I looked into the catedral as well so I checked out their website and it said so long as one of you are catholic you may have your ceremony there. You should check it out, it pretty much has all the info you need. It is all in spanish though just in case you don't speak:)
First of all, El Convento is a wonderful place to have your wedding celebration. Is one of my favorite wedding venues. Great service and food. Great place for wonderful and unique photographs.
You can married at the Cathedral but you may have to "convert" to catholic. You can check the requirement in your local catholic church because they will be the same.
It would be easier to have a non denomintional wedding than a catholic. A catholic wedding has to be on a catholic church while a non denominational can be anywhere.
Hope that helps, if there is anything we can do to help, please let us know.
I am getting married at el catedral on july 27th. My fiance is catholic and I am,not. He just has to sign a statement swearing helk raise his kids in the catholic faith Youlk so have to take m
Marriage classes at your local parish.
Yes, you can get married in the catholic church, just do the homework. La Catedral will provide you with all the requirements... And trust there are many of them. In my case we are both catholics so the documentation was double. I'm also having my reception at El Conveto... They too do very nice denominational ceremonies. Also know that is you are both Americans (or Puerto Rican) you can get your marriage license here in he states versus getting it in PR. So you have that option too. I'm sure you will make the best decision. Good luck!
And, to add to what Jeanie said, you will have a blast of a good time!
Thank you all so much for your replies! We were planning on meeting with the lady at El Catedral who handles this, but I'm happy to hear there are others in our same situation who have been able to marry there!
