Haven't been on here for a while... trying to expand my business/sell a house/plan a wedding/live in two places at once. Life is a rollercoaster!
OH and I found a lovely venue a few weeks ago and have kind of set our hearts on it... we've changed our minds so many times I just want to put the deposit down now before either of us do any more research or find anywhere else. We like the venue so much we're even happy to change the date!
The issue is, we live in Winchester, the venue is around the Hook area. Consequently meaning if we get married at the local church it would be a good 30-40minute drive to the venue. So we have looked into getting married at a more local church to the venue. I am not particularly religious but I would like to get married in a church (it's not a fairy tale dream or anything like that) I just feel like it's the right thing. OH was brought up going to church so has his beliefs too but neither of us currently go to church on a regular basis. He would also like a church wedding but I know he wouldn't be majorly upset if we couldn't. We have been in contact with the church local to our venue and they have said it shouldn't be a problem but obviously we would have to attend their church for 6 months. I don't mind doing this at all but I am worried that they will expect us to attend every Sunday for 6 months, I don't want to be rude and say to them "we can't make it every single Sunday" I really don't want to offend or upset anyone.
Part of me is now saying... come on consider having a civil ceromony at the lovely venue we've found, but I know I would prefer a church wedding,
Question is... am I being selfish? Any married people out there that are glad/regreat having/not having a church wedding.
Basically what are you all doing and why?!
Any response will be much appreciated.
