Banns of Marriage 

Public announcement during a church service of an intended marriage. The Banns are "published" on three occasions to determine if any matrimonial impediments exist. The practice is optional in the Episcopal Church. A form for publishing the Banns of Marriage is provided by the BCP (p. 437).
