Question by Jim: Realistically, Is A Wedding Ceremony The Place To Make a Statement on Why The Couple Shouldn't Marry?
It works great for movies and soap operas, but in real life how does this work out?

Is a wedding ceremony the place for a relative to storm up on the altar and say that the husband-to-be is cheating with one of the bridesmaids.. as an example?

    That’s just some old fashioned tradition that has no real meaning today.

    that only happens in the movies. real life doesn’t play that way. most couples do not even have that part of the traditional ceremony in their weddings anymore.

    however, if someone were going to reveal a reason for the couple not to marry, it should be done before the wedding in private.

    My priest told me he doesn’t say it in weddings. He also said they don’t run bans in the church newsletters anymore. They just announce your wedding.
    If someone has an objection that’s not the time or place to bring it up.

    No, it’s definitely NOT the right place. Before the wedding, maybe, if you have a very compelling reason to do so, but during the ceremony is just awful.
