Hi, I am Catholic and my fiancée is Protestant Christian. We plan to get married soon but we both agree that we want to give respect to each of our own beliefs. With this we agree that we have two weddings. The first one would be Catholic and with families only and the second one would be the Christian wedding will all our friends and guests.

How can we go about this since Catholic Law dictates that the Catholic wedding be performed with the actual signing of the marriage contract? If this is so, what happens to the 2nd wedding which is a Christian wedding?
