(1) The vestments are arranged as usual for "Low Mass." As to the color of the vestments, it is advisable to make inquiry of the priest.
(2) The maniple, however, is placed on the altar or altar steps in the sanctuary, for ready use after the marriage ceremony.

2. ON THE ALTAR.

(1) Everything is prepared as usual for a "Low Mass."
(2) Decorations of a special nature, provided of dignified character, are permissible on the altar.
(3) A small table conveniently placed on the predella (platform) for the holy water pot and sprinkler and the tray for the  ring. If the altar boy, however, carries these, the table is not necessary.

3. ON THE CREDENCE TABLE.

Here all is arranged as for "Low Mass." An extra missal or book for nuptial blessing where customary is provided.

4. IN THE SANCTUARY.

The kneeling benches for the bridal couple should be placed in the sanctuary. Two additional benches may be necessary for the "best man" and the "bridesmaid."
