Marriage - Getting a Church

In this lesson, we will cover the process of marriage and all the things you need to know how to say in English.  In the previous session, we learned about the engagement and initial wedding procedures.  Let's now look into more depth at the marriage process.

After two people agree to marry, there are many things to plan.  There are many different things you can do, and depending on your budget, you will have more or less.  I will give an example of the marriages I have seen around me.

The first thing you need to do after you set a date is find a church.  In eastern cultures, marrying in a church is not as popular, but in America, a large percentage of marriages still take place in the church.

You will need to call a church and ask if you can rent there place for a marriage.

"Hello.  I'm going to get married and I was wondering if you rent out your church for this purpose."

If they say no, you can say thank you and good bye.  If they say yes, then you can follow up with more questions.

"I was looking to get married on June 15th.  Will your church be available on that date?"
"What Saturday do you have available in the month of June?"

If timing is an issue, then you will need to tell them the time.

"We would like to get married at 1:00pm.  Is that ok?"
"We would like to get married at 4:00pm.  Does that time work for you?"
"We are pretty flexible with the time so I will take whatever time is available on that date."

After a date and time is confirmed, they might ask you to meet and get all the details from you.
