So we finally booked a place for our reception and we immediately informed our pastor of the date. Our pastor congratulated us and it wasn't until a week later when he told us that there was another wedding at our church on the same date and their ceremony is at 4:00 p.m. He mentioned that they had booked a month ago (for some reason I don't believe him).
Now I'm extremely upset because I wanted to have our ceremony at 4 p.m. followed by the reception at 6:00 p.m. (oh and did I mention that the other couple are not members of our church).
My pastor proposed that we have our wedding ceremony at 2:30 p.m. followed by cake and champagne at the church lounge with some church members that are not attending the reception and that the other couple should have their ceremony at 4:30 p.m.
Now am I wrong for being so upset. Shouldn't we have precedence because we are members of our church. I feel that our ceremony will probably be rushed because there is another wedding right after ours. I'm also concerned that there is too much time between my ceremony and my reception.
What should I do?
