If my brother is marrying a non-Catholic, can they have an outdoor wedding?

Full Question

My Catholic brother is going to be married next summer to a non-Catholic, and they would like to have the wedding outside. Is that acceptable?

Answer

If your brother’s non-Catholic fiancée is not baptized, the wedding may be celebrated in any suitable place. If she is baptized, the wedding is ordinarily to take place in the church; however, the bishop may permit the wedding to be celebrated in “another suitable place.” See canon 1118 of the Code of Canon Law.
