@MrsMcInnis2Be:  Are you religious? Maybe its just me but if I were not religious at all I would feel strange getting married in a “house of God.” But if you are at least somewhat religious, and the church is letting you get married there despite not using a clergy member, I would say go for it! Do what you feel comfortable with… it is your special day and you deserve to be in charge of every detail.

The church looks gorgeous by the way!

I will be honest with you and say that I think you should not be married in a church unless you are religious. Your ceremony should reflect who you are. I am concerned about the potential element of dishonesty here.

… however. I do also realise that churches are buildings of historical interest, and that one way to preserve these historic buildings is by using the money they take in through weddings for conservation.

I think that you should consider why you want to marry in a church. If it is not for a reason of conscience, I think that you should compensate the church accordingly in your donation, and justify yourself by saying that your donation will help maintain the church buildings in their present state.

At least try to think this through, and to act ethically with your choices, whatever you decide.

@MrsMcInnis2Be:  Oooh. I’m getting married in Moose Jaw next month. Wish I had seen this beautiful church back in the early stages of planning! πŸ™‚

I’m getting married May 25th at Minto. Our photographers are from Regina. My future sis-in-law co-owns a photography business and they take gorgeous photos! Where is your reception going to be?
