Catholic Wedding invitation wording (Nuptial Mass version)
Hi everyone,

Is anyone having a full Catholic mass? Have you worded your invitations yet? I'm getting ready to start working with someone on etsy to do my invitations and I suddenly went into panic mode! LOL

Hi Jessica!

I don't know, I think I am nervous of writing the wrong thing and not portraying the fact that it's going to be a mass (long ceremony!) to the guests. I know I'm supposed to include "nuptial mass" in it but it seems kinda wordy.. I dunno.. I think I'm going with (see next post):

We are having a full Ctaholic mass as well and sent my invites out. You can send me a PM if you want and I can tell you what we put on them...

I'd don't think its necessary to include the nuptial mass line. I'm guessing most of your family is Catholic anyways and will expect a full mass and the Catholic Church location kind of gives it away if not.

We are having a full Mass ceremony and I wanted to make sure everyone knew to expect an hour and fifteen minute reception. Plus I love the traditional "Nuptial Mass" and "Holy Matrimony" being in the wording. This is what our invitations are going to say,

Mr. and Mrs. Thomas W. Hughes
request the honour of your presence
at the Nuptial Mass at which their daughter
Deirdre Elizabeth
and
Mr. Kyle Christopher Collins
will be united
in the sacrament of Holy Matrimony
on Saturday, the sixth of November
Two thousand ten
at three o’clock in the afternoon
Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church
900 West La Habra Boulevard
La Habra, California

I was just thinking, the invite is long and wordy, the guests will have a good indication of how the ceremony is going to be...long and wordy! :)

Deirdre, you have a great point... it is going to be long and wordy. LOL! :) I like how you mention the sacrament - I know that is such a big deal (at least to my church) because it emphasizes more than a wedding.

hmmmmmmm

Jessica - immediate family is Catholic and a few close friends. Everyone else is different. The priest strongly encouraged it because we are both Catholic and our immediate families are. Ahhh where to draw the line?! :) Maybe I will change it to "Saint James Church" and take out the Catholic part, but leave the nuptial mass part.

Having a full mass and ceremony too. It's all about the sacrament of holy matrimony. For us the church ceremony is everything. Just wish I could make it more special, alot of people only think of the reception. If you or anyone has a thought , i welcome it.
