Catholic Wedding Without Entourage
« on: November 29, 2011, 06:26:40 pm »
Hi mga sis!

Ask ko lang if it is possible to have a catholic church wedding without having the entourage? Basically it's just me and the groom. If ever with entourage, it is just a best man and a maid of honor. Also, is it possible not to wear long white gown? Just you can imagine a civil wedding lang talaga but to be held in a church instead of a judge or mayor to marry us, it is the priest. Para lang may blessings from above. I plan to have it in either Caleruega, Mary the Queen or St. Peter. Anyone who knows about this one?

Ako sis. :D Catholic church wedding ako pero no entourage kasi wedding rite lang kami.  No mass or whatever. Wedding rite lang (yung tipong do you accept blah blah na part lang) and no eucharistic mass.  15 minutes lang more or less yung wedding namin.   We're having a church wedding kasi my mom wants it. But ayoko nor does my h2b, because of non-belief.  So parang compromise, wedding rite na lang.  Sabi ko nga kay h2b, wala ng "aisle walk", sabay na kaming lalakad. Hehe. Or parang sa binyag, andun na agad kami sa harap ng altar, lol.

It's allowed sis.  :) Dito ako sa Makati kami ikakasal.  Just ask the church if they offer wedding rites. We told them na budget wedding kami kaya wedding rite lang. 2K lang eh. :p

Sis sylph, yeah, I think that's allowed. :) If may liturgical mass ang wedding mo, may package specifically for that.  Ask the church where you are getting married.  Kasi usually pag wedding na may kasamang liturgical mass, nakalagay dun ilang bridesmaid, etc. ang pwede.  Kung maid of honor lang gusto mo, I don't think that would be a problem.  Yun nga lang, I think yung babayaran mo is fixed amount na for that package kahit na wala kang entourage.

Kapag simple wedding rites, may fixed amount pa rin na kailangang bayaran. :) For example, sa Manila Cathedral, it's 1K.  Sa St. Andre the Apostle, it's 2k.

Planning to have this one also, since am married na civil nga lang but gusto ko pa rin may blessing sa church. Puede kayang isabay sa binyag ng baby ko next year, para isang gastos na lang...  ;)

For wedding rites, kailangan mo pa rin ng sponsors (kahit isang pair) and lahat ng secondary for sponsors (candle, veil, and cord).  Kasi sa wedding rite, ito yung part ng wedding na nakaluhod yung couple tapos babasbasan ng pari.  Ito rin yung part na susulpot yung mga secondary sponsors. :)

The same requirements still apply kahit wedding rite lang.  For example, sa St. Andrew (where we're getting married), we still need to get birth certificate, baptismal, pre-cana, canonical interview, wedding banns, marriage certificate, etc.

Really?  :o pwedeng pwede ito? Kasi honestly yan ang gusto kong mangyari someday as in ayoko na rin ng may entourage tapos walking the aisle pa. Gusto ko diretso na lang sa altar. Kasi wala akong planong gawing formal kundi simple lang talaga.


Ano pa ba ang catholic churches na nag-aallow na hindi mo na kailangan mag entourage? Yung formality lang na parang binyag.

Yeah, I think it's allowed.  Since mga 15 minutes lang naman ang wedding rite, no sense na maglakad pa ako sa aisle (and ayoko rin).  Or another alternative is sabay na lang kami ni h2b maglalakad para walang drama.  Ma-dramang wedding is really not my style.

@Sylph

Sorry, I just read your question.  I'm getting married at St. Andrew in Bel-air, and yes they did allow it. :) We only paid 2k.  What churches did you ask?  Try to personally go sa mga church. Mas madali kausapin in person yung mga in-charge pag face-to-face.

Anyway, we told them na wala kaming pera kaya we only want a simple wedding rite.  Syempre, medyo pinilit kami na full wedding with mass and all, pero we insisted na wala kaming pera so they allowed na wedding rite (after all, ito naman yung part na importante sa catholic wedding).  They can't force you to have a full wedding kung wala kang pera. Manila Cathedral also offers this service; it's actually on their website nila.

Sis! :) Ohh, I thought I mentioned it to you na. :) Simple wedding rite lang sa amin; wala kaming entourage para tipid, lol.  We really wanted a civil wedding, but mapilit ang akong dear mother so sige, I told my mom na wedding rite lang para kasal pa rin sa church.  Ayoko ng may mass pa kasi ang haba.  :p Plus, I'll only invite immediate families sa church.  Lahat sa reception na lang.  Kasi if tipong 15 minutes lang naman yung wedding namin, tapos malalate lang yung mga guests sa church, e di dun na lang sila sa reception.  Mas solemn and intimate if immediate family na lang yung nasa church.
