Remarriage: Do I Need an Annulment?

Q:

My fiance was previously married in a non-Catholic religious wedding ceremony. He divorced. We are planning on being married in a Catholic church. I have never been married. Will he need an annulment from his previous marriage?

A:

Good question! He likely will, especially because it was a religious ceremony, even if it wasn't Catholic. For a final verdict, the best person to ask is your officiant at your church, who will tell you exactly what you and your fiance need to do.

Do You Have to Have a Maid of Honor?

I have three women in mind to ask to be my bridesmaids, but I'm unsure about whether I want to ask any of them to be my maid of honor, or whether I even want one to begin with. Do you have to have a maid of honor?
