Hi girls, long story short, just met priest and he won't marry (sacrament etc) us because OH was not baptized. Already sent out invites because they took booking and just asked was either married before!! Anyway said he will do a Mass with a blessing. What is that? Can I turn up in my dress? Will I walk down the aisle, have rings exchanged? Actually all i'm worried about is whether I need to go and look for another outfit? Will I be in the big dress squeezing into the pew with all the other guests. I've heard some priests do the whole ceremony as if it was a "real" wedding but omit the sacrament, this fellow seems set on not having a pretend ceremony. any advice on how others handled this? thanks
