Do Catholic weddings have bridesmaids?
Also, do bridesmaids have to be Catholic?
@pierogi: You don't have to be Catholic to be a bridesmaid. It sounds like your friend will have a full Mass, so expect to be there for about an hour. There will be periods when the Catholics are kneeling or standing. You will be at the front of the church, so you should ask your friend what she wants you to do.
Likewise, what are Catholic wedding traditions? The ceremony consists, at least, of three biblical readings, the exchange of vows, the exchange of rings, the Prayer of the Faithful, the nuptial blessing, prayers and appropriate music. The Roman Catholic wedding is rich in tradition and liturgy.
Similarly, you may ask, who can be an attendant at a Catholic wedding?
A: Although the Catholic Church prefers that both the best man and the maid of honor be Catholic, only one must be. Your maid of honor cannot receive the Eucharist, but she can stand up for you and follow the readings. To be absolutely sure of your church's policy, call and ask your rectory.
