In my experience, most churches will just charge you a higher fee to get married there if you are not a member of their particular church.  The church we are getting married at just encouraged us to look for a ‘home’ church, whether it was theirs or not.  I’ve been to a lot of Methodist churches, and they seem to be one of the more ‘accepting’ denominations.  I wouldn’t worry about it too much!  Good luck!

A lot of chruchs give first priority to members for dates and almost all charge more money if you’re not a member.

Try to find a nondenominational church. Or I know a coworker found a Catholic church that she really liked because the one she usually goes to a rude and they just told her to fill out a form. I know that I wasn’t an official member of the church I have been going to since I was born so I just filled out the form. I think if you find a church you like just ask and tell them the situation that you aren’t from the area but would like to get married there. You might have to travel for prewedding counseling so you might want to find out if you can do that locally. Good luck and don’t stress about it.
