Has anyone had to have two weddings due to religion?

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to finally be able to plan a wedding. Although I just started I’m already a bit stressed. I do have a question for anyone in a similar boat. My fiancé’s family is very catholic as I am not. They are forcing us to have a wedding in a church. This wedding will be very very small and I don’t want anything too extreme. After that wedding I am planning one that I am involved in and get to pick all the details. I am not having many family members come to the church wedding but I will have all of them be invited to the wedding that I am planning. Since I will already be married at the wedding I am planning do I have a ceremony with my bridesmaids or just have a reception. My bridesmaids will not be at the church wedding so I am not so sure what is best if anyone has been in the situation and has some insight that would be great thank you

    Is your family/side not allowed or wanting to enter a Catholic Church ?

    The Catholic church typically won't allow you to get married in it if you are also planning a separate ceremony outside of the church as getting married is a sacrament.


    Why not just have the church wedding? Either that or put your foot down about what you want to do to get married.

    Many mixed faith couples have two ceremonies. We are having a joint ceremony with a Hindu priest and Christian non-denominational officiant.

    Many of my friends have had two separate ceremonies- sometimes one the day before or one before lunch, another before dinner and then a dinner reception to celebrate both.
