Why A Church Wedding?

A religious ceremony held in a church is an excellent way to bring sacred traditions to your union and it is an excellent way to proclaim your love for your future spouse while also honoring your religious faith and the beliefs you were raised with.

A church wedding is not just the joining of two people in matrimony but it is the spiritual or divine side of love, faith, commitment and devotion that is expressed. A church wedding can be a blessed occasion for anyone to be a part of and for anyone to behold.

Church weddings have their share of rituals such as singing, the reading of Bible verses, the lighting of candles, etc. Many Catholic weddings are long as Mass is observed after the vows have been exchanged by the married couple. Mass involves everyone in attendance and not just the priest and the newlyweds. Having a wedding in a house of worship brings a level of spirituality to a wedding and for many this is what they want and will cherish for years to come.

There is more than one reason why a church wedding might be right for you and your groom or your bride-to-be.

  • If both of you are deeply religious and share the same religious beliefs then you might want to plan a church wedding.
  • If both of you attend the same church and are active members of the church
  • If you were raised in the church and it has always been your desire to be married in the church.

Perhaps neither one of you has any preference about whether or not you have a church wedding but if it matters greatly to one or both sets of parents. If this is the case then be kind to your parents and treat them with the utmost respect by honoring their wishes and planning a church wedding.

If you are very committed to the religion you were raised in and you feel that you would regret not including religion in your wedding ceremony then make plans to have your wedding take place in the church that you attend and are dedicated to.

Church weddings honor religious traditions, beliefs and values in families and for many this is extremely important. If you practice your religious faith and plan to raise your children in the same way then have a church wedding. If your faith is central in your life then a church wedding is the way to go for you and your beloved.
