Hello, So we have a dilemma, my fiances church is booked on our date. We can't move the date due to family out of town, and other friends and families weddings. I know we are kind of backwards but finding a reception place was a nighmare so I'm kinda happy we did get it first. (yes it is our dream reception and we are paying for our weddings ourself so we do not have a big budget.. this place is perfect!) We already have the DJ, caterer and photographer booked for that date.
I'm am from CT so My church is out. Since we moved to upstate NY we haven't been devoted church goers. We both are catholic and have made our confirmations and want to get married in a church. I have been calling around asking curches local to where our reception is to be held. I get a lot of rude answers that we should have picked the church first, and that we need to be paritioners of their church to get married there. Does anyone know how to find a church. Are all catholic churches this rude? Mine back home would welcome anyone open arms.. they may have asked for a larger donation, but they would let you in! We can attend a few masses but we are not all that close to where the church would have to be. If it comes down to it we may be able to have the ceremony outside the reception but that is the last resort. Any nice churches around Troy? Please help!
