Q. 1. What is a Nuptial Mass?
A. 1. A Nuptial Mass is a Mass which has special prayers to beg God's blessings on the married couple. It is celebrated to the Wedding ceremony.
When both parties are Catholic and can both receive Holy Communion, a Nuptial Mass is highly recommended. The priest will discourage a Nuptial Mass in a situation where one party cannot receive Holy Communion.
While a wedding can be celebrated at anytime during the year, during the penitential seasons of Advent and Lent couples are asked by the Church to consider the special nature of these times and keep it simple.
On certain days of the year, weddings cannot be performed with the Mass. Those days are the Eastern Triduum (Holy Thursday to Easter Sunday), Christmas, Epiphany, Ascension, Pentecost, Corpus Christi, and any solemnity that is a holy day of obligation.
