I can think of a couple of reasons:  One attends the regular daily Mass at their parish and later in the day they attend a Requiem or Nuptial Mass.  

That's how my wife and I understood it. We got married on a First Saturday so we went to a First Saturday TLM in the morning, and our nuptial TLM in the afternoon and received Holy Communion both times. Father said it was okay.

That sounds fine of course: a good reason to receive is that your in the state of grace and it's your nuptial Mass!

But you also could have not received at the first Mass, the reception of Holy Communion on a first Saturday 'counts' even if it's a different liturgy. This is obviously the case when a feast supercedes the usual First Saturday liturgy.

Of course nothing you did is wrong, and I don't want to tell others what to do. I am just one of those people who doesn't receive Communion even every Sunday, even if I'm in the state of grace. I try to receive if I'm (a) in the State of Grace, (b) have fasted (from midnight), © have made appropriate preparation before Mass, (d) have confessed recently, and (e) haven't received in the last few days.

I accept the teaching that daily Communion is beneficial, but I don't think I'm in the state where it would benefit me. I think it would make the Eucharist seem commonplace, whereas rarer reception helps me to deepen my devotion. In the future I may receive more often, but I don't think I'm ready.

I think Our Lord calls each of us to a different kind of spirituality, so long as we're in conformity with the teaching of His Church (I'm male btw! - one of the previous posters was confused as to my gender).

Personally, frequent communion has been a real cornerstone of my relationship with Christ, deepening and flourishing since I first rediscovered Him. In fact, it is one of the major reasons (along with confession) I came back to the Church.

I don't think I could ever feel that the miracle of the mass were "commonplace" - there's just something so wonderful about it. I'm including a picture of the service - I know some of you get uppity about vestments, but this is a Baroque church (not "Baroque style") and yep, it was a reverent NO, in the vernacular of this country (Maltese).

It's been a blessed night, praying for the holy souls and our dear departed. I hope you've all had similar experiences over the past feast days.
