My fiancé and I are having trouble deciding what to do for our wedding ceremony. I am Catholic and my family is adamant that I should get married in the Catholic Church. My fiancé’s parents were forced to marry in the Congregationalist church because the Catholic Church and the Jewish Synagogue would not allow them to marry on account of theirs being an interfaith wedding. I know things are different now and my fiancé and I could get married in the Catholic Church today, but his parents are still a bit hurt from the way they were treated and they do not want my fiancé to get married in the Catholic Church. I can't say I blame them, but now my fiancé and I are in an awkward spot because no matter what we do our either his parents or mine are going to be upset/ hurt.
To make things even more difficult, my side of the wedding is driving from across the state to attend, and the closest church to the reception site is a Catholic Church, literally 30 seconds away. We considered an outdoor wedding at the reception with a Catholic priest, but it is impossible to find a priest who will marry outside of a church. We've also considered an outdoor wedding at the reception site with my fiancé’s Congregationalist minister and perhaps a priest to give a blessing, but I am not sure if a priest would be willing, and even if a priest would give a blessing at a Christian interfaith wedding what if it rains outside?
Does anyone have any suggestions to help us out?
