Ok, I have decided to attend the Divine liturgy at Sunday.
I look forward to it, but have to admit that am a bit anxious about the whole thing too as I haven't been to an Orthodox Church ever before...

Is there anything I need to keep in mind upon attending?
And how do I approach the priest afterwards?
Does he walk into the sanctuary after the liturgy and all I have to do is to walk up to him or is it like I have to walk to his office?

I'm a bit introverted so this isn't easy for me to be honest...
Feedback is highly appreciated:)


Here is a guide that many churches are using.

It may also help you to understand that there will likely be no distinct stops in between the chanting and singing, except for the homily that comes in the middle of the service right after the Gospel reading. My priest likens it to wading out into gentle ocean waves; it is far better to let them wash over you rather than for you to fight to keep your head above the water.

I ripped on Punch for calling the Papacy an "anti-Christ" a few months ago.  When I heard about the synod, Punch was the first person I thought of, oddly.

Except perhaps on the rarest occasion, Old Believers marriages almost invariably occur outside of the fasts, and certainly not during Great Lent. Sunday mornings tends to be the day of choice and parties last into Monday evening.

Unless one of the those days happens to be a strict fast day, such as the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, it's unlikely that your scenario would occur. And if indeed a fast day was in there, they simply wouldn't bother scheduling the wedding then. After all, who wants to party on a fast day?

Well then, that settles it I suppose.
No it doesn't.  Nothing is settled until Punch arrives and gives us the low down on marital fasting.

Ya, you'd be hardpressed to find any Coptic priest or bishop that allows marriage during fasting season or days.

And "consummation" as far as I'm aware, theologically, is the Eucharist, not necessarily the marital bed.  It used to be that a wedding was a whole liturgy with the Eucharist, not just a one-hour wedding service.

Suppose a couple were to marry during Lent, would they have to wait till easter to consummate their marriage? Wouldn't kissing the bride be inappropriate during a season of mourning?

If they get permission to marry during Lent (I don't know how it is for you guys, but for us that's one of those things that, IIRC, can only be authorised by the Primate), I would think the permission is "all-inclusive". 
The (at least general, but i feel absolute) is that marriages cannot be peformed on a fast day, so it would be impossible to do it during lent so this would be a non-issue.
