An altar date is the most endearing moment that couples eagerly await because of two major things: First, this is the moral and legal binding agreement  between two distinct individuals that is somehow an assurance that love conquers all in times of the most difficult challenges their lives, as husband and wife. Second, a marriage is their spiritual accord with God that they will both cherish one another in accordance with the holy covenant of the Supreme Being and the Roman Catholic Church.

Choosing a Wedding Church

All couples dream of the happily-ever-after weddings on a magnificent and classical church. But the place’s beauty shouldn’t be the only thing that a couple needs to consider. A lot of factors should be lay down before finally saying, “Yes, this is the church for us!”

Location is still the first thing to consider when picking up the church for the wedding. It should be close to available reception areas, it should be accessible (unless the couple wants an out-of-town trip and it would just be wise to check in a hotel for the event), and lastly, it should be near the guests too. It might be the couple’s day but they also need to understand a wedding wouldn’t be as special if the people close to their hearts couldn’t be there to witness it.

Another factor to consider is the cost of the church. Weddings are the best reason to splurge but in today’s economy, it is better to be practical. Always make a budget, which most wedding coordinators would do, but if the couple is handling it on their own, always put into consideration which parts of the wedding needs more budget, and which parts can be cut down a bit.  The couple may be ready to splurge and be a runner-up for the wedding of the year, but after all the glitz and glamour; a married couple should also have enough saving left.

The least factor couple considers is the parking space, but in fact, it should be one of the most important. Just imagine a wedding of 300 guests with only 10 parking slots. That would be a disaster. The guests would have to park on their own spots a few blocks away, walk all the way to the church, and then walk back to the car to get to the reception. Of course, the couple have their car right there waiting, but be sure the guest would have a good time as well. They are there to celebrate with you, if they are put into so much hassle, it wouldn’t be impossible for them not to be in a celebratory-mood afterwards.
