In response to late weddings, written by Constanza on June 29, 1998 at 18:51:58
] Everybody was married at late hours, with a few exceptions. The mass was done away with, because otherwise the ceremony would have been too long and tiresome. I asked about "Wedding Masses" and she said that if you wanted to have them, you would probably married in the morning.
] Perhaps the prescribed hours were limited to some countries?
No, I think it's what was said earlier-- the limit of 8-12 had to do with the mass because you had to fast from midnight before in order to have receive holy communion. No mass, no need for the morning restriction.
However, did you find out if the ceremony was performed by a priest? Was it a religious ceremony at all, or a civil one (or do/did you even have such distinctions in Argentina)?
