    Yay - update - Matt doesn't want the church ceremony. He said we would just have to attend pre-cana and then they would bless the marriage or something like that. So I am glad that I don't have to plan a 3rd thing!

        I was thinnking about getting our marriage blessed. I have to talk Derek into doing Pre-cana. The Catholic church can be so difficult sometimes!

          In the same boat. I'm not religious at all but have to do the church legal ceremony back home after the destination wedding. Not my thing, but doing it for FI's mom and deceased grandma. Compromise I suppose.....they are giving up a traditional church wedding for us, so I can suck it up and wear white in a church...shudder shudder....

          I think you should go for it. Do it on the day of your AHR if possible. It would mean a lot to him, so definately worth the extra planning.

            Good news Carly. So glad I don't have to worry about this stuff. Seems like a headache if you aren't married in a church.

              But I guess I do have a question- what happens if the church doesn't bless your marriage? You can't take communion? You can't attend the church?

                No problems there! Hahahahaa.

                But honestly though, I have no idea! I can't see why they wouldn't bless it. I think we just have to do pre-cana and then it can be blessed. I am waiting for a call from the church to find out more.

                    Funny how so many of us are in the same boat! I too was just told by my fiance that it is important for my fiance to get married in the church. I'm not Catholic but he is...it's not definite but I think we will continue with planning our legal DW in Playa Del Carmen and then plan a separate ceremony in the church he grew up in when we get back (we're not having an AHR). I'm not sure how it works to have a legal wedding first out of the country and then to try and have one in the states. He's agreed to do the homework and talk with his chuch about next steps. I'm pretty sure we'll have to do some kind of pre-cana (perhaps in Chicago where we live!).

                      When you find out more, let us know. I'm definitely going to have to get our marriage blessed when we get back from Jamaica. Both of our moms really want us to; and I guess I need to now if I want to be a godmother in the future!
