My Nephew is getting Married

He turned gay when he was in college, so nobody is surprised that the fiancé is another man.

The problem is that we are strict Catholics. The wedding will be held in an Episcopalian church with a woman priestess!

My twin brother (father of the groom) is supportive of his son and insists that all sibs and cousins be present for the ceremony. As I am the only other gay in the family, relatives are imploring me for guidance.

My husbear is a "gay rights" type. We are hosing the reception in our historic Victorian mansion. It will give a needed not of TRADITION to a modern ceremony.

How can I navigate these stormy seas?

What exactly is the problem OP? Where is the storm? It is a wedding. You attend the wedding, give your blessing and enjoy the reception. Your brother has the problem of expecting sibs and cousins to show up for the wedding.

Did someone expect a Catholic Church to bless a gay marriage? How are you possibly a “strict Catholic” when you’re married to a man, OP?

What the hell is a “gay rights type?” Every gay person that I know could be called that. Are you against “gay rights” OP?

What the fuck is the point of this trolling?

He turned gay the moment he was conceived and came out when he was in college

There's no bride, why would there be a need for any? I guess each groom would have a best man.

If you pay enough, the Catholic Church will give anyone an annulment. I suspect if the price is right, the Catholic Church will do whatever you want including a gay marriage.

Will one or perhaps both of them wear white for the nuptials? Have the remained chaste prior to marriage? If not, that may explain why they're not getting married in the catholic church.

Instead of bridesmaids maybe the guys are having Grooms-hags at the ceremony?

Will there be the ceremonial removal and throwing of the jockstrap at the reception?

You should buy one of these and loan it to him for the wedding. It's something new, borrowed, and blue! And since it's coming from you, it ticks the "something old" box as well. How versatile!

Send all the antimacassars to the dry cleaners first.

Make sure the caterers will be using your Grand Baroque silver and Royal Doulton china. You don't want any mid-century modern Fiestaware at this event. You may need to add leaves to the sideboard.

Since you will have a house full of young people, you may need to to replace the curios in the china cabinet with books (don't worry, they won't touch them).

Given the informal nature of most episcopalian weddings, leave the formal things for inside. Outside, some paper Chinese lanterns and folding chairs will be sufficient. Hell, they probably will have a dj instead of live music, so prep the neighbors or somebody may call the police on your reception! You will be sued if anyone gets drunk and has a wreck so may I suggest two free drinks and a cash bar? Your husbear can check id's and chuck out the drunks.
