Catholic Weddings - The Traditions of Catholic Weddings

By Lynn Rader

It's been said "A wedding is a day, but a marriage is a lifetime." In the tradition of the Roman Catholic Church, a marriage is also a Sacrament. Thus, the marriage ceremony is rich in tradition, and reflects the sacred nature of the marriage bond. The Sacramental aspect of Matrimony recognizes that the newly-wedded couple has entered into a sacred covenant with God as well as with one another.

In a beautifully expressed "Exhortation Before Marriage", the couple is told that they are "about to enter upon a union which is most sacred and most serious. It is sacred because it was established by God Himself....this union will bind you together for life in a relationship so close and so intimate that it will profoundly influence your whole future...."

In the Catholic Faith, the Sacrament and the blessing are imparted to supply all the graces necessary to live out the marriage. Again from the Exhortation: "...whatever sacrifices you may hereafter be required to make, make them generously....love can make it easy, and perfect love can make it a joy. We are willing to give in proportion as we love...Nor will God be wanting to your needs. He will pledge you the life-long support of His graces..."

In Catholic tradition, a marriage involves two baptized people--one or both Catholic. It is a calling for the couple to live out the marriage in a permanent, faithful, and fruitful manner. This means the marriage is intended to last until death, is free of adultery, and is open to the gift of children.

A valid sacramental marriage requires the officiation of a clergyman at the wedding of a man and a woman, witnessed by two people. The bride and groom are the ministers of the sacrament. It is their pledge which validates their union. Marriages are usually witnessed also by family and friends. Thus, it becomes a public sign that the couple freely gives themselves to one another in the presence of God.

Traditionally, all the guests are seated and the attendants walk down the aisle to join the waiting groom. Then the bride is escorted down the aisle on the arm of her father or other significant male figure. The father lifts his daughter's veil which covers her face, kisses her on the cheek, takes her hand and gives it to her soon-to-be husband.

The priest invites the couple to the foot of the altar and begins the prayers, inviting the guests to join in.

Readings are given by family or friends of the bride and groom. These Sacred Scriptural readings--one from the Old Testament and the other from the New--have been selected in advance at preparation sessions with the priest. Usually these readings reflect upon the marriage covenant; one of the most beautiful is Saint Paul's letter to the Corinthians where the true meaning of love is explained. Another beautiful verse is the reading which speaks of the union of man and wife as "two become one flesh."

After being blessed by the priest, the rings are exchanged as a "sign of love and fidelity". A kiss seals the promises spoken in the wedding vows.

Traditionally, the Roman Catholic wedding rite occurs along with the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which is called a Nuptial Mass. After the prayers of the faithful, the gifts of the Eucharist are prepared, and the Mass proceeds. The celebration concludes with the reception of Holy Communion and the closing prayer and blessing.

Before the pronouncement of the new Mr. and Mrs., in Catholic tradition, the bride or the bride and groom approach a statue in the likeness of the Blessed Virgin Mary, considered the Mother of God. While a soloist sings a version of the beautiful hymn, "Ave Maria",(Hail Mary,usually in Latin, the language of The Church), the bride or couple place a floral bouquet at the foot of the statue. This beautiful gesture represents the request for Mary's prayers for the couple since she interceded for the couple at the wedding feast of Cana, where Jesus performed His first miracle.

It is good for the couple and all to remember this promise from the opening Exhortation: If the couple lives in true love and unselfish spirit, they can "expect the greatest measure of earthly happiness that may be allotted in this vale of tears. The rest is in God's hands." May each couple so blessed remember these inspiring words and strive to live out their blessed marriage in love for one another long after the wedding day is over.
