Marriage preparation requires a minimum of six months. Notify the parish in plenty of time.
- Above all, begin your plans with your parish. Do not put a deposit on a reception hall before you contact the parish office. The date you want may be filled or there may be unexpected complications.
- Parish shopping is usually not a good idea.
- Make God a big part of your marriage and of your wedding day. “A wedding is a day, a marriage is a lifetime.”
