    Twice, and he says we will meet with him more closer to the wedding.  But I estimate it will only be one or two more times. We completed our requirements almost a whole year in advance.

    I met with our priest at least 5 times (I was doing RCIA at the same time). For our situation, there was a lot to go over and things to arrange since our reception was held at the church hall.

    3 in total - twice with our old pastor who was originally going to marry us, and once with the new pastor to go over details near the end.

    I'm going to say six. I lost count somewhere in there. We didn't do pre-cana classes though, just a weekend retreat.

    Alright, I was trying to figure out if we were out of the norm, I think by the end we will have met with the priest 5-6 times, but that seems to be pretty typical.

    Once so far to set up the initial plans.  We have our first pre-cana day this Sunday (the second in two weeks) but that is done through the diocese, not our individual parish.  We'll meet with him after pre-cana is done and we've obtained our cert's from our home parishes.  My guess is we'll meet with him once more closer to the wedding to go over final details.

    Once, and we get married in about 5 weeks. Cathedral priests can be quite impersonal :(

    Once which was very informal since it was during the 1st Sunday of the month breakfast. Priest had not yet met FI. We have written and talked to him on the phone to confirm readings, music, ceremony, etc. (FI and I live 5 hrs away from my hometown church) The week before the wedding we will have a meeting with him to discuss everything in detail.

    Once thus far, and we'll only need to meet once more about 2 months prior to the wedding to go over the readings we picked.

    3 times.  Once to book the date, the second was after the marriage prep classes to start all the forms, and then last week to go over all the details and give him the marriage license and everything else for the day of.
