Latin Mass Wedding

Latin Mass Wedding

Welcome!

A Catholic wedding Mass has two parts:

  1. the Rite of Marriage
  2. the wedding Mass

In my experience, the vast majority of Catholic wedding resources online presuppose that the couple will have a Novus Ordo Mass (the current form of the Catholic Mass) - to say nothing of the fact that most wedding resources focus on the reception.

This website provides information for those who would like a Latin Mass wedding, providing both the essential stuff, and the how & why of Latin Mass weddings.
