Having a Latin TLM but was wondering if there is any protocol for an Eastern priest to participate (wife-to-be is Eastern). I don't mean concelebrate, but if there's a blessing or something he could do after (for example), have him sit in choir, and preach to the in-laws in their native tongue that would be awesome. (Would love to incorporate some Easterness into me wedding - sorry Latins).

Thanks smile

Since there is no concelebration in the TLM, there’s no place for the Eastern cleric to participate. Although the Latin pastor could allow the Eastern presbyter to give the homily.

I was referring to more if there is some sort of blessing(s) the priest could give. Is there a book of blessings analogous to the Roman Ritual?

There is such a book, but it’s highly irregular for the Eastern priest to offer the nuptial blessing during a Latin liturgy. The Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches, at least in the context of concelebration, directs the ministers to avoid liturgical syncretism (c. 701). All are to follow the liturgical books of the principal celebrant.

Of course, I'm not in possession of all the facts: but if the bride-to-be is a member of one of the Eastern Catholic Churches, surely the crowning ought to be celebrated in her church, by her pastor, in her rite and this for VALIDITY!

An EC married by an RC *priest* is validly married.

The problem is when it's a deacon, which fails.

Isn't the bride's parish strongly preferred over the groom's, though?

So you're saying that an EC married by a (RC?) deacon is not validly married?

This is probably true, though I can't substantiate it. However, there may be circumstances in a particular instance which make the wedding at the bride's parish difficult or impossible.

yes; there was a wave of those going through the tribunals some time back.

In the RC, the couple are the ministers of the Sacrament of Matrimony.

In Byzantine practice, the priest is the minister of the Sacrament, and it cannot be conferred without him.
