Guests are requested to congratulate the bride and groom with applause in place of rice, birdseed or confetti. Please do not have your guests throw anything that has to be picked up after your wedding. There is often more than one wedding at St. Barnabas on a weekend. There is also confessions and Masses to be prepared and celebrated. Please respect our sacred environment and the other events being held at the parish. You are not permitted to have rose petals or anything else thrown inside or outside the Church. Because of Diocesan policy and insurance regulations, runners are not permitted down the center aisle.
We ask that you either have pictures taken or a receiving line after the Wedding, but not both.. Too much time is taken up when couples greet all their guests and then take pictures. Please choose only one.
