You are in full preparation of the day J. For the ceremony you have selected a beautiful white wedding dress. Your companion will wait for you in front of the altar dressed in an elegant wedding suit bought especially for the occasion. You will also want to hold in your hands a pretty bridal bouquet to display a traditional look from head to toe.
The preparation of your wedding is not just about your look or the colors of your wedding room decor. If you have decided to get married at the beautiful churches, you must in fact reserve the date of your wedding in your parish or other places of worship and you will have a preparation for the marriage which will go through various meetings with your priest and married and future married couples.
If one must normally unite in one’s parish, the rules of the religious ceremony are a little less strict than in a civil ceremony and sometimes it is possible to choose a church other than his own provided that it makes sense. Do not justify your choice of the church according to your wedding theme whose aesthetics better correspond to this or that architecture! You will also need the approval of the priest of your home parish and the host parish.
