FI and I are Methodist and getting married in the Methodist church. FI really wants to take communion at the wedding. I have never been to a wedding, outside a Catholic wedding that has had communion. I appreciate the symbolism and the sentiment for his reasons, but I still have reservations. Has anyone done it?
Some concerns I have:
several of my BMs are Catholic. I know they would not want to take communion but I don't want them to feel awkward when everyone else does. The pastor said he could make an announcement in a way that would basically tell everyone to come forward, and if they don't want communion they can send their well wishes and move on kinda thing, I just feel with them being up front it might make them feel weird.
Also the pastor suggests we be the ones handing out communion to our 250++++ guests, it just seems like it would take a while. On top of that I am afraid guests will want to stop and chat kinda thing, and how am I to tell them to move foward?
I think my biggest reservation however is being the one to give communion to my guests. I just don't feel like I could do it. Almost like I am not spiritually ready to serve communion to others? I am this way with praying with others outside of FI, and I am still very very timid to speak in bible studys. I am getting better, but its still hard for me and I think this is just another extension of that.
So has anyone been to/ done a communion and a noncathloic wedding? Can anyone make me feel better about serving communion to others? What do you think of communion at a wedding?
Love is like infinity: You can't have more or less infinity, and you can't compare two things to see if they're "equally infinite." Infinity just is, and that's the way I think love is, too.
