PROTESTANT WEDDING

PROTESTANT WEDDING

It is like a Catholic wedding, but also fundamentally different from it, for it is not a sacrament (Protestants only receive two sacraments – baptism and communion). A wedding is primarily a civil matter, although it recognizes a divine institution, because it is the backbone of the family. Therefore, the newlyweds ask God, to bless their union in a service conducted by a pastor, when all pray for the intention of the bride and groom. The rite includes reading the Bible, chants, homily and blessing, which the pastor gives. Communion is not given.

The remaining customs do not differ from the Catholic ones.
