I’m now a bridesmaid for a friend who wants to get married next year. Her issue is that she wants to get married in a church (and her mom, who is paying, is absolutely insisting on a church or chapel), but she doesn’t know where to do it. She’s Catholic, but her fiance is divorced, so all Catholic churches are out of the question. Do any of you lovely Dallas bees have any suggestions on a traditional-looking church in Dallas that would allow non-members to marry there? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

@LecheLady: Her fiance is divorced after being married in the Catholic church, and his first marriage wasn’t annulled. The Catholic church will not marry them.
She’s looking for a church in Dallas proper. Any other leads?

there are lots of nondenominational wedding chapels in the area.
It’s not in Dallas but my current favorite from online searching is the Rose Chapel in Fort Worth.

Do they have any interest in joining a church? They shouldn’t do so just for the wedding, but if they’re looking for one this might be a good time to check some out. We’re the buckly of the bible belt so there’s a lot of choices out there.
How big will her wedding be? Perkins Chapel at SMU is a popular choice, and it’s very pretty.
I haven’t been there, but Munger Place was recently renovated and is beautiful from the outside.

@HobbyLobbyist: She’s Catholic and has no interest in going to another church. The Church just won’t marry them because he’s divorced.
Perkins Chapel is actually their first choice right now, but it’s completely booked for all of next year until the football season begins, and they won’t announce the football season schedule (and thus when they can do weddings) until six months from now. They aren’t willing to wait that long. I’ll mention Munger Place to her, though!

There is a church on Greenville Ave that we looked at – Unity Church. Maybe her mom would be ok with that? I looked at them, and also Munger Place (which is beautiful!) because I have a church that I go to, it’s just not in a church building, we rent office space. I also wanted my pastor to be the officiant, and Unity would let you do that, I don’t remember about Munger Place. Munger Place is definitely more traditional looking though, and I’d be willing to bet that parking would be significantly easier there.
