Ask the Editor: Church Wedding for a Non-Member?


I’m not exactly a member of any particular church but still would like to have a typical church wedding (too afraid it may rain at an outside wedding). So…do most churches allow you to use their place for a wedding without being a member? Sasha, Orlando, FL

Churches vary, depending upon denomination, on whether or not they allow non-member weddings, the rules they have associated with those (some require counseling or use of their minister to officiate the ceremony), and the costs.  I would suggest that you first pick your favorite church in the town you would prefer to be married in.  Give them a call and ask them about their policies and costs.  If they can’t help you, they can probably at least refer you to someone who can.
