Not sure which church to go to?
I am getting married in a Catholic Church for my boyfriend. I have learned so much on here. I am confused on what to do as far as which church to start attending. He grew up going to St. Andrews, but hasn't attended in years. He goes to Mass on occasion when he visits his parents who now live an hour and a half away (different church from St. Andrews). I want to get married in another church about 20 minutes from St. Andrews (closer to where I would like to have my reception, and historic and pretty). He said we can start going to St. Andrews this Sunday since it would be easier to deal with since they know him and his family. But, I want to get married in another church. He doesn’t mind getting married in another church by the way. Also, I am concerned that the churches I want for an October wedding (morning) may not be available anymore. The other church I like is out of town in the mountains and historic/pretty as well, and is also a popular church to get married in.
Basically, I just don't know if we should start going to his church while I find out if the others are available and tell his Priest our plan, or if that would offend his church? Or if it’s even possible to find out about dates if we aren’t members there yet? I just don't know what to do. We are not officially engaged, but in the very early planning stages since apparently everything gets booked up so quickly. We will be soon though!
Thanks so much! Hope what I wrote wasn't too long and made sense!
