The Sacrament of Marriage is a sacred act which has to be respected with utmost reverence. In accordance with the Marriage Guidelines implemented by the Archdiocese of Cebu, here are some important information to remember:
Part 1:BEFORE THE WEDDING
Part 2: DURING THE WEDDING
Only sacred music is allowed to be sung during the wedding. Secular and popular music are not allowed during the liturgy and within the church building. No music during the marriage rite.
The entourage must dress modestly befitting the sacredness of the Sacrament. The dresses of the bride and the entourage should cover the shoulders and back, extend below the knee and they must have no slits.
One pair of principal sponsors should be practicing Catholics. Additional sponsors are charged extra (depending on the church). The flower girls, ring bearer and arrhae bearer should have had their first Holy Communion already.
This is just a general guide for the church requirements. They may still vary according to the specific parish. It would be best to visit them directly to get more information. Check out some of the popular churches in cebu.
