weddings_pre_wedding_seminars.jpgPreparing for your wedding is no easy feat, but preparing for your marriage is even more challenging. Married life will entail huge responsibilities, and you'll need to get ready for these changes. Read on to learn about the pre-wedding seminars that you need to attend.


When placing a reservation for the church, you are required to attend the couple's canonical interview with the parish priest or assistant. The interview is conducted so that the parish priest can get to know you and your husband-to-be better.

After attending the canonical interview, you will also have to attend the pre-wedding counseling session at the parish where you'll be married. The conductor of the seminar will share insights on how marriage can strengthen one's faith, and in some instances, married couples will offer their advice. This seminar may also include family planning methods allowed by the church. You and your groom are both expected to attend this pre-wedding seminar, so remember to inquire early about the seminar schedules.

In some parishes, attendance to either the Catholic Engaged Encounter (CEE) or Discovery Weekend (DW) may be recognized in place of the church's pre-wedding counseling seminar. See the BridalBook directory listings of the CEE and DW or inquire at your parish office for more details.
