Selecting A Different Church

Many brides and grooms want their wedding day to be more than memorable, and this includes the building where they will be married. While both may believe in the same faith, they might not necessarily attend the same church. Some brides or grooms prefer to have their wedding at a church they attended when younger, or they may prefer one in a different city than where they live.

When a couple chooses a church within their religion but other than the one they normally attend, it is not usually a great obstacle to have the wedding ceremony there. As long as the pair is in good standing in their regular religious institution, they will be able to obtain permission to hold the ceremony in the church of their choice. Church members who regularly attend services at a particular location the couple has chosen will be given first choice of dates, and this may force the couple to compromise on their planned wedding date.
