My fiance and I have already booked our reception venue for our wedding next August. The venue is just perfect and we feel it really matches our personalities. I have always dreamed that I would have my wedding ceremony at the church I grew up going to, which holds a very special place in my heart. Though my fiance is not at all religious, he has stated many times that he would support me if I want to have our ceremony there.
However, what I've heard from many people (and have experienced as a guest) is that it is logistically much easier to have both ceremony and reception at the same venue. My fiance really likes the idea but says I should do what matters to me. I really want my guests to be happy and have the day to go as smoothly as possible. However, I still want to be true to myself and have my faith journey represented on my wedding day. HELP!!
Sorry for the long post. Any advice is appreciated.
