Preparation for marriage is a time of great excitement. However, it is too easy to get swept along on the tide of wedding planning, with its endless lists to make, menus to select, and colour schemes to choose.
Cherishing Your Wedding: Preparing Couples for Marriage in the Catholic Church is a comprehensive and user-friendly guide, which covers everything you need to know to create a beautiful ceremony and to prepare for married life thereafter.
It addresses both the practical and spiritual aspects of planning a Catholic wedding, including giving an authentic perspective on what marriage is, a review of the promises you will make during the wedding ceremony and an overview of the various elements of the ceremony itself, both within and outside of Holy Mass. It also covers some common questions and concerns, including the requirements of mixed marriages. Each chapter concludes with suggested practical tips, points of reflection and a prayer.
This invaluable resource is ideal for anyone who wishes to get married in a Catholic church, as well as for marriage ministers and catechists to use with couples, as they accompany them on their journey to the altar.
