i'm trying to decide between doing a full mass for the wedding or just doing the "abridged" ceremony at the church. i would love a full mass, and there is plenty of time btw ceremony and coctail hour to allow for it. the only thing is, my fiance isn't catholic (plans to convert though, but not til after we are married and more settled) so he can't receive communion. would this be weird? having a full mass with communion, and the groom not receiving. this is basically the only thing holding me back from having a full mass.
