Has anybody gotten married in a Catholic Church even if you don't attend mass?

DH and I were married in a catholic church even though I am not catholic and DH doesn't attend church (but did go to catholic school all the way through).
DH had to apply with the priest for a certificate of dispensation to marry me in the church but it was just a form. I cannot remember if we had to do pre-martial councilling or if it was just strongly recommended. We did it through Centrecare.
Just call the church you want to marry in and ask to book it, they will tell you what you need to do.

I was married in a Catholic Church and my DH wasn't Catholic, (he was baptised in the Uniting Church, so just needed to show his Baptismal certificate) but no need for a dispensation. That said, we attended the pre-marital counselling with the Father and made the promise to bring up our children in the Catholic faith.
Due to some frequent moves, we didn't attend mass at that particular church, however the Church has a lot of significance to our family as it was my Mum's family church etc.
We chose not to have a nuptial mass as well, because we didn't want the wedding to be intimidating to any non-Catholics etc.
Insanity, Ring or visit the Parish Secretary of the Church you're interested in and tell them you're interested in getting married at their Church and they will give you the 'run down' on what you need to do, if it's viable etc.

I know of a couple who are getting married in a Catholic church and they are not Catholic. She just likes the church! They do have attend classes of some description though and they did have to pay an amount of money also!
