We initially had some struggles, but all in all the process has gone as expected.

First difference is that we didn’t have to pay a dime, but that’s b/c I was a member of the parish. But even if I wasn’t, I think it would have only been around $100. We did have to pay for the church’s coordinator and the soloist/musician, and we couldn’t have an outsider come in to take their place. The birth certificate hassle is expected. I think finding our baptismal certificates was harder! But don’t fret, once you get through this, it’ll all be worth it. I would consider asking both of y’all parents to chip in on the cost since they insisted on you getting married there.

I’m sorry you are frustrated but if you look at the positive and know that all extra stuff will pay off in the end because you will be happily married and your family will be at peace with the religious ceremony. If you intend to raise your children Catholic it will be important to you to receive te sacrament of marriage, which they probably addressed during counseling. Good luck honey! Hope it all turns put fabulous!

I recently got married in January in a Catholic Church and it only cost $100 and our meetings with the priest were great, we too lived together before we got married. Plus we only had to meet twice with our designated couple. My advice is take the good from it and make the most of your actual wedding day. I promise the pictures will be worth all the hassel.

I wonder since they are so adamant if they want to split the cost for the church. Sorry you are not getting your outdoor wedding. It is a pretty location though.

One of my best friends got married in a Catholic church and I think your experience is pretty run of the mill for how things are done. But it looks like a lovely church! I bet you’ll get some great pictures!
