I actually had a question on confession, and the other thread reminded me... and I didn't want to hijack it.
I live in Colorado, the wedding is in Ohio on Nov 27. I am starting my drive home Nov 19, and I should be in Ohio Nov 21.
Both churches -- the one I attend in Colorado, and the one I am getting married at -- only does confession on Saturdays. I won't be in either town the Saturday before the wedding since I'm driving across the country, and won't be able to do it before the wedding on Nov 27 because confession is at 4:30, wedding is at 2.
Is it ok to do Confession the Saturday before I leave (Nov 13, which would be two weeks)? That seems too early. I would have liked to do this much closer to the wedding. Do priests often make exceptions to do it at a different time? Are you doing this/Did you do this after the rehearsal, or did you have to go at the normal times?
