Ceremony and Vow Ideas
Priest to Bless Our Marriage?
My fiance and I were both raised catholic, but have both since lapsed in practicing. Since religion is not an important part of either of our lives, we are having a non-religious person officiate our ceremony which is being held at the same place as our reception (i.e. not a house of worship). I know my dad is really sad about this, as he has gotten more religious in his older age. Is there any ways to have a priest come and "bless" our marriage, either during the ceremony or something during the reception, without us having to agree to raise our kids catholic (we don't want to lie) and without doing the pre-cana? We are not opposed to religion, and I'd love to make my dad happier about our decision.
