So now I am wondering, should we jsut do a ceremony at church the day of our AHR (July 12th)? That would give us just enough time, as long as the church is available, since we need to register 6 months before the wedding. Our AHR is already costing us a lot of money, and we are doing the whole sha-bang anyway, so how much more would having an extra ceremony in the church be? What are the extra added costs you can see? I can't only think of the fee/donation to the church and flowers. We will already have a photog, so maybe we would just extend his hours. Oh and transportation.
Any advice on what I should do here? I am trying not to be annoyed at him for bringing this up now...

Is this something your really want to do? The only reason I ask is because you seem to be doing just for FI's sake & said it's "his thing" about raising your children catholic. That's kinda big stuff there that you might want to think about. ??

I would be doing this just for his sake, if I did it, but he is doing Jamaica cuz it's what I wanted, so I wouldn't mind doing this for him if it is what he wants. And we already DO have all that other stuff planned, so I wonder how hard it would be to add on a ceremony.... Kinda babbling here, but he did jsut spring this on me!

By the way, thanks for telling us about this, I never realized that was the case about becoming godparents. I told my mom we would get our marriage blessed, but now I guess I have to make sure we really do it!

Let us know what you end up deciding!

Sorry about the threadjack....I think the blessing can be very private with just the 2 of you and you should do it whenever you want, I don't think it should be before or after your AHR, but when you feel you should do it. KWIM?>
