I Welcome you all to this www.churchweddingpreparation.com website. This site was created to help couples prepare for their church wedding and marriage. While this site is primarily geared as a resource for a Catholic Church Wedding, I am sure that couples who are planning a Christian or Non-denominational weddings can also find this site informative and useful.
As we all know, couples who are preparing for marriage look for guidance not only in planning the wedding service, but also in preparation for marriage. This site offers a practical and good-enough resource for couples to plan for their marriage. While it serves first as a resource for couples to plan for their wedding liturgy, it is also designed, though in a limited way, to assist and help the couples review their psycho-social-religious-emotional aspects of their existence, and to examine their compatibility and readiness to assume the responsibilities of marriage and what it entails.
The old saying goes, "A Wedding is but a day, a Marriage is a lifetime." Because we believe that Marriage is important, we are here to assist couples to really prepare themselves for this commitment. We hope that the couples will find time to review these resources, discuss and study them thoroughly, and hopefully, these resources could assist them make an informed and real decision, a commitment that will last for a lifetime.
The following pages will give you a comprehensive overview about various issues and topics that the couples need to plan, discuss and examine, as they prepare for their church wedding and marriage. The site gives detailed information about the requirements for Catholic Church Marriage, the documents that they will need, the wedding liturgy, fees and other important information.
We wish you the best as you prepare for a beautiful wedding service, but more importantly, we pray that you persevere in your journey in life together.
