~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
So Chris and I had already planned on not getting married at the church that I belong to. First of all I haven't been in a super long time because I don't like the priest their and second he is not Catholic. So I didn't feel like dealing with that whole situation about how I am not active enough in the church and how Chris is not Catholic. So we looked into his church which is Methodist. Everything was looking like it was going to work out. I had contacted the lady who helps out with the wedding, the dates that we picked more than likely were going to be opened, me and my mom and Chris's mom are going Monday to meet with the lady at the church....like I said everything was going fine. Until I got home tonight.......
The lady at the church sent me some information about having your wedding at the church. Now I am not sure if its like this for all Methodist churches but their are some rules that I am just not happy with and has turned me off completely and made me really upset. First off is that ALL music has to be approved by the minister!!! THAT INCLUDES CEREMONY MUSIC!! And it also said that the ceremony music has to be Christian music!!!!!!! I am not saying that I was going to have my brides maids walk down the isle to rap, but I wanted soft sweet music, preferably Disney music, but that looks like a no go!!! They are super strict on the decorations for the ceremony, and you can ONLY throw birdseed outside for the send off!!!! There is to be NO flower petals on the floor of the church, so no decorating the walkway!!! You can only use their candles for the ceremony!!!! There is NO alcohol allowed ANYWHERE in the church or the reception site!!!!!!!!! So that means no toasting to the bride and groom with Champagne!!!!!!!! The photographer can only take one picture of me and my dad walking down the isle and the same when me and Chris are walking back down together, I mean come on what is that????? And then it said something about how its an inconvenience for others to take pictures in the bridal suit because the photographer is there trying to take pictures...hello, I think if you were a photographer you would understand that other people want to take pictures of the bride on her wedding day. UGH I AM SOOOOO MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am sooo disgusted and bitter about this that I don't even want to go Monday to meet with this lady, because I don't want to have my wedding there!!!! I am just so sick its not even funny!!! Why do they have to be so primeval??????? Oh I am just so mad I could spit!!!
So should I just buck up and have the ceremony their and have a reception somewhere else?? I could look into that, I guess. I would just have to deal with the rules of the church. I think whats really bugging me is the reception rules. I want it to be fun and I am afraid that there will be people checking on us to see if our music is the approved kind or if anyone is toasting us with alcohol.
I am just so mad because now I am back to square one and I have no clue where we are going to get married. :o(
