Getting Married

A wedding is a very special occasion in the life of a family. It is unlikely that you will include most of the members of your church family in your actual ceremony. However, your congregation can enrich your marriage. After all, a church wedding is a marriage that takes place in a congregation rather than simply in that congregation’s building. The congregation enjoys celebrating the goodness of God that is shared on such joyous occasions.

Here are a number of documents that can help you plan your wedding:

  • Trinity-Guidelines for a Church Wedding
  • Wedding Service Suggestions
  • Marriage Vows – a variety of marriage vows from different hymnals and traditions
  • Marriage Planning Form – useful information to document before meeting with the pastor
