I wanted to be married in the church. My childhood church preferably. But my wedding date was the date they hosted the sacrament of confirmation and could not accomodate a wedding on the same day.
I tried a sister church of my parish and the person I spoke to was super rude and told me I HAD to be married in my own church otherwise i would have to join their parish instead. Oh and I would have to have been a member of their parish for 2 years. 2 Years!!!
This left me a bit upset and I hastly gave up and decided to have hte ceremony at the venue.
Now I am feeling a bit sad that I am not getting married in a church.
Anyone else have any weird situations like this regarding ceremonies?

If getting married in a church is a priority, you do have to be willing to work with them and, ideally, choose a date based on when the church is available. We came up with a shortlist of preferred dates and brought them to our priest to see when it might work. We ended up having our pick of three of the dates we liked. That was the first step in our planning, before looking for a reception venue or anything else.

Fiance wants to eventually get married in the church. We can’t right now because he would have to get an annulment first.

@MsTargaryen: IF this is really important to you… for religious reasons. You should make inquiries about getting married in the church sometime in the days BEFORE your Venue Wedding (it could be quite small… you 2 and perhaps your witnesses, or maybe a couple of family members)
The Venue Wedding then would be the one for EVERYONE to witness. Plus it would probably take a lot of stress off for that big day… and as you are already married you can forego all the “traditional” stuff that many hold to (ie not seeing each other before the ceremony etc…) which would make it easier for pics etc.
Something worth exploring perhaps.
