Hi everyone, I grew up in a Lutheran church my whole life (and still attend one now). My grandmother is very attached to it (and the pastor, kind of like in a 'what he says goes' type way). My fiance did not grow up going to church very much and has no set beliefs. I am excited about wedding planning and would like my pastor to officiate but I have begun to see that maybe HE would be making all the decisions (he already refused the song I wanted to walk in to).
To avoid any further dispute (before I get to far into my planning) does anyone know the LCMS "rules" for wedding ceremonies? If my wedding is altered to the point where I am unhappy about it I will need to find another officiant.
