Charlene, 

Did you receive a reply to your question.  I am curious for an answer too.

I am sorry this is so late with a reply. I changed computers and just got my
old email back.

Subject: [h-cost] early 20th Century Franco-American weddings

Sorry, this is a bit off-topic, but I'm hoping someone who studies the time
period can help me.

While working on my genealogy, I noticed that many of my Grandmother's
generation married on a Monday (1930s; Biddeford, Maine). I asked one of her
still-living sisters why that was and she didn't know; that's just the way
it was done.

I later found this is a book about the Franco-Americans in Biddeford, Maine:
Weddings too retained much of their ethno-religious significance for the
Franco. The wedding was usually held on Monday morning.

Of course, the author didn't provide any additional information or cite this
in the footnotes. (One of the faults of the book is the amount of
information he presents without explanation.)

Does anyone know why French Catholics in the early 20th century married on
Mondays?
