A Roman Catholic wedding service is just one of the many ways to celebrate a wedding in the Catholic Church. There are also several forms of Christian weddings that Catholics practice. When planning your own wedding, you should keep in mind several important points about marriage that are different from non_religious weddings. If you would like to plan your own wedding ceremony, below are seven things you should consider. All of these points pertain to the Roman Catholic Church and its form of marriage.
First, let's take a look at what a typical Catholic wedding service looks like. The wedding service consists of a pre_ceremony introduction of the bride, and groom, prayers, reception, distribution of the wedding cake and music. An optional part of the wedding service may be a rosary or reading of the Eucharistic prayer. Most priests allow for individual readings of biblical passages, if such passages are permitted by the church.
In addition to the above, there are other things that occur at a Catholic wedding. You may not want to have a music band perform. If you do, you'll have to explain how you'd prefer it and who would be performing. The normal order of events is then set forth and the couple moves into their new home. After a short break, another service called a post_nuptial service is held.
Many modern_day Catholics in the UK and elsewhere in the world still adhere to the original form of the wedding service. The formality of the service is important, as it shows what type of a married couple the couple is. The wedding ceremony in the Catholic Church is considered very sacred. The custom was started after the Reformation, when the Catholic Church opposed the idea of marriage outside of heterosexual marriage. This meant that the wedding service had to be strictly solemn and required a great deal of ritual.
It is possible to find many traditional forms of wedding service on the internet. Most of these will be templates with slight modifications. There are some sites, however that will provide you with a fully customized wedding form.
You can download this form from the internet and print it off. Many websites will allow you to download the form to your personal computer so you can fill it in yourself. This is a very simple process and usually takes no more than five minutes. The printed document is then folded once in the top corner, so that it may fit neatly inside the small envelope that it comes in.
It is important to make sure that you use the correct form for the correct function. For example, if you are having a civil wedding service then you would not use the form designed for a wedding ceremony in a church. Civil weddings take place in different locations and are overseen by different churches. On the other hand, a Catholic wedding is considered a sacred ceremony. You will want to use the proper form.
If you have some leeway, you may wish to make a few changes to the wedding form to suit your own purposes. You may wish to add an extra sentence at the end or insert a couple of prayers. The main thing though is to make sure that it is done correctly. A Roman Catholic wedding order of service is one of the most important things you will have to write down. This is the way in which people will confirm that they attend your wedding and it is something you will have to make certain of every year as the marriage anniversary approaches.
